Touches of color on Sabao's native-inspired walls, with a contrasting whimsical ceiling to boot.
We got to try out newly-opened Sabao Filipino Soup Bar last week. A sister restaurant of next-door neighbor Bait''s Seafood Kitchen, Sabao has set its sights on Filipino cuisine, particularly on traditional soup-based dishes, or sabaw in Filipino.
Now how was it? Let me answer that.
Interiors and ambiance
As with Bait's and practically all other establishments on the ground floor of Signa Designer Residences, this restaurant has a really high ceiling and with half of its perimeter surrounded by glass panels that afford it an airy and less restrictive feel.
Sabao also has a nice, uneven accent wall that takes inspiration from traditional Filipino materials like sawali (interwoven bamboo splits) and banig (woven mat). They didn't necessarily employ such materials, though, but instead used other implements to afford the same effect, or at least some semblance to it. The inclusion of light boxes likewise adds to the overall updated look.
