We went to check out the Bordeaux Premium French Wine Bar in Burgos Circle at Bonifacio Global City (BGC) and to say we were pleasantly surprised by our food would be an understatement.
I was hanging out with Dani of danisalasalan.blogspot.com and Hannah of FlairCandy.com, and we were stuffed beyond belief after trying out three of their signature dishes.
We started the night off at Bordeaux with some Les Aperitifs (appetizers) in the form of the Gambas Ala Rochelle, which was Spicy Shrimps cooked in Bordeaux Special sauce for Php310
Along with the Shrimp Gambas Ala Rochelle, we had the Grilled Lettuce and Beef Salad, a dish with assorted grilled lettuce and beef in honey, mustard, and balsamic vinegar for Php215.
Already completely satisfied with the yummy starters, we then got to try the other main entrées like the Chicken Marinated in Rosemary and Paprika Simmered in Cream Sauce (Php365)
The mashed carrots that come with the dish complement the flavorful food well.
Also at Bordeaux in the Fort Bonifacio Global City, we tried the Beef Top Round Braised in Demiglace Red Wine Reduction Sauce with Mushroom over Spaghetti noodles at Php480.
As mentioned above, we had the Cream Dory stuffed with Bleu Cheese and Shrimp topped with Mozzarella Cheese covered with Hollandaise and Bleu Cheese Sauce, as well, which was my favorite of the night!
We ended the evening with the Mango Jubilee dessert.
I wanted to thank our friends from NuffNang Philippines and our new friend Edge for hosting us that evening! It was truly a wonderful and yummy delight for us!
When in Manila, head to Bonifacio Global City (BGC) and check out this very sophisticated and classy restaurant called Bordeaux. Of course, you need to try out my favorite dish here, the Cream Dory stuffed with Bleu Cheese and Shrimp topped with Mozzarella Cheese covered with Hollandaise and Bleu Cheese Sauce!
