LAST month, Whisk Asian Bistro Café hosted a grand launch for media and influencers to get a first-hand experience of what the food rave is all about.
Located at Alphaland Makati Place at the corner of Ayala Avenue and Malugay St., Whisk Asian Bistro Café is not your ordinary restaurant. While many mistake it for a bakeshop, it is really much more than that.
Whisk is an Asian Bistro Café serving a fusion of three highly favored cuisines – Chinese, Japanese and Filipino. Asian ingredients and techniques are infused into their dishes, a handful being family recipes
“whisked” up with a playful modern twist.
When asked on the inspiration for the interior of Whisk, head chef Barbie Tan explained, “I wanted a minimalist industrial design because that’s how I am. I want things simple and on point, simple but classy with the colors that I love (brown, white, black and gray). I want to give people the best gastronomic experience in the Metro with delicious food and nice chill ambience at an affordable price.”
Among Whisk’s best sellers are: Chicken Teriyaki Mac N’ Cheese, the first mac n’ cheese with an Asian twist that will surprise your taste buds and leave you wanting for more; Whisk’s Carbonara, in which Chef Barbie uses Chinese ham instead of the typical ham or bacon, plus shitake mushrooms; Whisk’s Five Spice Burger, otherwise known as Kikiam Burger, a 4-generation handed down recipe of Chinese kikiam roll made into a patty, layered with TLC and topped with crispy golden brown bean curd sheets in a brioche bun; Lechon Kawali in Pesto Sauce, twice cooked pork belly where Chef Barbie uses pesto sauce as dip instead of the usual liver sauce;
Taho Cupcake, taho in a cupcake served with fresh tofu cubes, tapioca pearls and arnibal (brown sugar syrup); Whisk’s Epic Hot Chocolate, made from scratch using 65% malagos dark chocolate and other Asian spices to make it epic; House Blend Iced Tea, made from freshly brewed black tea and fruit juices; Salmon and Soba Salad, fresh mixed greens, seared salmon chunks, and candied walnuts with their homemade sweet and spicy Asian dressing; and Whisk’s Spicy Wings, deeply fried golden brown wings tossed with sweet and spicy Sriracha sauce.
