If you are looking for a restaurant with breathtaking views of the Manila Bay, then Brasserie on 3 at the newly-opened Conrad Hotel the best place to go. The entire structure of the new luxury hotel is shaped like a cruise ship! And it boasts of modern amenities that would suit a leisure or business meet up.
On your way up to the restaurant, you will find a lot of masterpieces showcasing the works of both local and foreign artists.
This side of Mall of Asia is still free of traffic and remains undiscovered by many since the hotel opened June 15th this year.
The interior of the restaurant maximizes the view of the famed Manila Bay sunset with its tall glass panels and al fresco dining. Dining at the Conrad Hotel takes you on a cruise experience with the Manila Bay as its backdrop, plus instagram-worthy set-up.
With the Christmas coming up close, you'll find a well-curated sweet goodies and dessert section set up right at the entrance welcoming guests. It was fantastic!
Aside from the snowcapped gingerbreads, Christmas cookies, ice cream, chocolate truffles and cakes, we were treated to mouthwatering Stollens (traditional German bread for Christmas). They also had Churros fresh fruit slices and a "Halo-halo" section, which gives you a free hand to create your own mix.
I find their Hors d'oeuvre and Salad Section section quite up-scale and well-stocked. Herbs and other produce are grown at the hotel's veranda garden, they say. To me, it is the best Salad Bar! There were cheese and cold cut selections, dried fruits, nuts, and paper thin servings of ham sliced to perk up my appetite.
Brasserie on 3 buffet has a medium spread that includes antipasti, seafood, plus mains. Opposite the Salad Bar, you will find the Pasta and Bread Section, where you can make-your-own dish from your choice of pasta cuts, sauce and toppings. I had my fill of the Italian pizza and I like everything it has.
Next, I went straight to the Carving Section which had turkey, baby back ribs and beef in full slabs on display. I tried all and found the meat quite dry.
I was surprised that they also had Sinigang station that provides piping hot bowls of pork, salmon, and shrimp sinigang. They were also offering another Filipino comfort food--Bulalo.
Their Fresh Seafood Section has prawns, clams, salmon and mussels to offer at the time we dined in. Chefs are standing by to cook your seafood choices the way you like it.
Next to it lies the Japanese Sushi Station which is limited to Sushi and Sashimi.
For the main dishes, they had, Pineapple Chicken, Chicken Inasal, Beef Stroganoff and Vegetable Lasagna.
Brasserie on 3 has the Best Salad and Dessert Bar in this side of town for unforgettable celebrations. Do visit and see why it was built to impress,
