Tonight, Josh Boutwood’s HELM (@helmmnl
)— a 10-seater, multi-course chef’s counter dinner experience— opens its doors. Located underneath his Savage (which uses elemental cooking techniques like wood and fire), Helm is the opposite; it’s technique-driven, with equipments like a sous-vide machine, PacoJet, and a charcoal grill to name a few. For the next 4 months, Josh will be using predominantly Filipino ingredients— no, the food is not Filipino— but the ingredients are sourced around the country, and you can have them for PHP3,200 for 8 courses + bites + desserts.
In case you’re wondering how Helm is different from Test Kitchen— at the latter, they use what’s available to them; hence the menu changes daily— and in my humble opinion, a little more free-style. Also they will be undergoing renovation soon!
Helm has 2 seatings per night: 6 PM and 8:30 PM, from Tuesday through Saturday. It is located at G/F The Plaza, Arya Residences, Mckinley Parkway, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City, Philippines. Phone +63906 234 1900 for reservations.
Stay tuned for me next post on the dishes at Helm! Xx
