The Pig & Palm

We all long for that one place where we can celebrate just about anything and of course a seemingly banquet of delicious possibilities. 

The Pig and Palm suits the description - an upscale eating place where high-class dining meets absence of noise. 

What's so special about this trendy new restaurant by Michelin Starred Chef Jason Atherton is its modern and sophisticated atmosphere reminiscent of fine dining. 

The original plan was to open a restaurant in Manila but they instead established a resto in Cebu which opened to the public last June 27, 2016. 

Since it was our first time, we asked the staff what food to order. It was an insanely decadent meal from the cocktail drinks down to desserts. 

For the snacks and small bites, she recommended Chicken Karaage which is a different but delicious take on the Japanese equivalent. It was tender and flavorful. The meat was absolutely juicy and there was a hint of crispiness you can almost hear us crunching. 

In Big Plates to share, we ordered the Seafood rice with chorizo and lime. It was creamy and tasty like a fusion of appetizing flavors inherent to Spanish cuisines. 

And of course it’s a must entirely to sample one of their signature desserts which is the Baked 60% Chocolate Moelleux with sea salt and vanilla ice cream. It is comparable to a lava cake but more like a hot thick chocolate mixture in a bowl topped with ice cream. This takes 15 minutes to prepare so it would be best to order it ahead and then just inform the staff to serve it later. 

I must say I am not a cocktail type of person, but the Dill or No Dill and Rum DMC were indeed the bombs! Both were explosive drinks that tempted us to order for another round if only we were not headed to work.  

Not only was it a perfect place for dining but also the quality of their food was top notch!
