Aracama Filipino CuisineAt 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.

AracamaThis fact added to the excitement that I’ve finally try this place which only started last June 2012.

AracamaI was impressed with the classy, spacious and the feeling that you’re home in a pinoy’s place with a fresh, home-cooked goodness waiting to be discovered.

AracamaBy the way they set up the place, it’s fit for families and friends to come together to enjoy and celebrate the Filipino cuisine, our cuisine.




AracamaThey have a bar and lounge area outside where friends can enjoy a cold beer after a long day at work or just because they love to hang out.

Malunggay Mozzarella Dip{ Malunggay Mozzarella Dip. Spinach and vitamin fortified creamy, cheesy brulee and crostinis for scooping. Php195 }

Fish Balls{ Fish Balls. Street food treat, made from scratch – cream dory fish served with three dips, double dipping is encouraged. Php175 }

Manok sa Tanglad{ Manok sa Tanglad. Lemongrass chicken BBQ with sweet-sour garlic dip and cucumber-cilantro ensalada. Php380 }

Binagoongan Baboy{ Binagoongan Baboy. Pork belly simmered in tomatoes, shrimp paste with green mango relish. Php375 }

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!
