Flavours by Chef Fham: Good Ol' Comfort Food in Tomas Morato

While I've always found myself in Tomas Morato, I know for a fact that there are more foodie gems in the area I've yet to discover. That's why when Joy, a fellow blogger, mentioned there's a restaurant in front of Il Terrazzo that goes by the name of Flavours by Chef Fham, I can't help but wonder... Just where is this restaurant? I haven't even heard of it yet. (●´ω`●)ゞ

Flavours by Chef Fham

As it turns out, Flavours by Chef Fham is located on the 3rd floor of the private POS Building at Tomas Morato corner Scout Madriñan, facing the Rustan's Super Market side of Il Terrazzo.

No wonder I've never seen the restaurant yet. It's inside an entire building I never thought would be home to a restaurant! Which was actually wrong of me to assume... As after getting onto the 3rd floor of POS, I found out there were other restaurants on the same floor. All this time, I was missing out on a good number of dining gems in this area! ლ(ٱ٥ٱლ)

The Food


Anyhow, let's now move on to the food... From what I know, Flavours by Chef Fham specializes in serving good ol' comfort food. From all-day breakfast offerings to savory treats perfect for pulutan, Flavours got you covered! But apart from the familiar yet inspired dishes, it was also interesting to know that most, if not all, of the items were made from scratch!

Nachorilla (P185)

To start off our afternoon merienda, we had this serving of nacho-tortilla hybrid. This is far from what you can readily get at the supermarket as every piece is homemade. The nachorilla chips were crunchy and had a smoother texture, which really goes well with the toppings. Actually, even the chips alone are enjoyable. We just can't stop munching piece after piece!

Sizzling Sisig (P170) with Egg (P180)

For those craving for something more sinful, there's the Pinoy classic sisig made from parts of a pig's face. Just like good ol' sisig, Flavours' version is as fatty as it can get, so those watching their cholesterol level should definitely look away. Savory, smoky, slightly spicy, chewy and tart -- just like how I like my sisig. Too bad though this is a tad bit oily.

Fish and Chips (P190)

As surprising as it may seem, this fish and chip dish is probably my favorite savory item from all the dishes we had. The battered fish was fried to a nice crisp, while retaining moisture on the inside. The garlic aioli dip it comes with is also the perfect accompaniment. However, the fish itself lacked some seasoning, which was really a shame. Good thing though, the homemade fries -- perfectly seasoned and perfectly deep-fried, were awesome! 👌

Banoffee Honey Toast (P150)

For dessert, we had Flavours' version of honey toast made from brioche bread they bake fresh everyday. Topped with bananas, toffee, almonds, whipped cream and coffee ice cream, this is a highly satisfying treat especially if you love banoffee and coffee. And while I'm not personally into banoffee that much, I really love this dessert, especially the brioche they make.

Mint Nutella Honey Toast (P150)

Since I really dig Flavours' brioche, it's just natural that I fell in love with this mint-nutella variant too. Topped with nutella, almonds, whipped cream, fresh mint and mint-chocolate ice cream, this is another honey toast I'd definitely love to have again on my next trip.

Cucumber Lemonade (P140) and Flavours Mint Ice Tea (P75)

As for drinks, we had two concoctions perfect for summer or in the hot and humid Manila weather, in general -- the zesty and highly refreshing cucumber lemonade which is not too tart, and the homemade mint iced tea which is another great thirst-quencher.

THE VERDICT

Although a little off the beaten path, I'm happy to have discovered Flavours by Chef Fham. From the savories, to the sweets, and even up to the beverages, we were left satisfied and wanting for more. And for the quality of Chef Fham's homemade offerings, I love how prices are kept pocket-friendly. Perfect for both a weekend date or chill night with friends! So if you ever find yourself in Tomas Morato, give this dining gem a try! I myself am already planning my next visit. Need to try their all-day breakfast and heavy meals soon! ☆~(ゝ。∂)
