Tila bang tinadhana na ang lingguhang pagsubok ng looloo sa linggong ito ay may temang may kinalaman sa buwan ng wikang Filipino -- dahil ang isa sa mga nakapilang kainan na gagawan ko ng pagsusuri ay isang kainang Pilipino.

Noong nakalipas na Sabado, pagkatapos ng aking trabaho sa ganap ng ika-6 ng gabi, dali dali akong nagtungo sa SM Hilagang Edsa upang kitain ang aking ina at ate. Napagpasyahan naming kumain sa labas bilang selebrasyon sa nakalipas na kaarawan ni ate noong ika-23 ng Hulyo.

Ang Bistro Remedios ang napili naming kainan para sa okasyong ito, sapagkat mayroong kupong pangdiskwento ang aking ate mula sa kumpanya ng kanyang kard na pangutang. Sumatotal, makakakuha kami ng tatlongpu't tatlong porsyento ng diskwento para sa aming kakainin. Sulit, 'di ba? Ito ang listahan at ng mga paghahatol ko sa bawat putaheng aming kinain noong gabing iyon (Hindi ko na isinalin sa wikang Filipino ang mga pangalan ng mga putahe):

✔ CRISPY CRABLETS (Php 130) - 11088110881108811088
Malulutong ang pritong maliliit na alimasag na ito. Isang masarap na pampagana upang simula ang kainang ito. 128076 Siguraduhing isasasaw ito sa suka, para mas lalo pa itong maging malasa at sumarap.

✔ PAKO AT ITLOG NA MAALAT (Php 165) - 1108811088110881108811088
Unang beses kong natikman ang pako. Noong sinama ito ni ate sa aming listahan ng kakainin sa gabing ito, ang aking unang akala ay pareho lamang ito sa lato. 128517 Ngunit ako pala'y nagkamali. Isa itong kakaibang uri ng gulay na pampagana, iba sa kadalasang litsugas na may kasamang ibang sangkap. Masarap rin ang itlog na maalat nila, malasa at sariwa. Sa totoo lang, kasinglasa nito ang kulay dilaw na parte ng balut. Mayroon din itong sarsang maasim-asim, na angkop sa kabuuang lasa ng putaheng ito.

✔ U.S. TOP BLADE BISTEK (Php 385) - 1108811088110881108811088
Bistek Tagalog kung tawagin ng iba, ang bersyon ng Bistro Remedios ay maituturing na isa sa mga pinakamasarap na bistek na aking natikman sa tanang buhay ko. Ang karneng ginamit nila ay may magandang kalidad. Ang sarsa ay malasa, at nanunuot sa bawat kagat ng karne. Ito ang aking paboritong putahe sa gabing ito. 128076128158

✔ TIDTAD (Php 295) - 1108811088110881108811088
Isang putaheng Kapampangan, halos kaparehas nito ang nakagisnan nating Dinuguan. Ito'y inihain sa aming may kasamang dalawang pirasong puto. Masarap ito, dahil malinamnam ito ngunit hindi gaanong matapang ang lasa ng dugo. Mayroon itong iba't ibang lamang loob ng baboy, at lahat ito ay nalutong maigi at hindi naman mahirap kainin.

✔ MASUSTANSYANG KANIN (Php 230) - 110881108811088
Isa ito sa mga nagustuhan namin noong nakaraang bisita namin sa kainang ito, kaya naman napagpasyahan naming ito uli ang bilhin para sa aming kanin. Dahil hindi pwedeng kumain ng itlog ang ate ko, nakiusap kaming huwag nalang ito lagyan ng itlog sa ibabaw. Noong una'y naihain pa rin sa amin ang kaning may itlog, ngunit tinulungan kami ni Nani na palitan ito. Siya pa ang humingi ng tawad, kahit pa ibang weyter naman ang kumuha ng mga putaheng pinili naming i-order. Hindi rin kasing ganda ang kalidad ng kanin nila sa pagkakataong ito, kaya naman mas nabawasan ang pagkasarap nito.

