Do you know what it takes to get a sumptuous meal of Western dishes that appeals to the Pinoy palate?
The answer is 390 Degrees.
That’s the name of the vibrant and well-appointed restaurant located at Sequoia Hotel in Aseana Business Park, Paranaque.
That’s also the temperature maintained in the restaurant’s signature charcoal brick oven which cooks all the viands it serves, all masterfully curated by Chef Mark Griffin.
Operated by the same team behind Ombu Kusina in Quezon City led by its owner, Edison Lo, a veteran in the Filipino F&B scene, and its Marketing Manager Tammy Lim, 390 Degrees brings imaginative takes on classic Western dishes, served in generous portions and in a luxurious setting.
I had a sneak preview of its offerings in time for Valentine’s Day almost two years ago and was looking forward to its grand opening. However, the pandemic struck and 360 Degrees’ grand launch was postponed.
In the meantime, the restaurant set about making its signature dishes available to the dining public despite the lockdowns and restrictions on the restaurant industry by innovating on its offers. Thus, its much celebrated party trays and DIY Black Burger Kit made their way into many a foodie’s heart during the community quarantine.
A little under two years after its soft opening, 390 Degrees is finally ready to unveil its delicious signature dishes for dine-in, which include:
Tomato Soup with Ravioli (Php240). A comforting bowl of roasted and pureed local tomatoes topped with spinach-cheese raviolo.
Beef Brisket Sandwich (Php490). Tender slices of 5-star Angus beef topped with lettuce, tomato, crispy-fried onions, caramelized shallots and seasoned mustard served inside house-made charcoal activated buns.
Chicken Skewers (Php360). Flavorful and juicy grilled chicken pieces in house-made sauce served with buttered vegetables on thyme-infused rice pilaf.
Signature Iced Tea (Php120). House-brewed black tea infused with pineapple and lemon.
Thinking of having a get-together here with family and friends? You can reserve the place for exclusive private dining (with a sanitized set up) for three hours. The place can accommodate a maximum of thirty people (to be able to observe physical distancing and other safety measures) for a consumable food and drinks order of Php15,000.

Beef Brisket (Php880 ala carte | Php3,490 quarter slab | Php5,900 half slab | Php10,700 whole slab). Five-star Angus beef slab slow-roasted in 390 Degrees’ oven.
BBQ Pork Ribs (Php1,370). Oven-roasted pork ribs dressed in house-made BBQ sauce.
Blackened Salmon (Php2,650). Oven-baked salmon fillet with creamy dill sauce.
You can even bring home desserts from 390 Degrees’ Breads and Pastries line such as these decadent Chocolate Banoffee Pie (Php150 pie | Php575 box of four) and Mango Banoffee Pie (Php150 pie | Php575 box of four).
Its grand opening may have been derailed by the pandemic, but with all its innovative and delicious offers, I still stand by my prediction that 390 Degrees is all set to be hottest foodie destination in the metro.
Many thanks to Edison, Tammy and Chef Griffin for a wonderful meal and a fun event that became a mini-reunion of foodies. Our group missed each other during the lockdowns and appreciated the opportunity to come together again.
