Chef Fernando Aracama is one of the more popular chefs in our country because he is often seen in all types of media.
I have great respect for this guy. He is just a bit older than me, but he has proven to many that he is someone you should take seriously.
He has been researching, teaching, going around the world and the country, and he only gets better and better everyday.
This "baby" of his found at The Fort Strip of the Bonifacio Global City, deserves his name, because whether he is there or not, the quality of the food and the service is intact.
The place is very spacious and the ones who frequented the Embassy Super Club would have bitter sweet memories because of certain "events", but they wouldn't mind what has become of it.
Chef Ferns, as he is fondly called by many, but Fern to others, transformed the place into a high end restaurant. He is an expert fusionist, adding some flavors of Europe into our Local Cuisine, but he also has some purely Filipino delights that is presented in a very cosmopolitan way.

*Their version of Kare-Kare. Kare-Kare is a must try if you are visiting the country. It looks like curry, but it tastes like peanut soup. Aracama's version is thick, and like some of my favorite restaurants who serve Kare-Kare, the veggies and the shrimp paste(Bagoong) are set aside. It is very delicious and the presentation is acceptable to Filipinos and foreigners alike,
*The Malunggay Cheese dip. Foreigners and Filipinos love this! Pureed Moringa leaves blended with cheese.
*The Chicken Inasal is a must try. The Chef is from Bacolod and he knows his roots. Chicken Inasal is one of the pride of Ilonggos(People from Iloilo and Bacolod, & others who speak Hiligaynon). If you're allergic to chicken, just take the necessary precautions.
*I love the Chocnut Ice Cream. I churn ice cream, so unless it's a popular commercial kind that I love, I am quite picky when it comes to the "home made" ones. This one passes with flying colors. Chocnut is a peanut and chocolate treat that is well-loved by Filipinos worldwide and the way Chef Fern concocted this is an epicurean delight!
*The Salpicao de la Casa is something worth trying. I am trying to stay away from beef as much as I can, but I haven't given this up. This one is very, very tempting. As the name implies, it is a "house" specialty.
*Lumpia Bangus...I never thought I would love this, but I do. Smoked milk fish in wonton like wrapper has a very interesting taste.
*As much as I love street food, my stomach cannot handle them lately...I think I'm getting old. (LMAO) I'm glad that Aracama offers CLEAN fish balls with sauces that will take you to cloud nine.
*Another viand that I thought I wouldn't like is KANSI. For me, it's better than bulalo and sinigang. Aaaaaaah.
*MY ULTIMATE favorite is the MISO SEABASS...words cannot describe how much I love this!
*The Salads! Healthy and delicious, indeed!
*The desserts are feast to the eyes and are very, very delicious too!
