and in a big way. Welcome Home, Barrio Fiesta Greenhills!!!
Mama Chit's grandchildren are now on a mission
to regain and reclaim Barrio Fiesta's reputation
as the true paragon of Pinoy cuisine!
And now, in addition to the classic combination
of Pork and Peanut known as Crispy Pata and Kare-Kare,
Barrio Fiesta now offers insanely good dishes such as this one:
Sizzling Sisig topped with Pure Crabfat.
It's sheer genius.
It's pure love,
NOT your parents' BARRIO FIESTA anymore!
No more RATTAN chairs.
No more RONDALLA music.
NOW more Bistro than Barrio:
it's time to rediscover
the birthplace of Crispy Pata,
and come meet your new BFF...
Barrio Fiesta Forever!!!!
Fret not, ardent runners and yoga enthusiasts!
There are Healthy Dishes in Barrio Fiesta:
I even gave Fresh Lumpia a try...
... as well as the creamy Bouillabaisse.
Yes, I actually ordered a seafood dish.
And yes, I actually liked it!
I know, I know. I can't believe it myself.
And how can one resist Kuhol cooked in Gata?
But inevitably, every group dining in Barrio Fiesta Greenhills
will gravitate towards the healthier "heritage" dishes, such as:
and their world-famous
just pure pork perfection.
An after awhile,
this will start calling your name:
Barrio Fiesta's Kare-Kare, made from scratch,
(they grind their own peanuts), reminds me of
the Kare-Kares I grew up with: my Lola Sally's,
my Tita Veds', our beloved cook Apo Cion's.
It is thick, rich, decadent.
It's like having Reese's on Rice.
As a proud Kapampangan Foodie,
that's the Supreme Compliment I can give.
A very pleasant surprise?
The cool new interiors of BFG!
Blending the Barrio...
...with the Bistro!!!
Cozy Designer Seating and
Colorful Pinoy Art everywhere.
Barrio Fiesta is now a Date Place!
And no Date Place would be complete without
"Vin's Chocolate Ganache",
one of the new Barrio Fiesta Greenhills treats
that goes beyond Gulaman & Sago!
And my new favorite:
if Sentro 1771 has a signature Coffee Pie,
Barrio Fiesta has this unforgettable
Dulce (de leche) Corazon!
For staunch nationalists:
styled not unlike that of the Manila Pen's
famous version, and every bit as good!
The New Menu:
there are "Personal Meals" now,
including a perfect-for-one "Crispy Patita",
when you just have to have your fix and everyone else is busy;
or if you're feeling really hungry,
there's nothing stopping you from just
ordering the original hefty size all for yourself!
With or Without You(r)
friends, it's time to come home!
Barrio Fiesta Greenhills is located at:
Florida St., between Connecticut and Rochester,
right at the back of the original site along EDSA.
