Food Reviews Manila's 2nd Anniversary The Bistro Group Giveaway

Sunday, September 8, 2013

Pin It FRM tumblr mag 135
The penultimate giveaway!

The Bistro Group is a collection of casual restaurant brands representing various cuisines. The first restaurant concept they brought to Manila was T.G.I.Fridays, followed by Italianni's, and now they have 12 under their evergrowing name.

Though I haven't tried all the twelve restaurants yet, let me share with you my favorite dishes from those that I've dined at...

Fried Mozzarella
Friday's Mozzarella (P315)

Caesar Salad
Caesar Salad (P285 / P395)

TGI Friday's Mozzarella is a staple whenever we're there. Also good is their Caesar Salad with a generous heaping of crisp romaine lettuce bathed in that sharp taste of Parmesan. Then, it's almost always a toss up between Jack Daniel's Pork Chop with those chunky cheddar cheese mashed potatoes I love so much, and Cajun Shrimp and Chicken Pasta which has a spicy flair added to the creamy Alfredo sauce.

Alaskan Crab Dip
Alaskan Crab Dip (P395)

Creamy Crab Spaghetti
Creamy Crab Spaghetti (P425)

Panna Cotta
Mango Panna Cotta (P295)

How can you go wrong with crabs and cheese? The Alaskan Crab Dip is a great starter to a meal; the crab melds sublimely well with mozzarella cheese and white wine for that utterly creamy dip nicely smothered on pita or garlic bread. When in Italianni's, one must not pass up on ordering the Creamy Crab Spaghetti -- the reason why I now like eating here. The crab meat on rich white sauce is just heavenly! Throw in some Beef Salpicao if you need your meat, then end everything with an Italian vanilla custard in a pool of sweet mango sauce.

Fish and Co. New York Fish and Chips 2
New York Fish and Chips (P275 / P495)

Aside from being one of the best tasting fish and chips locally, this New York Fish and Chips has Parmesan cheese stuffing to boot. Don't forget to ask for more sour cream or tartar sauce just to break the monotony.

Bulgogi Bibimbap from Bulgogi Brothers
Bulgogi Bibimbap (P395)

Premium Boneless Short Ribs
Premium Boneless Short Ribs (P895)

Bibimbap is such a fun and colorful dish that I always order whenever I'm in Korean restaurants. My choice here is the Bulgogi Bibimbap that I pair with Premium Boneless Short Ribs. These tender pieces of meat are served raw at the table, while a server cooks it all up in front of you. It doesn't hurt that Bulgogi Brothers offers unlimited servings of sweet potatoes, quail eggs, corn, and ban chan either.

Hot Crab Dip
Hot Crab Dip (P495)

Village Tavern Grilled Chicken Spinach and Mixed Greens
Grilled Chicken Spinach and Mixed Greens (P595) 

Village Tavern Maryland-Style Crab Cakes 2
Maryland-Style Crab Cakes (P495)

Banana Crepes
Banana Crepes (P395)

White Sangria
White Sangria

Village Tavern is like the elevated version of Friday's. Their Hot Crab Dip is similar to Italianni's Alaskan Crab Dip, except that this is more chunky than creamy. The Grilled Chicken Spinach and Mixed Greens is a hearty dish already good on its own if you don't want something too heavy. Aside from the chicken, spinach, usual greens, apples, egg, and bacon, it has cranberries, spiced pecans and blue cheese which makes it really unique and downright delicious. What I like about their Maryland-Style Crab Cakes is the missing random crab shell that's irritating with most crab cake dishes from other restaurants. You can really taste the freshness of the crab, and the homemade tartar sauce on the side only enhances the flavor.

Don't miss out on their cakes if you have a sweet tooth, but since I don't have one, I opt for their Banana Crepes instead. I then wash everything down with their refreshing White Sangria.

Watami Assorted Sashimi and Salmon Sashimi
Assorted Sashimi (P425) and Salmon Sashimi (P225)

Cold Soba
Cold Soba (P195)

I actually go to Watami just for these dishes when the cravings start kicking in. Their sashimis are fresh and bereft of any fishy taste, and since salmon is my favorite, I get an extra order. I didn't think I would like cold noodles, but this Cold Soba proves to be really good. Nice and firm to the bite, it's perfect when dipped into the savory soba soup it comes with. They may seem light fare, but I leave the restaurant feeling sated and happy.

