Bistro Selera had invited us bloggers to attend their exclusive bloggers lunch last Nov 12 at their SM Lanang branch at the 2nd floor fountain side area. It is a Filipino restaurant that is home grown, their dishes are proudly Davao, they make use of the ingredients that are popular in Davao. It was one of the memorable lunch we had, because we had a feast of something uniquely Davao. To start with, they served us their specialty dishes from the 3 appetizers to their specialty soup and their specialty main course. Here are what we had on the lunch:
Bacon wrapped Bagaybay (Fish Egg) @ P250
its fish egg wrapped in bacon with garlic bits, I would recommend this to those who love trying out something new.
Dalawang isdang lumpia (2 kinds of fish spring rolls) w/mango cilantro dip P260
its one of my fave during the lunch, its compose of ubod and 2 kinds of fishes which are the bangus (milk fish) & tuyo (dried fish) that is wrapped here.
Pan-seared tuna with Durian Curry Sauce & Toyo-mansi (Soy Sauce & Calamansi) P288
Fresh tuna pan-seared cooked outside but raw inside in a bed of spinach & tomatoes. Its something uniquely Davao, I like the durian curry sauce, it gives the tuna a more exciting taste.
Selera Curry Soup P310
Mixed seafood with Curry & Durian.. this one is really good..even those who doesn’t like durian would simply love this soup. its a Must Try!
Pork Ribs Inasal @ P320
Grilled Pork Ribs Inasal Style with pickled carrots n raddish is really good..something different than the usual chicken inasal Must Try!
caramelized onino wrapped in Tender Davao beef pan fried w/ veggies & fettucini.. Its one of my fave dish..Must try!
Mangosteen Ice cream w/ sticky rice @ P110
its a unique dessert.. a combination of the sour taste of mangosteen ice cream with the bit of sweetness of the Suman (sticky rice) Must try!
Mangosteen Mousse @ P138
a unique blend of mangosteen fruit bits made into mousse.. Must Try!
I had visited their first branch a few months ago,have dined there with my family. Kusina Selera located at the Legaspi Suites located at Pelayo St (formerly Legaspi St). According to the owner of Bistro Selera, some of their food on the menu are not available on their Kusina Selera branch. They are planning to market Bistro Selera as a Bistro restaurant, so they have a few seperate menu items which will be offered weekly or monthy as specials in the next few months. Would like to thank the management of Bistro Selera for hosting the Lunch Event for us Davao Bloggers. To chef Jaypee Landingin for preparing the delicious and unique feast we had. For Sir Michael Trinidad for entertaining us. Really had a fun dining experience here. Will definitely come back to try their other dishes. 🙂
