Providore combines Good food and Music



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!

Baker & Cook: Continental Breakfast at its Finest


It was my first time to go to Baker & Cook and I was amazed that they offer a really good  continental breakfast to get me on my day.

They had a big space which  they share with Plank Sourdough Pizza.

If you like breakfast that has eggs, cheese, meat, croissants, pastries, pancakes, fruit juice, good coffee, and a variety of bread  and rolls options like I do, then Baker and Cook is the place to go.








French Toast with Toasted Pecan (P 290) is perfect in a candy box or on the dessert table! The gourmet twist on this French Toast reminds me of  salted caramel and pecans sundaes!  Simply delightful!


French Toast with Tropical Fruit (P 290) is straight up simple and sweet but really delicious and healthy.  What more can I ask for?




I also loaded up on their  gourmet pancakes!  Their  Banana- Pecan Pancakes are dense and moist. Two hearty pancakes are topped with fresh banana slices and glazed pecans, are simply irresistible!

Mango Pancakes (P 290) are superlove as I mixed it in the mango sauce and vanilla whipped cream! Baker and Cook serves perfect, golden pancakes with whipped cream and sliced ripe mangoes,




The Eggs Benedict were tops for me!  My breakfast experience was made extra-special when they served  these up! The Salmon Benedict had spinach and thinly-sliced salmon over  buttered English muffins.  I love it!

And the Pancetta Benedict (with Italian bacon) definitely hit the spot! Poached eggs,over English muffins topped with Italian-style bacon was savory!  These  Eggs Benedict are a pleasure to dig into! Its oozing with golden yolks are marvelous!


Juice lovers will love  the Very Berry Smoothie, Raspberry Sage Smoothie, and Vitamin Burst Smoothie.   I had Raspberry Sage Smoothie and it's creamy one with subtle sweetness to give a great extra boost needed for the day!

Caramel Macchiato and Cafe Latte is a must try for coffee drinkers.




Baker and Cook open early for breakfast.. Do indulge and let it take you on dreamy continental breakfast.
