Along Sgt. Esguerra Street in Quezon City, you will find Full Belly Craft Kitchen, which promises to have you leaving the place with… tadaaah!… a full belly. The resto’s concept is comfort food based on variations of belly meat. I usually go for the place’s Executive Meals which provide satisfying single serving belly-based dishes and Fully Belly Craft Kitchen’s own blend of iced tea.
My go-to order is the Roast Beef Belly Plate. Tender roasted beef belly meat served with creamy mashed potatoes and roasted vegetables drizzled with fragrant truffle oil.
Desserts are no less imaginative: the Lemon Ginger Pound Cake was a compact moist combination of sweetness and tartness, while the New York Cheesecake packs a surprise – homemade bacon jam, in keeping with the resto’s belly theme.
