Heads up foodies, this is another worthy stop here in Marikina. This establishment opened September last year and my friend and I got invited to their opening. It is located at Gil Fernando Avenue, a busy strip, also an avenue with good food selections besides Lilac street in this city.
Forage is too obvious not to miss especially at night. On top of its surmounting structure which could accommodate around 200 people, its lights and music would veer your senses to them. They have a band on certain nights and have promotions here and there to get you hooked up to them. Months ago they had Beer Pong.
Christian Ting, William Scheirman and Xavier Cruz comprise the young entrepreneurs who put up this place and they serve mostly a fusion of western comfort food. We were served premium meat choices, Bourbon Style Pork Belly and the U.S. Prime Rib Eye Steak. These were decent picks with it being both tender and tasty.
Also got to indulge on pasta via Seafood Ciopinno, appetizing Shrimp Gambas, meaty Scheirman’s Burger, sugary Cream Puffs and sweet Green Tea Match Lava Cake for our dessert. I am not sure if these items are still around as they have commitment to change items once in awhile to continue capturing the Marikina audience.
Tropical Bliss Fishbowl Cocktail is one of the alcohol picks we had that night. And this fish bowl with beer, the whole bottle in it, does get one excited. The beer that could be placed are products of Nipa Brew, Craftpoint Brewing Co., and Crazy Carabao Brewing Co. These are upcoming local craft beers.
If you are looking for a night cap or a go to place to spend your weekend nights, Forage might just give you what you need!
