So, as I may have mentioned here, I now work at Bonifacio Global City, more popularly known as The Fort. And, right across our office is The Fort Strip. It’s basically a complex, perhaps one of the earliest built (I remember coming here for the first time way back in 2008 or 2009 while still working for the magazine) in the now fast-changing BGC landscape.
Anyway, so, there aren’t a lot of food options here at The Fort in the economical side. But, if on certain days you feel like pampering yourself for a job well done, well, there are some really good restaurants at The Fort Strip. And the good thing is (well, at least for me and my colleagues!) it’s just a mere five minutes away now that the road widening has been completed and the barricade (almost) removed. So, truth be told, we’ve visited The Fort Strip quite a number of times now. The most recent one being yesterday, in what was called “Appreciation Lunch” for the hard work of the staff in recent events. Before that, it was a a stress buster, for the same recent events. ;p
So, without further ado, I give you some tasty treats (pictures at least) we pampered ourselves with at The Fort Strip. Hover on the photos for description. As usual, I hope you had food already before reading this. You have been warned!
It’s a Filipino restaurant. Casual to fine dining. I think they have party areas on the second floor. Great food. Good amount of servings. Fantabulous desserts! Favorites like kilawin, kare-kare, tokwa’t baboy, crispy pata, ensaladang talong, and other specialties become more special.
Fast food Korean restaurant. We went here to take our mind away from the world of words for a bit. Good price. Value for money. Loved the rolls.
We mainly go here for drinks on a Friday night, or whenever we feel like it! Hahaha It’s a pub, serving European beer. Draft and bottled. We always look for Stella (Belgian beer) or make do with Beck’s for draft. The 330ml is 110 I think and the pint is 180. It’s ++ of course. And the food that we order are mainly pica-pica or pulutan food. But these are filling, enough for dinner substitute.
So, as I said, if you’re willing to shell some more bucks for a great eat out or one-round drinks, definitely worth spending it at The Fort Strip. More raids soon, I hope. And as always, will be glad to share pictures and thoughts with you! Or visit the Fort Strip and let me know what you think! Happy eating!
