Pinoy Food with a Twist

Last night, I attended the graduation dinner of two of my sister's nieces-in-law. It was something that I really didn't wanna attend since it would just serve as a reminder that I am getting older until I found out that it was to be at Bistro Laudico. I have heard of the accolades, praises and have seen his ice cream commercial but have never really sampled any of his creations. Because of this, and the fact that it was going to be a free meal, I decided to accept the last-minute invitation.

Dinner started around 7pm. They have a promo for P788 where you can order whatever you want from the menu. The dishes may be shared for as long as the people you are sharing it with are also availing of the promo. There were a lot of choices from appetizers, soups, salads, rice dishes (silogs), pandeninis, main course, desserts and drinks.

Most of what's on the menu are Filipino dishes but with a twist. Some of what we ordered were the Angus beef Kare-kare, Binagoongang Cripy Pata, Wagyu and Lengua Estofado, Maja Blanca Cheesecake, Banana Q tart, Suman cake, Paella Arrozcaldo and a whole lot more.

While a lot of the guests loved the food, I, on the other hand, thought it was just ok .Call me unadventurous but a lot of the Pinoy dishes I grew up eating are what I'd consider "comfort food". I want them to taste exactly how I remember them to taste when I was younger. I guess there are just some things that are better left unchanged.

For the more adventurous, I recommend that you call ahead and inquire about their eat-all-you-can promo.

Bistro Laudico is loacted on the Ground Floor of the Net Square building in Bonifacio Global City.
