Akrotiri: A unique gastronomical experience!

According to James Beard, Food is our common ground, a universal experience. With this being factored, we learn to socialize and learn more about different cultures because of food. With the same reason that us Filipinos have learned to embrace both local and foreign cuisines.

Just last week, I was honored to be invited to the gathering of the top local and lifestyle bloggers for a night of extremely appetizing modern dishes, in one of the newest restaurant here in the south.

Akrotiri is located at the G/F of Commerce Center Filinvest City in Alabang. Akrotiri introduced the unique Eurasian culinary concept. It reflects the Mediterranean classics with a combination of Asian taste which creates a new flavor and mouthwatering dishes. The menu was co-conceptualized by  Luca Maffei, an Italian chef with intricate taste to flavors and fusion.

Did You Know?

Akrotiri is a Greek term for a Peninsula. It is also an ancient village on the volcanic Greek island of  Santorini.

Akrotiri is a classic Greek heritage of Meditterenean triad themes that overlap with Malay, Oriental, and European influences.

What makes Akrotiri unique from other restaurants here in the south is their food serving, some may see it expensive but I can say that with the very generous serving for every dish that will be served in your table is very reasonable and definitely worth every single peso that you will spend, especially with the gastronomical experience that you will gain.

Here are some of the few dishes that you may want to try when you visit Akrotiri. These are my Top 5.

1. Wagyu Skirt Steak with Spicy Chili Jam, roasted vegetables, and paprika aioli

The very Tender Wagyu Steak complements perfectly with the Chili jam that gives a little kick and boosts the taste and aroma of the steak which I really liked and roasted vegetable completing the experience for this dish.

2. Angus Tenderloin with Spiced Crust, Hibiscus Dressing & Vegetables

If you are a meat lover, this will definitely catch your attention, not only with the generous serving but also with the blend of vegetables and dressing that was paired with the Angus Tenderloin that will crave you to have a slice after another.

3. Chicken Satay Skewers with rice, curry sauce, grilled vegetables

Totally hands up for this Chicken Satay, every skewer of chicken was perfectly grilled with the peanut and curry sauce perfectly complementing each other and a giving a very wonderful experience on your palate.

4. Grilled Salmon Fillet with Tzatziki-wasabi dressing 

This literally kept me coming back for more, it was perfectly grilled that it maintained the softness of the salmon which is already great on its own but stepping it up further with Tzatziki-wasabi dressing.

5. Seafood Tagliatelle with clams, mussels, prawns, squid, and tomatoes
Whenever Seafood that was served is not fresh and was not cooked properly, I tend to develop an allergic reaction, that is one of the reasons that I have been avoiding seafood, but taking the risk and making this as the highlight of my food experience, I did try it and guess what? I did not develop an allergic reaction! which is a good news but the more exciting part was aside from being fresh and properly cooked, everything went well with the tagliatelle pasta.

Need a little unwinding?

they also have a Minibar serving most of our favorite cocktails and beverages. You'll also notice a prominent shelf of famous Jameson whiskey frames. Diners can order Manhattan and Martinis or the Expresso Martinis. Traditional drinks from the British Isles are also available like Bloody Marys and Pimms & Lemonade.
I just had a glass of my favorite Mojito while my friends are enjoying Margarita's and some famous drinks made by David  Jones, the General Manager of Akrotiri.

Akrotiri is the newest and unique destination for foodie lovers that are looking for an exciting culinary experience. The Filipino diner will surely indulge and have an amazing gastronomic experience.
