Bistro Mondo ♥ ♥ ♥


And who would have thought that in a seedy area in Makati a warm and cozy place like this actually exists.

Bistro Mondo Dining Room



Unfortunately, the dining room was booked for a party that night so we had to eat at the rooftop bar.

Fortunately, the food more than made up for the lack of ambiance… and the lack of air-conditioning.


All the dishes were hearty and the flavors unpretentious. I see myself coming back to try more.
