Savage in BGC Serves You Fired Up Dishes Straight from the Pit
Born literally out of fire and coal, Savage in Arya Plaza in Bonifacio Global City takes its guests back to how humans first cooked their prized hunts for the day－through an open pit fire.
Operating since April 16, 2018, Savage is Chef Josh Boutwood’s brainchild and his own way of challenging himself to do what no man of his expertise as the corporate chef of The Bistro Group has done before, and that is to go back and embody the primitive way of cooking through an open-fire.
This is where his dishes are primarily grilled by using charcoal and oak sourced all the way from Ukraine.
Together with Chef Josh’ group of passionate staff, the result is made even more phenomenal. The concept is well-reflected on the interiors of the restaurant, with primal apes and greeneries gracing the walls of Savage.
The restaurant also exudes a hip and industrial vibe with black, metal pipes gracing the ceilings, plus a graffiti screaming “Savage” on the restaurant’s far wall.
These elements surprisingly complement with each other and are also seen and tasted through their smoked dishes.
Seafood lovers will come to appreciate Savage with their Barramundi complemented by fresh arugula, preserved lemon, and olives (Php 1,300) to give a tangy flavor to the ensemble. Surely, the contrast between the smoked fish and the lemon zest will satisfy your palates well.
