Golden Estero (Makati): Dampa-Style Asian Kitchen Done Right

Do you love fresh seafood cooked upon order? No need to go all the way to Dampa and waste gas, time and money in heavy traffic. We found this nifty dampastyle restaurant on the 2nd floor of the hip Arkipelago, a food, art, and retail concept compound in Bagtikan Street of San Antonio Makati. Golden Estero guarantees to satisfy your seafood cravings with generous family style serving and hefty value for money.

Golden Estero embraces an ‘Open Kitchen’ concept for full transparency and as a stage to view the flames, steam, and clattering in the kitchen as part of the whole dining experience.

 

OUR FAVORITES:

HK Style Fried Chicken

Fat Girls Day Out- Golden Estero

Crispy amber colored chicken skin on the tender meat, the flavors of soy, sugar and rice vinegar evident in each bite. The harmony of the ingredients presented in a no-frills manner.

 

Salted Egg Crabs

Fat Girls Day Out- Golden Estero

Pick your choice of seafood in their aquariums and choose a sauce. Deep fried fresh crabs topped with the creamy golden salted egg sauce.

Pork Leg Bihon

Fat Girls Day Out- Golden Estero

Chunks of stewed pork legs on a bed of glass noodles. Each bite is full of the rich flavors of pork and pancit sauce.

Taiwanese Pork Chops

Fat Girls Day Out- Golden Estero

Generous slices of pork chops deep fried to make a crisp exterior. Each bite is crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Reminiscent of our recent Taiwan trip.

Buchi

Fat Girls Day Out- Golden Estero

Light crunch when we bit into it, chewy and just the right sweetness in its filling. This is probably one of the best Buchi we’ve tasted this year.

We love how everything was served fresh and piping hot. Golden Estero’s price point is reasonable and definitely can cater to different market segments. In addition, the Arkipelago compound is a good location coming from a niche neighborhood in Makati.

If you’re tired already of weaving thru the traffic and chaos-centric of competing restaurants of Macapagal Dampa Area, then Golden Estero is a good alternative or rather a perfect go-to-place for you.
