Strand Cafe in Salcedo Village Makati
We tried having lunch here at Strand Cafe one afternoon. Since it’s just few miles away from the office, we decided to give it a try. Located inside One Pacific Place in Valero, this place is just like any other fine dining restaurants. Serving a taste of Filipino and International Cuisine prepared by their Resident Chefs. The place was cozy and upscale.
Big Breakfast (Php350) – Three pieces each of Bacon, Mini Pancake, six pieces of breakfast sausages, two eggs any style, homemade potato hash and salad greens
This dish was such satisfaction to your taste-buds. There’s two variety of meats in one plate. Downside is, sausages were as so small.
Strand Pizza (Php490) – Overloaded pizza topped with Bacon, Chicken, Beef, Sausage, and mozzarella cheese
It’s indeed a loaded kind of pizza. Love the cheese on top and the pizza dough were soft.
Grilled Chicken in Pesto Pasta (Php395) – Spaghetti tossed in Pesto Basil sauce topped with Grilled Chicken
Pasta was al dente. I just wish that the pesto would be more creamy and strong as it was a bit bland for my taste even after having more Parmesan.
Seafood Marinara (Php350) – Fettuccine pasta tossed in mild spice tomato sauce with seafood. Topped with Parmesan cheese. Served with Garlic bread
With this pasta, I find it a bit overcooked along with the seafood. The sauce were sour just the way I like it.
Overall, I think they could improve more on the dishes that we tried. The service was impeccable, though. Staff were all attentive to our needs.
