Special Birthday Brunch from a Special Chef :)


I love Chef Pat’s Food πŸ™‚

It was my wife’s birthday last Saturday and I’ve been looking for a special place to eat. By special, I mean a cozy place that only a few people are eating, excellent food, and warm service. I’m glad I was not disappointed with our Sunday Brunch @ Chef Pat’s. I like discovering new places that people have not been into and this budding chef would someday be famous. This place is like Chef Laudico in Urdaneta where he opened his house for intimate dining with a special menu. Chef Pat is located in Northeast greenhills and just a perfect place for a Sunday Brunch — yummy πŸ™‚ Sometimes, Pat Choa would be invited to people’s house to cook at their own home (imagine that).

The 6 course menu was fantastic and delicious πŸ™‚ All of them a winner except for the soup which got mixed reviews:

Chicken and Saffon Soup. My dad loved this!

Pomelo and Chinese Pear Salad. This is soo delicious that we want to steal the recipe.

Sesame Crusted Lapu-Lapu with Mushroom Broth. Now this one is magical because the very thin slices of tuna flakes on top of the crust is moving and it was fun to watch like it was alive.

Beef Tenderloin with Crispy Beef Tongue and Risotto. Delicious and was gone in a few seconds.

Mandarin Orange Sorbet awith Kaffir Lime Jelly. The sorbet was homemade and you can really taste the mandarin orange.

Chocolate Hazel Nut Mousse. This is the yummy birthday cake. The crusts is worth the calories πŸ™‚

Chef Pat — Thanks for the wonderful Sunday Brunch and for making my birthday surprise to Rache soo special. Although I would offer a few things for improvement to make it a truly mind-blowing experience because the food is already fantastic:

Overflowing signature drink. The drinks were just water and powdered ice tea. It would have been great if there was a signature drink like fresh mandarin orange that is overflowing! Or, maybe a wine would be a good compliment for these french dishes πŸ™‚

Focus on the tiny details of the dining experience. There should be interesting talk pieces in the dining area. There are a few but we don’t know what the story is, so maybe an intruiging piece of art or cloth, or dining ware would be appropriate. One thing missing is excellent music to complement the dining experience.

Here is our family photo and this was the best among the photoshoots that we made that morning:

  1. Is Pat still in Manila? How much did it cost per head? Just a ballpark figure will do if you can’t recall. Many thanks.
