  • Petit Bistro in Alabang: a French Restaurant with an ‘Asian Twist’
  • In the Philippines, French bistros are often associated with formal or fine dining, even though it is actually the other way around in France. Glenda Maupin, co-owner and chef of Petit Bistro (little bistro in English) explains that bistros in France are normally ‘a more relaxed and friendly place serving authentic classic cuisine’—reason for her to make this the concept of her restaurant.

    Petit Bistro, located in Festival Mall, Alabang, offers classic French dishes with strong Asian flavors. While regular French cuisine would taste less spicy, the cooks of Petit Bistro add stronger flavors or an ‘Asian Twist’ to the meals they prepare.
