Gourmet Comfort Food at Apartment 1B

Apartment 1B is one of the pioneers when it comes to the comfort food concept in the Philippines. It started in the year 2006 in Salcedo Village, Makati City and you can also find this restaurant at The Henry Hotel in Pasay and The Henry Resort in Laiya, Batangas

I worked in Makati before but I haven’t heard of nor tried this restaurant so it took me more than a decade to finally taste their gourmet comfort food. It just so happened that we had my Birthday Getaway at The Henry Resort Taramindu Laiya. We were in the resort for three days so I’m sharing the food that we tried during our stay. 

Prior to our trip, I already knew what food to order because the resort sent a PDF menu but when we got there, they have two menus pala, yung Filipino Menu and the Apt 1B menu that you can find online. 

Dinner at Apt 1B 

For our first meal, we ordered Crispy Pork Kare Kare PHP580, Apartment 1B Pork Sisig PHP360 and Rice PHP50/cup

Crispy Pork Kare-Kare Bagnet 
Pork belly, peanut sauce, bagoong, and seasonal vegetables 

Apartment 1B Pork Sisig 
Citrus, soy, onions, and chilies 

I remembered that I also ordered Crispy Pork Kare-Kare on our first night at Acuaverde Resort several months ago. Hindi naman obvious na gusto ko ng Kare-Kare. Hehehe! The Pork Sisig is so spicy for our taste, pawis na pawis si hubby kasi siya ang kumain nito. I tried it pero hindi ko kaya. Nakalimutan ko ipatanggal yung chili kasi. Toink. 

Breakfast at Apt 1B 

Our room package includes breakfast, you can choose American or Filipino Breakfast. I chose American breakfast while my husband and son chose Filipino breakfast. My initial plan is to order American Breakfast on our first breakfast then Filipino on our second breakfast para lahat matry namin, pero mas gusto nila Filipino breakfast so ako lang nag-American. 

American Breakfast: 2 eggs, home fries, bacon, bread, and salad plus orange juice 

Filipino Breakfast: 2 eggs, garlic rice, homemade tapa, bread, and salad plus coffee 
2 eggs, garlic rice, and homemade chorizo plus, bread, and salad plus pineapple juice 

If you choose a room without breakfast, the breakfast meal rate ranges from PHP320 to PHP400 without drinks. So may konti ka lang na masesave kung room + breakfast na yung ibook mo. 

Lunch at Apt 1B 

For lunch, we ordered Apartment 1B Bulalo PHP950, Vegetable of the Day PHP240 and Rice PHP50/cup. I think this is the most expensive bulalo that I ordered, good for three naman yung serving, Sana pala hindi na kami nag-order ng vegetable, hehehe! For vegetable of the day, it is a choice of pinakbet or chopsuey and I chose the latter. 

Apartment 1B Bulalo 
Batangas beef shanks, special broth, and seasonal vegetables 

Dinner at Apt 1B 

Our last night in the resort so we splurged a little bit, doon na kami nag-order sa mas mahal na menu. We ordered Grilled Pork Chops PHP740, Buffalo Wings PHP520, Rice PHP50/per cup, Soda in Can PHP90 and White Toblerone Cheesecake PHP290

Grilled Pork Chops with Garlic Mashed Potatoes and Homemade Apple Sauce 

Buffalo Wings with Crudite and Cheese Dressing 

White Toblerone Cheesecake 

Among the foods that we ordered, we liked the Buffalo Wings, nirequest namin na hindi spicy so parang soy chicken. We also enjoyed the White Toblerone Cheesecake, may toblerone talaga sa loob, bitin nga lang kami sa isang slice. Hehehe! No doubt that it is their signature dessert. 

Breakfast at Apt 1B 

Nainggit ako sa garlic rice ng mag-ama ko so for our second breakfast, I also chose Filipino breakfast, there are only 3 choices so we ordered all three; Homemade Tapa, Homemade Chorizo and Daing na Bangus.

Hindi ko lang natikman yung chorizo kasi 2 pieces lang yung serving and maliit pa. So far, happy naman kami sa brekfast meal, big serving so nakakabusog talaga. Natetempt nga ako na yung na rin for lunch and dinner namin since all-day breakfast naman so available kahit hindi breakfast time. Hehehe!
