NiceThings at Mati’s Meat and Bread

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:

This serving is for sharing but I can so finish it all by myself.

I never liked bone marrow (pausing for collective gasp from y’all), but I loved this Truffled Bone Marrow appetizer:

This Truffled Bone Marrow was surprisingly delish!

Some of Mati’s Meat and Bread’s dishes are named after family members’s favorites. This one is Mama’s Buffalo Wings:

Sakto lang ang anghang #nomnomnom

They also serve rice dishes:

This beef salpicao was tender and flavorful.

Their salads are also very good:

Camille’s Spinach and Arugula Salad is refreshing.

You should also try Vince’s Chicken Arugula Salad.

Mati’s Meat and Bread’s pizzas are on the top of my list:

i’m totally with Bia on this choice of Bia’s Four Cheese Pizza. The Salpicao Pizza isn’t so bad either.

This Pepperoni Pizza is made more amazing by pesto and jalapeno. Yum!

I love seafood so Tali’s Gamberetti is an instant fave.

If you love pasta as much as I do, you have got to try Mati’s Meat and Bread’s Truffle Pasta:

Creamy yet light – perfect!

This nummy seafood pasta is worth a try:

This seafood pasta dish is oil-based.

Not only is the food phenomenal, the place is also stunning.

Natural light floods the dining area. Can you say instagram?

As a seafood lover, I can confidently say Mati’s Meat and Bread knocked this oyster dish out of the park:

Oysters. Cheese. Nuff said.

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.

Before digging into Balut Aligue, consult your doctor. Seriously.

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.

I like mine well done.
