When in Manila and you want to have a good dinning experience, head on over to Sweet Bella at Greenbelt 5!
Started 2 years ago, Sweet Bella just opened its 2nd branch at Greenbelt 5 with a wider selection of menus including some top food from Melos. And last November 27, I was one of the lucky few who got invited to sample and taste the new dishes that they have to offer.
Pink is IN in this restaurant!
We were served different kinds of dishes that night and everyone was just so excited to take a bite!

First, they gave us a drink to pump us up for the night.
Sweet Bella has their OWN mixes for their drinks which they give unique names.
Dundee Martini–vodka-based drink + watermelon
I got a Dundee Martini that night, it has a kick of alcohol and the after taste is the sweet watermelon!
After we warmed up with our seatmates, they served us the appetizerS which made me crave for more!
Different types of Oyster Dishes!
It was my 1st time (ever) to try oysters. And Sweet Bella’s Fresh Oysters did not disappoint!
Fresh Oysters + Red Sauce
My (new) favorite was the 2nd dish they served.
Fresh Oysters + Champagne Sauce! So addicting!
The crowd’s favorite and the last oyster dish.
Oyster Rockefeller (cheese + bacon bits)
After that, they served us the ever-famous Gambas, the Sweet Bella way!
They pair this up with their bread which they bake fresh everyday.
Not your ordinary bread! Super YUMMY (and TASTY)!
And after they filled our stomachs with gastronomic seafood dishes, they surprised us with the main course…
Wagyu Steak (rib-eye cut) + Garlic Mashed Potato in Truffle Oil
The steak experience really blew me off! The half-cooked meat melts in your mouth and is full of flavor. The mashed potato on the side added more flavor to the meal.
They also served us pasta which has a really unique flavorful taste!
Truffle Oil Pasta + Fried Eggplant
All in all it was food heaven at this dainty place!
Dessert. Dessert. Dessert. What Sweet Bella is really famous for!
Cakes! Cakes! And more CAKES!
Sweet Bella’s FAMOUS Macaroons
Different flavors to choose from! My favorite: Salted Caramel! YUM!
With the (super sweet and nice) Owner, Cristina Santiago-Rivera, the Chef and Mother of “Bella”
Before I went home, they were nice enough to give me a box of their famous Sweet Bella Macaroons which made me so giddy!
