Worry be gone because located in the diamond area of Poblacion, Makati is a dining place housing everything that you are looking for – Dr. Wine is owned by a French Sommelier and they are actually offering more than just the drink in their name.
Perfect for an unforgettable date night for couples, a lovely eat out with the beloved fam, and even just a delectable well-deserved me time, Dr. Wine promises a dining experience beyond excellence, especially now that they even revamped their menu, adding some dishes that just should not be missed out on.
Now, if you are ready to take on your French journey with Dr. Wine, all you have to do is sit back, get a hold of your spoon and fork, and relax because first on our list is one of their Housemade Charcuterie, the Terrine de Foie Gras Au Torchon A L’Armagnac (Php 750) that is served with apple chutney, pumprenickel, and artisan bread. This dish is actually one of their bestsellers, so better try this out like we did!
From that one, let’s go to the main event and have a fill of their Main Courses! First up is their Cassoulet Toulousain (Php 900) which is of a rich, slow cooked casserole that has duck leg confit, toulouse & garlic sausages, smoked pork belly and neck, alongside white beans. Indeed, this one is flavorful, especially the big white beans were cooked for hours in chicken stock.
Next to that is another tasty main course of theirs called Georges Blanc’s Mother Secret Chicken Recipe (Php 780). Georges Blanc is a famous French cook and apparently this recipe is of his mother’s which also supposed to be a michellin recipe. Nonetheless, this one certainly levels up this dining experience being it is of an organic free range spring chicken cooked with mushrooms, cream, and lemon juice.
The third and last main course we had was their Provencal Grilled Pork Tenderloin à L’échalote (Php 680). This one is such a favorite, no doubt, as this truly has a strong taste that your palate will definitely love. Of pork tenderloin marinated for 48 hours in a strong mustard marinade and grilled on a cast iron, this one is also served with shallots and balsamic sauce.
To make your dining experience with Dr. Wine even more so exquisite, do not forget to have even a few of their sides as those are just heavenly as well, especially their Stir Fry French Beans with Shallots & Bacon Bites (Php 230) as well as their Creamy Mushrooms Rosemary & Thyme (Php 230). Each sporting a unique set of flavors and textures that undeniably will make you reach for more.
Ending this with not just a sweet kiss, but a heavenly sweet one, you indeed will have mouthful after mouthful of their The Doctor’s Stairway to Heaven (Php 280)This is surely a lip-smacking good treat that is a serving of chocolate custard topped with whipped cream and crunchy belgian wafer!
Amazing may be an understatment when describing the dining experience you will have with Dr. Wine, especially when they got the double Ds – drink and dine – all figured out.
