Review: Borough, The Podium
Last month, we had bloggers quiz night in Borough and we all really had fun. As a matter of fact, it was my first time to attend bloggers quiz. Quiz plus good food was awesome! Hehe. Thank you Aldous and Borough for organizing this event.
Aldous named our team as Lion’s Den. It reminds me of a story from the Bible when Daniel was put in a lion’s den because of his faith and was rescued by God from the hungry lions. There wasn’t even a scratch on him! Amazing, right?
Meet my teammates Manfred, Jessa and Allen with Chef Cuit.
Let’s start our Borough food adventure!
We had Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup (P280), grilled cheese in homemade brioche bread. Just dip it to the tomato soup! This is a must try whenever you visit Borough. I’m craving for it right now as i write. Perfect for the rainy season!
Buffalo Chicken Wings (P360), classic hot and spicy chicken wings originally from Buffalo New York. Served with blue cheese dip.
Chocolate Chicken Wings (P280), this is perfect for the people who wants a chicken wings with a twist. Baked wings coated in cocoa and cinnamon. Served with cilantro sour cream.
Popcorn Calamari (290), popcorn crusted fried squid tossed with extra popcorn for good measure. Served with clarified chilli butter. A must try!
Hummus (130), blended chickpeas mixed with extra virgin olive oil and garnished with paprika. Served with homemade pita bread.
Fries in a Basket (P150), a whole basket of fries and served with Borough’s special ‘Odessa Sauce’.
Haystack Onion Rings (P180), piled high and served with barbecue sauce and sour cream onion dip. This is a bit salty for me so I preferred to dip in sour cream onion sauce.
Mom’s Milk and Cookies (P220), chewy and freshly baked cookies (literally hot) in assorted flavors. Served with cold milk. The best!
Hummingbird Cake, the Old-fashioned Layer Cake of the Day (P220), this is perfect for hot chocolate. It has banana, pineapple, green apple and mango. The cake was not the sweet and I liked it that way.
Mudpie, the Borough’s Pie of the Day (P240), a sort chocolate overload pie. As in! This one compliments well with coffee since I find it too sweet.
Borough can accommodate 70 pax for the first floor and 60 pax for the second floor. This is the perfect hangout for everyone since they are open 24/7.
