Flying high at The Flying Pan

TFP_wallHave you ever felt so high that you wanna throw your pans up in the sky? Okay, that was a little weird, and kinda crazy if one does that. But maybe, that’s the intention behind The Flying Pan. Maybe, it wants its customers to feel elated with their dishes, and feel good all together. Did my dining experience have that effect on me? Read on to find out.

I wasn’t able to take photos of the place but it was packed during lunch time. Since its quite near around Makati’s busy offices, it’s no wonder hungry employees would head here either for lunch meetings or quick catch up sessions. Their design gave me this Grecian feel which was refreshing in a way. My good friend and I were seated beside this honeycomb wall which I liked very much.

Their Butterfly Iced Tea didn’t fly well with me. I was expecting some sort of twist based from its name but it was just ordinary.

The ingredients in this pasta dish meshed well. It was very delicious. The smoked salmon didn’t overpower the dish as the spinach and capers were there to complement it. It also had this light cream sauce which tops this pasta on my list. And instead of the usual bread (which is the norm pair for pasta), this came with crunchy cracker like bread that was just okay.

My friend chose their Angus Beef Tapa which, according to her, could very well battle that of Mr. Jones’s. It was that good.

TFP_sauceI especially liked how they made her choose the vinegar by showing their selection to her.

TFP_dessert2The layers on this mudslide was GOOD. It doesn’t have this overpowering sweetness that stays on one’s throat. What I find interesting was the dark chocolate stick that just literally stands out.

TFP_facadeThere really is no set type of cuisine that this restaurant offers. It does have a good deal of well-loved Filipino dishes. In terms of price, a tad expensive but the taste is quite good. Service was good too ‘coz even though we were seated at a far away location, we were still attended to.

So, did I feel elated and good all over? Yeah, I guess you could say that. It wouldn’t be my everyday meal because of the price but I would go back to try their other dishes. Maybe I’ll try the tapa next time. 🙂
