There’s more to FLAME than the Lobster Fried Rice and the Foie Gras Chawanmushi. Here are the top 5 reasons why FLAME is one of the city’s best restaurants.
BREAD AND BUTTER
Made in small batches, every meal at Flame begins with ciabatta. You break open the warm loaf with bare hands, then take a beat to savor the comforting aroma of freshly baked bread as the steam wafts up into the air, then a slather of umami butter drenched in our own infused oil: it’s almost ritualistic, and every bite is titillating and delightful. We’ve even had guests whisper that they would come back for the bread and butter alone.
Inspired by the portholes in ships, Flame’s culinary team had these vessels specially made for to infuse everything from oil to whisky. Poured over farm-fresh homemade butter, Flame’s proprietary blend for infused oil is made with lemon, garlic, peppercorn and rosemary
As you enter Flame, guests are welcomed by the striking spiral chandelier. Stretching from floor to ceiling, it is accented by tiny air plants, seemingly floating on warm light. Understandably, it’s the most photographed part of the restaurant, and a favorite background for a selfie, even if they are shooting against the light.
The Hub was created to bring the kitchen into the dining room, to bring the chefs out of the back of house and foster conversation and interaction between diner and chef. As an added bonus, the Hub is also the venue for Flame’s exciting series of culinary explorations, from cooking classes with world-renowned chefs, to hands-on pasta making, from wine tastings, to discussions on healthy and sustainable dining.
Discovery Primea stands as Makati’s tallest building, and with Flame perched on the 16th floor, you have sprawling views of various cities from all angles. At the Ayala wing, the bright lights of the central business district seem close enough to touch, while on the Urdaneta side, the unobstructed view of the metropolis is unique to this spot. During the day, the calm and serene greens of the Urdaneta village are a happy juxtaposition from the busy city streets.
