When In Manila and looking for a unique type of dining experience, check out “Twenty One Plates”!
Twenty One Plates gives 21 reasons to come back over and over and over again until you try every one of their 21 dishes. The whole concept of Twenty One Plates is to serve you 21 specialized dishes to your liking!
Now you may be thinking that this is a small menu selection, but believe me: 21 was already waaaaay too much for me to choose from! Each one of the 21 dishes served here is in a world of its own and though I tried my best to sample everything on the menu, I think I was only able to try about a dozen yummy dishes (I was incapable of walking or speaking for three hours after this orgasmic food tasting session).
Anyway, here are just a FEW of the 21 reasons you should try the food at Twenty One Plates Restaurant in BF Homes, Paranaque:
(***Note that Twenty One Plates menu items are subject to change and they do change some items every quarter.)
Twenty One Plates – Plate # 1
Kimchi Rolls – Php200
This 8-piece beef bulgogi and sushi rice rolls wrapped in kimchi was formerly on the starters menu, but is now on the main menu because it can be a satisfying meal on its own.
Also, this Twenty One Plates Original deserves the top spot on a short list of 21. Serves one as a main meal or two to four people as a starter.
