Bench Cafe, Bonifacio Global City

Bench Cafe BGC
Find it at the second floor of the Bench Flagship Store at Bonifacio High Street!



Today marks the opening of the first ever Bench Cafe located at the Bench Flagship Store in Bonifacio Global City. The cafe is a partnership between Suyen Corporation and FooDee Global Concepts, of which Chef Carlo Miguel is now the corporate executive chef.

The prices aren't bad either. Get All Day Merienda dishes from Php 129 and silog meals from Php 139.

But the main highlight, at least for me, are the Bench/To - their version of bento-style meals where you get meat/seafood, vegetables, and rice (which you can choose to upgrade to garlic rice, dilis rice, talangka rice, or bagoong rice). Prices for the Bench/To meals range from Php 239 to Php 439.

These are just some of the dishes you can expect to find at the newly opened Bench Cafe. Personally, I recommend getting the Tinapa Cones, the Beef Caldereta Bench/To (B9), Flan B, and Pandan Latik (at least those were my favorites). Let me know which are yours!
