Recommendation by Cristalle Belo
Blackbird is hidden away in plain sight. The mysterious building on the fringes of the Ayala Triangle Gardens is actually a luxurious restaurant escaping away from the busy streets. History runs deep in Blackbird, as it is hosted in the passenger’s terminal and control tower (called Nielson Tower) of the country’s first commercial airport. It’s the history of Nielson Tower that inspired Blackbird’s menu. Inspirations from the West meet the East as the chefs behind the kitchen’s station pluck influences from all over the map. Blackbird has a way of updating these historic references in its own way, from the sleek interiors to every dish. Classic pastas, pizzas, and grilled meats take equal importance as the Rendang, Nasi Goreng, or Poké.
