At my very first Eat’s A Date event, I was invited to dine at Aracama Filipino Cuisine at the Fort area. I did not do any research on this restaurant until now that I am writing about it and I quote..
Celebrities (in Manila) are said to have a new favorite hangout in town, and it’s owned by the group of Junior Master Chef judge Fernando Aracama, TV host-eventologist Tim Yap, and their business partners.
No, it’s not a new “it” club like those they successfully put up all over Manila and on Boracay Island in recent years.
This one is a restaurant called Aracama Filipino Cuisine, located at The Fort in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig, right where the old Embassy and Encore clubs used to be.
Compared to their previous businesses, this one is clearly quieter, more relaxed, perhaps even more substantial in menu.
FILIPINO FOOD IS THE STAR. It’s been a longtime dream of Chef Fern to see Filipino food at par with international fares, like French or Japanese cuisine.
I must say that all the food that were served were cooked to perfection. The pork meat was soft, their chicken blends well with it’s sauce and everything blended well in my mouth. But my favorites have to be their sea bass — tasted fresh and milk-y, their KKK rice is heaven on earth, and their bunuelos with caramelized gooey dulce de leche is an added bonus!
Thank you to our guide for the night, Khaezel, to Eat’s A Date organizer and to Aracama Filipino Cuisine. You are a Pinoy Pride!
