We were all hungry & tired after a whole afternoon of shopping at Forever 21 SM Aura yesterday. We practically closed the store ourselves! The mall isn’t 100% functioning yet, no restos (or at least the ones we liked), so Judith suggested Aracama at The Fort. She’s “makati girl” so I really trust her judgement, especially when it comes to food & dining. I was very happy to try a new place. As much as possible, I don’t repeat restaurants so I get to give you, my dear readers, new materials to read! ;))

The curtain hides the stairs on the left going to the party place upstairs.
The dining room downstairs is cozy & relaxed. I’m glad we ate downstairs.
We were all so tired already that we just wanted a quiet, relaxed dinner.
Although you could hear some “boom-boom” going on from upstairs. :)

I learned that Aracama is actually a bar. Or the upstairs part at least. I was surprised to see a long unoccupied table waiting for us with several more empty tables beside it, so I was thinking maybe it wasn’t such a popular place after all. Boy was I wrong. Para palang bampira mga taong pumupunta sa aracama. Pagkagat ng dilim, that’s when they go! :P Midway into our meal at the ground floor at around 11 PM, people started lining up outside, waiting to be seated. I really am not a party girl haha.  I don’t know these things! :P

The food took a while to be served. Only 2 servers were allotted downstairs & we were a big group. But the food made up for the somewhat long wait. Aracama is more of a Filipino comfort food resto, serving gising gising, crispy pata, binagoongang baboy and the like.
