[Food] AKROTIRI Modern Eurasian Cuisine Opens in the South!

Now there are more reasons to visit the South! Akrotiri Modern Eurasian Cuisine is a new concept restaurant that has just opened at the Commerce Center, Filinvest City in Alabang. We Filipinos have embraced different flavors both local, foreign and progressive delicious treats and now this new restaurant offers exciting gastronomic experience fusing different food cultures all over the world, I think you need to visit the south soon!
I was lucky to be invited and be a part of their grand opening with top local food and lifestyle bloggers in the metro. Akrotiri didn't hold back on the food, they served us with mouthwatering treats one after the other and it just kept coming!

I had a chat with Akrotiri's General Manager, David Jones and he said “We wanted to bring our knowledge to the Philippines and use all the incredible food that’s in the East and blended it with the West,” Akrotini’s offerings reflect the Mediterranean classics, mainly Greek and other European influences. "but at the same time, we’ve localized the taste to create a new flavor. One can call it ‘fusion’, but we feel that ‘EurAsian’ highlights what we represent—an amalgamation of influences that have strong ties with the Philippine food culture.” David Jones added.

I couldn't help but notice that their bar is packed with a lot of spirits and some really good ones too! Akrotiri also offers really nice variety of concoctions and easy to drink mixes. A surprising selection of Gin is on display with some creative combos such as a Rose Gin with dried chili, Gin Mare with mango & pepper and Portobello Road Gin with summer fruits.
Check out some of these awesome drinks! From left to right, Pimms and Lemonade, Gin Tonic with Ginberys Rose, Gin Mare Tonic & Bloody Mary Akrotiri. Specialty drinks could be seen, surprising guests with unique blends infused with flavours from diverse influences. 
Akrotiri’s Menu is co-conceptualized by Chef Luca Maffei. An Italian chef with intricate taste to flavours and fusion, Chef Luca masterfully re-imagined Akrotiri’s food, bringing the blissful flavours of Asia and Euro-Greek cultures to our local cuisine.
Akrotiri’s story was shared through an audio-visual presentation, but more so when its menu items were exhibited separately, plated attractively for every event-goer’s delight and indulgence. The showcase included the Shell Fish Sauté with Clams, Mussels, Prawns, Squid, and Tomato, and the Eurasian Sour Soup and Souvlaki Skewers for the soup entries. The mezze (appetizers) line-up was headlined by the Wagyu Burger with Cheese, Shitake Mushrooms, Caramelized Onions, and Rustic Fries, plus the Grilled Prawns in Tamarind Dressing and Greens. For the mains, the Wagyu Skirt Steak with Spicy Chilli Jam, Roasted Vegetables, and Paprika Aioli, as well as the Seafood Tagliatelle with Clams, Mussels, Prawns, Squid, and Tomatoes were the highlights, while the Chocolate Garden Mosaiko topped Akrotiri’s dessert offerings.

A feast of specialty menu was offered as part of Akrotiri’s comprehensive food choices—a classic Greek heritage of Mediterranean triad themes that overlap with Malay, Oriental, and European influences. Guests also had their fill from a wide selection of wines, spirits, and beer, as well as carefully curated cocktails that collectively reflect Akrotiri’s distinct coastal blending ethos.

“Metro Manila is an emerging market for restaurants and we wanted to present something new, yet still familiar to the Filipino palate. Using local ingredients and principles plays a vital role in bringing to life our concept of showcasing global coastal food cultures through dishes that remain close to home,” said Akrotiri Head Chef, Ereyca Trinidad.

Weaving together the different flavors found on different coastal food cultures all over the world and presenting them as delicious gastronomic offerings makes Akrotiri a unique destination that delivers an exciting culinary experience that will surely indulge every type of Filipino diner.
