Sunday afternoon with my friends. After a thrilling, suspense, scary and annoying movie, we settle down for some coffee and dessert. I must admit, I've been wanting to try Duck & Buvette. Finally my 2 buddies agree this time (as last time the place seems chaotic.. Filled with bunch of kids.. Playing, screaming..etc)

The place is half full when we arrived. And everyone seems at a relax mood. So we settled in. Lighting is quite dimmed, but they got cozy ambiance. Homie feeling with the simple decors and paintings.

I wanted a cup of good brewed coffee. I ordered, El Diablo 128520 (P160) its a signature dark roast. It is served in a mug or you can request it to be in french press, for stronger taste. I enjoyed the strong coffee taste, perfect blend. Something I needed today. But this should be consumed asap, you don't want to drink it cold.

Tartine (P120), waffle 128522 topped with coffee butter and served with jam on the side. Enjoyed this one, waffle is glazed.. Somehow sweet, but with the butter on it is good then you top it with the jam. Perfect!

Verdict: my first time, and loved it! A coffee place I can come back. Also, browsing in the menu, dishes looks promising.. Might give it a try next time.

First I would like to say that this half duck order is delicious - and big. It was a challenge even for me to finish it albeit I was alone hehe it's really meant for sharing. I need to point out though that this barely tasted like duck confit. Confit is salt cured and the meat should taste slight salty. I think the owners tuned it to the local palette and it's kinda obvious since they have rock salt on the side (and rice 128513). Oh and yes, I was able to finish everything. 128586

Must try the 8-hour angus brisket! The beef was very tender and the roast mushroom sauce didn't overpower the dish. Came with a side of garlic potato mash with the consistency of polenta. Reasonably priced at Php370. We also ordered the Bikini Sandwich. A bit smaller than what you'd expect for Php270 but the black truffle spread was divine. TDF.

I have wanted to try the Duck Confit in this joint but my sister and I were on a tight budget so we ended up ordering other stuff. It was still a nice experience though since we got to try something out of their menu. And we weren't that hungry for lunch so we wanted something light.

My sister and I had our eyes on the same sandwich which was the Bikini Sandwich. It's a grilled cheese sandwich made more exciting having Parma Ham and Black Truffle Spread. Don't get me wrong, it was absolutely delicious, but the portion was ridiculously tiny. Omeged, as in. The black truffle spread was amazing! I just wished we had more. At Php 270 ++, my sister and I couldn't help but comment on the fact that their table napkin was even bigger than the sandwich. Please see photo for reference. It was sad looking, but the taste is great. I can't say it was really worth it though.

My sister had a toothache so she just wanted Pasta. We were looking for a cream based pasta but they didn't have any. The waiter suggested their Carbonara with there house made Pappardelle. The pasta was marvelous, having been made fresh. The portion was good enough for sharing, but at Php 405 ++, it is also ridiculously expensive. I swore I could finish the dish on my own if I was hungry. It was delicious, I must say. But still, ang mahal talaga.

I would love to come back to try their specials, but it would be nice to be with family, or more people to pitch in. Haha 128517

Nice sweet crisp tartine waffles + latte art. 9786 I loved the raspberry jam that came with the waffle. After walking around the mall, it's a nice spot to sit and just get your legs rested. The was very attentive and accommodating.

K and I couldn't decide where to get dessert after or super healthy dinner at Green Pastures, good thing we passed by D&B! 9786

I remembered having their Honey & Thyme Macaron Ice Cream before, and I really liked it. It was almost the same size as a Samsung Note phone. This time though, it was like only a half of that. 128557

We also got their very famous Earl Grey Cheesecake! I was actually hesitant to order one because K does not like teas. To my surprise, he ate half of the order!!! He actually told me to eat already because he was close to finishing it! 128514 I like that the cheesecake has the right amount of tartiness to eat, plus it's balanced with earl grey tea, which is my favorite! 9786

This one makes it to my top desserts in Manila!

My brother in law recommed this resto, we tried their wild sourdough bread basket, lightly toasted, served with French butter php 120. Their house specialty, D & B crispy half duck confit, served with whole grain mustard, red wine sauce, ratatouille duck rice and cranberry carrot sides php 980. The duck has crispy skin, the meat tender and juicy, it literally fall off from the bone. The shaved carrot salad had a generous dressing, topped with minced cranberry bits. The rice was tasty by itself. The mustard and sauce enhanced the flavor of the meat. This ambiance was nice, not too bright, comfortable seats and friendly servers.. This resto was formerly called Cafe provencal.

The duck confit is good. But the beef burgundy? Divine! Love love love this dish. Comes with a generous serving of rice, so if you're hungry, do order this one. Definitely a restaurant worth coming back to. 128523

You cannot go here without trying their duck confit. Their Angus meatballs are also a good appetizer while waiting for the main course. Finally, don't forget to cap it all off with their macaron ice cream. Tried their banana peanut butter flavor and loved it! Would definitely go back here 128077🏼

Maple candied bacon. 128077🏼128077🏼
You can't go wrong with the angus and mashed potatoes which we devoured or their pizza but this was the highlight and will now become a staple everytime I visit. Only wish I discovered this sooner. 128588🏼

This, folks, is the main event -- the reason why you come here: their talked-about Duck Confit. Fatty, crispy, tender, this wonderful French viand was amazing. Just make sure you bring hungry friends with you -- as it's kinda hard to finish.

Also had the French onion soup which surprisingly was blah, and the octopus salad which was quite good.

Me thinks this place is worthy of a return.

Got their goat cheese ravioli in tomato basil sauce. It was pretty good. I love the sauce!

I also tried their waffles. Got the coffee butter flavored one. Nothing special and the waffle was pretty small too.

Le Deli Slate - quite the bountiful plate. The crust on their bread was a little too tough for my liking, but everything was tasty. The brandade dip really needed the bread, since it was salty.

Grilled Octopus Salad - PERFECTION. Amazing balance of flavors. Octopus was tender. Dressing was excellent.

8 Hour Angus Briskets - Wonderfully tender, some areas with a crispy char (but not off-putting) characteristic of grilled meat. Garlic mashed potato was a great complement.

EARL GREY CHEESECAKE - This has the largest spot in my photo, because THIS WAS THE STAR OF THE MEAL. Sorry to sound cliché, but one bite and YOU'RE IN HEAVEN. Seriously. STOP READING THIS REVIEW AND GO TRY IT FOR YOURSELF ALREADY.

I would come here again to try their other dishes. And to get that cheesecake again. And no more sharing. xD

If people can marry food, I'm gonna marry D&B's mashed potato.

Had their 8-hour Angus Beef Brisket which is so good and so tender! It was sided with mashed potato and I think I just died a little when I tasted it. 128124🏼

Tried also their Farmer's Garden Salad. The uploaded pic is their Crispy Potato Pave with Salty Duck Egg. I didn't like it that much. Had umay factor with this one.

French food at an affordable price! Order the Beef Brisket! It really does melt in your mouth and their mashed potatoes are creamy. We also ordered the Crispy Potato Pave and Salty Duck Egg. It's good too!

"light" sandwich dinner at d&b. home made sautéed olives with raw almonds for starters, then bikini sandwich & french dip roast beef sandwich (black angus+romano cheese+gravy dip), capped with earl grey cheesecake & el diablo coffee.

our favorite d&b sandwich is still a winner but the black angus sandwich is also outstanding. the gravy is particularly good, very tasty. the sautéed olives went surprisingly well with the almonds (o baka ako lang ang hindi nakaka alam na bagay sila).

of course the ever present earl grey cheesecake with their intelligentsia el diablo coffee is the perfect ending to a lovely dinner.
