Black­bird

Philippine Tatler Best Restaurants - - EUROPEAN / MODERN SOUTHEAST ASIAN -

WHY GO

Black­bird is clas­sic Colin Mackay—vis­ually clean and co­he­sively art deco. The restau­rant was en­vi­sioned as a fine din­ing place for con­tem­po­rary Euro­pean and Asian cui­sine. The chef uses the sleek lines of his avi­a­tion-in­spired place as a step­ping stone for each dish.

TATLER TIPS

Even a sim­ple dish like grilled Iberico pork herb noo­dle salad, or the spring rolls, have lay­ers of flavour and tex­ture. The tem­pura, egg­plant, and prawn frit­ters is a per­fect in­tro­duc­tion to a meal. The Ker­ala fish curry with bas­mati rice gives the lamb ren­dang a run for its money ev­ery time. Its flavours trans­port you back to the streets along the Mal­abar Coast. There are many sump­tu­ous desserts but the sticky tof­fee pud­ding re­mains a favourite.
