Trying new food that will entice my taste buds is what moms should and must do for the kids. Exploring and experimenting new dishes that will definitely satisfy not only our cravings but also our kids'.

I remember when my ex boyfriend now my husband and I had graduated in college and started working, we promised to ourselves that we were going to explore or try different restaurant that we haven't visited yet. And we did it! Every payday we treat ourselves in different resto here in the Philippines and we end up as a Food Blogger - we love food.

And guess what we've visited a new resto named Akrotiri Modern Eurasian Cuisine is a must try that you'll definitely love all the foods that they offer.

The Filipino’s discerning palate has been cultivated by embracing local, foreign, and progressive cooking concepts. Constantly craving for fresh culinary adventures, passionate foodies are in for a delicious treat as a new restaurant presents an exciting gastronomic experience that has fused together diverse coastal food cultures from all over the world—Akrotiri Modern Eurasian Cuisine.

“We wanted to bring our knowledge to the Philippines and use all the incredible food that’s in the East and blended it with the West,” said Akrotiri General Manager, David Jones.

“Akrotini’s offerings reflect the Mediterranean classics, mainly Greek and other European influences but at the same time, we’ve localized the taste to create a new flavor. One can call it ‘fusion’, but we feel that ‘EurAsian’ highlights what we represent—an amalgamation of influences that have strong ties with the Philippine food culture.”

Akrotiri’s Menu is co-conceptualized by Chef Luca Maffei. An Italian chef with intricate taste to flavours and fusion, Chef Luca masterfully re-imagined Akrotiri’s food, bringing the blissful flavours of Asia and Euro-Greek cultures to our local cuisine.

A feast of specialty menu was offered as part of Akrotiri’s comprehensive food choices—a classic Greek heritage of Mediterranean triad themes that overlap with Malay, Oriental, and European influences. Guests also had their fill from a wide selection of wines, spirits, and beer, as well as carefully curated cocktails that collectively reflect Akrotiri’s distinct coastal blending ethos.

Akrotiri’s story was shared through an audio-visual presentation, but more so when its menu items were exhibited separately, plated attractively for every event-goer’s delight and indulgence.

Among the dishes that I have tasted, Grilled Salmon is the best for me. Love the taste especially partnered with rice is a perfect combination. The 24 hr pork belly is cannot resist especially the tenderness of the meat and the taste is really good. The Wagyu corned beef as well is a must try at Akrotiri.

Love their dessert, the Chocolate Garden Mosaiko, not too sweet, a perfect blend after eating all the main course, digging on this dessert will definitely a complete meal experience.
“Metro Manila is an emerging market for restaurants and we wanted to present something new, yet still familiar to the Filipino palate. Using local ingredients and principles plays a vital role in bringing to life our concept of showcasing global coastal food cultures through dishes that remain close to home,” said Akrotiri Head Chef, Ereyca Trinidad.

Weaving together the different flavors found on different coastal food cultures all over the world and presenting them as delicious gastronomic offerings makes Akrotiri a unique destination that delivers an exciting culinary experience that will surely indulge every type of Filipino diner.
