Love at First Bite: Vyne

I love Girls Night Out(s). It forces me to dress nicely and be girly (though I seriously hate heels so I always bring flats in case my poor knees give up on me). Plus we get to talk about our love lives or the lack of it. One day, I got a message from my favorite Dragon Lady saying to block off one Saturday so that we could try Vyne. She added, wear something nice. (I volunteered as one of the runners of the Ethan Allen Anniversary sale then so I was a bit harassed but it’ll do.)

Hello, Vyne!
The place is located at the 8th floor of the W building with IHOP. The entrance looks cute as it is also the entrance of Hyve, one of the bars (or should I call it a club) at The Fort.
First thing I noticed inside were the graffiti or paintings on the concrete walls. It added an adorable vibe to the place.
The washroom is also charming!
Anyway, for the food, we ordered the following: Apple and Bleu Cheese Salad (PHP285), Prawn Ravioli Laksa (PHP270), Lamb Rendang Bolognese (PHP360), The Salmon (PHP450), Breaded Aji Tamago (PHP200) and Mexican Grilled Chicken Sandwich (PHP280). We also ordered two glasses of Lychee Martini (PHP280 for two glasses).
The Apple and Bleu Cheese Salad arrived first and it looked so pretty! The crispy and slightly tangy green apples went well with the sweet honey yogurt dressing. The tanginess of the bleu cheese surely made us hungry for more.

Vyne’s breaded aji tamago is LOVE!!! I loved the crunchy outside and the soft tamago inside. The flowing yolk was delightful. Paired with salmon, it was a taste of HEAVEN.
I didn’t really enjoy the laksa as it was too spicy for me. But the prawn ravioli was pretty good.

The Lamb Rendang Bolognese was slightly spicy as well but more manageable compared to the laksa. It was slightly oily as well. I loved the faint taste of coconut though.
The salmon was awesome! Okay, I’m biased again since it’s salmon but I loved that it was soft and not dry in the inside. Plus the pea puree was yummy! I also enjoyed the asparagus. Not really sure what the Jamon Serrano broth did to the dish but it was really a great order!
The Mexican Grilled Chicken Sandwich is good for sharing. This order is more on the heavy side.

Overall, it was a great night with fun company and delicious food. See you again, Vyne.
