BIZU: A Taste of Everyday Christmas! @BizuPH

Bizu New Menu-11.jpg

Bizu is our go-to feel good, happy place for comfort French cuisine and celebrating Christmas every day.

They're best known for their world-class Parisian pastry creations, like celebration cakes and macaron de Paris, but their food has been getting better and better each year. Not bad at all for a Filipino-owned brand that was established in 2001.

Here's what we love about the new menu of Bizu…

Appetizers

Bizu New Menu-3.jpg
Warm Brie with Caramelized Pear (₱675). Baked Brie cheese with caramelized pear served with crostini bread.

We love the contrast of the melted salty brie with the sweetness of caramelized apple, plus the bits of walnuts to cut through the sweetness. 

 

Bizu New Menu-8.jpg
Caviar and Smoked Salmon Terrine (₱675). Smoked salmon with cream cheese, dill, and black caviar served with crostini bread. 

It's your favorite caviar pie with cream cheese topped with black caviar but wrapped with smoked salmon. So yum with the crostini.

 

Bizu New Menu-10.jpg
Summer Watermelon Salad (₱495). A refreshing salad with marinated Feta cheese, olives, arugula, cucumber, candied walnuts, and raspberry vinaigrette. 

I like salad that has more fruits than vegetables, like this refreshing watermelon plate topped with generous feta cheese and raspberry vinaigrette.

 

20171207_130357_HDR.jpg
Burrata with Berries (₱675). Fresh burrata from the Latteria d'Ischia dairy with strawberries, dark cherries, balsamic cream, fresh basil, and virgin olive oil.

Delicious fresh Burrata from Latteria d'Ischia dairy farm in Bulacan with strawberries, tomatoes, and greens, lightly seasoned with balsamic and olive oil.

Plenty of times, this is our default place to meet and catch up with friends for a Christmas-y lunch in the Makati Area. 

 

Mains

Bizu New Menu-16.jpg
Prawn and Caramelized Pear Ravioli (₱485). Handmade fresh egg ravioli with sweet pear and ricotta filling, fresh prawns, garlic butter, and Pecorino cheese.

You can taste the handmade quality of the ravioli filled with flavorful ricotta and sweet pear, topped with big chunks of prawns. 

 

Bizu New Menu-14.jpg
Lobster Roll (₱895). Fresh Maine lobster sauteed in garlic butter with lemon aioli and buttery brioche bread.

Big chunks of lobster in garlic butter and lemon aioli, but the brioche bread was too soft to hold the lobster pieces and provide that bite I was looking for.

 

Bizu New Menu-28.jpg
Ten-Hour Roast Beef Belly (₱895). Our signature slow-roasted Angus beef belly with potato gratin, grilled vegetables, horseradish, and mushroom espagnole.

Their famous roast beef belly but served liempo-style, smoked using oak barrel wood chips to give it that nice smoky finish.

 

Bizu New Menu-29.jpg
Halibut en Papilotte (₱595). Baked Halibut fillet on parchment paper served with Chardonnay cream and Pecorino risotto.

I like the clean taste of the baked halibut. You have to put a bit of the cream for added taste and eat it with the risotto.

Congratulations to the next generation of Tanco's running Bizu–R&D Chef Alexander Tanco, and Chrissy & Aaron Tanco!

 

Desserts

Bizu New Menu-36.jpg
Bizu Halo-Halo (₱355). Our creative version of the classic Filipino dessert. Shaved ice with ube macaron, leche flan, red bean paste, langka, almond flakes, and ube ice cream. 

The halo-halo ingredients are served as toppings on shaved ice with actual ube, ube ice cream, and ube macaron as their signature ingredient. 

It's best to mix them together, but I like eating the ingredients one by one. 

 

Bizu New Menu-35.jpg
Valrhona Molten Chocolate Souffle (₱395). 66% Valrhona Alpaco molten dark chocolate souffle with vanilla ice cream. For dark chocolate lovers!

A classic French dessert of chocolate souffle a la mode for those moments you want a chocolate ending to your meal.

 

Bizu New Menu-38.jpg

I prefer this lemon cake to refresh the palate and for that sour contrast to the sweet and rich dishes.

  

Bizu New Menu-1.jpg

I like Bizu for its casual French food more than its cake and pastries specially with the new additions to the menu like the burrata with berries, salmon caviar pie, and baked brie.

It's our happy place in Greenbelt and our go-to resto for Christmas everyday!
