Pino Resto Bar Opens New Branch Along Jupiter St. in Makati
Earlier today as I stood in front of their newly opened 2nd branch along Jupiter St in Makati, I truly felt very happy to see a 2nd restaurant to actually materialize!
During our first feature about Pino Resto Bar a year ago, we knew then that they will go a long way. When we heard about the opening of their new branch, I knew we had to feature them again to let the public know more about it!
so glad to see that Pino Resto Bar’s branch along Jupiter St in Makati is more spacious than their Maginhawa branch!
Today is indeed a day of thanks and another perfect time to celebrate with friends whom I haven’t seen for quite some time so I invited them over for lunch!
Fine Filipino Food – This is what Pino is to me! The only fusion restaurant I really dig! I’m a big fan of the very creative dishes they make and whenever I get invited to talks and when people ask me about my recommended Filipino restaurants, Pino is definitely one of the handful names I mention. I tend to be very loyal with the places I visit once I get really impressed!
For this visit, we tried out the ones we’ve never tasted….
Nori Cheese Sticks
I was so sure that my cheese buddy Badeth was gonna order this! Been eating nori (Japanese dried seaweed) since I was a kid and I loved the combination a lot!
my friend Yang enjoying Pino‘s Nori Cheesesticks
another light and creamy starter by Pino. I think their pesto dip should have more “kick” though. Must try!
Tempura Oysters and Pearls
fancy presentation! Made me wanna hit the beach soon! I noticed most of their appetizers were Japanese inspired… hmmmmm
Tempura Oysters and Pearls
as said a while ago, the presentation looked really fancy. It did taste like tempura however, I didn’t get to taste the oyster much for it was overpowered by the batter
Seafood Gambas Aligue Pasta
Too bad their Seafood Tuyo Pesto wasn’t available that day so Badeth tried this instead
Crispy Pata with Laing
I’ve been dreaming of this for the longest time! Laing and any crispy meat are some things I couldn’t resist! The laing tasted very traditional.. very much like home cooking! You have to have lots of self control if you’re planning to devour on this! lols
Nilasing na Adobong Kambing
Kuya Mel’s order! Looks very tempting! MMmmmmmmmmm
I think I should order this next time!
Crispy Hito with Ensaladang Talong
I heard Yang likes hito and talong a lot, no wonder she had this. Very satisfying she said!
Coffee Crusted Beef Belly
Pino owner PJ Lanot recommended me to try their new dish and boy was it damn good! I never thought coffee would go so well with beef! Loved the caramelized onions on the side! MUST TRY!
and for our sweets endings…
Super love! Italy meets Pinas! Whoever thought of this must be a genius!
Dulce de Leche Cheesecake
artfully plated as you can see! perfect for people who are into sweets! I found this to be overly sweet for me though
great food + great company is still the formula if you wanna bring bliss to any day!
Expect a lot of Filipino food satisfaction with each Pino experience when in Manila!
