Food trends are at its peak today. Multiple restaurants with unique concepts are popping up here and there, yet its still rare to find a gem which we can truly vouch for. There are a lot of mind-blowing restaurants around the Metro which is still waiting to be discovered by many and I think one of them is Providore in SM Aura, Taguig.
The restaurant is so unique that you can find a cafe, bistro & al fresco bar all at the same time. But don’t get me wrong, you wont be overwhelmed because it has its own distinctive plain sailing atmosphere. The place quickly gives a sense of easy chilling along with its incredible food selection.
Providore is another innovative concept of Raintree Hospitality and sits at the ground floor of the said premier mall. From the main entrance, you will be welcomed by a mini cafe, confections and a miniature replica corner of the General’s Store in Boracay.
As you go inside, the bistro dining is filled with natural flow of sunshine along with vibrant beige with hints of vintage blue and pastel yellow.
Outside, a cute alfresco bar is waiting to entertain you and your friends while cooling off with their stunning drinks and cocktails. Their Happy hour Buy 1 take 1 on specific beers is from 8AM – 11AM and 4PM – 8PM.
When it comes to the food. The menu is as extensive as it can get ranging from all day breakfast meals, pastry board, greenery, American, Filipino comfort food and so so much more.
When trying out a new restaurant, it became our habit to choose one dish from the menu then reserve the rest for bestsellers. They suggested their bestseller “Salmon Grill Plate” (Php595).
The dish is served in a huge plate with a bowl of mountain rice. The whole serving of salmon is covered by greek salad and is complimented with a lemon yogurt dip. The mixture of red and brown rice were extremely soft and the salad has the boldest flavors which makes it the perfect partner for the buttery salmon that melted on our mouths. The salmon was so fresh, it was perfectly medium cooked, moist and flaky.
For our own preference we opted for the “Big Boy” (Php375) from their “Everything Breakfast. All Day Long Menu”. The meal was massive! It had smoky crispy breakfast potatoes, warm french toast, poached egg, bacon and the best part, the homemade sausage patty.
The patty has its unique good balance of pepper and sweetness. It definitely sealed the deal of this meal.
The coolers that were brought to us were also irresistible. Their best selling Calamansi Lychee was so refreshing and is a must try! The sour, sweet and minty flavors drops the bomb everytime we take a sip and we can’t get over it!

As for the dessert, since we were already so full, we just requested for something light – hence they presented a slice of their Ube Cake. It was so soft, not too sweet and the coconut icing on top goes with the fluffy sponge-like chiffon. It made our dining even more special.
Despite of the fulfilling meal, Providore made us even more curious that we thought we should try something new from their menu each time we go back. Overall, the restaurant offers a great ambiance for catch-ups, get together luncheons or dinners with friends, colleagues or family. As for me, if I am to bring a foreigner friend again in BGC, this is where we’ll eat and I’m sure Providore wont disappoint! Did you know that they already opened a branch in Cebu?
