Some table setting details

We checked out this place on a weekday, around 2PM and the place was almost empty. You don't have to go to each station to order. Their menu is actually a compilation of the dishes from all four stops. We checked it out and got the following ---

Red Rice Champorado from 7107 Culture + Cuisine
Red Rice Champorado for 275Php

Served in a jar with a side serving of caramelized crispy dulong, they mixed red rice with malagkit and used tablea. This was topped with some milk and dried fruits.To be honest, it wasn't as good as I thought. It needs to be more chocolaty, IMO, and maybe they should also include a side serving of milk. I also wished that the Champorado was a little more sweeter and the crispy dulong salty than sweet to achieve that addicting contrast. Anyhow, I liked the addition of dried fruits. The husband who's not a sweet tooth liked this but confessed that indeed, it needs more chocolate.

Note: You can ask for more crispy dulong

Bulalo V2.0 for 375Php from 7107 Culture + Cuisine
Bulalo V2.0 for 375Php

Served in a deconstructed way, meat and veggies together with the soup served separately in a tin can type of mug, this dish is definitely for sharing!

A good portion of beef shank with flavorful and tender meat, the bone also had some gorgeous portion of bone marrow! The veggies were done right, nothing overcooked. The broth was amazing! Flavorful, salty, warm - you can even ask for more, free of charge! Hubby loved this!

Molten Pastillas Lava Cake
Molten Pastillas Lava Cake for 185Php

For dessert, we opted to get the Molten Pastillas Lava Cake. Served with two small scoops of Vanilla ice cream in a separate glass, the chocolate cake was dressed with cocoa powder, powdered sugar and plated with some chocolate drizzle.

I wish there's more molten "lava" inside of  this cake.

The cake was chocolatey, warm and moist but the pastillas sauce inside was too runny and the serving was too little. Not even enough to create a "lava" as you slice the chocolate cake. If it was thicker and richer and if they added a bit more, then this dessert will live up to it's name.

Another shot because it's just so gorgeous!

Anyhow, enjoy a spoonful of the cake with the ice cream and you're all good. When I was almost halfway done with this, I took some of the thick chocolate drizzle and was surprised that it actually had a spicy kick! Nel, our server, explained that the chocolate drizzle has siling labuyo! Genius!

That spicy chocolate drizzle!!!!!

I asked for more of this to be drizzled to the cake and IT WAS DIVINE!!! Forget the pastillas, get some more of the spicy chocolate drizzle!

Minty Lemonade from 7107 Culture + Cuisine
Minty Lemonade for 175Php

For our beverage, we tried the Minty Lemonade in a Carafe. They were not kidding when they said minty! The lemonade had lots of minced mint leaves giving it a really refreshing finish.

I'm in love with this design!

Can't complain about their customer service. Nel, our guy, was very accommodating and attentive! He refilled our water glasses proactively and even refilled our glasses with lemonade! He had this "I'm not so sure about your request" look but he still bargained with their kitchen to give me my extra crispy dulong and chocolate sauce. We totally enjoyed our visit! Their people are well trained!
