Ibayo by Barrio Fiesta

Remembering the good old days.... We would always dine at Barrio Fiesta in J. Bocobo St. in Malate, Manila during the weekend.  Oh yes! those were the good old days... family times, great food, fond memories.

But how can we ever forget our favorite dishes.... now list them down Bouillabaisse (Barrio Fiesta Seafood Cream Soup); the ever so mouth watering Crispy Pata; the gravy rich Bulalo Steak; yummy Camaron Rebosado; and the delectable Kare-Kare with a pinch of Bagoong (Shrimp paste).

But as time progresses, things change, people age, but the tradition still stays the same... but now with a different twist.  Now from the long line of new generations from the clan of Barrio Fiesta, we now have IBAYO.
IBAYO by Barrio Fiesta, (ib'ayo) - meaning across prep. on the other side of; sa kabila; sa ibayo, sa kabilang panig o ibayo.

I've had one of the most fulfilling meals that I have ever had, the taste and aroma of the food being served to us was very tempting and it was really hard not to eat that much!! God help us..  
Now may I take you to a place, a happy place where all food served is good and gone.

Live the dream.... dream of O'sonho

To the layman's interpretation of O'sonho, one would think that it is a classy Japanese restaurant, well if you think you are definitely in for a surprise.  O'sonho is Portuguese for "the dream". 

We were lucky enough to have been invited by Eastwood Management to showcase O'sonho, a Portuguese fusion restaurant.  Anton Nik Brancik, the owner was very kind in showing us how passionate he was with his restaurant, how he came to love it so and why people dining always have a smile on their faces.
 We were showcased their best sellers
this may look like your ordinary sisig, but this is totally different
this is Chourico Sisig  (P210) and as the name suggests it has chorizo bits all over
You will love this, I guarantee it
Cerveza battered fish and chips ( P260) crispy on the outside
juicy and full of taste inside
Picaco ( P300) beef tenderloin cubes in garlic, red wine and 
a mix of herbs and spices, a must order
Peri - peri whole roast chicken ( P720)
Guiltless chicken of course if without the skin, very flavorful
Coffee marinated roast pork ( P 420), this is a dish unique to them
A must try!!
Peri-peri chicken pasta (P310), in olive oil and tagliatelle noodles

After a full menu, then came the desserts
Tres leches ( P220) perfect blend of sweetness
Almond Sansrival ( P220)
Chocolate cake (P220), something like decadence, really tastes good
 ice tea was perfect
wifey had this delicious shake

After all these, I was really full and very satisfied
now to day dream a little before getting home.
It was definitely a wonderful to have experience O'sonho ( pronounced as Osonyo).  You should have a visit, and you will come back again for sure.
