Making Up with Mama
Smile 2013-10-24
My Mom loves to eat out. Not just for the food but for the time we get to spend together. She knows that we normally eat out with my in laws so I took her to Uncle Cheffy's where my in laws and I had lunch several months ago. My mom is from the south so we met up in the For Bonifacio branch. It was supposed to be a meryenda so I pre ordered the Uncle Cheffy Favorites. A giant brick oven baked pizza with dried tomatoes, mushrooms, anchovy, chili, basil and cheese.

Once served, the pizza took up a lot of the space on the table, impressive! It also came with a side dish of tomato chunks and fresh alfalfa sprouts. The sprouts are best eaten rolled inside the pizza. The pizza itself is really great. The shape gives so much more and we all shared it. The dough is not too tough and slightly chewy with some flour dust underneath lol For a full meal, the pizza can be ordered with pasta too. Oh and the price? Pretty cheap at Php 395 only.

Uncle Cheffy: A Piece 'a Panizza
Cries 2013-09-29
To celebrate a special day, we (or was it just Alvie? lol) were invited to grab lunch at Uncle Cheffy with friends. I have never eaten here, so I was looking forward to it!

 Awesome sign! It's like it's out of a comic.

We were late but arrived just in time *wink wink* because our arrival coincided with that of all the food. Not on purpose, I promise!

   Memphis Barbeque U.S. Beef Rib Finger, P595.00

(1,000 grams) with salad and marble potatoes and sauces.
Ribs! Boy, do they know how to start off a meal!
This looks good, but what was on the menu looked SO much better (see link below). Menu deceptions aren't very rare, I guess, so that's fine. This dish was also just fine for me. I liked the volume of the meat, but felt that the taste was just okay. The meat was tender enough. If I were to compare, I'd say this is a far cry from Racks' tender ribs or New Orleans' flavorful ribs.

   Spaghetti Alejandro, P350.00

Spanish inspired pasta with tomato sauce, smoked chorizo, pimientos and edam cheese.
While I love giant pieces of cheese as much as anyone, this did not look very appetizing to me. But hey, I love pasta. I didn't really taste chorizo or much else because this just tasted like tomato sauce. Nothing more. Pasta doesn't seem to be their specialty but I think they need to up the ante on this one.

   Tiuey Noodles, P295.00

Asian fried noodles with beef, asparagus and cilantro.
I should have said "no uey" to this dish (Just kidding! I didn't order). This was much better (and cheaper) than the spaghetti, but I don't quite understand the charm of this dish. It's Asian but does not taste like it is. It still tasted very much like a pasta dish and I could taste some tomato sauce.here, too. I don't recall that it had asparagus. Hmm, I suggest just avoiding the noodles at Uncle Cheffy's. They aren't horrible, and perhaps this is just personal preference. No one else voiced displeasure over the noodles, but no one was raving about them either.

   Chicken Maurino

I couldn't find this on the menu so it might only be available as a part of the panizza set (details in menu link below). The chicken was alright and tasted a lot like chicken estofado, which tastes a lot like adobo, which isn't my thing.

   Panizza (clockwise from top): East Meets West, P495.00 for 1 whole Larry's Craving, P495.00 for 1 whole Uncle Cheffy Favorites, P395.00 for 1 whole Seafood Lovers, P425.00 for 1 whole

This isn't normally available and is also a part of the set whose menu is below. You get to try 4 for the price one. Not bad, eh? I'm not really going to describe each flavor because apart from some small differences, they all tasted very similar. Honestly, I'm not a fan of thin pizza, and the flavors of these panizzas seemed quite subdued and lacking in life for me. One fun part is how the panizza is eaten. You add lettuce, alfalfa, tomatoes and roll it all up like so.

Fun, yes, and it grants a different experience but the taste came short for us. This, considering the fact that I love all pizza. Focaccia in A. Venue has a better version of this, but just the same, I don't like my pizza thin! tongue

Verdict:
Memphis Barbeque U.S. Beef Rib Finger: Okay
Spaghetti Alejandro: Bad
Tiuey Noodles: Okay
Chicken Maurino: Okay
Panizza: Okay

I don't enjoy being overly critical but there you have it! I expected a lot more because it seems to remain a strong restaurant in Burgos Circle after a long while and I heard good things about it. Perhaps we were just really unlucky? or perhaps it's just a matter of preference. Anyways, it was still a fun occasion and the service was quite good.

