Restaurant Review: Bizu Patisserie & Cafe

Published on March 20, 2013

Since our dining experience at Cafe Via Mare was a bit disappointing, we were wary in trying out the other restaurants in St. Luke’s Global. We were once again scheduled for an early morning medical appointment. And since we had to wait for a couple of hours for my doctor’s clinic hours to start after my laboratory test in the morning, we had no other choice but to have lunch inside the hospital. Fortunately though, we spotted Bizu. I had high hopes with this restaurant after I tasted their food on our company’s Christmas party last year. Plus, Bizu was included in my shortlist of our wedding caterers. :p

When Boyet went back to the parking lot to get my camera, the complimentary bread was served. I wanted to start munching it, but I had to restrain myself as I needed to take a photo of it. Ohhh, the crazy world of blogging. I was like a toddler who had to undergo the marshmallow test to determine my emotional intelligence! I wanted to take a bite, but I knew that bread with teeth marks on it does not look good in pictures. :p

The bread has a crunchy crust and a very moist core. Kung nandun lang si Coco Martin, sasabihin niya, “YAMEEEEE!!!” The bread was served hot so the butter melts as soon as I spread it. The butter made the bread tastier. Complimentary bread pa lang ‘yan ha?!

Boyet had Bizu’s Le Manille Tapa. By far, it’s the fanciest-looking tapa I have ever seen. The tapa is juicy, tender and packed with so many flavors. It has the right amount of sweetness and saltiness. It goes well with the fried rice, 2 eggs cooked sunny side up and a side dish. Two sliced tomatoes are topped with pesto spread and cheese. I initially thought it to be a weird choice for a side dish, but it was really good. I told you, this tapa dish is so sosyal!

I was still a bit full from breakfast so I decided to skip rice for lunch. I scanned the short list of their pasta dishes and settled with their Four Cheese Pasta.

It seems like I still didn’t have enough of the complimentary bread so I immediately grabbed the toasted herbed bread that comes with the pasta and took a big bite of it. I then started to devour the creamy pasta in front of me. Being used to the usual creamy pasta, Bizu’s Four Cheese Pasta was new to me. It was my first time to try a dish with GruyΓ¨re, Bleu, Boursin, and Parmesan cheeses. Geeez! I don’t even know some of the cheeses. But surprisingly, I liked it! I am not accustomed to such strong flavors, but my taste buds learned to love it. It would have been just better if they added bacon, tuna or chicken. :)

Bizu has a charming setup with pink, purple and white as outstanding colors. Who would have thought that such a dainty restaurant is inside a hospital? And with its delicious offerings, Bizu is definitely redefining the meaning of “hospital food”. :p
