First Bite: Draft Gastropub Manila

I always frequent Rockwell for food and I discovered another favorite few weeks back. It was quite unexpected. I was thinking of just relaxing at home that night as we just came from Coron. But R’s friends all wanted to have dinner at Draft and since we were hungry too, we decided to join them.

Hello, Draft Gastropub Manila!
I recall that I visited the Draft BGC branch a few years back with some colleagues but since we came from an event, we were stuffed and just had light snacks and a few drinks. This time, R and I ordered the Beef Pot Roast (PHP480) for sharing, Paulaner Dunkel (PHP200, 330ml) and Stella Artois (PHP150, 330ml).
I’m not really a beer person but the Paulaner Dunkel was pretty good! It didn’t have that bitter beer taste unlike the one I ordered at Brotzeit. It had a mildly sweet after taste and I like it.
The Beef Pot Roast was served next and the first thing that came to mind was that it looked small. But it was a filling dish. I loved the soft slow roast Angus beef belly. It was flavorful! Slicing through the meat requires very little effort. The roasted vegetables added texture and flavor to the dish.  

I will definitely go back and try the other dishes (and perhaps the other drinks as well).

Draft Gastropub Manila  is located at 2nd Floor, Powerplant Mall, Rockwell Center, Makati City.
