Grind Bistro
G/F Net Park Building, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig

My amigas texted me last Sunday afternoon to ask me to have a last minute dinner with them at BGC. Since I was home, I immediately said yes. They also asked me to look for a restaurant within our budget and that is picture-perfect. I had a lot in mind, until I came across Grind and I was so sure that this was it.
I was supposed to use Booky to reserve our table since they offer a discount for this restaurant, but I still had a reservation at a different restaurant for the following night. Apparently that's not allowed.
I arrived at around 5:20pm and fell in love with their interiors. It's exactly how the photos on the reviews I've read looked. I approached a server and asked for a menu for me to browse while waiting for my friends. I informed my company that the prices are beyond our budget, but we still proceeded.

I continued waiting for my friends inside the restaurant. I began admiring the beautiful furnitures: the black and white tables and chairs of different designs and colors, but still so elegantly matched the whole theme of the restaurant.
I then received a call from my friends telling me to start ordering since they were already near the area. So, I called a server and asked her on what their recommended dishes are and she elaborated all of them to me, per category. She mentioned a lot! And since I wanted us to have the best time, I chose only from their best sellers. I ordered the Grind burger, the nutty black chicken and the truffled penne carbonara.
Nutty Black Chicken P595

Chicken breasts with squid ink breading and sweet chili sauce. This is a unique take on chicken. The flavors felt so alive in my mouth. All of the elements combined was something really scrumptious.

Grind Burger P395

We had our patty cooked medium well. This was also good. It's not the best burger I've tried, but definitely not your usual burger either. The patty was juicy and tender. A few sections of the burger, and the potato chips served on the side, tasted a bit salty.

Truffle Penne Carbonara P495

Creamy carbonara served with two crispy bacon strips. It was good. It has the right to be called a "carbonara", but that's it.

Service was impressive.
Prices are a little high. It's higher than your normal budget when eating out but not really too extreme( unless you order their NY steak). It's something you can spend on every once in awhile.
I will surely be back to try their other dishes, and perhaps their milkshakes.

My score:
Pricing – 3/5
Service – 4/5
 Ambiance – 4/5  

     Taste – 4/5
