A newbie in the food scene, Grind Bistro entered F&B business on full bloom last year. It is located at Net Park Building, just a few steps away from High Street. From the outside, a high-ceiling restaurant greeted us, and took us in on a breeze.
Welcome to Grind Bistro. This is our first time to go this part of BGC, we were actually confined previously to just roaming around High Street area, so we went a little more further and found this posh place at Net Park.
Coordinated and uncoordinated tables and chairs, statement wall arts, stunning ceiling and lights made up this modern temple of foodies. One look, and we knew we’re up for something great.
While we were led to our table, these babies caught our attention. Tempted to order some of these but it’s lunch time, we need to focus on that. Nyaha.
Next to the bar counter is this little wine cellar that houses quite a number of bottle selection. This covers the entire kitchen and below this is where our orders comes out.
We thought they have this upper floor for more dining spaces/private function area. This one’s the way to the Chef’s Table. Lovely wall art right there.
We got curious and asked one of the waiters if we can take a peak. We literally took just a peak. Haha! We can see the Chefs in action, busy preparing for our foods. The area is spacious and clean.
View from the stairs. Those warm colors dominates the look of the entire resto. We cannot stop gazing up on those lights, they’re a stellar view to look at. On with the food now.
Poke Nachos (P495) – Ahi tuna marinated in soy chili and sesame, local chevre, orange and wasabi tobiko, pico de gallo, taro and sweet potato chips. This is a fresh take on Poke bowls. It’s a health-buff’s dream dish. The tuna is well seasoned, simple yet delicately good. The classic and wasabi-flavored flying fish roe is magnifique! This bowl is definitely one for the books.
Pastrami Sandwich (P395) – house-cured wagyu brisket, truffle gouda, pommery aioli on rye bread. Not only the meat is bursting from the inside, this sandwich boosts flavorful play of spices, and the gouda cheese is the cherry on top. This comes with a cup of oh-so-good potato chips. Of all the foods we got, we finished this one first. We just can’t stop munching those chips!
Crispy Chicken Wings (P295) – sriracha-spiced wings, blue cheese dressing. Sriracha-flavored wings is coming in so fast at our country’s food scene. This crispy, decadent wings are the star of the table. Not to mention how affordable it is considering the quality and quantity, it became our personal pick above Frankie’s.
Good Morning Bacon Steak (P350 each) – house-cured bacon steak, sunny side egg, garlic rice, atchara. A perfect rectangle bacon steak arrived last. We expected something really overly tasty like the bacon slab from Poco Deli. It was a bit unsuccessful. Maybe because of the name, it heightened our hopes. It was more to us as a simple grilled pork belly. Nonetheless, the meat is tender and rich.
Truffled Mac and Cheese (P350) – truffled pastas never let us down, mac and cheese never let us down. We love truffle pasta, and we definitely adore mac and cheese. So when we saw this in the menu, our heart skipped a beat. This. Is. The. Ultimate. Mac. And. Cheese. We. Had. Can we order two more? And invisible tummy expansion set please? Lol.
Iced Tea (P120 each) – we got this strawberry-ish iced tea, not overly sweetened. We muddled the lemon right away so the extract can blend right in.
Overall, food and ambiance are top-notch. Service needs a bit of improvement.
Value for money: For some seriously good food and great place, this is a worthy date place restaurant. The extra bucks can hurt a bit but it’s worth it! ?
