La Cabrera, a famous and well-lauded steakhouse from Argentina, opens its first Philippine branch in Makati.
Located at 6750 in Makati, La Cabrera Manila is the newest steak place in the block. The original La Cabrera opened its first restaurant in Argentina in 2002, followed by two more branches in the country.
With a tagline 'Uno de los mejores secretos guardados en Palermo' ('One of the best kept secrets in Palermo'), La Cabrera reveals to the Manila market its signature Buenos Aires specialty: succulent steaks, paired with as much complimentary mini-sides as you wish.

Aside from the smorgasbord of hot and cold side dishes which are brought to your table using a tray lined with ramekins, the restaurant also serves complimentary bread and spreads before your starters and mains arrive--making La Cabrera the new steakhouse to watch out for that is definitely great value for money. Choices for Entradas (Starters) are a handful, such as Empanada de Carne (P250), Morcilla Criolla (P490), and the popular Provoleta (P890, good for 4), which is grilled Provolone cheese that is crisp outside and warm and gooey inside.
The highlight of the menu is of course, the Platos Principales (Entrees) of hearty, meaty protein. All dishes are good for sharing, so best to visit La Cabrera as a big group of friends or family to try out as much types of steaks and sides.
There are four steaks to choose from: Ojo de Bife (USDA Prime Rib Eye Steak) good for two (P2,680 - 500g), the best-selling Asado del Centro (USDA Prime Short Ribs) good for two (P1,580 - 500g), Bife de Chorizo (USDA Prime Striploin Steak) good for two (P1,880 - 500g) and good for three (P2,980 - 800g). For the 800g steak, the menu notes that their Bife de Chorizo will take a little longer to cook medium rare (25 minutes).
As steaks and wine go excellent together, La Cabrera makes available their wine selection from the LAGARDE vineyard, which is a vineyard by the Andes Mountains in Argentina. Should you wish to skip the steaks, they have a selection of grilled chicken dishes, pastas, and salads.
End your feast with Argentinian Postres (Desserts) paired with LAMILL Coffees and Teas. Their most popular dessert is the Rogel de Dulce de Leche (P390), an Argentinian dessert made from layers of crispy biscuit flakes slathered with Argentine dulce de leche, then topped with merengue. Their Chocotorta (P390) presents to the local market a classic birthday dessert from Argentina--a chocolate cookie dulce de leche torte.
La Cabrera Manila is open for lunch (11:30am-2:30pm) and dinner (6pm-11pm) at the ground floor of 6570 in Ayala Avenue, Makati. Follow La Cabrera Manila on Instagram (@lacabrera_mnl).
