A Molecular Cuisine at THE GOOSE STATION

The Goose Station is one of the best fine-dining restaurants in Metro Manila today.  It was opened 2 years ago at Fort Bonifacio. Owned, operated and conceived by one of the founders of Global Academy Roberto Pengson and his wife Sunshine Puey Pengson. Roberto ( or Rob ) Pengson trained at California Culinary Academy and used to host the culinary show Chef to Go. The Goose Station was built around the concept of the degustation or a tasting  menu... the staff of the Goose Station is comprised of his top students... The dining area is rather small and intimate.....which can sit only 25 persons.... I would advise you to call and reserve if you are planning to eat at The Goose Station..... it is a great venue for special occasions or one of those romantic evenings.

At The Goose Station their menu changes every three months. There is an ala-carte menu, You can either choose the four course Express Menu ( PHP 1,500.00 to PHP 1,800.00 ) or their Signature Menu ( PHP 2,500.00 ), a ten course menu that combines a sampling of their current chef’s recommendations.


" It refers to experimental restaurant cooking driven by the desire of modern cooks to explore the world's wide variety of ingredients, tools and techniques. " In other words --- Molecular gastronomy or Molecular cuisine is a modern way of cooking in which chefs explore new culinary possibilities in the kitchen  concocting surprise after surprise for their diners.

My first time to sample the dishes at The Goose Station was almost 3 weeks ago, when Vivian, a good friend of mine invited me for lunch... I simply loved the food... and planned to go back there and bring my family for a degustacion dinner or rather  a molecular cuisine experience..
