Located in a busy street of Carlos Palanca, Makati. The Belle and Dragon not only is a great place to have some drinks after office hours, but they also serve really great food.
Here’s what we had:
Wanton Nachos – The very tender ground pork taste so good with crispy Wanton topped with Mozarella and Cheddar Cheese. The Hoisin Sour Cream Slaw and Sriracha Aioli Sauce are the perfect combos.
Soba Salad – The Soba Noodles were al dente. Sesame Dressing’s smell will make you want to dig in more. Mix it well as there are Shrimp and Mangoes underneath.
Chicken Karaage Baos – These were my favorite. The Fried Mantou Buns were a bit sweet but the saltiness flavor of the Chicken gave it a very distinct taste.
Salt and Pepper Squid – Chopped in bite-size. These little munchies were crispy and has the right saltiness to it. It’s perfectly paired with beer.
Salmon Aburi – Fried Brussell Sprouts and Bonito Flakes then sauteed in Malt Vinegar. I enjoyed this dish because it was very tasty.
Double Dragon Burger – The Black Angus meat was well seasoned. It was thick and tender. The Cheddar Cheese and Caramelized Onions inside it make it more succulent. You can ask for additional Foie Gras, Fried Egg, Bacon, or Sauteed Mushrooms. I highly recommend the Foie Gras. Crazily delicious.
Jerked Chicken – The Peanut Satay Sauce tasted so good. The only thing we noticed though was that the chicken was not well cooked. But you can always ask the chef to recook it for you.
House Dry Aged Steak – It was served rare but if you wanted it medium rare, you can ask them to do so. This was the bomb. Very mouthwatering for it was aged in house for 28 days. You can really taste the flavor throughout.
Herb Crusted Salmon – Served with Corn Pudding, Charred Corn, and Tomatoes.
Shepherd’s Pie – This tasted so good. The Curried Lamb made this dish very delectable. It’s like your eating a Lasagna but it was not pasta but Mashed Potato.
Masala Mac and Cheese – Not much of a fan as I find the Masala Spices too overpowering.
Poached Eggs – It was ok but did not stand out for me.
Crispy Pata – It was cooked well. Tender and very crispy. The tomatoes on the side gave this dish more flavor to it.
For deserts, they have lots of varieties and it was not just good. It was amazing!
B&D Cheesecake – Best cheesecake I’ve had in my life.
Toffee Pudding – So decadent. The kinds that melt in your mouth.
Campfire Fondue – Surprisingly not too sweet. Perfect with the crackers on the side.
Magners – This beer made from seventeen varieties of apples. That makes this beer sweetest of all I’ve tasted.
Lucy Liu – Now I know that Soju and Yakult are a great combo.
Overall, I highly recommend this place after long hours at work. They have sports being shown on screen too. I believe they also have regular gig happening every night.
