Bistro Ravioli

I've been hearing a lot of great food reviews about Bistro Ravioli but wasn't able to dine until early this month. The restaurant's been in the business for years already and they've gained a steady flow of loyal ravioli enthusiasts since then.

So what's a ravioli?


A ravioli is a small pasta pocket filled with meat or vegetable or cheese. Its the Italian version of a dumpling. ;)

Although Bistro Ravioli has been the purveyor of fresh raviolis in the metropolis (those not in can), they also serve other delectable Italian dishes. I visited their SM Mall of Asia branch during the launch of the SM MOA International Food Festival and was able to taste their specially created Chorizo Ravioli with Creole Shrimp in Vodka Cream Sauce.


I also like the restaurant's "open" kitchen where diners can see (and take photos) of the chef and sous chef, and other staff preparing the food.



We started our meal with bread and a cheesy dip. I love the dip but I was eyeing the pizza so I wasn't really able to enjoy this.



Garlic Clam Supreme, P490. Its a brick-oven baked pizza topped generously with garlic and clams. So good! A pizza baked in a brick-oven has this smokey tastes that brings out the flavor of the pizza. Of course, clams and garlic is a perfect pair.




Diablo Wings, P280. Really fiery! This chicken wings is not for the faint-hearted. Guaranteed to make you steam. Water please!




Spicy Chorizo Pizza, P450. A unique creation although I've already tried chorizo in pasta but this is the first time for me to eat a chorizo pizza. I am not overly fond of chorizos because they tend to be oily and has this oily aftertaste but the ones on this pizza is different. The herbs and spices overpowered the chorizo taste. Thumbs up!




Overall, it was a very filling experience and I'm glad that I was invited to join the SM MOA International Food Festival. And by the way, this food festival is still until the end of September so better visit your favorite restaurants at MOA so that you can sample their specially prepared dish.

RECIPE: TKG's Brownie Balls with Cointreau Infused Cranberries

We may still be quarantined inside our homes but that doesn't mean we have to let go of our love for food. And if there's something positive that happened in our new normal, I'd say that most people (including me) have discovered the simple joys of spending more time in the kitchen. Here's my take on a classic brownie recipe made special with Cointreau.

RECIPE: TKG's Pan-Grilled Maya-Maya With Calamansi Butter Sauce

I chanced upon some fresh-looking Maya-Maya being sold near my daughter's school today so I bought some. I don't really have a dish in mind when I bought it. Maybe fried, sinigang ... And upon checking the fridge and pantry (no more olive oil), I decided to marinate the fish in calamansi to remove the fishy taste. I pan-grilled the fish being careful not to burn it. Then I minced some garlic, cooked it in butter, added some salt and poured the sauce on top of the fish. And its ready to eat. And oh, I also steamed some cauliflower as a side-dish. Bon appetit!
