Atelier Vivanda Manila

Atelier Vivanda Manila
 An evolving steakhouse concept that seeks to better itself on each visit.

Chef Akrame Benallal's passion to share good food extends to Manila. He is known for Akrame his first restaurant that open back in 2011, which sensationalised enough to receive a 2-Star mark on the Michelin Guide. That may have affected their early days here in Manila as expectations were high beyond reason. I decided to wait out the hype and let the restaurant warm-up to a stable state, which made my dining experience excellent.


SPECIAL LUNCH SET (950 PHP)

Atelier Vivanda Manila makes lunch more than just a munch with their 6 piece set, composed of an Appetiser, Main Course, Pomme de Terre (Starch), Salad, Coffee or Tea, and finally a dessert to sweeten the deal further. Besides the savings, one has the total curated experience that represents Atelier Vivanda.

APPETISER

PUMPKIN SOUP
Smooth pumpkin puree and crisp pumpkin chips gives a nice contrasting texture thats supported in flavour by the fried shallots and sweet candied walnuts
OR
The Cauliflower Soup 
Smoked Haddock and Parmesan Cheese

MAIN COURSE

Grilled Rack of Lamb (850 PHP)
 Although the lamb was a bit of a challenge to slice the rich meaty flavour was too good to pass. When it's meat I don't mind using my teeth.
OR
Duck Confit (975 PHP)
 Cooked to a crisp texture that holds a savoury treat within. Amazing that you can have this for only (950 PHP) with the lunch and more.
OR
Yellow Fin Tuna (650 PHP)
OR
Le Croquavor (675 PHP)

POMME DE TERRE (Potato)

Mashed Potatoes
A very fine mashed potato that was mistaken for a sauce. It's an ideal pair with their crispy duck confit.
OR
Sauteed Potatoes and Pommes Dauphine 
Marbled potatoes sautéed with spice for a punchy starch. 

SALAD

Mixed Green Salad
 A nice leafy cushion for the filling lunch set

BEVERAGE

Coffee or Tea with Walnut Fanancier
 No need to retreat elsewhere for a post-meal coffee, because they have illy coffee to brew.

DESSERTS

Vanilla Créme Brulée (350 PHP)
OR
Chocolate Pot / Praline (350 PHP)



HAPPY HOUR MENU

Happy Hour menu composes of delicious and handy treats that pairs all to well with their Unlimited White and Red wine for 595 PHP or Sparkling Wine for 695 PHP available from 4-7 PM daily. 


Truffle Fries (245 PHP)
 A satisfying stack of crispy and filling pieces of potato with a nice coat of truffle. This pairs well with their unlimited wine offers.

Mussels (465 PHP)
 A feel good bowl of mussel simmered in white wine, onion, garlic, and sprinkled with parsley.

DRINKS

Vivanda Manila Signature Cocktail (350 PHP)
 I personal enjoyed this calm drink with a nice peak half way, which descends shortly after.

 Cool down with Atelier Vivanda Manila's refreshing citrus drinks.
