The Meeting Plate: A place where artsy meets yummy

If you’re in constant search for hidden gems in the Metro, then here’s a wonderful artsy find along the busy avenue of Pasay City. Opened to the public just last November 2015, The Meeting Plate houses framed/canvas art and cool finds which are certified Instagram-worthy. Plus, it’s only in this part of the city where you can dine while your feet rests  on a sewing machine foot pedal that is made into an old-fashioned table. So creatively classic, right?

Art for sale! Can't help but stare at these awesome artworks while eating.

While munching on their specialty burgers or tapa, diners can actually play with the sewing machine pedal without the risk of getting pricked by a needle. Adorable little cacti and potted greens also greet customers by the tabletops.

Aside from the relaxing aura exuded by the small resto, their menu is filled with classic artisanal favorites too. From classic burgers to pasta, hot drinks, frappe, milkshakes, and even ice-cold beer, this Meeting Plate has everything a group of friends would like in every catch-up sesh. It’s not a place to get crazy drunk, though. The Meeting Plate takes pride in its chill ambiance, made for friendly meet-ups.

Meeting Plate's Spicy Beef Tapa (I know the beef looks small, but that is more than enough for one cup of rice. Believe me, I was quite disappointed at first too! Don't judge food by its size.)

When paying them a visit, we recommend that you try their Spicy Beef Tapa served with rice, egg, and iced tea for only P95 if you’re up to solo servings. Go for the Mexican Nachos (P110) or the Chili Cheese Fries (P95) if you want something for sharing.

For drinks, grab a Mango Shake (P65) to beat the heat. If you’re looking for something different, try their Choco Vodka Frappe (P140) for a right amount of oomph in your drink.

Here's the cheesy classic burger served with fries. You can also request for an additional egg or patty.

They don’t have a lot of choices for now, but they have your midnight cravings on their menu: Spicy Chicken Wings (P175), Classic Burger (P135), Breaded Porkchop (P115), and Shoestring Fries (P55) to name a few.

Aside from the Choco Vodka Frappe, they also have Mocha, Mocha Banana, and Caramel flavors.

Mocha Banana Frappe topped with whipped cream, pretzels, a slice of banana, and a choco cookie.

Beside it is an awesome concept store  called Dose, which is filled with things you only see in online shops. After eating, diners can step into a shopping haven in just a few steps (or vice versa). But that’s another story!

The Meeting Plate is located at the second floor of the Seacrest Building at Sen. Gil Puyat Avenue — commonly known as Buendia, corner Roxas Boulevard in Pasay City.

The good news is: They’re open all seven days of the week! However, meetings have to be adjourned on specific hours. Everyone is free to meet and dine in from 11 am to 12 am from Sunday to Thursday, and 11 am to 2 am from Friday to Saturday. Two-thumbs up for everything!
