Penthouse 8747: Drink and Dine in Decadence (Makati)

Facebooktwittergoogle_pluslinkedinmail

Definitely an excuse to dress up, Penthouse 8747 is reminiscent of a bygone era of decadence when parties were extravagant, people were indulgent and liquor was in excess: The Roaring Twenties. The Great Gatsby theme is conceptually fitting for a penthouse bar in one of Makati’s oldest buildings. Dating back to ~80 years ago, Lepanto Building was one of the first high rises in Makati City. Offering a great view of Makati City from the 22nd floor, Penthouse 8747 takes its name from its address: 8747 Paseo de Roxas Street.

I was invited to sample some of the best that Penhouse 8747 had to offer, and they certainly did not disappoint! We started off with some cocktails designed by Bar Manager Marnell Sarabia Masallo. Recently launched for Valentine’s Day, The Jellous Lover was an intriguing drink perfect for intimate celebrations. At the bottom of the champagne lies a gelatin made of rose wine with chunks of berries. It was good ’til the last drop!

We also got to try their bestseller Night in the Plaza (PHP 300). This seemingly innocent cocktail had a pretty good balance. The bitter bite of the vodka was successfully masked by the refreshingly sweet fresh watermelon juice. It’s a backstabber, but the good ones usually are. 😉

Come sunset, supper was served. The menu was mostly western, but Chef Michael Ginaro had just revamped or created new dishes for Penthouse 8747 to integrate some Asian elements. For starters, we had their Golden Crab Cakes (PHP 470), topped with alfalfa sprouts. It was pleasantly spicy with the pepper and paprika neatly tucked inside each roulade.

The Shrimp Pesto Pasta (PHP 370) has also been modified to include Moringa or Malunggay leaves to give off a different flavor apart from the basil. The rich, creamy sauce wasn’t nakakumay in the least bit.

A recent addition to the menu, the Seafood Caponata Flatbread is a medley of all the salty toppings that I love on my pizza! While you might cringe at the thought of anchovy, capers and olives combined, they are accompanied by some mild-tasting grilled zucchini and eggplant.

Another variation of flatbread we got to try was the Italian Sausage with Prosciutto (PHP 420) drizzled with sweet balsamic reduction, which provided a good contrast against the seasoned pork.

The Garlic Mushroom Chicken (PHP 380) was one of the best dishes! Chef Mike had tweaked the dish a bit, and the improvements really paid off. The tender, grilled chicken was covered in savory button mushroom and brown mushroom sauce with truffle oil and thyme. Accentuated by the pommery mustard and butter sauce, the mashed potato was upgraded from dull to delectable!
