ROOFTOP restaurants don’t always have to push the clouds to offer an atmospheric and memorable dining experience. As long as they’re elevated far enough away from the din and humidity of the streets, designed with flair, and operated with care, then they will, figuratively speaking, always come out on top.
Highlights of the globetrotting a la carte menu include the tender roast Rack of lamb (B550), which takes its cue from Ireland and comes with baked potatoes and roasted veggies (very hearty); Fish & Chips (B250), a classic British dish, in this case featuring wonderfully light and crispy batter that remains that way for the entire meal (no sogginess!); and the Italian-inspired Torino (B239), a rectangular pizza topped with ham, mushroom, mozzarella cheese and chilli, served piping hot straight from the oven.
Prefer to share your food? A Frog’s Tree Tapas deal offers a choice of three tapas for B480 and five for B650, and includes tasty bite-sized creations such as Smoked duck spring rolls (B180), Salmon bites with spicy dips (B200) and Wild frog’s legs tempura “Thai” style (B200).
A good selection of beers, wines and spirits are on offer, and there are plenty of unique boozy concoctions for cocktail fans to slurp on, including signature mixes such as Mango mojito (mixed rums, mango, mint and lime. B250), and Fast frog (a fruity concoction blending vodka, Malibu, pineapple juice and grenadine syrup. B250).
Daily Happy Hours from 6pm-9pm offer selected drinks at buy-one-get-one free; and the same deal applies to selected wines on Tuesday Wine Nights from 6pm onwards. Every Friday night, Ladies’ Night offers 50 percent discount off all drinks for the girls.
The restaurant’s best deal, though, is its Free-Flow Promotion. Held twice daily, once from 11am-3pm, and again from 9pm-midnight, this features unlimited pourings of local beers, cocktails and liquors – all at just B999 per person. A bargain.
