The Penthouse 8747: a speakeasy bar in Makati

This place is located in Makati, perfect for a night out after work hours. It has an elegant vibe as it was inspired by 1930’s Art Deco ala Great Gatsby. Located at the rooftop lounge, you can see the magnificent view of Makati at night. Definitely a stress reliever while having a good drinks. They also have a band on selected days. When it comes to food, they also offer delectable dishes as well as to their drinks.

Starting with their Golden Crab Cakes: it has Fresh Blue Crab Meat with Sriracha Remoulade Sauce. Fried to perfection with a bit of a spicy taste. This did not disappoint. Every bite tasted really good as the Crab Meat was generously molded into balls.
Italian Sausage and Prosciutto Flatbread: consists of Prosciutto, Arugula, and Balsamic Sauce. Probably their own version of Pizza, I like that it was topped with Italian Sausages evenly. It tasted sweet and a bit salty at the same time because of the sauce and the Italian Sausage. Overall, I like this dish because I love Pizza. 🙂
Pulled Pork Bun: with Mantao, Asian Barbecue Sauce, Sour Cream and Salsa. Oh! My favorite of all Pork Buns I’ve had. This tasted so good as you can tell the pork was marinated in several hours. The Sauce made it more memorable. I will definitely go back just because of this.
The Seared Tuna and Zesty Risoni:  Tuna with Furikake and Black Sesame Breading, Olives, Cherry Tomatoes, and Spinach. This dish is perfect for you seafood lovers. I could say that this dish was ok. It was not memorable for me though.  But I must say that the Risoni is very flavorful.
Steak and Side: 300g Margarette River Striploin, Creamed Corn and Fries. It was perfect as I like my Steak well done.  It was very tasty. Very aromatic and just delicious.  The Creamed Corn and Fries was perfect combo.
Cheesecake ala Misch: Blueberry Coulis. This was their own Blueberry family recipe and it was really good. You must order this when you get to this place and you will thank me later.
Now for the drinks, I highly recommend their Red Sangria. It consist of Red Wine, Brandy, Fresh Apple and Orange Juice with Star Anise.
They also have their own version of Blueberry Cheesecake cocktail which you must also try.
