Healthy Comfort Food at Crisp on 28th

I got really excited when me and a few bloggers had the opportunity to sample the food of Erwan Heussaff, Chef Peter Ayson, Kate Cruz Hernandez and company's new restaurant, Crisp on 28th. They revealed to us that it was named that way because Crisp means the food is healthier and its not the crispy type of crisp. However, they are not a vegetarian restaurant as they just mean the food is made healthier. I hope I made some sense there.

When I first entered, I noticed the restaurant has such a cozy ambiance. In fact, there were some people who were killing time working on their laptops. It really makes for a chillax place. The servers were also very attentive so I presume they were trained well. You can't help but glance at the cakes they offer too and one of the bloggers took advantage of the cakes being offered at 50% off from 2 to 5 PM. It's like a buy one, take one offer.

The night started off real swell with the Courtyard Salad (P280). It was my first time seeing salad with steak and its a great combination. The steak is even bits of chargrilled hanger steak as it is mixed with greens, cucumber, French beans, walnut, broccoli, roasted beefs, quail egg, herbed croutons and country dressing.

The only thing I didn't like about the Adobo Flakes Plate (P300) is that it contained liver but that's just me since I don't like eating liver. It is hard to see at first what is in this dish but it contains flaked chicken thigh and pork belly adobo, salted egg salsa, brown rice, sunny side up and seared tomatoes. It also has that irresistible aftertaste that will push you to get more.

One of their best sellers is the Roasted Sambal Chicken Thighs (P385). I loved the taste of the chicken breast when it was mixed with sambal sauce. The brown rice, cucumber, okra and sunny side up egg complimented the chicken perfectly. Two thumbs up for this dish.

Another healthy dish is the Smoked Salmon (P450). The fresh salmon is mixed with greens, cream cheese, capers and tamyao. It is truly a fresh catch if you know what I mean.

When me and the other bloggers talked about what we ate afterwards, we all agreed the Longga Plate (P280) was the best among them all.  In fact, it is the best longsilog version I have ever tasted. There's no wonder why Erwan is widely known for his breakfast meals.

Remember when I said Crisp's food are healthier than usual? One good example was when they have kamote fries instead of french fries in their Falafel Salad Bites (P290). When I first tasted it, I knew that I entered a restaurant serving comfort food. The crispy falafel is covered with curried egg mayo underneath Hawaiian bun along with white bean hummus and mixed greens.

The Cheesecake (P190) has a unique taste to it. I won't spoil to what the chef put underneath the cake as I want you to be surprised when you get to try it. I'm sure you are going to love it when you do.

Since Crisp is located at the ground floor of Alveo corporate offices, I can only imagine the real estate agents here buying donuts to relieve stress. It's not going to be a good feeling when you're not selling anything but the donuts would send you at a far place so you would forget that nasty felling. Choose from a wide variety of flavors including Brown Butter, Cereal Glaze, Peanut Butter Jelly, Banana Cream Cheese and Peanut Butter Banana. These amazing flavors can be bought individually for P35 and for 5 pcs at only P150.