 Thanks, Edrik! :)

im hooked
Smile 2012-10-06

 

This dish from Uncle Cheffy is one of my favorite,
even it was just my first time\to dine here, i have made a particular
liking for this meaty dish, its chewy and juicy meat are so hard to resist.
every part of the meat was flavorful that you need not to get any condiments
to fix or adjust it to your taste. you'll definitely be hooked with it's
rich and luscious taste.

Good grub
Smile 2012-09-15
Being around this area makes one feel that there won't be a place that is pretty nice to the wallet. But this restaurant defied that. Sure it may not be the cheapest one out there, but it is worth your money. The servings are good to be shared, and their food will really make you come back for more. Whether it's their meat or their pizzas, everything is made or prepared well, giving your tummy one of its best experiences.

Uncle Cheffy!
Smile 2012-09-04

Uncle Cheffy has lots of culinary delights to offer. What they usually serve are International cuisines. They have Italian, American and European dishes. So if you looking for a perfect place to catch an amazing meal- Uncle Cheffy in Burgos Circle, Forbes Town Center, Global City in Fort Bonifacio, Taguig City. Aside from the excellent dishes that they serve, I have to commend this restaurant for its good conditioned furniture and facilities. I really liked it! The crews are all well trained and I was impressed. Two thumbs up! I would highly recommend dining at Uncle Cheffy in Fort Bonifacio!

First Time!!! :)
Just OK 2012-02-15
We (my parents and my eldest brother) were invited by our former neighbors to have dinner last friday and decided to meet at Uncle Cheffy. I'm excited to see our childhood neighbors that we've lost communication for awhile but thanks to Facebook that we've been reconnected!!! We had fish, baked mussels, pizza, spareribs, rice and a salad. (I forgot to take pictures of other dishes)

 

 

 

 

It's always fun bonding and catching up with friends while having good food in a nice ambiance. Time really flies fast when busy chatting and updating one's lives that we didn't realize that it was time to go home. I will definitely be back and bring some friends here. smile

Uncle Cheffy :D
Smile 2012-02-14
If you think Uncle Cheffy is all that panizza and steak stuff, well you are very wrong! They also have variety of amazing desserts to choose from! And that is one of the reasons why I keep coming back to Uncle Cheffy, because they have a lot of good stuff on them smile

Panizza & more
Smile 2012-01-15
It's Sunday, my favorite day of the week, it’s family day. We were going to watch Mission Impossible and had dinner at Uncle Cheffy before the movies.

 

I had cheese cheese cheese panizza which had different kinds of cheese on it like mozzarella, blue cheese and more. It was yummy and creamy but too much of it is nakakaumay. I like eating it with the steak to balance the flavors. I got the junior which was only 135 pesos. It comes with arugula leaves, alfalfa, tomatoes and onions.

Uncle Cheffy's Steak!
Smile 2011-12-31
My boyfriend and I went to Uncle Cheffy to have dinner. This restaurant is very expensive but foods were really great. Their steak and baby back were scrumptious and appetizing. The staffs were very accommodating and they were always smiling. I did really enjoy the food. Just to give you a tip guys, better be here with lots of money because foods are really pricey. Haha

Pizza time at Cheffys!
Smile 2011-12-29
My boyfriend along with two of our friends, were craving for pizza so we headed to Uncle Cheffy. We ordered their cheese pizza which came with lettuce and tomatoes on the side for extra flavor. The Pizza was delicious. It tasted like a slice of melted cheese with a slight crisp to it. The cheese was so good, alittle salty with a gooey satisfaction. The sauce was tarty with a tomato taste.

Uncle Cheffy for the Nth time :)))))
Smile 2011-11-25
We had dinner at uncle cheffy last night. We ordered their steak and their baby back ribs. My parents liked their steak. The serving was huge and they said that the gravy was good too. But for me, a rib-fan, I still prefer their baby back ribs. Their family platter was good for three. The food was good and we really enjoyed are night. Kudos to Uncle Cheffy! lol

Food Trip at uncle cheffy
Just OK 2011-10-31
My family had lunch at Uncle cheffy - Brick Oven Global cuisine at Global City Taguig. We ordered the Uncle Cheffy Steak, which is grilled and roasted U.S. rib-eye good for 4 to 5 people. They served it with marble potatoes and greens. It cost Php 1,950 which is a good value for your money, considering it can feed about a handful of people and the steak was
This is really good, very tender and mostly lean, We also had a side dish of marble potato.

