The Christmas season is the best time to reunite with friends with great, quality food so me and Sharlyne went to a French restaurant called Le Bistro D’ Agathe with two of her high school friends (Meg and Margo). Meg actually suggested this restaurant which I believe is one of Sharlyne’s reliable foodie friends. The restaurant just opened a few months ago (around mid-2011) and this is owned by a French Chef Patrice. The location of the place is quite odd, not in your typical strip of restaurants or even malls. It is located at a residential district which is in Bangkal, Makati.
And because of their Valentine’s Special set menu, we’re definitely going back because the photos I took there weren’t good. It won’t do justice to the quality of their food.
Le Bistro D’Agathe’s Valentine Set Menu at PhP 990
Each set menu is inclusive of one glass of French red wine and will start from February 13 and will end on February 18, 2012.
For starters you may choose from:
Tomato Cream Soup
For the main course, you may choose from:
Creamy garlic prawn (served with rice)
Pepper steak (with pan-friend potatoes)
For dessert, you may choose from:
Amongst the items from the Valentine’s set menu, we’re only able to try the Pepper steak and the Chocolate Mousse. For first-timers, the pepper steak and the chocolate mousse are must-tries. It was definitely love at first bite when I tried their pepper steak. Their smooth and creamy chocolate mousse left an unforgettable taste in my mouth. Every teaspoonful of chocolate mousse is bliss especially when paired with French red wine. Chef Patrice actually suggested that. Aside from the texture of their chocolate mousse, what I like about it is that it’s not so sweet. Chef Patrice mentioned to us that they do not use sugar for their desserts and just let the natural sweetness of the ingredients do the trick.
If you’re planning to go there for a Valentine’s date, I suggest that you should make a reservation.
