Bench Cafe Afternoon

Bench Cafe Afternoon

What began as a humble shop selling men’s t-shirt for more than 30 years. BENCH since expanded this fashion empire to women and kids. Because of endorsements from celebrities, television and giant billboards it greatly became a huge fashion brand that was proudly made in the Philippines.

Modern interiors with some classic wooden tables.

Early this year they’ve added a new umbrella in their company. An extension of their venture and a first for the company. BENCH Café is another chapter for Bench as they enter a new industry - restaurant business.

Chef Miguel Carlos explaining each dish.
Serving a more spiffier “turo-turo” style restaurant. They offer Filipino favorites on their menu some with traditional recipes while adding a little twist to other dishes but still staying true to the Filipino palate. 

We got to try some of their dishes:

Crispy Pata (Php 620)
This crispy fried pork was prepared for 6 hours to give its golden brown exterior and it's tender meat inside. I prefer the meat and juicy it was.

Dancing Fish in Escabeche (Php 350)

This butterflied fried fish comes in three sauces: Escabeche, Bench Salsa and Serwelas. They've placed this fried fish on a bed of sweet and sour sauce. You have to take a bite of the fish with its sauce.

Singing na Beef Tadyang sa Santol (Php 370)

Sinigang sa Santol comes in three variants: Pork Belly (Php 320), Beef Tadyang (Php 370) and Sugpo (Php 395). Perfectly balance sour and tangy taste for its sinigang soup. Enjoyed every sip of this appetizing dish.

Pinakbet Rice (Solo - Php 59, Sharing - Php 139)
They made a Filipino favorite dish into a flavored rice. Using pinakbet ingredients like beans, eggplant and okra with it's flavors too. They turned a typically boring rice into a meal on it's own.

Banana Cue with Tsoknut Sauce (Php 55)
Banana Cue is a typical Filipino street food dessert and they stayed true with traditional manner of preparing it. One of the things that stood out was its sauce which was made with Chocnut.

Don't forget to also try their drinks like Gulaman great for that warm afternoon and their Halo Halo too. Which I heard was another good try on their dessert menu. BENCH Cafe is located on the second floor of BENCH store in Bonifacio High Street.
