Olive Tree Kitchen & Bar

I love date nights with Kap as much as I love date days with my girls, and our family dates. But date nights with Kap, I get to be The Girl, you know what I mean? I’m not (The Bull -inside foodie joke!) The Mom, so I can relax & let my hair loose, not worry about anything because I’m with my knight in shining armor. I can be silly, and giddy, and all girly & flirty! ;)) It’s also fun to pretend we’re going on our first date instead of our 987654321th! :P

And now that I’ve lost a little weight, I also get to dress up too! All the clothes that I’ve pushed to the back of my closest na inaamag na, I am able to unearth & wear again! Like this Tommy Hilfiger denim jacket. And I mention the brand just so you know how old it is.. nung uso pa ang TH! Lels.

Before I started my Paleo Manila diet, my arm wouldn’t even go through the sleeves. And now, it still won’t close but at least I can start wearing it again especially in this cool “ber” weather. I’m SO happy! <3 Black dress my Forever 21 Plus Size, sandals from my Lovey’s closet. Accessories gifted by my kids.

RICHIE invited Kap & I to the anniversary celebration of OLIVE TREE KITCHEN & BAR at The Fort. Funny how we’ve never set foot inside when it’s just beside Friday’s. How can I not have seen it with the plenty of times we’ve passed this way?

Maybe because Olive Tree Kitchen & Bar seems imposing from the outside AND the inside, what with the antipasti bar & fine dining concept. But the good news is, with its one year anniversary, Olive Tree Kitchen & Bar has unveiled an entirely different range of continental contemporary dishes. At first glance, each beautifully plated dish may appear intimidating, but you’ll always find that at the heart of each offering is something familiar -just presented differently. A bite shows you don’t need to be afraid of experimentation. All their impeccably plated dishes, as you will see below, are prepared with an intimate understanding of flavor and the deepest respect for ingredients.

The corner facade may seem too rich & imposing, but the warmth lies in the food & the service.

The interiors is bathed in warm & relaxing tones & hues. Suddenly, you’ll feel it wasn’t as imposing as you originally thought it to be.
