Mad For Garlic, BGC

YES. That is a Garlic Wreathe!!

Mad for garlic anyone? A good friend of mine had been shamelessly bugging me for weeks about this place. GARLIC. Tons of garlic everywhere.  Garlic in almost all of their dishes including their desserts. I would make up some corny joke about vampires but… It would seem inappropriate. The place although a bit dark has a rustic and refined feel to it. Tons of wine bottles and a lot of GARLIC designs and lamps. Hence the name “Mad for Garlic”, very appropriate name for the restaurant. Despite its western sounding name, I heard that its actually a Korean restaurant with a bit of a Italian infusion. Huh. Interesting? So here’s what we got.

Chicken Cheongyang Cream Pizza, Php 475

Free Garlic Bread

Holy Cow, Salpicao, Php 545

The “HOLY COW” Salpicao and the Cheongyang Pizza were my two favorite dishes. The pizza reminds me of this garlic pizza that I once tasted with a friend in Japan. It definitely was well made, SONY DSCthin crust and not too oily, Just how I like it.  My friend also recommended the “Dracula Killer” (Pretty Ironic, with all the Garlic in this place) I was also given free wine, but I wouldn’t recommend it. If you were to get wine, I would suggest you just order the good wine. Its definitely a good place to eat If you’re looking for something new to try at BGC. Flavors were definitely good, all dishes very well seasoned and not to oily. If I hop is full, then this is a far better place to eat in!
