Today the Remedios circle is home to three LJC establishments, Bistro Remedios, Café Adriatico, and Polka Dot Bakeshop. Bistro Remedios can be found right around the Remedios circle. It first opened its doors in 1984 and was named after the street it was on. It’s that place with the wooden door and green roof.
The moment you step in, it’s like going back in time. Antique fixtures, furniture, and art from local artists herald their walls and bring back the Old Manila charm. A live ensemble of Filipino Folk singers serenades you, as you have a traditional Filipino meal.
Pako at Itlog na Maalat
Forest ferns, itlog na maalat and a light salad dressing.
Crispy and tender Crispy Pata and a vat of thick peanut sauce. Whenever you think whether you’ll order the Kare Kare or Crispy Pata, Bistro Remedios, bring you both in a single platter. The sauce is perfect with the tender meat of the Kare-Kare and a nice crunch in between each bite.
Binusog na Pusit sa bawang
Squid stuffed with tomatoes and onions, grilled then topped with heaps of crunchy garlic. Each bite burst flavors into your mouth. Tender squid with the garlic is just delicious.
Glutenous rice with mushrooms, chicken cooked in a bamboo shoot. The sound of the bamboo resonating, as the waiters, come nearer to serve you this dish. Warm, rich, and comforting.
Ang Bistro sa Remedios is the perfect place to visit if you want no-frills honest to goodness traditional Filipino fare. From the moment you step in, until the end of your meal, you get to experience Filipino hospitality at it’s finest.