My favorite Bistro group restaurant is Italianni's in Greenhills. I love their food especially their pasta, and my kid enjoys their complimentary bread dipped in their olive oil. It's a bit pricey to eat there though, but it's worth your penny since the servings are good for two. :)


I like reading FRM because it's very informative, and I can get some info about the places to eat, and the pictures do justice to the food in every restaurants that FRM features. I knew about FRM through other Food Bloggers since I like reading food blogs/ reviews.

I've always loved the restaurants from Bistro Group. Just like TGIF's mozzarella (yummy), Italianni's pastas (heavenly), and how can I forget's bulgogi's bibimbap (the best). For a food lover and blogger like me Bistro Group Restaurants are just amazing. From food taste, to place, to value of money its just so damn good.

It's so tasty and the seafoods blend wonderfully with each other making this dish a feast! We also love Italianni's Angus Steak Pizza. The beef slices are so tender and flavorful! Yum! We can eat this everyday!

1) What is your favorite Bistro Group restaurant, and what is your dish/es of choice there? EXPLAIN WHY.

It's the Baby Back Ribs that got me hooked to T.G.I. Fridays. Fall-off-the-bone, juicy, finger-lickin' goodness! I have tried other restos' ribs but nothing can even come close to Fridays'. Oh and did I mention the peppery fries included in every ribs order's the perfect complement? Yes, it is!

2) How did you find out about FRM, and what makes you continue to read it? Please be specific.


I found out about FRM when I saw a giveaway on Facebook a long time ago. After that, giveaway or no giveaway I continued to patronize the blog making sure that it's always included in the food blogs that I read every night (if my internet connection permits it). I am a self-confessed foodie so just the mere fact that FRM is a food blog is what makes me continue reading. But of course the way the details are narrated in such a way that it tickles the imagination is what I call the "icing-on-the-cake".

Alston Cue said...

When it comes to the Bistro Group, it's a three-way tie with TGIFridays, Fish & Co, and Modern Shanghai depending on what I'm craving. Fridays for the steaks and ribs, Fish & Co obviously for their variety of fishes + buttered veggies, Modern Shanghai for the dimsum especially for their siao long pao which I believe is the current best in the country.

I think I first got hold of FRM on Facebook through a friend. I continue reading FRM to know of the latest places to go to and to get updates on restaurant offers which I usually go unnoticed most of the time.

1) What is your favorite Bistro Group restaurant, and what is your dish/es of choice there?
I love Italianni's of all The Bistro Group restaurants, simply because of its mouth-watering pizzas that are perfectly prepared the Italian way,specifically the Quattro Staggioni,because I can taste different flavors in just one pizza. I also love the combination of ingredients of this plus the Four Cheeses with arugula. I always crave for their Caesar salad with foccacia croutons, healthy choice and just enough to satisfy my hunger pangs.


2) How did you find out about FRM, and what makes you continue to read it?

One of my interests is reading Food Blog and Food Reviews Manila is such a good source of food article that I discovered through the social media, namely Facebook. FRM makes me appreciate every restaurant it features.Through its creative way of describing the menu and presenting the dishes in a colorful photograph, I can feel that even I haven't eaten in that food establishment yet, my imagination is already full of satisfaction. That's the reason why I'm an avid fans and reader of this food blog.

Chris Tejada said...

1) My favorite Bistro Group restaurant is Italianni's, and my favorite dish/es of choice there is the first is there crab pasta as crab is one of my favorite 2nd and third is baked ziti and there calamari is so crunchy as all there dish is so scrumptious and delightful.

Ex. I've always had a penchant for Japanese food; sashimi and sushi, more specifically. Watami may be a casual Japanese restaurant, but their fresh and succulent sashimi is better than most. Also, when I'm at Watami, I don't stop at the sushi, their cold soba dish is definitely worth a try. I just dip it into the soba soup, and slurp my hunger away.

2) I found out about FRM, through facebook and what makes me continue to read it is that it offers varieties of restaurants from where I can choose to try every once in a while, they show great reviews on all that they feature.

cafevida said...

