First Bite: Unit 27 Apartment Bar + Cafe

It is very interesting how Manila has turned from an Aristocrat-Jollibee-Max’s-McDonald’s foodie scene into one where every corner has a yummy find. At Fort alone, there are a lot of places worth visiting and every month a new one opens. I get so overwhelmed (though mostly, it’s my wallet that gets overwhelmed) just thinking of all the places I could visit. And just yesterday, I visited…

Unit 27 Apartment Bar + Café.
The place is screaming cute and it reminded me of Hole in the Wall with its charming décor.
Since I made my research before going, I found out that Unit 27 Apartment’s bestseller is its Jack Daniel’s Aussie Bacon & Egg (PHP495). It is one of the restaurant’s expensive dishes but since it made me curious, I ordered one and decided to split it into two (one as early dinner and the other half as my lunch the following day). 
The other dishes ordered were the Peanut Butter & Banana Pancake (PHP280), Truffled Fries and Popcorn (PHP350) and House Party Nachos (PHP495).
First served was my bacon and egg meal and it was huge! It was indeed good for sharing. The smoked thick cut bacon glazed with Jack Daniel’s barbeque sauce was delicious! But it was also too flavorful for the palate. I loved it with the wild rice and sunny side egg though. I have to admit, I was slightly disappointed that I only got one egg when the menu said “EGGS.”
The truffled fries and popcorn had a stingy serving for its price. But it was delicious too. They must have drizzled a lot of truffle oil to achieve that taste. It’s still not worth the price though.
I also enjoyed the peanut butter and banana pancake. The pancake was fluffy and I loved the melted peanut butter and caramelized banana! It was breakfast and dessert combined!
Last served was the bowl (rather a plate) of nachos. Again, the serving size was smaller than expected. But I guess since they use Angus Beef, it is worth it. The multicolored chips made the dish interesting but I find the beef strips a bit dry. It was also a bit spicy because of the spiced tomato ragu and volcano sauce. I’ll most likely not order this when I visit again.

Overall, it was an okay afternoon visit. Dishes were just a bit overpriced and there was a fly flying around the whole time. Oh, and the check arrived after following up four times.

I’ll still visit though to try the drinks.

Unit 27 Apartment Bar + Café is located at Ground Floor, Icon Plaza, 25th Street corner 5th Avenue, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig.
