I’ve heard mixed reviews about Beso at Bonifacio High Street, so I wasn’t sure how good it would be when we decided to have dinner there with friends. But as it turned out, we loved it!
When we got to Beso at 8pm, there were guests standing around waiting for a table to open up. Good thing we had had reservations… but then again not so good because the person who had confirmed an inside table for us was already off duty and hadn’t informed the rest of the staff. They gave us a table outside, which was all right since it was a relatively cool night.
Bread with Extra Virgin Olive Oil, P55
If you want to start your meal with some bread, you’ll have to order it, as Beso doesn’t have a complimentary bread basket. Serving size is small (4 pcs), but it’s good bread.
Jamon, Chicken & Manchego Croquetas, P410
A friend of mine recommended the jamon croquetas, but I thought they were just all right.
Baked Mussels with Jamon, Potato Foam & Bread Crumbs, P190
The baked mussels were also unremarkable, really just your standard appetizer.
Lamb Pintxos, P165, and Beef Pintxos, P145
We also ordered a bunch of lamb and beef pintxos. I didn’t try the lamb, but the beef was tender and delish!
Crispy Skin Salmon Fillet, P520
The crispy skin salmon was decent, and served with cauliflower puree, zucchini, raisins, and pine nuts.
Roast Bacalao Fillet, P650
Bacalao was just all right. The fish was served on a bed of potatoes with chorizo, tomatoes, and peppers. (My friend Dickie was a bit disappointed with this dish though.)
Braised Beef Brisket n Pedro Jimenez Reduction, P570
But the braised beef with mashed potatoes and peas was sooooooooo yummy! This is my new favorite restaurant dish and I’m already planning our next meal at Beso just to have this again.
Paella Negra, P1,280 for 6 pax
I also loved Beso’s paella negra. One of the best paellas I’ve ever had! My friends and I were able to finish dinner with non-inky teeth too.
Rang, thanks for sending me our group shot!
