“5 Aguirre Avenue corner Arsenio Luz Street, BF Homes Contact: 519-7097 Open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m, (Tuesday to Sunday) Chef Tina Legarda's Bamba Bistro has that Midas touch; it turns dull days into golden ones, and normal meals become magical experiences. It’s comfort food at its finest, made with the expertise of someone who's been under the tutelage of Mario Batali at Osteria Mozza in Marina Bay Sands, Singapore. Must-tries: Spaghetti Bolognese (P200), Bistro St. Salad (P390), Le Cochon Sliders (P350), Duck Ravioli (P495), Lamb Adobo (P395), Pizzookie (P230)”

“Haven't been here in awhile. It's typical European cuisine. The ambiance is above average, and so is the service. Food is mid-range. Not the best value, but not bad, either.”
