I have a raging desire for Italian cuisine. No matter where I go, I always favor Italian food. Can you blame me? The flavors and textures of their dishes are insanely delicious.
August 24th, Elaine and I were able to eat at Ristorante Bigoli. Boy, I was beyond ecstatic! I love to try something refreshing, and Bigoli didn’t fail me. Their foods are divine!
We don’t have an idea what to get as they all look appetizing to both us. We have decided to ask for their bestsellers and here are the goodies that we had. The presentation alone, made our mouths water.
The first thing that I tried was their Black Grapes Smoothie. That drink made me forget that I had a long day. First sip and you will already notice that the ingredients were freshly prepared. Alongside was their perfect blend of sweetness and freshness, which is very much appropriate for everyone’s taste buds.
Their double chocolate freeze is what coffee shops should watch out for. The flavor is very original; it has this sweetness that will make you crave for more. The drink has cookie bits which makes it very pleasing for my taste. To give you an idea how good the drink was: Elaine and I fought over it more than a couple of times.
I have to say Bigoli knows how to match! Their Italian chicken with spaghetti marinara is a perfect tandem! The sour pasta sauce complements the saltiness of the chicken. By the way, the chicken is cooked to perfection. This is a must try!
Spaghetti Al pesto with Pepperoni Pizza is also recommended. The pasta was al dente and the pesto was freshly cooked. The texture is perfect and the flavors were accurately mixed. The pepperoni pizza is something you will definitely ask for more. It’s satisfying but wants you to devour another because of its exquisite Italian taste.
If there is something that I can’t get over in my Bigoli experience, that would be their Stromboli Bacon. It was perfection on a plate! The flavors were flawlessly mixed; the cheese and bacon wrapped and dipped in Alfredo sauce is now my new favorite. Honestly, if I wasn’t served with pasta I can consume the entire plate! Talk about indulging with good food!
Did you guys know that I haven’t tasted gelato before? Stickhouse was my first try and it was perfect. The flavor that I chose was Pistachio, their bestseller. It was my first time to try that kind of flavor too. Before, I always stick to the safe flavors like chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, or mango. With Stickhouse I went beyond my comfort zone, and I’m so glad that I followed my instinct. It was great! I love the flavor so much!
Elaine contrastingly chose the strawberry gelato because she doesn’t like the taste of pistachio. She has tried other stores with that flavor and she didn’t like it. She loves the strawberry and so did I (yes, we shared the entire menu, lol!). Both of us have no regrets in choosing those flavors.
Just a little trivia: Both of us were surprised that there is such a things as gelato on a stick, as the usual gelatos were usually served in cups. And can you believe that it’s affordable? They serve Php60 to Php80 per stick!
By the way, Ristorante Bigoli have the most accommodating staff ever! Grazie to all of you!
This experience makes us look forward to another food escapade! Ristorante Bigoli is located at Level 4 of Trinoma (beside the cinema) and 2F SM North EDSA, Annex.
