Chef’s Table ♥ ♥


Although I miss the more personalized service and cooking show-theatre dining experience at the old Chef’s Table, there are many things I like about Chef Bruce’s new place.

I wish I took all of them baldies home, but then Mom would freak out.

IMG_8035Cebuana Chili Chicken Wings – nice and spicy


IMG_8038Crab Cakes – there are bits of crab shells in them and the aioli needs more sampaloc flavor


IMG_8041Hot Rock Pusit – a new take on squid, but can’t say I am a fan


IMG_8048Dinuguan – the creativity rocks but the pork is also as tough as rock Sad smile


IMG_8051Chicken Sat on Salt – tender and silky, can use more flavor


IMG_8061Chill-A-Fino – except for the ube, I find this quite ordinary


IMG_8068Salted Eggs and Minced Pork – ok lah


IMG_8055Aligue Rice and Chicken Rice – need crab fat and chicken flavors, desperately


And here are the dishes I’ll come back again and again for:

IMG_8053Prawn Aligue My Way – I don’t care that my cholesterol now exceeds 200. I am forever in love with anything crab fat.


IMG_8066Kare-Kare – melt-in-your-mouth ox tail tenderness. Ask for bagoong for the ultimate experience.


IMG_8062Kalderetang Lamb – super tender and full of that richness and gaminess I love in lamb


IMG_8056Binagoongang Baboy – now this devil is responsible for my carb overloading. It is bursting with flavors I just couldn’t stop. Hands down my favorite dish of the night.


IMG_8072Oh, I like this doggie bag, too. And this one I AM taking home.
