One of BGC's finest restaurants, Crisp on 28th, has been around for quite sometime. They have been delighting BGC office workers and residents with their wonderful food and guess what? They recently revamped their menu with new dishes! That's right. Just when you thought their food could not get any better, it does.
We started off with the Chicken Adobo Nachos and I have to give major props to Chef Siggy Santiago-Torrente for her creativity. This dish looks like a mix of Mexican and Filipino cuisine. I loved every bit of it too.
As expected, the Mangga't Chicharon tastes really sour because of all the bagoong in it. I'm not saying that is a bad thing though. In fact, it is such a good thing because this appetizer is perfect for long meetings that are usually held at this restaurant because of its lush interiors.
Another Asian fusion dish is the Kaldereta Bolognese. Its sauce is extremely addicting especially with all that cream cheese on top of it. I don't eat pasta much but I would consider changing that because of this.
For the first time, I was served a Pad Thai that isn't mixed yet. I was not used to that but I always welcome change and this was one instance when it was needed because you can omit parts you don't like. For example, I would take out the spices in this one since I'm not a fan of spicy food.
I never thought I would see ramen containing Filipino specialty dishes and here it is right in front of me. This one contains corn, liempo and kwek-kwek. What a delicious treat this is!
My favorite dish of the night has got to be the Salted Egg and Ham Pressed Sandwich. I loved the sweet chinese ham that's in this one. The potato chips in this one were also not salty and that makes it healthy.
This dish reminded me so much of Sinigang that I actually thought it was Sinigang. I loved how tender the beef brisket cubes in it was too. It is perfect for cold weather but we are currently enter the summer season.
We ended the night with a slice of Banana Squash Cake. I loved the fact that it contains walnuts too as it adds a bit more flavor in it.
Overall, we enjoyed each addition to the menu of Crisp on 28th. There is no doubt I will be coming back if I'm in the area.
