Eating is best when you share stories at the table. That’s what Sobremesa, a South American restaurant in Sapphire Bloc aims to promote at this age when technology changed the food culture.
Taken from its Spanish meaning, Sobremesa refers to the time spent together with people you share a meal with. Guests of Sobremesa are requested to surrender their phones before eating in exchange of desert. The phones will be locked on a cage and the key will be surrendered to you.
Established in 2015 by Chef Banjo Tuason, Sobremesa is a business venture by The Menu Group that features exciting cuisines that cater to diverse markets. Chef Tuason told us that their menu is tagged as South American cuisine with a fusion of Asian flavors.
The taste makes you think of childhood memories where Chef Tuason takes his inspiration.
One outstanding appetizer we tried is the Quezo Fundido, which is best eaten while it’s hot and crispy with a dip of a special blend of cheese. The Bulalo Estofado is such a delight. It tastes very Filipino yet unique with the tenderness of its meat.
Other recommendations are the Australian Rib Eye Steak, meat galore of Chorizo Pamplona, Salchicon, Vela De Lomo and Chorizo De Bilbao. The Shrimp Salad is a galore for comfort, and the Mango Cheesecake is a winner of not tolerating your sweet tooth. But the Lecheron, a macaroon served as leche flan is a big surprise.
Sobremesa is located in Sapphire Bloc, Sapphire Road, Ortigas Center in Pasig City. For reservations and events you may contact them at 917-624-5470, 917-950-9489 or follow them at Facebook or Instagram tru @sobremesaph.
