Office breaks are best enjoyed when there’s good food. I often eat lunch at my desk, or buy from the building cafeteria then eat the packed lunch at our office pantry. There are times though that one officemate would invite another to eat out, and before we know it, we’re pushing our chairs away from our desk, walking in the noontime sun, eager to take a yummy break.
One of my favorite go-to’s for office breaks is Bar Dolci. On the first floor, it looks like it’s simply a gelato place. That’s what I thought for a long time. But one visit led us to look more closely around — they served lunch! They had lunch specials, called their Chef’s Specials, at PhP195. It came with a main meal, a glass of iced tea, and a scoop of gelato. Not bad!
Bar Dolci Eats
I loved this! It was just the right amount of cheesy and creamy. I’d go back for this again! It came with slices of toasted bread with raisins. I’m not sure what kind of bread it was, but it was delicious too!
I loved the dip too! I’m not sure if it was aioli, but it tasted like it. It went so well with the bread, which had a sweetness to it. Sarap!
On that day, we had Wintermelon Iced Tea as our drink. It was so good we wished there were free refills. Super refreshing!
If you like meat and pesto, get this dish! My officemate ordered this and devoured the dish.
When you place your order, you already specify what gelato flavor you’d want served for dessert. I chose the Brown Butter Pecan. It was so good. I’m salivating just thinking about it.
Bar Dolci is located at Forbestown Road cor. Burgos Circle at Fort Bonifacio. It’s more than just a gelato and macaron place! It has yummy meals that I want to try more of. We’ll definitely have office breaks in this restaurant again soon!
