Bluesmith Coffee & Kitchen in Greenbelt 3, Makati

Bluesmith Coffee & Kitchen in Greenbelt 3, Makati

When my family found itself lost among the sea of choices in Greenbelt, my mom suggested to select from the Zomato Gold restaurants instead. I took her advice so I scanned upon the app, and eventually stumbled upon Bluesmith, Motorino and Figaro. Since we already tried the latter two, we decided to go for Bluesmith.

Bluesmith Coffee and Ktichen in Greenbelt, Makati

Before we eventually enter and settle down, my mom confirmed if they honor multiple Zomato Gold users, and thankfully they do (although our server somehow forgot, and told us that we "forfeited" the promo by not notifying them upon order). We argued as calm as possible, and they respected the claim.

If you are planning to get a Zomato Gold, feel free to use this code "ANOTSP" to get 20% off the membership.

Interior of Bluesmith Coffee & Kitchen, Makati

A "perky" garden feel
Anyway, let's just check out the ambiance first, which I believe has this perky garden feel. The lights were lightly dimmed which gives the place a cozy "warmth" yet the modern elements somehow give it an exuberant energy. I found this really intriguing since "perky" and "cozy" is an odd combination of adjective.

By the way, I suggest you look for the cushioned seats. It will surely give you a more comfortable experience (like we did).

For the night, we had one orders each (though we shared among us).

Salted Egg Chips of Bluesmith Coffee

My brother ordered some Salted Egg Chips (P260), which I found a little bit of a lackluster given the price and its "ordinary" taste. Feel free to skip this appetizer.

Longganisa Ilocandia Breakfast Platter in Bluesmith Kitchen

We also had a Longganisa Ilocandia Breakfast Platter (P290) which featured the immense salty yet "malinamnam" taste of the longganisa. It may however seem pricey.

Pesto Pasta with Country Fried Steak - delicious and recommended!

The pasta dishes we had were the saving grace of Bluesmith. Though considerably not budget-friendly, the quality and taste justified the price. The Pesto Pasta with Country Fried Steak (P360) had a potent basil essence that clung onto the noodles. Every twirl was heavy on flavor. I mixed that up with the "fried steak", and things became more mouthful of an experience. 

Creamy Pasta Tartufo of Bluesmith Coffee and Kitchen

The Creamy Pasta Tartufo (P360) was also heavenly creamy, with moderate truffle taste. Though delicious, it may not be as sulit as the peso. Still, I loved the fullness of the taste.

Kesong Puti & Jamon Serrano Plancha Ciabata of Bluesmith

The Kesong Puti & Jamon Serrano Plancha Ciabata (P340) was a downer, it came literally flat with no visual zest. I needed to do the plating myself so that it would look good on photo. Yet, contrary to its appearance, the ciabata was really delicious! It had rich taste coming from the kesong puti and blended well with the hamon. That price however is something that might hold me back to try it again.

Tenderloin Beef Salpicao of Bluesmith Coffee & Kitchen

The Tenderloin Beef Salpicao (P420) was another lackluster. It was no way near tender which really derailed the dish. It could have been awesome given its savory taste, but it was really the texture that dragged it down.

Honey Truffle Wings of Bluesmith Coffee & Kitchen

The Honey Truffle Wings (P280) was interesting. It got this tickling sweetness from the honey mixed with the briny taste of the mushrooms embedded on the sauce. It was new for the palate, so I'm recommending this.

No. of visits for this particular restaurant/branch - 1 || Date of latest visit - January 18, 2019

Overall, the experience here in Bluesmith was "fairly okay". The pasta dishes were noteworthy but most dishes we had were pricey considering the serving size. Service may also be another thing that didn't help pull up the dining experience. It was slow and relatively hostile. Thankfully, the ambiance is something I really enjoyed. It could be their selling point. I don't fully recommend, but if you have a thing for cozy places, you'll like it here.
