Old Manila

Philippine Tatler Best Restaurants - - MODERN EUROPEAN / GRILL -


The re­cently ren­o­vated Old Manila breathes new life into a wor­thy favourite of the metro's din­ing scene. Listed as mod­ern Euro­pean cui­sine, the restau­rant’s art deco old world feel is com­ple­mented by the con­tem­po­rary pho­tog­ra­phy of Fran­cisco Guer­rero.


To start, the foie gras tor­chon is melt-in-the-mouth per­fec­tion, with the cherry re­duc­tion and salted caramel pro­vid­ing the per­fect bal­ance to the tor­chon’s para­dox­i­cally light yet but­tery rich­ness. The miso-glazed Chilean sea bass ar­rives im­pres­sively; a large cross sec­tion steak glis­ten­ing in golden miso. The famed Chilean fish’s large, firm, and moist flakes bal­ance well with the miso’s salty soy bean sweet­ness. The sig­na­ture Davao Cho­co­late, fea­tures a sin­gle ori­gin 77 per cent co­coa and would ben­e­fit from sim­pli­fi­ca­tion as the cho­co­late needs lit­tle ac­com­pa­ni­ment.
