Apart from dishing my way to Italian's traditional cooking at home, I go out and savor pasta, bistecca, dolce and gelato at my favorite Italian restaurants. In that way I don't have to fly to Milan or anywhere in Italy just to relish authentic Italian dishes but with the taste passing Filipino ratings. I have tons of posts on the said cuisine here ( do kindly look for the categories section on the left side, Italian cuisine), and one of my go-to restaurant for this fare is Ristorante Bigoli, if I am in Trinoma.
“We have worked to put together just the right mix that would bring a home-y feel, access & connection, options, modern Italian goodness from start to finish – elements that are so important to today’s discerning & value-conscious dining and mall crowd – in our aim to offer the newest hangout in the Eastwood City neighborhood. Ristorante Bigoli Eastwood has re-opened its doors to be the new place for meet-ups, get-togethers, happy dining experiences, and to generate great ideas.”
Ristorante Bigoli thrives to connect to Eastwood diners by bringing a piffling part of Italy, with an ambiance likened to chic Italian interiors but not stiff, not to unwelcome even teenage barkadas and family groups. Even the music is Italian, but with a tweak of Filipino adverts as inserts to every chosen album.
Have I told you already that for every pasta you order is a complimentary garlic bread stick that is so addictive? If you want more you can just ask the waitstaff for more fro free. This kind is soft and subtle garlic flavor that's best in finishing up your pasta sauce.I am pretty sure that in some way or another you might have tried or read something about panizzas. These are thin crust pizzas, meant to be rolled out before eaten. Bigoli has something more exciting. They have rolled the pizza and flavored perfectly for us. They call it Stromboli and they come in three glorious options. Pepperoni, Bacon and Beef.
Unlike the Beef and Pepperoni Strombolis which has a tangy Marinara sauce, the Bacon Stromboli has white sauce. I's like eating our regular bacon packed pizza with the regular Alfredo sauce.
I fancy the Beef Stromboli because they use wagyu beef, Kita Yama wagyu beef for that matter. Aside from its exceptional taste comes from its higher concentration of good fats (as compared with other beefs), it is considered healthy meat due to the higher percentage of monounsaturated (healthy) fat, thus has low cholesterol than other beef kinds. The cattle used for this meat were raised locally somewhere in the foothills of Mt. Kitanglad of Bukidnon, eating only grass-thus the name 'Kita' and Yama is the Japanese word for mountain. Hmmm, this compels me to learn more about the Kitayama wagyu beef.
Each ravioli is freshly prepared homemade pasta from two layers of thin egg pasta dough, filled then with a delicious blend of cream cheese, Mozzarella and bacon laid on a plate of Marinara sauce.
Laguria (or Laguria) is a region in Italy, said to be the place where it was first discovered.
