There is no denying that timing is essential, and we believe that our timing was perfect when we dropped by at the latest dining destination in the Metro. Tempus Dining is a gorgeous restaurant at the heart of Mandaluyong and they are ready to take your breath away.

That said, let’s not waste your time and let us walk you through some of Tempus Dining’s must-try dishes, starting with their appetizers. Their Tuna Nicoise Salad (Php 480) which is a generous plate of organic greens, seared yellowfin tuna, egg, kalamata olives, and tomato petals; their Chicken Liver Pate (Php 420) which is a serving of crisp crostini and oh-so-delicious port wine jelly; as well as their Chilean Mussels (Php 730) which is a hearty bowl of fresh mussels with butter, garlic, parsley, and bread will have you hooked in a snap, but don’t you worry because this tasty journey has just begun!
If you want another homey dish to dig into, Tempus Dining’s Forrest Mushroom Soup (Php 360) is a perfect choice! This is a bowl of rich and flavorful soup with field mushrooms, cream, thyme, and truffle oil. However, if you want something more of an easy eat, we suggest going for their Quesadilla (Php 355) which is loaded with grilled chicken, caponata, and fontina cheese; or their Jamon Pizza (Php 735) which is delectably topped with blue cheese, parmesan, and mozarella. Yummy!
Looking for something that is more of a munch-a-thon? Look no further because Tempus Dining has Crumbled Chicken Breast (Php 395) and it’s everything you want! Strips of chicken breast that are deep fried until they are crispy and golden brown, plus potato and kamote fries on the side? This is really it!
After having a few finger food, you might want to go for something heavier at Tempus Dining. With that, make sure to check out their Mains selection because we are sure you are going to find something you are either craving for or will be drooling over such as their Callos (Php 550) which is a tasty plate of slow-cooked ox tripe, chickpeas, spicy chorizo, alongside jasmine rice; and their Pressed Pork Belly (Php 910) which comes with white bean puree, spinach and brandy prunes. Downright appetizing, indeed!
Of course, Tempus Dining also has mouthwatering meat-starred dishes that you should not miss out on!