✔ SIKRETO NI MARIA CLARA (Php 175) - 1108811088110881108811088
Noong unang beses kaming kumain dito ilang buwan na ang nakalilipas, nabunyag na noong pagkakataong iyon ang sikreto ni Maria Clara. 128586 Dahil nagustuhan namin ito, minarapat namin na tapusin ang gabi sa pamamagitan ng panghimagas na ito. Mainit na suman at matatamis na mangga ang nakakubli sa ilalim ng niyog na sorbetes. Wala akong masabi, isa ito sa paborito kong panghimagas na Pinoy! 128076

Ang mga tauhan nila ay may mga alerto at mababait, ngunit mayroon ring mga masusungit at tila ayaw paistorbo. Sa buong gabi, ang weyter na si Nani ang talaga namang walang sawa sa pagaasikaso sa amin. Nawa'y tularan rin siya ng mga iba niyang mga kasamahan, dahil ano pa nga ba ang magpapatotoo sa kanilang pagiging isang Pilipinong kainan kung hindi ang pagiging magiliw natin sa mga panauhin -- isang bagay na sana'y mayroon sa bawat empleyado nila, at sa bawat mamamayang Pilipino.

Celebrated Mother's Day with my mom and sister last Saturday at Bistro Remedios. Of course, they had to go to the QC area, because I had work that day until 6PM. My mom migrated from Hongkong when she was still a teenager, but she adores Filipino food! 128076

When my sister texted me that they wanted us to eat at Bistro Remedios, I immediately called to reserve seats for us, so we won't have to wait for a long time when we get there. True enough, when we got there, we got our table right away. We then proceeded to order. While waiting, they served us some prawn crackers, similar to the ones Chinese restaurants serve with their fried pigeon. 128516 Here's what we got for our mother's day feast:

✔ Home Style Binacol Soup (Php 385 - good for sharing) - 1108811088110881108811088
My mom LOVED this dish! 128156 It's like a leveled up Tinolang Manok, but the soup tastes sweeter, since they used coconut water for it. My mom's only complaint was that she wanted the chicken to be chopped into smaller pieces. Although, upon eating a piece of the chicken breast (a cut our family hates, because it's usually tough and dry), she was truly amazed at how tender the meat was. The chili leaves also added more flavor to the already scrumptious soup dish.

✔ Lumpiang Sariwa (Php 125) - 110881108811088
Okay, I have to tell you that my rating might not do much justice for this dish, since I am really not a fan of lumpiang sariwa in general. I'm not sure what they fill the wrappers with, but I don't like it. I was just thankful thewrappers weren't too doughy, and was of the right thickness. Just a side note: My mom and sister said their version was good. But then again, based on my personal preference, I won't be able to give it a full score rating. 128549

✔ Binusog na Pusit sa Bawang (Php 320) - 11088110881108811088
I love grilled squid! Whether it be prepared at home or bought in a restaurant, I love it so much! 128523 Their version of the binusog na pusit is more on the sour side, I think they must have already poured some vinegar over the squid. They serve two big squids for this dish, with its meat tender and not overcooked. I would prefer more stuffings for them though, as I failed to really taste the tomatoes, onions, etc. It's more of just a mush of everything -- hence the -111088.

✔ Ensaladang Sarswela (Php 235) - 110881108811088
We got this because I wanted a vegetable dish, but I did not like the lumpiang sariwa they ordered. This dish has the usual greens and tomatoes, plus Vigan longganisa bits, fried tofu, and grated cheese. For me, its taste is a bit one-dimensional as the longganisa weren't that flavorful and were too dry, while the tofu was cut into piece that were too small. I liked the vinaigrette dressing though, but my sister found it to be too sour.

