The Grid's Holiday Menu Will Make You Want To Head Over To Rockwell ASAP
Bring your friends so you can try them all!
The Christmas season is the time for slowing down, catching up with friends and family, over a bounty of delicious festive food. This holiday, The Grid at the Powerplant Mall has released an exciting holiday menu that includes appetizers, main course, refreshments, and desserts.
1 Bucky's Meatloaf with roasted mushrooms, mashed potato, and gravy (P420)
This tender and flavorful meatloaf is made from a blend of ground beef and pork-filled with roasted Kitayama bone marrow, served alongside thick and creamy garlic roasted mashed potatoes and roasted mixed vegetables and shiitake mushrooms.
2 Tsuke-Men's Quezo De Bola Tsukemen (P420)
If you're a ramen lover, the tsukemen is a type of ramen where you dip the thick noodles into a separate bowl of broth. For the Quezo De Bola Tsukemen, the noodles may be dipped in a thick and flavorful pork bone broth and in the creamy queso de bola sauce for a bit of saltiness. Tip: you should alternate between adding and omitting the queso de bola sauce.
3 Le Chon's Bibingka (P190), Puto Bumbong (P120), and Christmas Porchetta Ham (P1,350)
Is it really Christmas without bibingka and puto bumbong? Le Chon's Bibingka is moist and flavorful because it's topped with three kinds of cheeses, salted egg, and shredded coconut, while the equally-delicious Puto Bumbong is made with the purple rice cake slathered in butter, coco jam, shredded coconut, and muscovado sugar.
But what Le Chon is known for is their juicy pork dishes. To celebrate the holidays, you should try the Christmas Porchetta Ham. It's a boneless pork roast glazed with brown sugar and then topped with pineapples and cherries.
4 Beefier's Ham Burger (P390)
Not a lot of burgers have that wow factor, but Beefier's certainly does. Sandwiched between sweet brioche bun are a juicy smoked Christmas ham and pineapple marmalade. Everything about this burger is soft, tender, and tasty.
5 Gochu-gang's Pork Hamgyupsal (P430)
For fans of Korean barbecue, the Pork Hamgyupsal is made with sweet and fruity pork belly that is then grilled and caramelized for that signature holiday taste. It is then topped with fermented pineapple kimchi for that sweet and spicy kick.
6 Babu's Simple Fried Egg (P235)
Despite the "simple" description of this dish, it's actually an elaborate dish. It's made with flash-fried eggs until the fluffy egg whites are crisp, but the yolk remains liquid and velvety. The flavor of this dish comes from the toppings which are pork floss, chicken skin, oyster sauce, scallions, and chili. Of course, this is best paired with rice.
7 La Chinesca's Enchilada Verde (P250)
These enchiladas are perfect if you're looking for a light appetizer to start your feast with. Each plate comes with two enchiladas that are filled with chicken, salsa verde, salsa fresca, cheese, lettuce, red onion, and cilantro.
For the refreshments, there's the Flowerboy's Christmas Spice Milk Tea (P140), a classic Thai iced tea with cinnamon and almond. You may also choose from EDSA BDG's festive drinks, like the Gingerbread Latte (P650/carafe; P200/glass), a warm espresso-based drink with frothy steamed milk and a special gingerbread syrup; the Peppermint Hot Chocolate (P650/carafe; P200/glass) that's made with EDSA BDG's own blend of peppermint hot chocolate; and the Eggnog (P950/carafe; P300/glass) is a spiked eggnog made with a blend of bourbon, rum, sweet vermouth, milk, eggs, and syrup.
As with any meal, it is best ended on a sweet note. For dessert, there's Workshop's Tropical Holiday Entremet (P1,400), a French dessert made with layers of mango and strawberry compote, coconut mousse, feuilletine, and coconut dacquoise.
There's gelato from Risa Chocolates, too. There's the Single Origin Dark Chocolate Gelato (P170) that are made with 100% South Cotabato chocolate; Salted Butter White Choco Gelato (P160), made with just the right amount of salt and butter to bring out the flavors of the white chocolate; White Choco Strawberry Straciatella Gelato (Php 160), made with fresh strawberries and white chocolate. Risa Chocolates also have truffles and pralines (P50 each) that are available in Classic Chocolate, Salted Caramel, Cookie Dough, Earl Grey Tea, Quezo de Bola, Macallan Whiskey 60.
The Grid's Christmas menu will be available until December 31, 2019 only.
