Had a light lunch around 1230pm. The design is classical. Lots of white and wood w an open kitchen. The service is noticeably elegant as well. Proper utensils lined up, food served on the left side. Small things that matter. The food was superb. Expertly done. The baked Brie will make you fall in love w cheese again if you haven't yet. The Caesar salad had so many layers of flavors. It had a hint of anchovy and the perfectly cooked egg just puts it over the top. The dessert, a mango based concoction, blew me away. So many flavors and textures coming together. This guy is really a master of his craft. Well done, Chef Manuel 128077🏽128077🏽

Fans of Lolo Dad's, rejoice! Chef Ariel Manuel is back! And rightfully so. For those missing his dishes at good old Lolo Dad's, you can find some of the old favorites here, like the sublime Baked Oysters with Foie Gras. My hubby and I were lucky to have another go at this dish. And can I just say -- one bite and you're in heaven!

Next up, we had the Double Espresso in tomato and mushroom soup base. They were served in these dainty little espresso cups, which were probably meant to be enjoyed slowly. But the glutton in me just gulped them down as they were that good. The tomato espresso was tangy, but not in an overpowering way. While the mushroom expresso was light yet still quite flavorful.

This was followed by the luscious Baked Brie. As a cheese fan, this one just rocked my world. Stretchy and creamy, the brie was served together with crostini and a light salad.

Now on to the main course. I had the Duck Confit which was just cooked to absolute perfection. It was crispy on the outside yet very juicy and oozing with flavor on the inside. It was served with foie gras rice which was a great complement to the dish.

Of course, the night wouldn't be complete without dessert! We had not just one, but three! The first one was a huge (as in ginormous) merengue. If you're a fan of this sweet treat (as my husband is), you'll love this dessert. Next was the creme brulee which was light and just right -- after a night of heavy eating. But wait, there's more! We had this cream pastry similar to a cream puff served with a cream sauce on the side. Not a fan of sweets, but this one appealed to me.

Overall, my dining experience at Bistro Manuel exceeded my expectations. Would love to go back and try the Sippery and Taperia (the more casual restaurants at the ground floor). Heard they serve good tapas over there.
