A SLICE of Pia Cayetano

A SLICE of Pia Cayetano


One of the new concept restaurants in Bonifacio High Street Central is SLICE, the latest baby of Senator Pia Cayetano. If Sonja's Cupcake bakery ambiance and Cafe Mary Grace's homey feel-good food had an offspring with a focus on healthy and natural products, this would be it. :)

Aidan wanted to eat late at night to try a new restaurant, so we decided to try SLICE, which was on soft-opening, for our all-boys night out...

Bonifacio High Street Central Restaurants:

SLICE has a welcoming, bright and cheery ambiance that is conducive to family bonding time. It also has a nice private function room that can be reserved for small events and gatherings, like a baby shower.

It perfectly complements the Jamba Juice store beside it.

The place has a "modern American bakery" vibe inspired by Pia Cayetano's travels and her childhood days growing up in the US.

They have a limited menu (Slice High St. Opening Menu) and are still in the process of preparing the family Filipino recipes to be served in the restaurant.

This sums up the SLICE concept, written by Senator Pia Cayetano:

"Slice is where dessert comes first, breakfast is served all day, healthy alternatives are always recommended, and where we enjoy life one slooow bite and slice at a time."

We love it because it is a kid-friendly venue; the boys had a great time coloring the activity sheets. Hope they introduce interactive toys soon to keep the kids entertained! :)

★ Thick Tomato (P120 +10% service charge). Puree of fresh tomatoes infused with cream.

It was raining last Saturday night, so this freshly made hot soup was really comforting. I thoroughly enjoyed the full flavor of the soup and its thick consistency.

★ Cream of Carrot (P120 +10% service charge). Puree of fresh carrots mixed with aromatic herbs and cream.

Aidan preferred the Cream of Carrot, which I found equally good. For those times when you just want to have dinner with really good soup, then this is the place to be. :)

★ Brown Arroz Caldo (P150 +10% service charge). Chicken breast chunks with brown rice infused with ginger and turmeric. A traditional Filipino favorite. Choice of either chicken breast or egg.

I love their healthy version of the Arroz Caldo. :) It had a very thick consistency because of the brown rice and malagkit (sticky rice) mix. It was quite flavorful with its generous serving of egg, chicken, and garlic bits.

★ Seafood Puttanesca (P380 +10% service charge). Salmon and shrimp in lightly creamed puttanesca sauce in linguine pasta.

The Seafood Puttanesca was good to share and had a yummy, creamy sauce with good chunks of salmon, shrimp, and cheese. It's one of those pasta dishes that make you feel good after eating it.

SLICE High Street Menu: Muffins, Cupcakes, Cookies, Pies and Cakes, Granola and Brownies

Here, you can have delicious food and end with a yummy dessert, which a lot of restaurants tend to overlook or forget.

★ Choco Yema Cupcake (P60).

They are best known for their chocolate cupcake with yema on top. This one never fails to put a smile on anyone's face. :) Ang sarap nga! I hope they make a bigger cake version of it.

Before the restaurant opened, they had a stall serving muffins right beside Jamba Juice. I thought it would just sell baked goods, but I'm glad that they also serve hot, healthy dishes.

Citrus Burst Muffin (P70).

The best seller is the Citrus Burst Muffin. It is best eaten when it is freshly prepared in the resto.

Granola Light (P225 - 250g), and Granola Original (P225- 250g).

They make their own granola -- perfect for breakfast! :)

★ Banana Pudding (Lite -P90, Regular - P150).

We also got to taste their own version of the Banana Pudding, which the boys liked. :)

It was great to eat here, especially on its soft opening. We even met Senator Pia Cayetano herself :) Her personality is manifested in every tiny details of the restaurant. 


Overall, we love the family-friendly feel and healthy focus of the restaurant. Probably, the only unhealthy item in the menu is the New York Cheescake (P270).

The boys loved all the items we ordered -- the soup, arroz caldo, pasta, muffin, cupcakes and dessert -- which is quite rare. This is one of those places where you can be assured of a really good healthy meal, with a really good dessert. Jamba Juice complements it very well. Try it! :)
