Petit Bistro in Alabang: A French Restaurant with an ‘Asian Twist’
In the Philippines, French bistros are often associated with formal or fine dining, but in France it is actually the other way around.
Chef Glenda Maupin explains that bistros in France are normally “a more relaxed and friendly place serving authentic classic cuisine”—reason for her to have such idea for her restaurant, Petit Bistro.
Located in Festival Mall, Alabang, Petit Bistro offers classic French dishes with strong Asian flavors. While regular French cuisine would taste less spicy, the cooks of this “small restaurant” add stronger flavors or an ‘Asian Twist’ to the meals they prepare.
