Restaurant Love: Borough

It has been quite a while since I last saw R. I always organize the reunions of BOP 2008, a competition I attended way back in college, but for some reason, the reunions can hardly be called successful. *hurt*  But since R and I already blocked our Saturday that week, we decided to push through. Date. <3  
Since our minds and tummies were set on having dinner at Borough, we went on with the plan. R was very excited with the Milk and Cookies and I really miss it too. 

The place was half full when we arrived and we got the table near the stairs. We ordered Baked Mac N Cheese (PHP320) to share while R ordered the Adobo Sandwich and I got the Salmon and Brown Rice (PHP490). We also ordered Serendipity 3 (PHP200/glass), an alcoholic version of the popular Frozen Hot Chocolate of Serendipity Café in New York.
Serendipity 3 arrived first and I really tried to resist as I have nothing in my tummy the whole day. (Yes, it is quite hard to believe but it did happen and I will NEVER let it happen ever again!)  

Anyway, I gave in and had a sip. I was surprised that the chocolate syrup and chocnut taste was very faint. I guess Absolut Vodka’s taste is something difficult to hide.
Next served was the Baked Mac N Cheese and it was as yummy as ever. I loved the rich cheesy flavor. Served fresh from the oven made all the difference too as every forkful means a battle with the stretchy cheese. Slightly annoying but a very wonderful sight. 

Our dishes arrived next.

R enjoyed her Adobo sandwich though she had a hard time eating it. I did warn her though that it’s messy to eat the sandwiches of Borough.
My salmon was uh-maaa-ziiiing. I loved the slow-poached salmon with the Tahini (paste from hulled sesame seeds) dressing. The soft salmon was a great contrast to the chewier brown rice. I also loved the steamed vegetables as they used fresh ones so it tasted a bit sweet. To sum it all up, it was one great meal!
Since we got too engrossed with catching up, we totally forgot to order the Milk and Cookies R was excited about. So sorry!!! But this is a great excuse for a Borough part 2 catch up. ;) 

Borough is located at the Ground Floor, The Podium, ADB Avenue, Ortigas Center, Mandaluyong City.
