Providore, your newest CHIC hangout

If you are into chick flicks, I’m pretty sure you have seen one of those coffee shops or chic restaurants that the female lead and her friends go to so they can have coffee or eat (most of the time though they just lament about their love life and look fabulous.) I know that you’ve often wondered where in Manila you can find the same place coz face it, to have the same feels, you’d need to go to Tagaytay or Antipolo and sometimes, you just want to stay in the city and not drive for hours. Fret no more because Raintree Group of Restaurants has heard you and is offering their newest baby Providore to be your go to place for coffee talks and girls night out.


Providore is located at the Ground Floor of SM Aura, right beside CIBO and Starbucks. You can’t possibly miss it because it is right near the entrance and the bakery and smell of coffee will lead you right to it if the décor is not enough to entice you to come right in. Providore has 3 sections to fit all your needs.

The first section has a café feel that will make you think you are in another country, sipping latte that is Instagram worthy while munching on pastries that is home made and baked fresh. The chocolate croissant is simply to die for and the revel bar is just UMMMMMMM MMMMMM! That was all I could say after taking a bite haha.

Now the second section is the restaurant proper. This can easily sit around 40 to 50 pax and it’s bright and sunny. It’s the kind of place that just instantly lifts your spirit. Along with their comfort food such as the Salmon Belly Guava Sinigang which will make you say “sabaw palang, solb ka na,” Providore can surely heal whatever heartache you have with their food.

We tried out the Zucchini Pecorino Fries which is malagos pecorino which you can dip in buttermilk ranch and lemon sauce. If you are tired of the same old fries, this is an awesome alternative.

Another must order at Providore is the Chicken Wings. See, if you order the 6 pc wings at Providore, you are actually helping #EndHunger because Raintree Restaurants support the #RestaurantsAgainstHungerPH Campaign by donating a portion of its sale for every order of this dish. Not only that but the chicken wing s are actually really good. You get to enjoy awesome food while doing your part in helping to end hunger.

The Crispy Seafood Mayo Roll is bound to be a hit with seafood lovers because it has fresh lemon and dill, romaine lettuce, remoulade sauce on a buttered brioche roll served with freshly fried chips. It’s very filling so feel free to share this with a friend unless you are really hungry.

Now if you are really hungry, I suggest the Seafood and Rice Skillet. Notice a trend? Yes, I love seafood! So going back, this skillet has fresh prawn, fish, and squid in garlic, parsley, and white wine butter special sauce. It is also served with creamy spinach pilaf. This just means that is is SUPER YUMMY. If I wasn’t trying to cut down on food intake, I would have eaten the whole thing all by myself.

If you are already full, you can head over to the 3rdsection of Providore which they fondly call The Backyard. This is where you can dine al fresco or have breakfast at 8am in the morning or have a nightcap even at 130am because Providore’s Backyard can cater to your whim from 8am to 2am. You can enjoy a cup of coffee while eating this Coconut Cream Tres Leches . This dessert looks dainty but is packed with macapuno and topped with dessicated coconut, served under a mountain of tres leches cream.


If you are after comfort food, great ambiance, and a not so crazy spending for good food, Providore is the answer to your prayers. It's hip, it's chic, and it is definitely a must for any woman who fancies herself like any lead in a a chick flick.

PS. Raintree Group of Restaurants will be offering this super cute burger aptly called The Love Burger in all of it's restaurants such as Terraz, Saboten, Providore, Chelsea, Kabila, Simple Lang, and M Cafe. This will be available the whole month of February and what's good about this is that though it looks romantically cheesy, the taste is very good. The beef, eventhough it is quite thick, is actually tasty and not an overkill. The bread used is made at Providore and so you are guaranteed of it's freshness.

  1. How perfect, since I am typing this while in an Uber on the way to Providore! Godsend! I have some ideas on what to order now, and I have to say the seafood roll and salmon sinigang look like they are my jam!

  2. Hey, it's a nice place to have casual talks. I like the looks of the chicken wings. Even if my pet peeve is how the restaurants now are splitting a piece of chicken wings to count it as 2 pieces, still, it looks so yummy. Chicken is one meat I eat virtually daily.

  6. That's a perfect combination to satiate your appetite and bond with your girlfriends. The place looks cool and wide enough to handle a restaurant and coffee shop in one. My first time to see the love burger, perfect timing for the Feb-ibig month. :) Povidore totally made an effort my customizing their bread to a heart-shaped one. :)

  7. I love the restaurant + cafe in one concept. Their food looks delectable too. What I really love the most about Providore is that they contribute and support the cause to #EndHunger. Not every restaurant do that and it's exceptional that they go out of their way to help.

  8. WOW! The food looks absolutely delicious. It looks a bit pricey though, but I guess, the offered variety and quality justifies the price. I am sure that something like Provider would be successful in my hometown in Stuttgart, too.

  9. This restaurant looks delicious! I love chicken wings and I especially love that the money would go to charity. The pecorino fries seem interesting too. I would like to go here someday.

  10. This is a great place where you can dine and just chill. By the looks of it, I feel that they have delicious breads. Seeing that twist choco reminds me of what I ate from Cafe France. If Providore would choose it's next branch, I hope they venture here in the province.

  11. I have to admit, while reading this post's introduction about Providore, I was thinking about Samantha, Carrie, Charlotte and Miranda from Sex and the City! Hahaha! I've never been to SM Aura but at least when I go there I already have an idea where to dine and most especially what to order! I am a huge fan of buffalo wings so there's no question that I'll get that haha. The Seafood and Rice Skillet looks enticing so obviously that'll go in my list too!

  13. A nice cosy dining place to hang out with friends and family. Am a chicken wings lover, so really wish I can try it myself one day. The fries with buttermilk dip also tempting to me too. A great effort for charity too! Cheers, SiennyLovesDrawing
