Manila Signature Dish: Bordeaux

Bordeaux is one of the restaurants chosen by Unilever Food Solutions (UFS) to include in its roster of Manila's Signature Dishes 2010. Several dishes were handpicked from their menu to came up with a set that would best represent the restaurant's identity. Created by Chef Edward Narvaez, the set highlights Gambas ala Rochelle and Boeuf Bourguignon.

Gambas ala Rochelle

I'm thankful that unlike most people, I'm not allergic to shrimps. I'll eat them in any way that it's prepared: fried, baked, stewed, stir-fry, etc. I was delighted to find out that Gambas is in the set--being a shrimp-lover and a Bicolana, I knew this spicy dish would be a sure hit. The succulent shrimps mixed with the sweet-salty-spicy sauce makes it a perfect pair with bread or pasta. Personally, I'd like this with a steaming cupful of rice and an ice-cold bottle of beer.

Bouef Bourguignon or Beef Burgundy

Pleasantly amazing is the Bouef Bourguignon. Served over a heapful mound of pasta, the top round braised beef is tender and you can taste the earthiness of the mushrooms coupled with the rich flavors of the demi glace. I also liked the carrot timbales on the sides...even Hannah of www.flaircandy.com (who refuses to eat carrots) found it interesting.
