Mews – Where Culinary Meets Art

Today, I had a chance to dine in at Mews, a chic, art-driven lifestyle restaurant at Salcedo Village, Makati City. Chef Demar Regresado, the owner and chef of Mews, personally cooked three dishes for me during my visit.

Here are some of the mouth-watering dishes I tried during my visit:

Grilled Caesar Salad

Grilled Caesar Salad was my appetizer during my visit. It consists of fresh greens (organic lettuce), alfalfa, anchovies, Parmesan cheese and crunchy sides. This is perfect for salty savvy individuals. It was also served with crispy perfectly cooked eggs. It was so yummy! My verdict? A HIT for me.

Chef Chicken Breast

If there was one dish that stuck in my mind (and tummy) during my visit, it was Chef Chicken Breast. The presentation was superb! The dish consists of mashed potatoes with special sauce along with the chicken on top of it. The main dish was complemented with carrots and string beans on the side. The chicken was juicy and perfectly cooked. My verdict? An ACE for me!

Brazo Cheesecake

I ended my gastronomic experience with a heavenly slice of Brazo Cheesecake. It was chilled and dusted with cocoa powder. It was not too sweet and not too heavy. Just perfect with your afternoon tea or cup of Joe. I’ll give this a HIT.

Post my meal, I had the privilege and honor to chat with him. Mews is primarily a British term which means to eat healthier. The advocacy of the restaurant is to serve fresh and organic food straight to one’s table. The restaurant was built because of his passion to give Filipinos a taste of European fusion cuisines using local ingredients. Take note that all of their food comes from scratch. No extenders and preservatives involved.

From July to September 2018, they have the “Gin O’Clock” during Tuesdays, 9-12 mn. You can create and mix your own Gin & Tonic including dried herbs, fruits and spices for Php 899+ only. Apart from that, they have a daily promo happening from 4PM-9PM wherein you can get four (4) bottles of Peroni and a serving of panizza for only Php 799+. Great deals!

  1. What a great post! First of all, I had no idea that Mews is a British term that means “to eat healthier.” That’s so cool! Also, your meal looked incredible. Now I’m hungry…:) Thanks for a fun read!

  2. The dishes seem perfect! I’d like to try to prepare that Caesar salad, never heard of this salad being grilled. It must be delicious.

  3. Looks delicious! And what a wonderful atmosphere, too. 🙂

    I will admit though when I saw the grilled caesar salad all I can think of is the Gordan Ramsay Kitchen Nightmares episode where he can’t believe they are serving grilled salad… LOL. This version is much better looking though then what they served him on the show!

  4. That cheesecake looks amazing, but then again I am a dessert girl! The presentation on these dishes is so eye-appealing. Almost too nice to eat!

  5. This looks like a fantastic place to visit. The food looks really well presented indeed. It seems like you had a lovely time.

  6. I love Caesars Salad, more anchovies, the better! This one from Mews is so mouth watering! The Brazo cheesecake looks heavenly. I hope to visit this place soon.

  8. I loved the name of the restaurant. The decor is good and the food looks delicious. Liked the spread.

  9. I have never seen a ceasar salad look like that before. Heck, none of my food has ever looked like that before! It’s like art on a plate. How nice that you got to experience this!

  10. This Mews really looks like a chic, art-driven lifestyle restaurant after the impressions from your article. I really like the equipment of the restaurant, and the food served also looks top notch! Thanks for this presentation!
