Just when you think that the Tomas Morato, Quezon City food scene has been saturated, up comes this new restaurant called Twist which brought eager diners a new feast for the eyes and mouth.
It’s hidden in the second floor of the building right beside Il Terrazzo. There’s several other restaurants there, too. We have yet to try the others, but we’ve already developed a soft spot for Twist.
When people ask about the food from Twist, I guess the best description would be fusion comfort food. There’s a mixture of Filipino, Italian, American, and French all over their menu.
Other appetizers which looked good but we didn’t order were the Chorizo Sliders and the Twist Croque Madame.
Hands down our favorite was their 1000 Ways to All-Day Breakfast. It’s served with garlic brown rice and two eggs cooked to your liking, plus your drink of choice – either apple or orange juice, coffee, or tea. Then you could choose three of either USDA Beef Sukiyaki Tapa, Honeycured Porkloin Tocino, Maple Beef Belly Bacon, English Corned Beef, Limepeel Tinapa, Naked Longganiza, or Airdried Seafood Bounty.
We had the bacon, corned beef, and tapa that night. The bacon was crunchy and sweet and oh-so-delicious! The corned beef and tapa were really good too, and despite their HUGE servings, we couldn’t get enough of this.
Dessert is not something to be missed here.
Feel like a kid again with the Famous Twist Cookies with Goat’s Milk. They have Speculoos, Kimchi Nutella, matcha blanco, honey walnut oats, triple xocolat, and lemon peel cheesecake cookies. It’s served hot with the flavors oozing out of the cookies.
Twist Comfort Food + Difference is located at 2/F Pos Building, Tomas Morato Avenue corner Scout Madriñan Street, Tomas Morato, Quezon City.
