For the next few weeks, The Moment Group’s central kitchen has transformed The Mess Hall into a pop-up clubhouse. From now through December 29, the momentary clubhouse will offer 40 new dishes with sit-down service on weekdays.

The Mess Hall is known the test den for the group’s latest creations.

The special a la carte menu features classics such as Caesar salad, sizzling gambas, beef Bolognese, and seared hanger steak with mashed potatoes—all delectable in their own way.

The Clubhouse, where no club membership is required, is also adding more hours to the usual Mess Hall schedule. And it will be open for business on two Sundays,  December 10 and 17. Its casual Sunday fare will have roast beef carving stations, a Mongolian bowl buffet, and this season's favorite—a bibingka and puto bumbong station. Once January comes round, the Mess Hall will revert to its original offerings.

Rumor has it this Clubhouse pop-up has a bigger purpose than merely serving holiday lunches. We hear it's being used to test the waters for a bigger project next year. Perhaps the best reason to pay a visit to this limited pop-up is to get a taste of what could possibly be the staple menu at a certain members-only club, frequented by residents of Makati and a favorite hangout among the country's upper class. We’re not at a liberty to drop names yet but we’re hoping that The Mess Hall retains club specialties such as its signature burger, army navy sandwich, and chicken a la kiev.
