Borough at The Podium

Borough is a restaurant that brings out American comfort food in a laid-back-artsy ambience at The Podium. Since I was getting something somewhere in Ortigas, I decided to drop by Borough for dinner. Sis and Ykaie were there too, of course.

Grilled Cheese Sandwich with Tomato Soup {P260/$5.90}

The grilled cheese sandwich has the right amount of crispness and softness and of course, the soup was creamy. I found it more delicious when I began dipping the sandwich into the soup before eating it. Later on, sis followed and dipped hers into the soup as well.

Cheese-Injected Portobello Pita Pocket {P270/$6.20}

What a great idea this is for vegetarians! No meat but absolutely delicious. It is served with crispy chips on the side too! Ykaie, known chips-lover, loved the chips.

It was very surprising to know that there’s a restaurant operating inside a mall which is open 24/7. There’s a small entrance at the side of The Podium that goes in the restaurant.

Something funny happened on our way to the restaurant. I didn’t notice that we passed by Cinnabon. Ykaie loves their Pecanbon so much. She said “mommy, buy me yock &yoll, yung may nuts {the one with nuts}” It took me a couple of minutes before I got what she was saying.  She couldn’t pronounce the letter “R” . She was asking me to buy her a “rock & roll with nuts” but what she really meant was “cinnamon roll with nuts”. I laughed when I realized it.

So we had a cinnamon roll to go and that’s what ykaie ate at Borough ….plus the chips.

Chocolate Chicken Wings {P280/$6.40}

Sis thought this was chocolate-dipped chicken wings. I think it would be really weird if it was. Well, it was chicken wings with cocoa powder, cinnamon and chili. The flavor really went well together. I liked it.

    She is so cute! It’s such a good idea to write down what they say and how they say it so you can remember when they get older! The chocolate wings sound interesting. It would be fun to experiment with these flavors.
