Last Friday, the Cupcake and I finally got a chance to dine in The Glass Door in BGC—which is one of the newest restaurants in the vicinity. I first discovered them when we ate in Hanaichi (you can read my review about Hanaichi here) and I was instantly attracted to its dimly-lit yet very elegant and quiet-looking ambiance. I thought to myself that it seemed like a really nice date place.
Upon entering, I felt like I was in some sort of jazz club with all the waiters and waitresses dressed like they came out of a Great Gatsby set. It was filled with people—couples, groups of friends, and even whole families—so it turned out that my notion of it being quiet was wrong. There was even a singer who sang a few songs while we had dinner.
We ordered three dishes: Creamy Butternut Squash (Php 175), A’La Champignon Risotto with mushroom sauce (Php 320), and Salpicao with Garlic Rice (Php 400).
The Creamy Butternut Squash, which had bacon bits and croutons, was really thick. It was also a little too sweet for me, not unless you ate it with the bacon bits. I guess I’m really just biased and that the Butternut Squash Soup in Stockton Place really brainwashed me.
I quite liked the risotto. It was very filling, and the sauce was exactly how I expected it to be—light yet creamy.
My favorite was the Cupcake’s dish which was the Salpicao with Garlic Rice. The meat was incredibly tender—I practically wanted to steal the whole plate from him.
That evening we dined in The Glass Door in BGC, there was an ongoing promo—Buy 1, Take 1 on all of The Glass Door’s Signature Cocktail Drinks. The Cupcake and I ordered Darchi (Php 300), which consisted of vodka, coconut cream, and pineapple juice, and had one each.
