Barley Gastropub

I was invited to a food tasting to this restaurant around Sgt. Esguerra and really had fun and was very happy tummy again with the food they served us. 😀


Fried Brie (P375)

(With guava jam and truffle oil)

It has a distinct taste that I did not expect that this food would have.

Rockin’ Oysters Rockefeller (P245)

(Topped with spinach, cream cheese and herb crust)

This particular food is very tasty from it’s cream cheese to the oyster itself. The spinach and herb crust has different taste also that makes this one of my favorites. 🙂

Risotto Balls (P295)

(With mozzarella stuffing and marinara sauce)

The mozzarella stuffing is very delicious ad well as the sauce.

 Roasted Bone Marrow (P295)

(With crostini, garlic confit, Himalayan pink salt and fresh lemon)

This death-difying is very delightful. You could really taste the “taba” of the bone marrow. hihi.

Big Plates

Lamb Shank Osso Buco (P520)

(With gremolata, roasted vegetables and mashed potatoes)

The lamb is very soft. The gremolata and vegetables are appetizing and it also has nice presentation.

 Foie Gras Burger (P690)

(With onion jam, gruyere, kosher pickles and potato fries)

The patty is very savory and soft. It has different taste than other patties sold in the market.

Crackling Pork Belly (P325)

(With peppercorn sauce, roasted vegetables and roasted potatoes)

It is gratifying and enticing to the eyes. The sauce is quite delicious and is different.

Beer in the Butt Chicken (P450)

(With BBQ sauce, roasted vegetables and roasted potatoes)

This is a mouthwatering dish as well as the very tasty sauce.

Angus Rib-Eye Cheese Steak and Fries (P720)

(Topped with sautéed onions, mushrooms, sweet peppers and mild cheddar. Served with potato fries.)

This is very scrumptious and very tempting to eat.Yes it’s a steak and it’s very soft and exquisite. And this is another favorite included on my list.


Truffled Mushroom (P350)

(Tomato ragout, mozzarella cheese, fresh mushrooms and truffle oil)

The crust is very soft and the mushroom is ravishing.

Chorizo & Sweet Peppers (P325)

(Tomato ragout, mozzarella cheese, chorizo pamplona, onions and sweet peppers)

It’s just an ordinary pizza, no difference.


Warm Chocolate Cake (P190)

(With salted caramel)

This dessert is very tempting to eat but it’s okay because it’s sweetness is not that bigtime that you would have diabetes. hihi. The salted caramel on the side makes it more delicious.

Frozen Grapes (P190)

It tastes like and Ice candy. hihi.

Cucina Andare: Crunchy Belly

Crunchy Belly owned by Kat Reatazo

As seen above, it looks yummy and I can also say that it is very crunchy and delicious, they live to what their name is. It is very tasty even though you don’t soak it in vinegar, others need to be soaked just to be tasty. As far as I know this is one of the best of its kind. I recommend this Crunchy Belly to you guys because it’s one of a kind. You won’t regret you P120 trying this one. So try to visit them at Cucina Andare every Thursday/Friday/Saturday from 4pm-3am at Glorietta Park.

Cucina Andare: My Yellow Kitchen

My Yellow Kitchen owned by Marion Vasque

They offer 3 Mushroom Pesto Panini, I did not like this because it’s not so delicious.   It is only P80, very affordable.

The Chicken Adobo Cream Pasta is the best ever, it’s very tasty and delicious. I would also include this on my favorites list. You could really taste the adobo in the pasta. The beef is soft and easy to eat and is also very tasty. It is very affordable with just P100 per serving.

I want you to try the Chicken Adobo Cream Pasta because it’s their best seller and I’m sure you won’t regret buying it. This is another favorite that I would want to go back and try more and more. So try to visit them at Cucina Andare every Thursday/Friday/Saturday from 4pm-3am at Glorietta Park.



Cucina Andare: Ping Gu Mushroom Fries

Pin Gu is owned by Jewel Joven. Pin Gu means Oyster Mushroom in Chinese. It started when her sister-in-law fried mushroom and they loved it and decided to put it in a business. Their mushrooms are from Nasugbu, Batangas and are freshly picked.

Freshly picked mushrooms

Dip-fry cooking

And this is it, Mushroom Fries

The sauces consists of Garlic Mayo, Tomato Ketchup, Gravy and Sweet Chili.

They offer this Mushroom Fries with the affordable prices.

This is a new favorite on my list. I would definitely go back and have some more. Aside from being a healthy food it is very delicious and you won’t get sick of it. I highly recommend Ping Gu for a very unique product, mushroom fries. So try to visit them at Cucina Andare every Thursday/Friday/Saturday from 4pm-3am at Glorietta Park.
