Artisan Emporium at Estancia Mall: Fresh Out Of The Kitchen To Your Table


The #CertifiedBloggers were invited by Chef Mira Cruz for an intimate food tasting afternoon at her newly opened restaurant Artisan Emporium in Estancia Mall at Capitol Commons. The first thing I noticed about the place is it's simplicity. It exudes a warm and intimate ambience. Cozy. Not intimidating. It's a place where you would like to have a relaxed conversation with a loved one over a cup of coffee, enjoy lunch with friends or have a me-time with a slice of cake.

The Food Experience

Buttered Pandesal, Cheese Pimiento Spread and Blueberry Liver Pate

A warm pan de sal is a breakfast staple among Filipinos. But this bread has actually earned the title all-day bread because we eat this anytime of the day. Artisan Emporium's Buttered Pandesal has brought back childhood memories as my teeth sink into it's softness. A favorite spread of mine is the Cheese Pimiento. Chef Mira's version has a buttery taste with the perfect amount of saltiness and pimiento. A welcome variation of the usual. The Blueberry Liver Pate has aroused my interest. I love blueberry cheesecake and never have I imagined combining blueberries and liver pate. Perfect marriage of ingredients. I had this for my next three pandesal.

Pumpkin Soup

I have two favorite soups -- Pumpkin and Clam Chowder. Both are available at Artisan Emporium. They also have Truffled Mushroom. This one I must try when I visit. The Pumpkin Soup is smooth and creamy. I don't like a pumpkin soup that's a bit chunky. This one is just right. I find it a bit salty for my taste though since I'm on a low-salt diet.

Hickory Pork

My family and friends know how much I like anything braised with hickory sauce. I always have a bottle in my pantry. I was all smiles when Hickory Pork was served. Chef Mira makes her own Hickory Sauce and we are convincing her to please sell this sauce in a bottle because it is so good. 

Chicken Galantina

Chicken Galantina is a dish I associate with Christmas and a dish I can't cook because it's too complicated for my cooking skills, or lack thereof.  The serving at Artisan Emporium is generous and the gravy complements the dish. I brought some home for my hubby and he devoured it! 

Moringa Iced Tea

A refreshing drink with a twist offered at Artisan Emporium is the Moringa Iced Tea.  Had I brought a car, I'll buy bottles of this to bring home. 

For The Sweet Tooth

S'mores Cake

A traditional campfire treat at the comfort of your table at Artisan Emporium is the S'mores Cake. Make sure you still have space for dessert and coffee!

Red Velvet Panna Cotta 

Artisan Emporium also serves desserts in a jar. One of them is the Red Velvet Panna Cotta

Salted Graham Panna Cotta

I am not a dessert person. But the Salted Graham Panna Cotta has captured my taste buds. This is so good I had to let a spoonful linger in my mouth and spend a moment in silence to savor the taste. I fell in love with these. I wanna run to Artisan Emporium as I write this. This is LOVE.

Fresh Out Breads

The breads from Artisan Emporium are freshly baked. Chef Mira assured us that these breads don't contain preservatives and bromate-free.
