Get Comfort Food + Oysters At This New BGC Resto
Sit down and enjoy the food.
If comfort food is what makes you excited to pick up a spoon, Jones All Day in Serendra, BGC is a great place to start.
Launched with the concept that comfort food has no boundaries, Jones All Day seeks to break those borders with a menu that spans the globe and cuisines to deliver food that will warm you. Whether you're a fan of Western comfort food or prefer the nostalgia of hearty Pinoy rice plates, Jones All Day has a little bit of everything for you on its menu.
For appetizers, you can't go wrong with croquettes, especially if the potato bites are mixed with double-smoked bacon. The Smokey Bacon Croquetas (P375/5 pieces) look super crunchy on the outside but a bite reveals the fluffy mashed potatoes with the bacon. Soup is never a bad idea and the French Onion Soup (P295) is an underrated choice that shouldn't be. Slow-cooked onions deliver sweetness against the savory beef broth. Be ready for a cheesy pull from the melted cheese on top!
If you're going plant-based, try the Jones Vegan Bowl (P575). It's a loaded bowl of multiple crunchy shredded vegetables, including broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, and kale. What totally makes this bowl satisfying is the trio of what looks like meatballs rolled in sesame seeds. Don't be fooled! These are kofta balls made with soy protein that is sweet, tender, and full of flavor. We didn't miss the meat, and you won't either.
What makes Jones All Day unique dining experience is the raw bar and the incredibly fresh oysters. Sourced from Aklan, these local oysters can be enjoyed served four different ways: simply On Ice (P195), as Rockefeller (P295), topped with spicy mayo as Katsu Dynamite (P295), or Mentaiko Mornay (P295), a topping of spring onions and pollock fish roe.
If you're a true seafood lover, however, indulge yourself and order the Jones Seafood Tower (P1,295), a two-tiered array of the best seafood Jones All Day can offer all at once. It includes the Coctel De Mariscos, a ceviche-style seafood cocktail marinated in a sauce with tequila, sashimi plates of fresh Norwegian salmon, Bluefin tuna sashimi, and uni, plump black mussels, and spicy tuna dynamite that you should eat nestled in the nori sheets provided.
Craving a hearty meal that will fill you up? Consider Mr. Jones Filipino Breakfast (P350), a loaded breakfast plate with your choice of the famous Mr. Jones tapa, garlic Amadeo longaniza, or crispy smoked bangus. This is served with garlic rice, two eggs cooked your way, atchara, and slices of oranges on the side. You can also choose the Seafood Laksa (P450), a gata-based soup swimming with prawns, fish cake, mussels, fried tofu, and rice noodles topped with cilantro and fresh lime. There are some crispy fried shallots on the side that you must stir in before enjoying.
That's not all that Jones All Day offers. The bistro is also a bakery and features a retail space called the Jonesery. The bread and other baked goods are made in-house at their commissary and the products are sourced from local artisanal bakers and entrepreneurs.
Jones All Day Bistro & Bakery is open from 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. daily and is located in Serendra Piazza, Bonifacio High Street, Bonifacio Global City in Taguig. Visit @JonesAllDayPH on Facebook and Instagram for more information.
