We discovered this place along -- you guessed it right -- 28th Street in BGC on a busy Friday night. We initially wanted to try Agave on 9th street but it was jam packed, and we didn't want any of the "mainstream" restaurants in the busiest part of Bonifacio High Street. In fact, we were looking for new places to try - those that we haven't tried yet or even heard of before. We were already on our way to the Fort Strip when we stumbled upon Crisp on 28th and the moment we saw it, we just felt like it'd be the perfect venue for our foodie adventure ;p
Ambiance - ★★★★☆
The only thing that saved this place from looking like your ordinary, cookie-cutter resto is the black & white design of the chairs. It adds a little bit of spunk to the place's style. My brother, who works in the hotel and restaurant industry, said that this is called an 'eclectic restaurant', whatever that is ;) What I know is that even though this place looks posh, it is not intimidating and it's where you can actually get comfortable in - a place you can always go back to.
The only thing we didn't like was the ventilation. Or maybe because we were seated under the split-type aircon that's why it was too warm during our time of visit? Or maybe because I usually act like an overexcited puppy when I talk to people? Hmm.
Sweet Potato Fries, P70 - ★★★★☆
Toast Box, P510 - ★☆☆☆☆
A palpable sense of disappointment washed over us when the staff finally served us the food. As in mega laki ang eyes ni Toto sa pagkagulat, "this is it?!" It's literally a toast box (syanga naman) with scrambled egg, scrambled egg, and scrambled egg inside. Oh, did I mention there's scrambled egg inside? We paid P510 for this?
Considering its size and price, it must taste heavenly, right? Unfortunately, no. It tasted like pizza and of course, egg! What a big letdown, really.
