Filipinos are fond of eating, myself included. Yet another delicious experience opened its doors in the City of Pines. Who would have thought of bringing their culinary journey in a whole new different way? Bistro Lokal did just that – serving modern Filipino Comfort Food right on our turf! It is literally a whole new world!

Bistro Lokal: Fine-dining for Your fave comfort food

Eating is one of Filipino’s favorite pastime and eating your favorite comfort is an added experience. Bistro Lokal’s approach is you having to experience the craftsmanship of their chefs while enjoying the City’s ambiance.

As their specialty is Filipino “home-cooked” comfort food, it is also but appropriate that they tap local and organic food producers. Their nose-to-tail approach makes sure that all ingredients are used up and nothing goes to waste.

Passion-driven menu

When we were invited for a showcase of Bistro Lokal’s culinary arts, we were introduced to the term dégustation. Their unique tasting menu is one of its kind in the city. Featuring 8-12 courses in one platter, I am sure you will never forget this culinary experience. As this type of menu is their main focus, people will surely understand why the ‘eyes eat first.’

To have a more personal approach, Chef Miko Dy let their setup have an open kitchen for customers to see and understand how food should be made – The Bistro Lokal way.
Another catch that Bistro Lokal brings to the table is that their passion-driven menu changes over time! This means, you have a chance to taste a different dish when you come back! Every food prepared has its own story to tell and you will definitely feel it once you experience this unique culinary journey.
I personally was amazed on how every detail in the restaurant is put into its right place. From its interiors, to the quality of service, it is an experience on its own. (Do not forget their mouthwatering dishes!)

What you would expect

Bistro’s menu changes every season according to the the ingredients’ availability. To not keep you from reading any further, I know you want to know what they offer!
