Getting My Grub On at BrewKus: The Bev-wich Shop


A gastronomic tower of Griddlecakes, Crisp Spinach Ravioli, Grilled Vegetable & Mozzarella, Shrimply Loaded sandwich and Wild Mushroom Cream Sauce.  If these menu items don’t get you in the mood for breakfast, you can hold out for brunch at BrewKus, the beverage-sandwich shop. This is one of the breakfast/brunch places in the stretch of Valero,  strategically located at the heart of Makati's central business district.



This high end sandwich shop is known for using top of the line ingredients and they serve delicious food for breakfast or lunch.

Crisp Mushroom Ravioli (P180)
Let's start with the finger bites or appetizers, the Crisp Mushroom Ravioli. Now this.. THIS is amazing! It's a  scrumptious mix of diced shitake mushrooms and cream cheese sandwiched in between golden crisp wanton wrappers that are deep fried to perfection.


Still has a crispy crust till the last bit, it's super tender, and they make a great rustic tomato sauce to go over the top. It's a must try!!!

Griddlecakes!
They also have yummy, fluffy griddlecakes, 3 stacks drizzled with chocolate with hashbrowns and sunny side up egg. As you can see, the portions are massive and it takes up an entire plate. Definitely good for sharing and these are large portions that'll surely leave you stuffed and satisfied. :)

The Grilled Vegetable & Mozzarella (P250)

The Grilled Vegetable & Mozzarella is a medley of pesto-based shitake mushrooms, eggplant, zucchini, ripe tomatoes, grilled to tender perfection topped with a generous amount of mozzarella cheese.

Shrimply Loaded (P250)
Shrimply Loaded sandwich  is a succulent mixture of sautéed shrimps, garlic, infused with rich blend of asparagus in cream sauce cream and parmesan cheese.

Wild Mushroom Cream Sauce (P250) 
My personal favorite is the wild mushroom pasta... diced shitake and button mushroom in a cream-based sauce made even better with slices of proschiutto and drizzled with premium truffle oil. Only one word describes it... AWESOME.

You can pair all of these tasty dishes with the different blends of coffees, milk teas, and fruit teas available at BrewKus. Their coffee prices start at P80, teas at P70.  Served ice cold. :)

Caramel Latte
Wintermelon milk tea. Choose your tea latte sweetness level and add-ons like pearl, nata de coco or coffee jelly.

Lychee True Teas, freshly brewed tea infused with the sweetness  of fruit.



I was triply blessed to meet the lovely chef Shiela who also had a short yet interesting cooking demo of  how to make our own beer batter. The demo and  presentation of the food really spoke to me in regards to the extent of care Chef Sheila take.




I am very fussy on my fish, but this one had a beautiful fluffy and crispy batter on it, and when I cut into it, the fish inside was flaky, not dry and it's super tender. Loved it!




The ambiance is pretty laid back and the baristas were amazing.  
Lots of seating & spacious enough for group meetings. It has a homey, comfy kinda atmosphere. Also, the staff are very friendly, attentive but non-intrusive.


Bottom line:

This is a casual breakfast place where you can go for a decent meal with friends or family. Period.  And it delivers. Prolly one of the best breakfast/brunch spots in the city!

I'd definitely return.
