When it comes to choosing where and what to eat, you could say that I hardly go out of my comfort zone. This is especially true for breakfast. Since it is the first meal of the day, having a satisfactory experience with food can truly make my day, and the reverse is also true. If I am not feeling well and feel so hungry, I always want my comfort food. I know everyone of us has his/her own comfort food. For me, noodles, egg and rice will most often do.
With all the new restaurant concepts available in the metro, however, I couldn’t help but join the bandwagon of adventurous souls to see what could be out there. Recently, I got the chance to try the B & P All Day breakfast restaurant in Cyberscape Alpha, Garnet Road in Ortigas. It is among the concepts by the Cravings Group. I had a nice previous experience with Cravings and that inched up my expectations of B&P.
True enough, I found the place to be cool and comfortable with it laid-back, wooden set-up. The yellow lighting provided a relaxing ambiance, carrying the open kitchen concept where my son enjoyed watching the chef as she was preparing our meal. With its relaxing ambiance, I didn’t get into the mad mood even if the food that was served to me was not what I asked for and it took time before the correct order was served because the staff are smiling and accommodating.
I ordered Creole eggs with all-beef patty in red wine with demi glaced top with spinach and poached egg. It was served with hash brown which I wanted to be replaced with garlic rice, and yet, they still served it with hash brown so I had to order an extra fried rice for it. My son and wife ordered a pan fried bangus belly, adobo rice, egg and pickled relish.
Overall, I could confidently say that the food tasted great and really comforting. I look forward to return and by then, I am excited to see how the young chefs can create further twists to comfort home food.
