Miss Boracay? This Eatery Is Bringing the Island Closer With Pop-Up Dinners in Makati
Did you miss their pandan pancakes?
(SPOT.ph) While everyone is waiting for Boracay's tentative reopening in a few months, some of the island's popular eateries are hosting pop-ups in Manila. Boracay restaurants like SpiceBird and CocoMama have made the Metro their temporary homes, not just to showcase what gastronomic creations the summer destination has to offer, but also to help the workers under their care. Besides SpiceBird and CocoMama, Fat Rice and Poketo are still holding pop-ups at Century City Mall's Hole In the Wall until August 15. And joining them soon in Manila is Nonie's. The Station X eatery has partnered with Makati speakeasy ABV for a series of pop-ups called The Supper Club, happening every Thursday and Friday from July 12 to 27 at 7 p.m.
You might see this Beef Short Rib Kare-Kare at one of their pop-up dinners!
Cavite-style Chicken and Pork Adobo
Tuna Sashimi Vietnamese Rolls
Nonie's has made a name for themselves in Boracay through their home-style dishes made using fresh and organic ingredients, like the pork skewers, bistek tagalog, vegan pork buns, smoothie bowls, pancakes, and more. Although no one knows for sure what they'd be serving in their Manila outpost soon, we'd love to see their Cavite-Style Chicken and Pork Adobo, with tender chicken, and pork braised for 72 hours to give it a crisp exterior. It's served on black rice with candied garlic, a poached egg, and Cavite-style adobo (or adobo sa dilaw) sauce on the side, too. Each pop-up dinner will feature a six-course menu, which will be paired with specialty cocktails by ABV's master mixologist Lester Ligon, so expect a fun night!
ABV is at Basement Floor, 22 Jupiter Street corner Galaxy Street, Makati City. For more information, contact Bea at 0920-975-8574.
