ALLIUM is the restaurant reincarnation in Makati of our favorite Studio Kitchen in Alabang, by Filipino-American Chef Mark Tan. Its name is inspired by the genus of plants that include onions, garlics, chives, and leeks and responsible for the flavors we enjoy in our food.
We tried the degustation sampler and grilled meat selections prepared by Chef Mark during one of our Mercato partners' meeting. His specialty is contemporary American cooking using fresh local ingredients and good quality imported meats.
