Apartment 1B, Gourmet Comfort Food, Leviste Makati

Last week, I was invited by my good friend and blogger, Kenny of LifeisKulayful.net for a brunch meeting at Apartment 1B, Leviste Makati. It wasn’t difficult to find, but if you’re commuting to the restaurant, then you know that you can’t get down from your choice of public mode of transportation just about anywhere. So I got down at PBCom Towers and walked towards the place at Leviste cor. Sedeño, Makati.

I saw my friends from outside who got there very early (Early means not late like me). I took my place at our table and grabbed the menu. Ross, Kenny and her brother, Kirk, already ordered, so I asked them what dishes they chose. After hearing their choices, I decided to go with the Egg Breakfast.

Apartment 1B’s collection of awards: well-recognized by food award-giving bodies

While waiting for our orders to be served, we had some time to let our senses take in the place. Apartment 1B in Leviste, Makati is a two-floor restaurant which serves gourmet food. I observed that the customers who walked in and out of the place were mostly foreigners, which says that their flavors and prices appeal more to foreigners than Filipinos.

The bar at Apartment 1B

There was a bar where customers would choose to dine if they were dining by themselves and would like to watch news from the TV, or simply prefer to eat at the bar.

Interiors at Apartment 1B

While the space seemed small, there was a lot of room to move in. The place was comfy and inviting, and it’s a good place to have a meeting in because the location is not a busy street, and is almost always quiet.

Kirk’s Order: Croque Madame (Php 660)

Croque Madam consists of wheat bread, farmer’s ham, gruyere cheese, then topped with egg. There’s salad on the side plus home fries. And by home fries, they were in huge diced chunks than the little potato strip slices we’ve gotten used to.

Kenny’s order: Eggs Benedict with Smoked Salmon and Spinach (Php 460)

Kenny ordered Eggs Benedict, which was served with wheat English muffins, lemon-caper hollandaise, and a serving of home fries. You can choose between Canadian ham and spinach (1 pc for Php 390, and 2 pcs for Php 460) or Smoked Salmon and Spinach (1 pc for Php 460, and 2 pcs for 790) sandwiched between two halves of English muffin.

Ross’s order: Apt 1B Big Breakfast (Php 580)

Ross had the Apartment 1B Big Breakfast, which included 2 eggs cooked any way you prefer (Ross chose sunny-side up), with smoked bacon, English bangers, Canadian ham, home fries, and toast plus a small pack of butter. Yum!

My brekkie: Egg Breakfast (Php 390)

I got the Egg Breakfast for myself. The serving included 2 eggs cooked any style (I chose scrambled), sausage, home fries and toast. For my beverage, I got a Cookies ‘n Cream Milkshake. I really liked the combination of sausages and scrambled eggs. I enjoyed the scrambled erggs better peppered and dipped in ketchup.

Cookies ‘n Cream Milkshake

I liked the smoothness of the Cookies ‘n Cream Milkshake, which was topped with a whole oreo. I was unable to consume it though, because of the amount of dessert that we ordered after breakfast.

Vanilla Milkshake

Kenny, on the other hand, got a creamy Vanilla Milkshake.

This Call system is probably more useful to customers who were seated on the second floor. We, who got a table on the first floor, did not have much need for it, because the servers were always so accessible and readily caters to our orders and requests.

Desserts!

Even after all that heavy brunching, the foodies still had room for four more plates of dessert! For sharing, of course.

Frozen Pie (Php 190)

Among all the desserts that we tried, this has got to be my favorite. The Frozen Pie, priced at Php190 is very much worth the price. It’s Vanilla Ice Cream with oreo crust, topped with walnuts, chocolate and caramel sauce.

White Toblerone Cheesecake (Php 220)

The White Toblerone Cheesecake was new to me. It was definitely soft and creamy to take in, like most good cheesecakes are. Raspberry coulis adorned and added flavor to the cake.

Flourless Chocolate Cake (Php 190) with Vanilla Ice Cream (Php 220)

Initially, I ordered Flourless Chocolate Cake without the Ice cream, but Kirk and Kenny advised me that it is better with Ice cream. So much for trying to stay in diet. When the order came, they were right. The cake would have seriously been a sad thing without the scoop of vanilla ice cream topping the slice. Again, raspberry coulis decorated the plate.

Low Sugar Gateau De Crepe (Php 210)

I would have ordered this, but Ross beat me to it. But by the time I got to take a bite of the Low Sugar Gateau de Crepe, priced at Php 210, I was already in hyperglycemia mode. It tasted too sweet for me, and at the same time too sour maybe because of the fruit, though I really appreciate the effort put into making this crepe, layer by thin layer.

Desserts at Apartment 1B

I loved the food at Apartment 1B. It was just too bad that we were limited to ordering Breakfast sets only during the time we were there. There were no soups available in the morning, too. While the price is a little more than what you’d spend for the usual breakfast, I have to say that you must treat yourself from time to time with breakfast like these. It’s worth it.

I had an amazing brunch at Apartment 1B. By now, I’m sure you’re dying to try out their breakfast meals too. My friends on Facebook cannot wait to kill me for making them crave for all these breakfast. Hope you get to have your fill of Apartment 1B’s breakfast!-HANA
