Be so good they can’t ignore you. ~ Steve Martin
For several times now, I have been seeing Harlan and Holden Glass house each time I passed by Power plant mall. I always wonder who conceptualized it since this brand initially offers lifestyle clothing only, and to discover they decided to venture into the F&B territory, buoyed me up to try it.
And glancing at the interiors, I really find it enticing.
And so one Friday, before seeing a blocked screening of this highly-acclaimed movie, we decided to stop by.
I chose to blog about The Harlan Glasshouse, even if I do not have much food to show because we were really happy to have given it a try, the experience was truly gratifying, and for all the three facets when I decide as to where to dine: taste of food, ambience and service. =) It is a two thumbs up on all three.
The pasta was undeniably al dente, I felt just the rightest crunch and its’ flavorful sauce is exactly as how we hope it to be. Jen got excited with the parmigiano shavings topped to it adequately.
If there’s an eclair, I will definitely get an eclair. Theirs is a bigger one, not the usual eclair that’s coated with chocolate, we got the salted caramel variant, although they have one coated with chocolate too. There’s a unique level of texture in it and worked really very well for a dessert. It is also not too sweet.
I’m guilty I had to request for a simple syrup for my freshly squeezed orange juice even if it is an accomplished thirst quencher on its’ own. My friend liked her specialty coffee too.
My college prof told me their Lapu-lapu fillet is worth a try. And I’ve been reading a lot of good feedbacks on their steaks and the famous corned beef rice bowl. So I already know what to get next time. =) Plan to go there during the not so busy hours, this way, you get to choose the better spots. =)
They are located at Rockwell Center R1-GH, Hidalgo Drive, Makati City, Philippines.
