Yes Please Goes Beyond Bar Chow With Their New Rice Dishes
Steak rice, sisig chirashi, fried chicken, and more.
11th Avenue corner 38th Street, Uptown Bonifacio
Open daily from 6 p.m. to 3 a.m.
(SPOT.PH) Yes Please is known for many reasons—the interiors are Instagram-worthy, with plush velvet couches and neon lights, the '90s music will give you nostalgia, and the cocktails are amazing. But did you know that you can now go there earlier for a full-on dinner?
Chef Mikko Reyes (who also takes charge of the food at Hungry Hound and Niner Ichi Nana) has added more dishes to their menu and trust us when we say you have to try all of them.
Everything Nice Fries
Their Everything Nice Fries (P390) is generously sized and can easily feed your entire group. We’re talking about a huge serving of chopped steak, fried chicken, and chorizo mixed in with tangy garlic sour cream dressing and smoky charred green bell peppers. Oh, and there are fries too, but you have to dig through this mishmash before you can get your hands on them.
Garlic Steak Rice
We might have found a new strong contender in the Metro’s steak rice wars. The Garlic Steak Rice (P420) is a mouthwatering medley of USDA flat iron steak and wagyu chunks and a perfect sunny-side-up egg on a bed of rice sautéed in its juicy steak drippings. Chef Mikko said he had this every day for a week when he first started making it. You’ll probably want to do the same after trying this.
If you’re someone who can’t live without rice, you’ll need to try the Sisig Chirashi (P300), which is essentially your good
Caramelized Spam Musubi
Meanwhile, the Caramelized Spam Musubi (P190) is a detour from your usual Spam musubi. Yes Please offers it with a generous sprinkling of bonito flakes, a dollop of garlic cream cheese, and fresh spring onions. The Spam is already good in itself, so needless to say, this caramelized Spam musubi is even better as it combines both salty and sweet in one savory indulgence.
Stir-Fried Curry Noodles
Their Stir-Fried Curry Noodles (P290), for one, is a delicious upgrade to your regular noodles because of its bold, aromatic flavor from the curry, which the minced wagyu was sautéed in. Adding a touch of vibrancy and color to the dish are chopped fresh cilantro and spring onions.
Fried Chicken Thigh
The Fried Chicken Thigh (P330) could just be your regular deep-fried chicken, except the crunchy skin is done to a perfect golden crisp while the meat is extra juicy. Each order comes with thick, chunky chicken liver gravy that just binds everything together in one unique and delicious bite.
For Yes Please, catching the eye of anti-clubbers isn’t enough—with their new slew of dishes, it seems they’ll also be on the radar of the hungry dinner crowd now, too.
