I’ve never been to any restaurant that is meticulously detailed and striking like the Another Story in Evia Mall, Alabang. The restaurant itself is magical, as if you’re being transformed into a fairy tale setting. The interior is very brilliant, I didn’t imagine that uncoordinated things can add spark to the place. From the table linens, plates, glasses and kitchen utensils each pieces makes your meal special.
It’s not all about the amazing interior of Another Story why customers are coming back. They also have the home-style cooking of food that your palate would love. From the plating to ingredients you will notice that they are after the quality of preparing you a good meal.
Another Story Salad (P595), maybe a little bit heavy in your budget but this huge bowl is loaded with fresh romaine, grilled prawns, shiitake mushrooms, slices of parmesan cheese and walnuts. It’s the kind of salad that you can eat all day if your on a diet-mode.
Bolognese Spaghetti of Linguine (P495) and Vongole Manila Clams (P525) Another Story’s al dente pastas were beautifully presented in a big white plate but for me it lacks something to make it extraordinary. I guess they need to experiment more on the sauces to give an extra twist.
We all said “wow” to the Roast Chicken (P595) as it landed on our table. The garnish makes the chicken too beautiful to eat. It’s a plain roast chicken with not too much flavor on it.
Baby Back Ribs with BBQ Sauce (P595), meat lover would surely enjoy this dish, perfectly cooked with lipsmacking barbecue sauce with fried plantain and corn on the cob. I suggest get an extra rice and your tummy will be happy after.
Roast Pork Belly (P495) and Beef Brisket (P595), were also both good. Actually it’s hard to choose which is the best among the meat selections as each dish has its own character. What gives them one thing in common is that all of them are tender and juicy. The mashed potato on the side was so creamy, you may want to have an extra order.
As a coffee lover, I enjoyed the distinctive aroma and taste of the vietnamese coffee. The presentation of their drinks is something unique from the usual coffee shop that I have been to. It is served in a cup with a paper doilies, placed in a wooden cutting board with an oatmeal chocolate cookie. I must say Another Story is another brilliant creation of Ms. Ica Manalo Sebastian, the same owner of Cafe Voila in Tagaytay.
