On the upper side of Lilac Street (near General Ordoñez), there is a new commercial building that houses 4 dining places, and we tried one of them today: Leon’s Bistro. They have a wide variety of dishes to choose from, and we chose the following: aglio olio with anchovies & sundried tomatoes, bacon-wrapped beef tenderloin medallion with mashed potato, and cheeseburger sliders.
We first tried the burger sliders, which are basically 3 small burgers with a side of very delicious fries! The burger patties were juicy and paired with soft, chewy bread.
Next, the tenderloin medallion was nestled on yummy mashed potatoes, surrounded with delectable gravy, and topped with blanched asparagus. Such a beautiful and scrumptious ensemble! ^^
Finally, it breaks my tummy and wallet to say this, but the pasta was a disappointment as it was too salty and oily! 😦 It was the first time for Leo to give up eating his share simply because he didn’t like the taste. At P160, the angel hair pasta’s serving size was quite small.
Actually, we believe that we ordered the wrong items as the other guests’ orders had heftier servings at (relatively) cheaper prices. I have my eyes on the surf and turf with mashed potato, while Leo plans to have the baby back ribs next. We will still give this place a try as the majority of our orders (including their house blend iced tea) tasted really good, panira lang talaga yung pasta, and the price-serving ratio can still be improved. 🙂
