Taiwanese cuisine continues to make its mark in Filipinos tastebuds. There are now more restaurants serving Taiwan Street Food than ever before.
Botan Black serves authentic Taiwanese and they are a hidden gem in BGC. Their location is not easy to spot.
They are on the second floor of Wumaco Building, Lane P corner 9th Avenue, along Highstreet, on top of the Bird Box stall.
This concept started as a waffle, sandwich and milk tea shop located in Makati. Now it’s a full-blown restaurant offering upscale dining in both Makati and now, BGC location.
On this invite our team from WeLoveToEatPh indulged in a feast- from unique starters to ice shaved desserts. Everyone raved about the tasty and crisp, Fried Pork Intestines, which I politely declined to eat.
I did love three other fried appetizers served, Salted Egg Prawns, classic Salt & Pepper Squid and the addicting bite-sized cuts of Crispy Pork Liempo. I suggest having these pieces before jumping on Botan Black’s well-seasoned mains!
What not to miss? Boldly flavored and spicy, Taiwanese Beef Noodle. It has tender beef, fresh noodles, bokchoy, scallions, and Chinese pickled mustard greens.
If rice is your preference, pair it up with 3 Cup Chicken in a hotpot and BBQ Beef Kang Kong. I guarantee you’ll end up having more carbs than usual.
The Taiwan Style Halo Halo with red bean, monggo, jelly, pearl boba, pudding, nata, taro and more will surely make you smile. There’s also just Red Bean Ice if you wish to keep it simple.
