From its origin selling flat bread in food parks, Flat Bread is now a restaurant that’s becoming known for its hearty and tasty comfort food that everyone loves.
Housed in a charming bungalow along Sparrow St. in Marikina City, Flat Bread used to serve its famous variety of flat bread in food parks including Crave Park along Gil Fernando Ave. also in Marikina. In May last year, the owners decided to set up a restaurant so it could offer more dishes other than flat bread and its varieties.
“Since flat bread is a snack item, we incorporated rice meals in our menu. We have everyone’s favorite, the hickory barbecue ribs, beef pot roast. We have this now becoming famous crispy pork fries. It’s very thin strips of pork served with our own gravy. Everybody likes it and it’s priced only at P200,” says Fiona Flores, one of the five owners of the newest dining place in Marikina.
Of course, the flat bread remains the star on the menu -- longanisa (flat bread, garlic longganisa and salted egg dressing), pepperoni (flat bread, pepperoni and cheese blends), Korean beef and kimchi (flat bread, beef bulgogi, cream and cheese, kimchi and cheese blends), Spanish callos (flat bread, callos dip or rice), cheese steaks and onions (flat bread, cheese blends, beef steak and caramelized onions) and chili cheese dog (flat bread, cheese blends, chili con carne and American hotdog).
Aside from the flat bread, the restaurant offers a whole gamut of food: Soups, salad, main course or the main meal, desserts, drinks. It also serves all-day breakfasts such as its homemade chunky corned beef (not from the can found in supermarkets), gourmet tuyo, crunchy bacon silog, Cabanatuan longganisa, among others.
Flat Bread also sells its housemade tuyo (dried fish) in a bottle. She recommends tossing it with freshly-cooked past and voila! A meal.
For desserts, you can’t go wrong with its own version of tres leches, a sponge cake soaked in three different kinds of milk – fresh milk, all-purpose cream and condensed milk – thus the name. The longer it is soaked in the milk, the better it tastes, she says.
The tres leches, served with rich whipped cream, is its best seller.
Aside from tres leches, which we tried and enjoyed along with freshly-brewed Kalinga coffee, Flat Bread also offers warm chocolate cookie and milk, red velvet crinkles and milk, very moist chocolate cake and crème brulee cheese cake to finish a meal.
