Akrotiri Modern Eurasian Restaurant in Commerce Center Alabang
Greece is my current favorite country. I had an awesome time in Greece where we also welcomed the new year. I feel in love with the beautiful sights of seas, old buildings, funky alleys and pastel buildings. I had a great shopping adventure in Ermou Street. I love the gods the goddesses, and the Greek people (they seem friendly to tourists). I love the food so much that I wouldn’t feel punished to eat salads 24/7. There is no restaurant that we tried that we didn’t like.
When we went back to Manila, I sorely missed the generous servings of salads in the restaurants. There are only a few good Mediterranean restaurants in Manila. Down South of Metro Manila, there is a new Modern Euroasian Cuisine Restaurant that reflects the Mediterranean flavors of Greek, Italian, and Spanish cuisines and localized the taste to create a new flavor. Welcome to Akrotiri.
Akrotiri is located in Commercenter Alabang.
If you are coming from Manila or any point in Manila, you can take the P2P Bus from Greenbelt 1 to Alabang Town Center. From the drop off point, t is a 14-minute walk per google maps.
We got to try some of Akrotiri’sbest-sellers (there are a lot in the menu!) – but we are saving the rest of the good food for our next visit (nevermind that it is located n Alabang).
Note that the food photos below are taken from the VIP Night. Actual plate and sizing may be different.
Squid Stuffed with Feta Foam Php 550
It is a challenge to cook squid, but this one is chewy and seasoned perfectly.
Watermelon Salad, Feta cheese, Lettuce, Walnuts, Balsamic Dressing Php 350
I love everything in this salad!
Wagyu Skirt Steak with Spicy Chili Jam, Roasted Vegetables, Paprika Alioli Php 900
The wagyu beef is just perfect and I love the spread of colorful veggies
We had a pleasure to meet the General Manager of Akrotiri, David Jones who pleasantly offered and mixed a house specialty cocktail for me –
Gin and Tonic with Chili Peppers (why not?)
Cocktails with peppers? That sounds silly (sili)!
He said that the beauty (or demon?) of its drink is that if I drink it slowly, the flavors of chili would be strongly infused in the cocktail.
It turned out to be really smooth to drink. It gives a little warmth inside though. But nothing to strong to make you feel tipsy (or maybe, I just have high tolerance to alcohol?).
Always drink moderately.
