One Way Restaurant in Legazpi Village, Makati

A great friend of mine just celebrated her birthday in One Way Restaurant, and I had the honor of being there to celebrate. I know it does not sound appropriate blogging the food we had, but Meg herself encouraged me to cover the restaurant. Actually, all throughout dinner I was pretty timid to take photos, as I result I only got to take only a few snapshot. With this, I am just going to share with you those that I was able to take photos of. Hope you'll still find this helpful!

Before I head on to some of the dishes we had, let me just share this photo of us. These are my thesis mates for Economics, and we were just united once again!

By the way, the interior was surprisingly amazing! I wasn't expecting it to be as dashing as it is based on its outer appeal. Ha! I guess it is really true that we should not judge a book by its cover. The air of sophistication is present all throughout the place which then makes it a great place for something "solemn". Okay, let's now get to the food!

Pamplona || P580
Jamon serrano, Spanish spicy chorizo, arugula, cherry tomato and lemon dressing
Pamplona Pizza of One Way Restaurant

This pizza featured a fine level of simplicity matched with rightly blended flavors. However, for the kind of delight I experienced, I see this as somehow overpriced, but I guess we are really paying for the fantastic ambiance.

Red Pesto || P360
Sundried tomato, red pesto and Spanish sardines
Red Pesto of One Way Restaurant

This Red Pesto was really interesting with its subtle sweetness and sourness coming from the sundried tomatoes. Plus, the Spanish sardines definitely added to its distinct character. The serving size may also be good for 1 to 2 person/s only.

Aglio Olio || P370
Jamon Serrano and asparagus

This oil-based pasta was my least favorite among the three. Maybe that is because I found the taste considerably plain and too predictable. The only unique appeal of the dish was the flavor coming from the Jamon Serrano. The rest was meh.

Cream of Aligue || P370
Baby prawns, crab paste, cognac and cream

Among the three, this is what I liked the most. It is probably because of the interesting blend of flavors while still maintaining the harmony in them. The aligue (or crab paste) was light but noticeable, so it is really something I appreciated.

Alright, that's mostly about it because again I was not able to take photo of the other dishes. Still, I hope you'll find this helpful.

Overall, I was able to enjoy the classiness of the place as well as the sophisticated ambiance. It is definitely conducive to have some uncommon dishes. Plus, I believe that the place is a good candidate for your next dating place. The food may be a bit expensive, but the taste ranges from good to great. However, what adds to the dining experience is the attentiveness of the staff and of course the ambiance.
