New Restaurants in Quezon City: Calle Bistro
A new lifestyle-cum-dining strip has just opened in the northern part of the metropolis. Calle Bistro is a collection of dining establishments that aims to deliver good fun and great eats for the entire family. It’s ideally located in Commonwealth, Quezon City, just beside the popular Ever Commonwealth Mall. Now, I only live 15 minutes from Ever Gotesco so I dropped by for lunch with my family recently. My verdict? Must come back! Read on where to eat at the newly-opened Calle Bistro Quezon City.
Calle Bistro: A Must-Visit Lifestyle/Dining Strip in North Quezon City
Being in real estate, I already found out about the new development that was about to take place in the iconic Ever Gotesco Mall earlier on. I just didn’t know exactly what it was. Thankfully, it’s a fresh concept that should be able to pique the interest of residents within the area.
Located along the parking side of the mall, Calle Bistro is a breath of fresh air with its open all-glass exteriors. A stark contrast to the more traditional look of the old mall.
Calle Bistro features a dozen distinct tenants that range from Chinese to Filipino restaurants, cafes and wine bars. Its perfect mix of stores and shops create an ideal community where customers can dine, meet, relax and enjoy a variety of flavors and experiences with family and friends. From breakfast, lunch, and even to after-dinner drinks.
“We aim that Calle Bistro will become the favorite destination of families and friends. Who are looking for a foodie adventure in this side of the city,” said Chie Arao-Santos, Corporate Marketing Manager of the Ever Group of Companies. “We welcome everyone especially those who live in the northern Metro Manila. Who wants to have a good time and memorable dining. Calle Bistro is perfect for those living in Commonwealth and nearby areas. As they don’t have to travel too far and endure the heavy traffic.”
An All-Day Dining Experience at Calle Bistro
Drop by Calle Bistro and enjoy the food and offerings from Starbucks, Gerry’s Restaurant and Bar, Elm’s Kapihan & Winery, PUB Express, Hap Chan and Macao Imperial Tea. Soon to open within the year are Tim Hortons, After Twelve Bar, Cook the Bread and Teriyaki Boy, including JT’s Manukan Grille, Adobo Connection, Sisig Society, and Ima’s Kitchen.
“If you look at the tenant mix at Calle Bistro, you can see that we took a lot of effort to make sure that there is something for everyone. From breakfast, you can have your coffee and bread at Starbucks. Eating lunch? Try the Japanese dishes at Teriyaki Boy or the Chinese fare at Hap Chan. Time for merienda? There are cold drinks at Tim Hortons or Macao Imperial Tea. Finally for dinner, try Filipino food at Gerry’s Restaurant and Bar or Ima’s Kitchen. Lastly, you can enjoy chill moments with cocktails at After Twelve Bar,” said Santos. “For the young to the busy professional to seniors who just want to enjoy the night, there are treats waiting for them at each Calle Bistro tenant.”
Lunch at Pub Express
I personally wanted to try something new for lunch when I visited with family. So I decided to go with the best-lit/most playful-looking restaurant: Pub Express. I loved the modern-industrial look of the place, especially the cool contrast of the red, gray, and yellow interiors.
Food-wise, Pub Express serves quick and cheap meals with a twist.
There were three of us so we ordered a rice meal each and a basket of wings for everyone. My mom had their bestselling Baby Back Ribs with Java Rice for Php 179.00.
We also had the Bourbon Chicken and the Creamy Kawali for Php 129.00 each. While a half-dozen Garlic Parmesan Chicken wings only cost us Php 179.00.
Loved how the ribs were so flavorful and the meat so tender. The portion was also big and can easily be shared by 2 people. The chicken was so-so while the cream in the lechon kawali was a good spin to the classic favorite.
The wings were pretty good and big-sized too!
Dessert at Macao Imperial Tea
I have heard so many raves about how good milktea in Macao Imperial Tea is. So finally, when I had the chance, I just had to taste it in Calle Bistro! And now, I am totally hooked!
I ordered the Cream Cheese Milk Tea (Php 120.00) and it only took five minutes to prepare. And guys, it was SOOOOOO GOOD! It wasn’t overly sweet so you can still taste the quality of the tea. The cream cheese was the best part – making the drink very very addictive! Plus points for good service and the cute coziness of the place.
A Lifestyle Community
However, Santos added that Calle Bistro is not just for those who want to eat. “This is not just a space for food, as we want to build a community here. Soon, we will have events, mini-concerts, in-store promos, etc. to make the place a vibrant and exciting destination. We want people here to exchange stories, make memorable moments and bond with family and friends,” she said. “Calle Bistro is for those who want the best of life without the hassles of driving too far. They are safe here and we guarantee to give them a pleasant experience whatever the time of the day or night is.”
Calle Bistro is located at Ever Commonwealth Parking Grounds, Quezon City.
