The Red Piano – open mic while tasting different cuisines

The Red Piano – open mic while tasting different cuisines

Music and Food, have always been a perfect combination to me.  I used to frequent restaurants and bars with live bands as I enjoy watching musicians play their instruments and I love to have good food, too.  Imagine having a great meal and listening to good music, for sure this would be your best bet, too!

The Red Piano Restolounge was formed by a group of college friends from DLSU who wanted to have a place where they could hang out and enjoy excellent fine dining food. With its casual settings, it sure is a place where people can share stories, songs and music.

There is an open mic, so if you feel like singing your hearts out,  feel free. The Lounge also features performer every night from Monday to Friday, accompanied by a pianist.

For the food, they offer eclectic and they used only the freshest ingredients in the market.  They promise to provide the most authentic French, Italian, Spanish and American cooking as much as they can.

Boeuf Bourguignon (Php1,100) – the brown stock undergoes 48 hours of simmering to produce the deepest flavor in this dish. Served with imported pearl onions and baby carrots, this French dish is hard to resist. Imagine all the flavors cooked together for that long period of time.  The taste just burst in your mouth. It goes perfectly well with the Angel Hair pasta.

Osso Bucco (Php1,500) – an Italian favorite, uses real veal shanks imported from New Zealand.  Another dish that I’d highly recommend.  Another flavor of the 48 hour brown stock with Pinot Grigio.

Carbonara with guanciale(Php510)- made with pecorino romano and parmegiano reggiano cheese.

Paella (4-5 persons – Php1,490, and 6-8 persons – Php2,980) – made with “Bomba” rice found only in Calaspara, Spain.

According to Chef Carlo Llave, there’s only a couple of restaurants in the city that uses this type of rice because of the price. But he doesn’t mind as this provides the most authentic taste of paella.

Beef Salpicao (Php320) – Australian Sirloin, garlic, olive oil. That’s fork-tender meat in savory sauce.

One Big Cracklin (Php280) – From pig’s skin that’s boiled for 3 hours to remove the fat , dehumidified for 14 hours , then deep fried for a few seconds.  I just can’t stop myself from eating this.

Clam Chowder – the signature dish from San Fran. A leveled-up chowder served on an artisanal sourdough bread bowl, with hickory smoked fresh clams.  They mean it when they say it’s their signature dish.  Totally the best Clam Chowder in this country!

After dinner, we stayed for a few more hours and was able to enjoy the music provided by the singer and the pianist.  Some sang their songs as well. This place is really perfect for late night bonding with friends.  A couple glasses of Sangria to cap of the night.
