MAKATI CITY | TERRAZ BISTRO AND MEETINGS

A year ago, I had a meeting with a client whose office address is at Zuellig, the tall prominent glass building at the corner of Paseo de Roxas and Makati Avenue.  It was a working lunch at a restaurant and all I could recall is the fact that I felt sleepy after the sumptuous meal.  That was how I was satisfied of the meal.

This year, along with my constant weekend travel buddies, we were seated for dinner on the same restaurant not for a business meeting but simply to feast on the gastronomic offerings of the Terraz Bistro and Meetings Restaurant.

A group of young ladies all dressed in black with the exception of one dressed in red easily caught my attention as we enter the spacious restaurant.  They are celebrating the natal day of the lady dressed in red (quite obvious).  Each one in the restaurant came with a purpose, others were gathered perhaps for a reunion and on one corner a couple having their casual (romantic?) dinner.  And there we were gathered casually for the groups’ reserved dinner.

The busy traffic and skyscrapers of the city is visible from the restaurants’ vantage.  But the fast-paced life of the metro that surrounds does not affect the exclusivity and casual dining at the restaurant.  Time stands still.

THE INTERIORS
Top quality dishes are prepared at an open-air kitchen that is positioned at the middle.  The modern comfort cuisine is available for lunch, dinner and cocktails with tapas and sangrias at hand to conclude any guests’ busy day.

Offerings are of international standards as they cater to expatriates who works on the Zuellig Building and businessmen in search of location for closing deals and other matters for discussion.

The serving size is quite generous, which means for diet purposes, each dish will be shared by the group.  And what did we have for dinner?

The Terraz Chef Salad was first served made of romaine lettuce, Red Wine, Hard Boiled Egg, Crispy Parma Ham, Grilled Bacon, Roast Beef in light salt and pepper vinaigrette and ranch dressing.

The Sesame Crusted Ahi Tuna is a must-try.  It is a pan-seared Ahi Tuna with romaine lettuce, sliced Japanese cucumber, vine cherry tomato in sesame dressing.

As the main courses landed on our long table, there was confusion as to what eat first.  All meal presentations were gastronomically appealing.  The Buttered Tilapia Saltimbocca served with vegetable pilaf, asparagus, sage tomato sauce and grain creamy mustard sauce is I guess everyone’s favorite.  It was consumed immediately and so another order was placed.

Being the lover of chicken that I am, the Pan Seared Boneless Chicken Cream Emince with side dish baked potato, peppered asparagus and creamy mushroom and the Truffled Herbed Chicken & Creamy Mushroom that is, marinated grilled chicken breast with three kinds of mushroom and red wine sauce, were the closest to my plate.  I am uncertain if I consumed it the most in the group.

There’s a dish that I find unique on the menu and it tastes good. It is the Grilled Bacon Wrapped Pork Medallion & Foie Gras served with Macaire Potato, Sautéed Vegetables, Mushroom Ragout and Merlot Sauce.  Pork wrapped in bacon, how about that?

The Spicy Terraz Corned Beef Adobo with garlic pumpkin, sweet mashed potato and crispy kesong puti may be good for breakfast.

And the restaurant serves pastas as well, with its best-seller Simple Saffron Spaghetti, that is, a home-made spaghetti pasta with fresh spinach and smoked grilled asparagus as our sampler.

For a complete dining experience, the Pavlovaz, (more like a fruit salad for me), and the Crepe Samurai filled with mango and banana and served with caramel sauce and cinnamon sugar were served as finale.
