Sinful Sweets and Savory Delights at URBN Bar and Kitchen
People can’t seem to get enough of URBN Bar and Kitchen these days—and for all the right reasons, too. Not only is it a good place with spacious interiors that encourage party-goers to dance the night away, but it is also turning into one of Manila’s most popular venues of choice for the dinner crowd.
Our main target for this visit was to sample their arsenal of bestselling desserts. First on the menu was the White Chocolate And Cookie Butter Love-Ah Cake (P270), which is, in all honesty, what heaven would taste like if it were made into a cake. Imagine biting into a soft, sweet white chocolate cake and having cookie butter flow like warm lava into your mouth, catching your tastebuds by complete surprise. This dessert is unique, delicious and simply the best thing ever.

Home Made Potato Chips with Aioli and Pesto DipThe Home Made Potato Chips with Aioli and Pesto Dip (P250) serve as a perfect in-between snack when in need of a break from the sweeter dishes. The chips are light and crisp, and the two delicious dips provide two different ways to enjoy your snack. The Lamb Hash (P320) is a highly addictive dish reminiscent of sisig, with bits and pieces of lamb among other fun things. I couldn’t help but take spoonful after spoonful of this as the sheer flavour of the meat alone made me want to go on eating. Finally, we had the Crumbed and Jamon Wrapped Mozzarella Sticks with Marinara Sauce (P350), basic cheesy goodness that any diner can appreciate.
Crumbed and Jamon Wrapped Mozzarella Sticks with Marinara SauceURBN is well on the way to establishing itself as a savvy, hip hangout for city folks looking for a good time. What I find truly commendable about them is that they put as much value on their food as they do on their entertainment. This goes to show that good food, regardless of the location and situation, is truly essential to complete the experience.
