The secret is out! Crisp on 28th is now open at the Alveo Corporate Center in Bonifacio Global City. Fortunately, we were able to try quite a few dishes during the last leg of BGC Eats 2014- "Healthy Eats" edition with Denise Celdran of Edgy Veggy and Chef JJ Yulo of Pinoy Eats World.
Crisp on 28th is owned by Erwan Heussaff of The Fat Kid Inside and Ms. Carmela Villegas of Casa San Luis Pastries. A perfect team of passionate foodies, with one making sure that healthy food does not mean boring, and one that reminds us that it's ok to indulge once in a while.
Salmon Sliders (P300)- seared salmon medallions, Hawaiian buns, cucumber, lemon and mustard remoulade, capers, cream cheese
A light and tasty starter of salmon with cream cheese served with crispy taro and sweet potato fries.
We also got to try a sampler of mini Crab Cakes topped with Asian slaw of carrots, cabbage, and mangoes in a sweet and spicy honey siracha dressing.
But the stars of the night were these classic Pinoy breakfast made healthy with a twist.
Adobo Flakes (P300)- flaked chicken thigh and pork belly adobo, salted egg salsa, brown dirty rice, sunny side up and seared tomatoes
Crispy Corned Beef (P340)- spiced up crispy corned beef, garlic brown rice, sunny side up and seared tomatoes
Trio of Longganisa (P280)- home made Vigan, sweet and peppery longganisa, garlic brown rice, sunny side up egg, tomatoes and spiced vinegar
The Pinoy breakfast dishes were all served with brown rice. My personal favorite is the Adobo Flakes, while the Crispy Corned Beef gets plus points for its uniqueness.
For dessert, we were served with a sampler of cookies, brownie bars, and mini doughnuts. I really enjoyed the crunchy nutella cookies and fudgy brownie bars.
Bring together an advocate of healthy eating and living, and a passionate baker of comfort desserts, you'll have this unique tandem that will make "healthy eating" exciting and "sinful desserts" so much worth the calories. We really had a wonderful time at Crisp on 28th. I love the colors and textures in every dish, plus the beautiful presentation that looks as good as it tastes. I'm looking forward to trying out their NYOB, Chipotle Chicken Quinoa Salad and other desserts next time.
