First Bite: Paprika

I have been following the Looloo app for quite a while now and my list of must try restaurants gets longer and longer. A few posts made an impression and one of which is Paprika, a comfort food restaurant and bar in RCBC, Fort Bonifacio. I have been pestering J to go with me to no avail. Luckily, R and his ChiChi friends are game to visit.

Hello, Paprika!
The place is pretty small and it wasn’t packed at all when we arrived.
It was already a bit past 8 then so we ordered as soon as we sat down. I got the Aligue Pasta (PHP300) while R got the Chicken Tenders and Fries (PHP150) and TNT (PHP265). We also got a Lava Cake (PHP95) and a Long Island Iced tea (PHP175).
First served was the bucket of chicken tenders and fries. It was pretty ordinary but filling as it had a lot of fries.
The Aligue Pasta was okay too though it was a bit on the bland side. The lemon juice helped though. I also enjoyed the fried shrimp which added texture to the dish.
The TNT or the marinated beef sirloin bits over rice with sunny side up egg and tomato confit and alfalfa sprouts (don’t ask me why it’s called TNT) was yummy. I was originally planning to get that but R wanted it too so… yeah. The sirloin bits were flavorful and tender. It went well with the sunny side up egg and tomato confit. I also loved it with vinegar. (Oh my, I’m drooling now!)  
The Lava Cake was delightful! It was moist and oh so chocolatey. R loved it too. For PHP95, this dessert is a good deal.
My Long Island Iced Tea on the other hand was quite strong. At first, I had a hard time drinking it as the person behind the bar was too generous with the alcohol. But it tasted better when it was a bit watered down.
I will definitely be back though for desserts and I want to try more entrées. (And probably avail of their PHP399 unlimited cocktails all night.)

Paprika is located at 2nd Floor, RCBC Saving Bank Corporate Tower, 25th Street corner 26th Street, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City. Call 425.9621 for inquiries or reservation.
