Ristras Mexican Grill for Delivery

The great thing about working at The Fort: availability of great restaurants. One of which is Ristras Mexican Grill.

I love how Ristras serves their food fast yet fresh. It's also interesting how you could come up with a variety of flavors for your burrito/enchilada/quesadilla/fajitas because you could choose your own meat, rice, beans, and salsa.


However, Ristras branches are only at The Fort and Greenhills---and these places are not very much accessible for someone residing in Manila or QC, i.e. me. Good thing Ristras is now available for delivery via 2121212 and we availed the service during my recent sleepover with friends.

Since I'll be leaving for Singapore very soon, I booked a room at Herald Suites Hotel Solana so my friends and I could drink, swim, and have a John Lloyd marathon. After swimming and lying around all afternoon, we just felt too lazy to go out for dinner. The hotel's room service menu didn't offer much so we had our food delivered instead.


Must Try: Bordeaux Premium French Wine Bar

Hey guys, I dined at Bordeaux Premium French Wine Bar and I enjoyed it.


Okaaaaaaaaaaaaay. That doesn't sound/feel right coming from someone who finds happiness in drinking beer along Khao San's backpacker/transvestite filled street and Sampaloc's jeje/agaw-cellphone filled neighborhood. But yes, yours truly went to a place that has:

1. A name which you must google to find the correct pronunciation: \bȯr-ˈdō\
2. The word Premium
3. The word French
4. The word Wine. My body and wine don't mix well (read: heartburn)

See, I only frequent places with "Bar" on its name like this, this, this, and many more. My drinking preference makes it quite unusual for me to be seen in a French Wine Bar. It's something I'd rather skip as I'm more into a casual laid-back atmosphere. But with my recent experience, I guess it's justifiable to make Bordeaux an exception.

Bread and olive oil dip were given as complimentary appetizers. Funny, the bars I normally visit have appetizers that come in form of colorful kropecks or roasted highland legumes, i.e. mani.

The Grilled Lettuce and Beef Salad (Php320) is an unusual yet pleasant dish. Unlike salads where greens are served fresh and crispy, this one had the veggies grilled and there's tiny chunks of beef on top. Don't forget to dip 'em lettuce and cherry tomatoes in the honey mustard balsamic vinegar dressing!
