Everyone’s been opening in Legaspi Village nowadays. From a quiet neighborhood home to a handful of coffee shops, it is now transforming into a mecca for both foodies and booze lovers alike.
Enter the new standout establishment along along Carlos Palanca—The Belle & Dragon by the same owners as 2nds. Upon stepping foot inside the restaurant, we are greeted by elaborately furnished interiors that evoke a vibe of class and elegance. We arrived at 1:30 in the afternoon, and it already seemed to have attracted an early drinking crowd for itself, as their beers on tap are irresistibly tempting—and their selection is a good one, we have to say.
And of course, we mustn’t forget the grub! Here’s what this new pub on the block has to offer aside from the brews.
L: Soba Salad (soba noodles, mixed greens, shrimp, mangoes), PHP 250 | R: The Wurst Threesome (grilled munchner weisswurst, black forest sausage, beef banger, sauerkraut, red cabbage, chips), PHP 570
Mac N Cheese Pie (cheddar, Leicester, maccheroni, lardons, bacon lattice), PHP 490
Double-Fried Kimchi Chicken and Waffle (chicken thigh, gojuchang glaze, potato waffle, arugula salad, poached egg, kimchi butter), PHP 480, available on weekends only
L: Pedro Craft Beer and Flat White Coffee from El Union | R: Cheesecake (Japanese-inspired cream cheesecake, chocolate soil), PHP 280
