Last Saturday I was lucky to be invited for a Bloggers event at Salamangka in Eastwood . Prior to my event, I already heard about Salamangka from a DJ friend and he recommended this place to me . So when I found out that there will be a Foodie Invite here , I immediately accept the invitation.
Salamangka aims to be your third place meaning whether you are craving for morning Americano, a satisfying lunch , a work friendly environment for your afternoon team meeting, a happy hour craft beer, a tasty dinner or late night cocktails .
Salamangka is the 121 group’s latest project, bridging specialty grade coffee, homemade cocktail infusions and Engkanto craft beer on top .
The concept of Salamangka is inspired by Filipino mythological folklore while its menu incorporates casual coffee food with Pinoy twists . Food specialties included corned beef mac and cheese, itlog na Maalat Wings and TA-PI-LOG which stands for (Tapa, Pita and itlog) among others , while specialty coffee highlights include single origin pour overs , coconut and Choc Nut Lattes and the Kapeko 3-in-1 , a perfect gateway specialty coffee drink for customers whose palates favor 3 in 1 coffee. House spirit infusions pair gin, vodka , tequila and rum with ingredients like dried mangoes , oranges and even Thai chilli! Finally , their craft beer selection is by Engkanto beer , the finest microbrewer in the country . Regardless of what you ordered, you are sure to experience and TASTE MAGIC of Salamangka.
If you’ll ask WHY Salamangka ? Because Salamangka in Tagalog term is Magic . They want their customers to experience magic through their products and service and escape reality for a quick bit, unwinding with their beverage of choice and good company.
We started with specialty coffee .
I personally choose their Chocnut Latte cold drink from their Salamangka Signature Specialty Coffee . I am a fan of Chocnut when I was still a kid that’s why I chose and like this Drink after trying it . Price is 185 pesos . Other Sallamangka Signatures are :
☕️Bulletproof Coffee 180 pesos
☕️Coconut Latte 185 pesos
☕️Kapeko 3 in 1 150 pesos
Then for the Pika Pika (Nom-Noms) I tried the Itlog na Maalat Wings for around 340 pesos . Salted egg chicken wings served with Piknk. I enjoyed this too as I loved to eat itlog na maalat.
All Day Kanin At Ulam was served too. Tinapa for 189 pesos plus the meal I enjoyed most ,Sinigang sa Manggang Hilaw. This is one of a kind. Haven’t tried anything like this , homemade sinigang transformed from liquid to solid with a sour green mango twist . Price is 279 pesos only. I highly recommend this dish .
One of their specialty here at Salamangka is that they offer Vegan Kanto.
✔️ Vegan nachos – toasted pita chips with ground tofu ,yummza pesto Hummus , lemon and oil . Perfect for those watching what they eat . Add 20 pesos for cheese . Price is 199 pesos .
✔️Pita At Hummus Sampler- Original, Pesto , sundried tomatoes ,balsamic vinegar,and tandoori for 399 pesos
✔️Pita At Hummus- one yummza hummus choice paired with toasted pita bread for 280 pesos .
Then loved their creamy pasta too!
From food to drinks to service and most especially I like the ambience of Salamangka . The murals are made by talented Filipino artists.
Come and visit Salamangka day and night from 7am to 3am at Eastwood Citywalk.
Be Enchanted and Bewitched!