✔ Masustansiyang Kanin (Php 230) - 1108811088110881108811088
#HealthyLiving 128513 It's basically fried black rice, topped with some vegetables and scrambled egg, though we opted not to let them include the scrambled egg as my sister is allergic. The rice initially seems to taste a bit burnt, but eventually, we enjoyed its flavorfulness. The rice still has that bite, as it is cooked al dente. I loved it so much! If only all black rice can taste as good as this, I'd have no problem in skipping the white rice altogether. 128513

✔ Halo-Halo (Php 145) - 110881108811088
We got this for my mom, because she loves eating halo-halo. Their version is served is a bowl shaped cup, and topped with a scoop of ube ice cream. For me, it's a bit too pricey, since it does not have any special toppings in it anyway. Also, my mom says that the toppings were not enough for the size of the bowl. 128557

✔ Sikreto ni Maria Clara (Php 175) - 1108811088110881108811088
Shhh... *whispers* I'll let you in on a secret. This is probably one of the best Filipino desserts among those I've tried so far. 128525 Warm sticky rice (suman) and perfectly ripe slices of mangoes, covered under a pile of smooth and creamy macapuno ice cream! 128523 Now this is one secret I'm glad I discovered tonight. 128513 There is no specific menu description for this, so I hope you remember this review when you dine here -- it's a secret, after all. 128521

Apart from the well-prepared food, they exceeded our expectation when it comes to their service, too. Our server, Alex, was smiling all the time, and before I even asked him if he could help us capture this moment by taking our photo, he was already beside our table ready to do it! Wow! 128076 The manager is also roving around, making sure that everything is in place.

The restaurant is made to be like an ancestral home, with stained glass windows and wooden tables and chairs. Truly Filipino, if you ask me.

Overall, I commend them for delivering generally good food, coupled with an ambiance that would make Filipinos at home; and to top it all off, service that went beyond what is expected of them. Truly commendable, Bistro Remedios! We'll definitely be back. 128076

Comfort traditional Filipino food. We had the kare-kare, crispy pata, sinigang na bangus, gising-gising, pakbet and bistek. Everything was really good. Stand out was the bistek, soft and flavorful. Sinigang sa bayabas needed an extra bayabas or two per serving.

Good but not much more than the food I would have at home.

The best sticky rice + mangoes dessert I have tasted! The Sikreto ni Maria truly deserves an award.

The crispy pata, sinigang na baboy and sisig were soo good too. Definitely on our list of fave restos.

I really love this resto!!! One of the authentic Filipino restos that you can really count on plus the prices are just right to their served dishes.

We only ordered bulalo (serving size 3-4pax) because the dish has everything meat n veggies n soup :) and for me it is one of the best tasting bulalo. Definitely would be back for it.

The place is cozy like their main branch in malate.

The servers were accomodating n attentive to requests.

Bistro Remedios, a popular Filipino restaurant in Malate, Manila, has finally branched out here in the North. It is located in the newly renovated Ground Floor of The Block, SM North where all other recently opened restaurants are. Bistro Remedios is one of the restaurants of the long-standing LJC Group which also includes Café Adriatico, Café Havana, Abe, Fely J’s, Lorenzo’s Way, and Larry’s Café and Bar. It is one of the good Filipino restaurants that serve classic dishes so if you have foreign visitors, you can trust that it will not disappoint.

For dinner, we ordered Sinuam na Mais, Baby Squid, Crispy Crablets, and Binagoongan. All the dishes tasted good though the serving was not too generous given the price. I would say they are good for 2 to 3 persons who have regular appetite.

Service was good and quick despite the busy night, given almost all tables were occupied at a little past 7pm. They serve kropek (prawn crackers) on the house and that will keep you busy munching until your ordered food arrives.

My host from Switzerland visited the Philippines and she invited me to dine here with her and her family. This is in the newly opened area in SM North EDSA The Block and I must say I loved this strip of new restaurants. I came with my boyfriend and two of my closest friends, so all in all we were eight guests.

Bistro Remedios is part of The LJC Group, also a member of The Bistro Group. The LJC Restaurant Group is composed of some of the best Kapampangan Restaurants I know like Abe, Cafe Adriatico and Lorenzo's Way. In all honesty, most, if not all of them pretty much serve the same menu. Excellent Filipino food, with a little bit of Spanish influence.

We ordered a bunch of their bestsellers. I especially liked the Binukadkad na Plapla and Laing. All the rest were solid great.

I really loved the food, but I have to say the prices here are ridiculously high. I hate to say it but it's just overpriced, hence the one less star. I'd still come back though. (^^,)