Pizza and so much more
Smile 2011-07-29
Good food, great set of friends, one nice place to hang out to equals one extra happy night! I've never came across the resto Uncle Cheffy until one media event. After the event, the media relations girls invited us to have dinner at Uncle Cheffy since it's just located around the area. We gave in to their suggestion and let them order since they're the expert when it comes to picking which food to order at this restaurant. Their pizza is just the best! I've never tasted anything so cheesy! It's so delectable, so delicious! I really love it! i also find the place nice to have a nice dinner and make kwento with friends. You should definitely give Uncle Cheffy a try. smile

Taste Comes from the Chef!
Smile 2011-06-30
More often than not our weekend is always on a delay because of two things; (1) I'm on a weekend duty, IKR! (2) boyfriend wakes up late (yes later than me) lol. During the weekend; (if I'm not on sense of duty) we both give ourselves the freedom to wake up later in the day take a break from a demanding work days. However, boyfriend wakes up a little behind schedule that I have to sometimes adjust. But I can't blame him for that I understand that we all have to rest and have a long good sleep. The good thing when I'm on duty I let him snooze more until my shift ended then we take off afterwards.

 Uncle Cheffy Brick Oven BBQ!

That Saturday afternoon, he picked me up and went to Eastwood. We've wanted to watch Kung Fu Panda 2 since the day it shown at the theatre. We waited for bestfriend to arrive, bought a ticket and went around looking for a place to eat. Since it's going to be a last full show we opted to have dinner already.

I remembered discussing everyone’s much loved gastronomy. Boyfriend was yearning for Chinese; I think bestfriend was longing for pasta or anything Italian. I wanted nothing in particular except I really want to eat heavy that night. We checked out places we haven't tried at EW until we arrived at Uncle Cheffy; Brick Oven and Global Cuisine. Seeing the menu, we decided to give it a try.

I had no idea what group of company Uncle Cheffy was included but the cooking was indeed of high-quality; I had to do a little research afterwards. I discovered Uncle Cheffy belongs to the same group, Chef Quarter; that holds Old Vine Grill and Kuse as well ---> now I don't wonder! These establishments are in fact on my list of recommendation for everyone. True enough fine dining can be seen at these restaurants. The skill and passion given by the Chef can be seen and tasted while you eat every little part of the dish.

   Cranberry Juice; P115

   Ripe Mango Shake; P115

   Strawberry Shake; P115

On the table --- we started with our drinks first because we took time reading the menu; 'cuz everything looks so good. I ordered Cranberry Juice; P115 -- I opted to have fresh buko juice but it wasn't available. I assumed they have it since fellow CQ establishments serve it. I love cranberry juice so I chose to try theirs. It's really good but ofcourse nothing beyond the ordinary; still a recommendation! Boyfriend ordered the same thing I normally order; Ripe Mango Shake; P115 -- I don't expect something outstanding from our drinks esp. this one but I notice their Ripe Mango was picked and blended just right in time. Bestfriend tried their Strawberry Shake; P115 -- again I perceived that drinks can be ordinary but yes you can give a leverage hopes in it. It’s refreshing, not too saccharine and just enough blend.

   Pot Roast Beef; P495

Moving forward; the main dish -- Pot Roast Beef; P495. I particularly love this roast beef, it's pretty delicious! The beef is tender and juicy, so easy to bite! The juice and the sauce combined made the whole plate scrumptious! High-five for this! The food portions are good for sharing so I think it may look steep but in fact reasonable.

   BBQ Tuna Belly; P395

Next is BBQ Tuna Belly; P395. Since we already have meat at the table we opt to order seafood. Since the three of us loves salmon we checked it out but there's were no available salmon. Then I saw tuna belly which is also one of our favorite dish. I asked the waiter if it's grilled, yes it is; also request for it to be well done. It is one thing dining in such places you can request for your food with your own little modification? haha! I always wanted everything to be well done. Soon this one arrived I move fast to take a bit, to my surprise it did surpass my expectation. Another amazing dish which you can try at Uncle Cheffy.

 

We dine from the outside but I can see the warmth ambiance inside the restaurant. I've been wanted to eat a real go to steak ever since but I know it can be a little costly so I still have to give it a little more time. The brick wooden patches made the environment exciting.
I will surely pay a visit and share it to my friends or family again. They serve superbly motuh watering dishes. The name itself truly is a global cuisine. Service was good as well; the food arrived fast than projected. I admire Chef Mau and Larry Cortez for giving us a better perceptive of fine dining that dole out competitive global cuisines.
