Thank you so much for dropping by. :) Ate deemed yesterday a pretty useless day in school. Just P.E. & some minor subjects, so of course being the kunsintidora mum that I am, we played hookie on a school day & decided to go on an adventure! Hoorah for ANDERSON!! <3 I wish the 2 kids would also play hookie but they are just sooooo serious with school-that’s a good thing though, right? ;P Bad mommy!
Of course, Topshop’s MEGA SALE didn’t have anything to do with her desire to skip school! Oh no, not my shopaholic daughter! ;)

Success! <3 My babylove liked ALL my pasalubong, Yay! Topshop dress, 2k discounted price, plus a “take-one!”. Such a steal, right? m/
I decided to putSPECTRUM at the Fairmonton hold until the rest of the fambam are available to share the new experience with us. Somebody’s birthday is coming up, after all. *insert pant mode here! ;)
So, armed with my precious TOP 115 BOOK, ate & I poured through every single page until finally coming to agreement that we should definitely give BISTRO FILIPINO by Chef Laudico a visit. (And the best thing is, since the dishes are filipino fusion, the 2 younger kids wouldn’t feel bad because they’re not into fine dining, lalo na fusions haha.) And I’m just so glad that we did. It was truly a gastronomic experience ate & I shall never forget! m/

Before going there, ate & I agreed that we will both try the Ala Carte All You Can which is divided into 2 categories. (For a complete list of their menu, CLICK HERE)
At first, I wanted to try the one that included Wagyu & Prawns at 1,288+ php. But after carefully browsing through the menu & discussing the difference with our server, I saw that these were only 2 dishes compared to everything else you can sample on their menu. So for your first time at the Bistro, I would strongly recommend that you get the 788+ php set & get the more expensive option the next time you go. When you’ve more or less sampled everything else! :)
I can say with glee that we made the right choice. You can NEVER sample everything on your first go! @_@ There was simply too much wonderful dishes to try. And that’s saying a lot coz you know I’m such a bottomless pit. LELs!
Here are the pictures from our lunch date.. I’m drooling as I upload! I promise, you will too. Don’t hate me. ;P Be prepared ha, I have A LOT of photos on this post! :)
The ones that do not have pictures are the food we’ll be going back for. Too much food, so little tummy space. :)
Their very own version of hot pandesal. Freshly baked.
Their best selling Lumpia, smoked etag pork, ubod, and spicy vinegar granite
Fresh fish or seafood, calamansi emulsion, roasted capsicum sauce
Silken Tokwa’t Baboy
Roast Pork Belly, Silken Crispy Tofu, Grilled Bell Peppers & Onions on Pinakurat Soy Glaze
My gorgeous lunch date! <3
We only got to try 1 soup. Everything was bursting with such flavors that we were afraid our taste buds would be overwhelmed & ruin the other dishes for us. We’ll certainly go back to try the rest!!! <3
Hot and Cold Sinigang
Cold tamarind gel, hot coconut cream, prawn cocktail
Organic chicken, coconut juice, molo dumplings, ham
Nilaga Corn Chowder
Wagyu beef broth, corn puree, organic vegetables
Adobo Mushroom Cappuccino
Their best selling signature soup, garlic cream foam, adobo mushroom sauté
Seasonal organic greens and vegetables, choice of dressing (Mango Bagoong, Spicy Tomato, Pepper Adobo)
Beer battered soft shell crabs, crispy vegetables, 3 sauces (shrimp buro, taba ng talangka and coconut curry)
I can’t really say that I have a particular favorite. Everything was so perfect that every time our server, TITO would come out bearing our next food, I would alternate between tearing up and jumping up & down in anticipation of what other delight he has in store for us! <3 No exag!
The dessert servings are all miniscule which is just perfect because we got to sample all 11 varieties! *blush* Even though chef Rolando & his wife chef Jacqueline were just a couple of seats away from us, I couldn’t resist ordering EVERYTHING on the dessert menu. Just look at how happy it made me! ;))
The next time the BF people see me they’d probably put up the CLOSED sign haha. Na-lugi sila sa akin! ;))
With the husband & wife team behind Bistro Filipino! <3
and look what they put on the bill.. NEVER ENDING. LELs! ;))
So the next time you wanna take out that special someone on a date, I would really suggest Bistro Filipino. Guaranteed extra pogi points for you! ;) And don’t forget the flowers. Everything is more beautiful with flowers –HUWAG MAGKURIPOT! ;)
PS- For a more run-down version of our Bistro Filipino experience, ate gave a great review on LOOLOO (an apple app). She’s much better with words than I am. And she described the dishes beautifully! <3
Ate should be a blogger! She’d be great. She’ll be able to take me to blogger events! ;) If only she had the spare time, sigh..
And look who was soooo excited when we got home!! She certainly missed us. Yes, my hunny too. LELs! ;P
