It has been more than a year since Flatiron of the 1771 Group of Restaurants opened in Uptown Mall BGC. I always look forward going to this comfort food place. Executive Chef Vicky Rose Pacheco and her culinary team do a good job of whetting appetites with a well-curated menu of classic favorites given a twist. And they’ve done it again with new dishes to delight Flatiron diners.
Recommended as an appetizer, the Bravo Potato Skins (P260) are crisp-fried then topped with pulled beef brisket, cheese, sour cream, bacon bits, and spring onions.
Follow with the Flatiron Chef’s Salad (P350). It consists of shredded chicken breast, mixed greens, cheese, hard-boiled egg, avocado, and blue cheese dressing. This was a really delightful healthy fix.
The Seafood Angel hair Pasta (P370) was tasty and scrumptious with a capital S. I wouldn’t mind ordering a second serving (for takeaway, lol) even if friends would say am carbo-loading to the max 🙂
Pressed Pork Belly (P595) was creatively presented in the style of a tent. Anyway, this pork is healthy since it was baked, then basted with buffalo sauce and some drippings. It comes with side dishes of mashed potato, asparagus, and carrots.
The Sidebar Fried Chicken (P399) was just like what you would make at home … plain marinated with kalamansi or lemon and no breading. As a result, you really appreciate the chicken flavor and munch unto the bits till you reach the bone.
Flatiron’s beef salpicao in olive oil was a winner for me, so make sure to order this when you drop by. It just needed more browned garlic but it’s otherwise perfect and quite addicting.
The kids will definitely enjoy the differently-flavored milkshakes in Flatiron but adults like me are better off checking the cocktail list. And I just have to say I loved drinking this Red Wine Cooler (P270) in the middle of the afternoon.An enjoyable drink consisting of red wine, Sprite and ginger ale…..kampai!
