There’s a new joint in town for cookers and eaters!
Foodies from the south now have another option in hunting for ingredients for their special dishes by way of Brera Delicatessen in Molito, Alabang.
Meats, cheeses, and other imported goods are readily available at even more affordable prices. This makes the home chef mom in me VERY happy.
Last month, my friend Veron, invited me to the blessing of Brera’s fourth and newest location here in Alabang. I made it a point to visit during the launch, even if I was getting ready to leave the morning after. I knew there would be lots for me to see because of what my friend Veron had shared.
Brera isn’t just your average delicatessen. It reminds me of the places back home that I would visit every Saturday while Nino and I were living in Westbury. I had my butcher, my baker, and my candlestick maker.
Ok, maybe not the candlestick maker, but you get the idea right?
It’s the kind of delicatessen where you can get your meats and cheeses for the week, and maybe even a little something more. From the jared imported sauces and truffle pastes, to the pastas and even freshly baked goods prepared every day.
But here’s the thing. You can sit down, have a steak, a burger, and even a glass of wine. There are tables for you to enjoy a simple meal (with quality ingredients) prepared to your liking, when you order. The menu is pretty extensive for a deli because it includes appetizers, pasta, pizza, sandwiches, sausages, and Australian steaks and chops.
So, when Nino and I would like to enjoy a nice steak, with no fuss, and a good glass of wine, all we have to do is visit Brera. The kids can run around outside in Molito, they can come back and check in, and we can talk over a quiet dinner if we leave them at home.
Brera also makes party prep even easier too. I noticed that they can create customized platters for gatherings large and small at home. This would be perfect to bring to someone’s house for a pot luck or even if you were just having some friends over for drinks and apps.
While I was chatting with owner/partner, Paolo, he shared some of the plans they have for the outdoor area of the shop. He envisions the outer corner of the deli to have an out door bar, where patrons can enjoy a night cap and a selection of tapas. The image that came into my head as he was explaining his vision was that of the tapas bars in Spain that I have heard so much about.
How cool would that be?
Date night here we come!
