Have you ever eaten at Mad for Garlic in BGC? It was so interesting since everything, from appetizer to dessert was made from or with garlic (yes, folks, even dessert!). The restaurant is located at W Global Center 30th Street corner 9th Avenue, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig.

Dracula Killer

Let me go through what we ate. Well, we started our meal by biting into garlic bread topped with cooked cloves of garlic dipped in olive oil with anchovies. This appetizer is called Dracula Killer (Php 195). The dish had 6 pieces of garlic bread.

If you don’t want to spend that much on appetizer, we suggest that you order just 4 pieces of Garlic Bread (Php 95) but don’t miss out on this. It is really delicious. The outer part of the bread is crispy while the inner part is really flavorful with the right amount of butter and with that yummy garlicky taste.

Old Ham and Sausage Pizza

We ordered the Old Ham and Sausage Pizza (Php 495). It was topped with sausage, ham and bacon. There was a lot of black pepper too which gave it that extra ‘sausage-y’ taste. I also loved the crust since it was a little sweet, which complemented the taste of the toppings.

Dancing Salsa Rice with Steak

We thought that we won’t get be full after just pizza and pasta, so we ordered something with rice. We ordered the Dancing Salsa Rice with Steak (P295). This dish was served on a hot plate and I found it a bit odd. It was basically wine-marinated Beef that was placed on top of garlic rice and bean sprouts. On top of the meat, a sunny side up fried egg was placed. This dish’s presentation was unique. The flavors were also unique.

Garlicpeno Pasta

Let me warn you! This pasta is really really spice. The Garlicpeno Pasta (Php 245) when eaten is just like eating pure chili. At first you’ll maybe not want to take another bite, but believe me, after the second or third forkful, you will find yourself digging into it over and over again. This dish is so addicting!

Garlic Sprinkle Gelato

For dessert, garlic was still the main flavor. We had the Garlic Sprinkle Gelato. It was basically Garlic ice cream with a garlic biscuit on the side. It was not too sweet. Although, as a sweet tooth, I had wished that we had a ‘not-so-garlicky’ dessert.

I had fun, though, going through all of these garlic dishes. The only concern that I had was that the servers couldn’t see us right away since we were sitting on the booths behind the tall wall of wine display. Also, waiters leave a list of your orders on top of the table and cross each dish out after they have served it. I found it weird that they were doing this for such a classy place. That process didn’t seem quite in sync with the ambiance.

Mad for Garlic 0008If ever you do visit the place, do sit at the middle portion of the restaurant so that you would easily be seen and attended to.

Overall, Mad for Garlic is a cozy place that serves amazing unique ‘garlicky’ dishes!

 

Enjoy eating,
