Borough at The Podium
My sister and I had a leisurely lunch at Borough last Saturday. Borough is one of the newest and most interesting places to visit at The Podium.
We started off with a bowl of Tomato Soup (P120, pictured above). It was hearty and chunky, made of real fresh tangy yet sweet tomatoes then topped with basil chiffonade. The server also ground some fresh pepper to top it with. Delicious!
Then we ordered Homemade Pumpkin Ravioli (P250, pictured above). The pasta was freshly made, I saw them being rolled out, cut, and then stuffed with pumpkin paste. It's sauteed in brown butter then topped with walnuts, cranberries, and basil puree. It was very good. The pasta was perfectly al dente -- firm and chewy at the same time. The pumpkin and roasted garlic filling was tasty without being overpowering. We both loved it.
For dessert, we had Mom's Milk and Cookies (P125, pictured above). A metal pail containing a bottle of chilled milk and a plate full of cookies arrived.
- The Elvis (P170) - Deep fried peanut butter and banana sandwich served with coconut dulce de leche and sour cream.
- Chocolate Chicken Wings (P280) - Spicy buffalo wings cooked in chocolate and cinnamon then served with steamed string beans.