1) It's so hard to choose a favorite, but I guess I could say that TGIF's is my (most) favorite one - because it's the one I go to frequently, plus my picky hubby and baby enjoy the food there as well. I love their serving size, the fun service, and of course, the food!!! And I think it's also because I love Fridays, the point of the week where we can just relax and get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. I noticed whenever we went to TGIF's, I would always order nachos - it's the ultimate party food, even if there isn't a party. It's kinda messy, kinda gooey, but oh-so yummy, and cheesy. Mmmmm... cheese....

2) I first found out about FRM through a post by a Facebook friend (forgot who) regarding a contest. I clicked the link, joined the contest, but didn't win :(. But since I'm a foodie, going back and following FRM's blog was a no-brainer :D I love reading about new places to eat, and seeing different or interesting foods, and the pictures?! Nakakagutom! :D

When I'm with my family, my favorite Bistro Group resto would have to be TGIFriday's. That's because it's a family-friendly resto. My kids enjoy eating there because of its homey ambiance. Plus the fact that my kids all love their burgers and fries. But, for salads and pasta which are my favorite, I'd go for Italiannis. They have the best Angel Hair Pomodoro! Their food i.e. quality pastas and salad ingredients and their impeccable service are commendable.

I first learned about your blog from reading another blog (I don't recall the blogname). I read your blog because your posts and reviews on food, restos are always thorough and unbiased. I also love the pictures you post which are really drool-worthy. Makes me want to try them all immediately.

1) What is your favorite Bistro Group restaurant, and what is your dish/es of choice there? EXPLAIN WHY.

I'm torn between Italianni's and Krazy Garlik, but I'd go for Italianni's. It would have to be the bread being served with the balsamic-olive oil combo for the dip. Ultimate fave! and the very yummy panna cotta. Any pasta/pizza in Italianni's is to die for! :)

2) How did you find out about FRM, and what makes you continue to read it? Please be specific.

I first found out about FRM last year, when my friend got me hooked into joining giveaway contests, as well as starting up a blog. Alongside with that, I've been keeping up with the posts of FRM to look out for places to bring my mom, dad and brother to for family dinners. and yes, the blog's been way too helpful and handy for me! :)

Definitely Italianni's! From their garlic bread with olive oil and balsamic combo to their pastas and pizzas. I love it simply because you're getting what you've paid for and more. Taste and quality of the dishes says it all.


I saw FRM before from.. I think Boykuripot's blog, and since then I read the posts on my spare time. Although I must admit I'm really having a hard time following because your posts makes me hungry all the time hehehe. I love all the reviews and I see to it, I try it for myself once in a while (cheat days!)

vivianaguilar said...

When I'm with my family, my favorite Bistro Group resto would have to be TGIFriday's. That's because it's a family-friendly resto. My kids enjoy eating there because of its
homey ambiance. Plus the fact that my kids all love their burgers and fries. But, for salads and pasta which are my favorite, I'd go for Italiannis. They have the best Angel Hair Pomodoro! Their food i.e. quality pastas and salad ingredients and their impeccable service are commendable.

I first learned about your blog from reading another blog (I don't recall the blogname). I read your blog because your posts and reviews on food, restos are always thorough and unbiased. I also love the pictures you post which are really drool-worthy. Makes me want to try them all immediately.

I absolutely love garlic. You can just imagine how excited I was when Krazy Garlic opened. I love their Amazing Krazy Garlic Salad. The balance of the flavors is just jaw dropping. I also love the 40 Kloves Chicken. Its juicy and tender, just how I want my chicken. The sauce that comes with it is just heavenly. Garlic breath rules ;)
I learned about your blog when I was searching for a review of Sophies Mom. Since then, I have been hooked. Especially since you feature restos here in the South. I love your fresh take on food reviews and your pictures make me gain calories just by looking at them.

Honey Barbecue, Tosatado Nachos, Chipotle Yucatan Chicken Salad will always be our top orders. And of course, who could resist their yummy Shrimp & Chicken Pasta?! Oh, their good service is a bonus too! :)

2) I found out about FRM through Facebook. I saw some friends joining FRM giveaways, so I joined too. But what makes me go back on visiting FRM is the honest reviews of good places to eat. :)

Friday's! I grew up celebrating my yearly birthday in Friday's! After eating here, my friends and family head to the nearest photo studio and have our studio picture! A kid of the 90's will always order the famous Friday's Three For All - Loaded Potato Skins, Fried Mozzarella and their Spicy Buffalo Wings! And until now, I am still craving and would always love to celebrate any occasion in the fab diner! So excited for the Chicken Fingers P99 promo every July 4th! :)

flynster said...

