Outre Manila in Circuit Makati
Outré is a French word for “unusual” or “startling”. When we discovered Outre Manila in Circuit Makati last month, I realized that the name really fits the place since their hand-crafted liquid nitrogen gelato is really bizarre!
I briefly mentioned discovering Outré Manila last time in my 25 and no turning back post.We didn’t have much pictures back then and we didn’t stay for long, so I told myself I had to go back.
Outré Manila prides themselves in their hand-crafted liquid nitrogen gelato. This was the first time I experienced this, so this what they do:
- They mix the recipe in liquid form (depending on your order).
- They add liquid nitrogen bit by bit to “freeze” the cream.
- The liquid nitrogen starts to smoke! The gelato hardens as more liquid nitrogen is added.
- Lastly, they transfer your ice cream to a cup, where they add finishing touches.
We didn’t know about liquid nitrogen ice cream back then, so we were really surprised when it started smoking! It was really cool watching them make nitrogen ice cream. It was very “Outré” of this world! (I cracked the same joke to my brother but he just shrugged).
The little one got a bit scared with the smoke. He squirms away when it nears him, but he comes closer when the smoke disappears.
If you’re a fan of chocolate, you would really love Milo Dinosaur!
The price of each Outré gelato is Php 160. It’s a bit expensive for a gelato, but the serving is very “siksik” (packed) that my mom and I had to share it.
One thing I really admire in the place is their wall art.
And this doodle wall is also something – perfect for taking the selfies!
The little one enjoyed roaming around. There were normal sized chairs, and then there were ottoman square ones.
Outré Manila also serves other dishes such as sangers, pastas, salads, etc.
I haven’t had a chance to try them yet, but I’ve read good reviews from other sites. Their gelato is really good so I’m looking forward to trying their other dishes out!
What I liked
- Liquid nitrogen ice cream experience
- Milo Dinosaur was a good choice for a gelato
- Very cool ambiance!
Am I eating here again? YES!
I enjoyed hanging out with my mom in Outré Manila. I’m looking forward to going back soon!
