Providore at SM Aura is Raintree Restaurant'slatest addition to its line of iconic restaurants. Raintree Restaurant is the same group behind Izakaya Sensu, Chotto Matte. Chelsea, Simple Lang, Kabila, and Stella. And just like the other affiliates, this casual dining restaurant was designed to impress with more choices in dining.
It is a one-stop shop for people craving for classic Filipino dishes, meryenda, coffee, artisanal cakes and pastries. They have baked and local artisan products displayed on one side.
Providore Backyard had recently been launched to provide guest with an alfresco dining area for brunch, lunch out with friends or afternoon snacks. By late afternoon, Providore's newest place morphs into an amber-lit bar and bistro serving wine and beers. It is a spot where you can always expect good live music experience!
Providore Backyard's intimate ambiance is conducive for capping the night! And I got to experience this new kind of chill along with the other guest when it opened.
Nothing helps a friendly crowd to relax and enjoy each other like a classic cocktail. They mix up some recreational beverages to help you unwind from a long day at the office, and enjoy the company.
Our tastebuds were tickled with drink cocktails such as White Sangria (P 275), Mojito Backyard (P 195), Margarita (P 195) and Weng-Weng (P 225) while listening to chill-out tunes from its acoustic performer. The cool evening breeze on the outdoor deck was so perfect for chilling out as we sip drinks and converse in low tongues.
Their bar chows were straight up. We enjoy the Steel Plate Nachos (P 395), which was a perfect booze companion.
The city’s best bar food is at the Providore Backyard! With a night of drinking comes my insatiable craving for all things hearty and fried that Providore Backyard provided well.
Their Zuccini Fries was a great idea! It was generously topped with grated Pecorino (hard Italian cheeses made from sheep's milk) and the dip complemented the fries.
Cold Smoked Salmon (P 350) are potato chips served with a dip made of dill lemon cream cheese and artichokes. The smoky blend of salmon and cream cheese swirled together gives it a nice tang!
Hot Garlic Butter Potato Chips (P 175) were with extra-crisp and spicy.
We chowed down on their classic(P 230) and chili dogs (P 295) served with French fries.
Beer Battered Seafood Platter was my favorite! It is popular as it gives spiced, handful layer of fried seafood. Fish, squid rings, prawns and crabs were fried to a golden brown until they’re crunchy on the outside.
I'm impressed with Providore Backyard's service and food choices. This bar knows all too well what buzzed imbibers are looking for, so grab a stool and eat up at Providore Backyard!
