The Hungry Hound Pub + Kitchen
Despite being an ace at commerce, rock ‘n’ roll, and maintaining a functional monarchy, the British have historically lagged behind their neighbors when it came to good eats. God saved British cuisine with the gastropub concept and we’re thankful it’s landed on our shores!
The Hungry Hound
The Hungry Hound is located in the ground floor of the swanky Globe Towers in the Fort. The place has a cool, stripped-down look that manages to be upscale and yet casual at the same time. It’s a place where spiffily dressed young execs can mingle with bearded hipsters and other interesting folk. Thanks to the great lighting and warm wood interiors, customers are assured that they will look good drinking and lounging on the paisley sofas or digging into their dinner on the cafeteria-style tables. Craft cocktail bar Niner Ichi Nana can be found next door, and the two establishments share menus, which is great if you find yourself craving for a cocktail to go with your Duck Fat Fries (P288).
Duck Fat FriesSpeaking of fries, since the Hound’s opening in mid-2013, the sinful pub bite has been making the rounds on social media, gracing someone’s Instagram at least once a night. Thankfully, the reality lives up to the hype. Contrary to its name, the fries don’t taste like duck, but tastes like how good ol’ French fries are supposed to—crunchy, tender, and salty. The cheese and herbs sprinkled on top add to that umami flavor that keeps you reaching back for more, to the detriment of your waistline.
