MANILA – After 25 years in the Philippines, TGI Fridays is finally serving breakfast.
But there’s a catch – only one branch is currently offering morning meals. And that is the one located at Bonifacio High Street (BHS) in Taguig City.
From 7 a.m. to 10 a.m., customers at the TGI Fridays BHS branch can enjoy hearty eats such as Country Chicken and Waffle, Breakfast of Champs (pecan pancakes with two eggs, bacon, and Andouille sausage), Better Together (grilled three-cheese sandwich and pumpkin soup combo), and Smoked Bacon Florentine in a brioche bun.
There are also savory Filipino favorites such as beef tapa, tocino, smoked bangus, longganisa hamonado, and adobo, each served with egg and garlic rice.
Another must-try is the Arroz Caldo for the Soul, or porridge topped with mushroom and crispy pork liempo.
Health-conscious diners, meanwhile, can try the breakfast salads (Kale and Quinoa or Fresh Morning Salad), omelettes, yogurt bowls, and seasonal fruits platter.
The Booster Bowl provides an interesting mix of textures and flavors – granola with honey is topped with savory bacon, egg, and kale.
TGI Fridays BHS branch has a separate drinks menu for breakfast, consisting of hot and cold coffee and chocolate, lemonade, juice, and tea.
The Bistro Group, which manages TGI Fridays in the country, said it wants to tap into the growing market of breakfast consumers particularly in the Bonifacio Global City area, which has plenty of office and recreational spaces.
The company is also considering the idea of serving breakfast at its TGI Fridays branch in Nuvali, Laguna, a popular destination for cyclists and other athletes.
