Red Restaurant in Makati City - Philippines
Red is the sophisticated yet cozy dinning area at the Makati Shangri-La Hotel Manila. It boasts of a French-inspired menu, with a touch of Asian influence, offering a wide offering of meats, seafood, vegetables, fruits, cocktails and wines. It certainly makes an impression on guests entering the restaurant for the first time, seeing all that white with splotches of red in the room. But this contributes to the overall modern and exciting feel of the place. Though the food is quite pricey, with a good meal starting at around 1,000 Php, the artistic and imaginative plating of the food combined with original combinations of ingredients make it a great eating experience.
For starters, hot and freshly baked bread and butter with herbs are served as soon as you are at your table. This sets the tone for what you can expect at Red, good service and good food. If you like soup, then you would enjoy their Sampler Soup made up of three mini soups namely, minestrone, seafood chowder, and lobster bisque. To tease your appetite, Red serves the Red Appetizer Three Ways, another combination of unique ingredients. This is made up of seared foie gras with caramelized mango, crab cake with mustard aioli, and lastly a salad with buffalo mozzarella and tomato. For the French-Asian influence, try their Red Style Kilawin Lapu-Lapu Carpaccio served with chili vinaigrette and coriander and their Red Lobster Roll with Asian Pear. A nice touch to the restaurant service is that after the appetizer, a palate cleanser is served to prepare you for the entre. For their entre, meat lovers would enjoy their juicy US Super Prime Rib cooked the way they like it, as well as their Dark Soy and Sesame Glazed Pork Ribs. Seafood lovers, on the other hand, would love the Red version of Chilean Seabass and the Deep-Fried Cod with Red Chili Sauce.
