The Charm In Mesclun Bistro

When In Manila, there is a place named after a mix of assorted small, young salad leaves originating from Provence, France. This charming place can evoke feelings of romance, variety & surprise. As with the meaning of “to mix”, Mesclun Bistro offers in its dishes mixtures that can entice you from the first bite.

A good ingredient to any great night out would be the company. I’ve personally chosen to dine in Mesclun with good friends I haven’t seen in quite some time, Chinky & Myra. The moment we stepped into Mesclun Friday night, we knew the place would fit perfectly for an evening of relaxed catching up over good food. Cozy & inviting, wine lined up on the walls of Mesclun.

While Chinky had Mango Shake, we had Tamarind iced-tea which was great to start with. Its something different & refreshing.

Watermelon & Feta Roquette. True to the bistro’s name, the different texture and flavour you get out of each bite from this mixture of arugula, watermelon, feta, walnuts & balsamic vinaigrette blends well in your mouth.

As we got talking with our gracious host Crystal, we found that Mesclun Bistro is an offshoot from MESCLUN Restaurant & Cafe in Linden Suites by Chef Katrina Kuhn-Alcantara.

As you take a look on the walls, that time we saw the Flammekeuche which is flatbread pizzas with homemade creme fraiche. French-inspired and with bread freshly made, we got an inkling that the bread here would be extraordinary.

And it was with the Four Cheese Sourdough Pizza. Homemade sourdough crust, baked on brick, topped with cream sauce, mozzarella, fontina, gorgonzola and goat cheese. This early on I knew it was already going to be my favourite. My friend, Myra had to agree too because she so wanted to take some home.

Andre’s Poke is Japanese inspired – raw fish topped with seaweed served with soft toasted bread. Perfect. And since I love raw fish, this just oozed with charm.