1) Although I have come to patronize many Bistro Group restos, my favorite is still Fridays for sentimental reasons and that's where it all started. So if I'm seeing old friends and can't decide where to go to eat or drink, Fridays is also the easiest choice since it has unlimited mojitos and food that can easily please anyone. No matter what main food I order, there will always be fried mozzarella on the side or chicken fingers. A classic!
2) I found out about FRM from someone's shared post on social media most likely. I also have the Flipboard app (connected to my social media accounts) so that's probably where too. I like FRM because the format looks professional and real, titles usually catch my attention and content is good, honest, real and with great pics TOO! That counts a lot

I found out about FRM in the side bar of the blogs I am following. I became a fan because they write great reviews on different dining place in the metro.

TGIF has been a must visit for me, especially with the sumptuous and flavorful selections you just can't go wrong. I especially love their mozzarella, it's the only cheese I eat.


I found the FRM on twitter, it was suggested upon following the PickiestEater.

I found FRM on Twitter and because of that Im your avid fan reader. Im a food lover and when you blog about food it really catches my eye.

1) What is your favorite Bistro Group restaurant, and what is your dish/es
of choice there? EXPLAIN WHY.

Our favorite is Italiannis and our favorite is Applewood Bacon Pizza! I love pizzas and my wife
loves salads. This product is one of the
few things that we can order without debating first. Its ingredients e.g. applewood
bacon, tomato wedge, mozzarella cheese and shredded lettuce is a combination we
haven’t experienced yet in any pizza parlors we have visited. We also find its
price at less than 500 pesos a box reasonable!

2) How did you find out about FRM, and what makes you continue to read it?
Please be specific.

I’m a food lover and an online contest hunter. These two interests of mine
brought me to FRM. I continue reading it because it made me feel that I’ve
already visited the places featured because of the attractive photos, and the detailed
and unbiased reviews.

1) I have plenty of Bistro Group restaurant favorites so I'M
NAMING ALL!!! I'm really lucky because my mom loves the restaurants so she's a
proud Bistro Group cardholder meaning I get to eat yummy food when I'm with
her~ :P Here are my favorites from each restaurant:

Friday's – My last visit was way back my 9th birthday so all I
really remember is the savory Friday’s Mozzarella! I love mozzarella so much so
I try to order some at every restaurant that offers it but sadly, they skimp on
the size and serve more breading than filling. Friday’s does not disappoint!

Italliani's - I love Italliani's because I can practically order
anything, even food I normally dislike like seafood! What we usually end up
getting, though, is the Aglio Olio (which is my mom's ultimate fave),
Margherita and Sicilian Chicken! I absolutely love the steak (which actual name
I have forgotten as we ordered it one morning after a company walkathon) and
how they serve it exactly as I like it -- RARE. A lot of restaurants ask their
customers preference but no one does it exactly like how I want it except
Italliani's! Oh and I love their Focaccia bread!!!

Bulgogi Brothers – My mom and I went to their soft opening
(half-price off) in MoA because she’s been watching Korean dramas but has yet
to try Korean food. If I remember correctly, we had the Bulgogi Brother’s
Special cooked to medium rare + Galbi Tang. I enjoyed the abundance of meat and
the unlimited Kimchi!!!

Watami - I've only been to Watami once and haven't had the
opportunity to come back yet. First off, I love the ambience. I'm a total
sucker for anything Japanese and I'm so happy that there are a lot of Japanese
cuisines in the Philippines nowadays! Anyways, I had the Tempura Tempura Udon.
I’m picky when it comes to shrimp but theirs was great although the soup was a
bit on the sweet side. My mom had the Pork and Enoki mushroom skewers and the
Tokyo-style Ramen in Shoyu-flavored soup (which she found bland). Looking
forward to trying any of their Salmon dishes!

2) I honestly just found out about Food Reviews Manila when I
got tagged randomly by a follower (who also joined) through Twitter last week. I’m
going to find myself visiting this site ever now and then, seeing as it’s
another one of those sites I like viewing when I’m at home alone (#foodporn?)
or in the middle of the night (when I can’t get myself food). It’s also a great
viewpoint for restaurant suggestions when I find myself in need of a good one.
:D
