What a wonderful treat! The Baby Barangay was invited to dine at Sage Bespoke Grill at Shangri-la Makati, a restaurant with a new dining concept that showcases premium superior steaks, seafood and comfort food. I absolutely love steak, so yes, I was super excited about this invitation–I could not wait to sample their bestselling dishes. And oh my, I have to say, they did not disappoint. Actually, they far exceeded my expectations and set the bar high for what constitutes a good steak. If you love steak and are looking to treat yourself to the best, well, look no further than Sage.
Sage’s very own Chef Eric Weidmann has created an a la carte menu of innovative dishes with flavours and textures that surprise the palate. You can start with their refreshing appetizers, such as Ceviche Scallops, Oysters and Wagyu Beef Carpaccio. The chef’s specials include pork short ribs, slow-cooked for 3 hours in the Josper grill, and the lobster roll with Boston lobster meat. And for the meat lovers, well, don’t forget to order the Josper-grilled mains – chateaubriand (Australian wagyu), bone-in ribeye (CAB certified Angus beef), and dry-aged bone-in strip loin. The dessert highlights include the traditional warm tarte tatin, caramelized pineapple, and chocolate sphere – brownies, 70% whipped ganache, poached pear, warm chocolate sauce.

The secret behind their perfectly cooked steaks is the Josper Grill. It combines a grill and an oven in a single machine, so your chosen dish can be grilled to perfection without the risk of overcooking. Also, it preserves the juiciness and texture to make it gastronomically balanced for the palate.
