A connoisseur of good food; a person with a discerning palate.
Despite the above description, I can’t say with 100% conviction that I have a so-called “discerning palate”. I still scrunch up my face when offered food I don’t like, and I can’t tell a Merlot from a Cabernet. I grew up as a picky eater, so there are foods that you cannot make me eat, either through bribery or threats of no dessert. But despite all this,
I may not be the next big food critic, but I do enjoy a good spread. Food is a great way to make connections with people, and I’m always happy to discover a new place for Sunday lunch. So to anyone looking for a new restaurant, whether it’s to catch up with friends, enjoy some quality time with family, or treat a significant other to a delicious meal, book a table at
The Girl and The Bull.
The first thing I noticed was the wall art and eye-catching decorations. Located at 346 A. Aguirre Avenue in BF Homes, Parañaque (Philippines), the brainchild of Gab Bustos and Thea de Rivera is open from 12:00 PM – 3:00 PM and 6:00 PM – 10:00 PM. except on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
Boasting a flavorful and ever-changing menu, The Girl and the Bull is passion on a plate. My favorite dish is the grass-fed beef tenderloin. Delicious and incredibly tender, the meat comes with blue cheese emulsion, brown butter, squid ink potato purée (which I swapped out for regular mashed potato), maple red cabbage, torched mushrooms, and leeks.
In the mood for sharing? Order the buttermilk fried chicken, their best-selling item only available on Fridays and Saturdays. With smoked paprika, balsamic maple syrup, and butternut pumpkin for flavor, this dish is definitely worth the wait. If you’re in the mood for an Asian dish, try the Korean BBQ Rib-Eye. Sitting on a bed of kimchi fried rice and topped with a fried egg, it’s a perfect hangover cure for those weekend parties!
The Girl and The Bull also offers a wide selection of desserts to satisfy your sweet tooth. My personal favorite would have to be the faux twix, a deadly combination of shortbread, caramel, and bittersweet chocolate topped with sea salt.
If chocolate is not your cup of tea, give the brioche bread pudding a try: it is made with vanilla bean, salted caramel, and candied walnuts. Both options are melt-in-your-mouth scrumptious, and I would go back just for a dessert date with friends!
If you’re still not convinced, check out their website, read up on online menu, view their Instagram for some drool-worthy food photos, and like them on Facebook for first-hand knowledge of their menu changes!
