Made an amazing discovery earlier this week: Mati’s Meat and Bread. Tucked in a strip behind Festival Supermall, this gem of a find is one place that’ll soon turn into one of my favorite haunts. Thank goodness I’m a Southie!
Every single food I tried was amazing. The interesting mix of flavors and textures brought new dimensions to otherwise familiar dishes.
Got off to a great start with this Creamy Spinach Dip:
I never liked bone marrow (pausing for collective gasp from y’all), but I loved this Truffled Bone Marrow appetizer:
Some of Mati’s Meat and Bread’s dishes are named after family members’s favorites. This one is Mama’s Buffalo Wings:
They also serve rice dishes:
Their salads are also very good:
Mati’s Meat and Bread’s pizzas are on the top of my list:
If you love pasta as much as I do, you have got to try Mati’s Meat and Bread’s Truffle Pasta:
This nummy seafood pasta is worth a try:
Not only is the food phenomenal, the place is also stunning.
As a seafood lover, I can confidently say Mati’s Meat and Bread knocked this oyster dish out of the park:
Mati’s Meat and Bread is named after Mati, the youngest member of the Santiago clan of Melo’s. From this famous family of restaurateurs comes Caron Santigo-Macasaet and her husband Paul. They wanted to bring something fresh to the Philippine dining scene as influenced by their travels around the world.
One refreshing idea that Caron and Paul cooked up is this intriguing balut dish cooked in aligue.
As we all know, Melo’s is synonymous with good quality steak and Mati’s Meat and Bread is fast becoming a close second.
You can cook your own steak at your table or have it cooked in the kitchen.
