Table Conversation: Sometimes They Do Read

The New Interiors of 1521
The Rediscovered Interiors of 1521

I’m not sure about this.

I heard from a fairly reliable source that the owners of 1521 Restaurant decided to upgrade their eatery partly because of the overt comments made in the blogsphere. It was not about the food, but about their uninspired restaurant interiors.

I admit. I was a bit more harsh than usual about the look of 1521. It was only because I loved their food so much that it paled in comparison to the rest of the dining experience. I’m happy to report that after an extensive renovation, 1521 is now open for business once again.

I’ll have the Brains, Please?

With a new look, new dishes on the menu and the same witty passion for Pinoy food, I have no doubt that you will be enjoying your next meal at 1521.

PS. Check out my interview with Hell Kitchen UK’s Chef Marco Pierre White.

Thanks to Erik Lacson for the more than decent photos.

    If I'm not mistaken, this inutak may be more of a rice dessert than brains as you mentioned in your caption. Weird name for a rice dessert I know but in Pateros, it's a dessert specialty eaten with ube ice cream & it's very good! Thanks for the info!

    Really, foodesign? :( I actually liked the idea that 1521 was serving brains for lunch. Most Manila restaurant would not dare put brains on a menu. Oh well. :)

    Thank you for the information.

    Place looks great! I'm now more curious to check it out, as it happens to be not too far from where I live. I've only heard great things about the food, can't wait to get a taste.

    Just for additional info, I found this flickr link/photo showing the inutak & ice cream combo of Pateros I mentioned earlier:

    I miss this dessert so much :)

    Realy? They serve the Pateros inutak? Come to Pateros and i can show you the original place where it is made. We eat it when hot with ice cream on top like apple pie ala mode.
