My best friend Arianne and I agreed to have a nice dinner as a treat for all our hard work. We were thinking of a place where it’s quiet, with good ambiance, and of course a top notch cuisine. With my long search through coupon buying sites (hey don’t we all wanna save a buck?) I found a 40% discount to dine at Vyne at Deal Grocer.
The deal is basically P600 for P1000 worth of food and drinks at Vyne. Knowing our appetite we opted to purchase 2 coupons worth P2000.
Above is the wall art where we wait to get seated. It’s such a snazzy place to chill. Gives that fun and warm ambiance that we all love.
Across that intricate wall art, above is the main interior of the restaurant. I dare say, we picked the right place. It’s very classy to say the least. Background music plays light covers of top billboard charts – think The Great Gatsby Soundtrack.
We ordered the Truffle Fries as our appetizer. This bowl of fries might be one of the few highlights of 2014. These are absolutely delicious. I can’t believe you can make a simple snack be this “appetizing”. This incredible starter consists of French fries, Truffle Oil, Smoked Pimenton, Parmesan Cheese and Herbs. I was seriously trying to maintain my composure with each bite. Take my word for it.
Shrimp Plate: P420
The Shrimp Plate (Shrimp ala Plancha, Shrimp, Croquettas Seaweed Powder, Togarashi, Soy and Chives). To be honest I have no idea what the description says, all I know is that it’s Shrimp with some Croquettas. Honestly I find this appetizer quite pricey for it’s serving size. But then again, like the Truffle Fries this dish is too damn delicious. It’s so good that I forgot how expensive it was. Each bite (no matter how few) really explodes with flavor.
Salmon Dish: P450
Vyne Rice: P75
For the main course we ordered The Salmon dish – Seared Salmon, Pea Puree, Braised Chared Leek, Asparagus and Bacon in Jamon Serrano Broth. At first glance it may look small, I even thought I would need two orders just to fill myself up. But I promise you, partner this with their special Vyne Brown Rice and you will be stuffed. I’ve tried multiple Salmon Dishes and I dare say this one will be at the top. The Pea Puree really hit the spot. It has a slight salty punch to it but the vegetables and broth added balances it all out.
Vyne is located at 8th Floor, W Global Center, 9th Avenue Corner 30th St., Bonifacio Global City (right beside Hyve Club, same building as IHOP).
