Tucked away in the heart of Rustan's Makati, the East is a little restaurant that serves creative Asian cuisine. They serve some Korean dishes like bulgogi and Korean style pancakes, some Thai food like Pad Thai noodles, some Chinese victuals like Binondo Lomi, some Singaporean fare like the Roasted Hainanese Chicken Rice, some Filipino dishes like the Lapu-Lapu with Tamarind sauce, and a lot of Japanese ones such as sushi, sashimi, and donburi. They also offer salads, sandwiches, coffee, tea and wine.
I barely remember what I've ordered here before, being that it was a few years ago. Perusing the menu, the Chicken Bulgogi caught my eye and instantly formed images in my mind that had my mouth watering already. While it had that sweet savory taste I was hankering for at that moment, I realized I would have loved it better had it been beef instead of chicken. Sadly, they didn't have that.
The Signature Iced Tea (P80) pretty much tasted like any other house iced tea, with its sweet mix of syrup. I did spot some flavors of Pinkerton Ice Cream. I was really, really tempted to order the Dulce de Leche Sea Salt, but decided against it at the last minute. I had planned on heading to Bono and stuffing my face with gelato (I was craving for it for several weeks already, for crying out loud!), and I wasn't about to let any sudden temptation derail my plans. I'm gonna get you next time Pinkerton, don't worry!
