Pablo Bistro at The Picasso Serviced Residences!
Pablo Bistro is located just at the ground floor of The Picasso Boutique Serviced Residences along the side of Leviste Street. The restaurant is known for its global menu. Pablo is famous for European, Mediterranean, Spanish, and International cuisines.
Pablo Bistro can be accessed by the guests of Picasso directly from the lobby.
Aside from an extensive food menu, Pablo Bistro is also known for its long list of alcoholic beverages. They have wines, spirits, cocktails, and so on. We will be including a link of their website at the end of this EATSperience.
We loved the intimate vibe Pablo Bistro has.
Dimmed lights, classy interior, comfortable furniture. Perfect for intimate gatherings or date nights.
They also have a street side al fresco dining area for diners who opt to have a view while eating or while relaxing over a glass of a beverage of your choice.
A couple of drinks while waiting for our starters. We rarely drink alcoholic beverages ever since we became parents and we, surprisingly, enjoyed the drinks that the bartender gave us. Both drinks were pretty refreshing, flavorful, and had a good amount of alcohol in it. Sadly, since we rarely drink, we forgot to take note of what drinks were given to us, hehe. Maybe just show this photo to the bartender or your server, if you choose to try it.
Chorizo ‘Sobrasada’ Spring Rolls (Php 480)
Spicy Chorizo wrapped in some wonton wrapper and then fried to crispy perfection! No one can say no to that, right? We both loved it including our baby. The honey and aioli on the side provided two different yet very tasty flavor profiles to the spring rolls which made the EATSperience oh so awesome!
Salmon Carpaccio (Php 520)
If you are looking for something fresh, sweet, and citrusy, you must order this dish and you will surely love it! Aside from it being really really good, Pablo Bistro’s Salmon Carpaccio is also so so beautiful to look at. Really lovely and colorful dish altogether.
Baked Eggplant & Goat Cheese Phyllo Pouch Bites (Php 200 / Php 320)
One of the best dishes of our Pablo EATSperience, the Baked Eggplant on Phyllo pastry bites! Crispy on the outside, rich and creamy on the inside. You must not miss this when you dine at Pablo!
Spicy Tuna Tartare with Avocado, Pomelo, & Wakame (Php 390 / Php 760)
First, we fell in love with the salmon, now, it’s the tuna’s turn to impress us! This dish was oozing with freshness and color, thanks to the juicy chunks of tuna, creamy avocado, sweet and citrusy pomelo, and crunchy wakame. All components in one bite was pure culinary bliss! Awesome stuff, Pablo Bistro!
Callos a la Madrileña (Php 490)
Everything that we have tried so far did not disappoint, including their best-seller from the Tapas selection, their Callos a la Madrileña. Thick broth with a good balance of sweet and salty flavors. With loads of chorizo and smooth and tender tripe. Best eaten with bread!
Striploin Steak (Php 1,550 -300g / Php 1,750 -400g / Php 1,950 -500g)
Nothing beats a perfectly grilled steak! Pablo sure knows how to handle steaks as this piece of striploin was really really good from the first bite to the last. It was so simple yet so satisfying. All in all, steak done right!
All of Pablo Bistro’s Grilled Steaks come with Fried Potatoes, Piquillo Peppers, Garlic, and Tomatoes.
Chicken and Chorizo Paella (Php 720)
Pablo Bistro’s Chicken and Chorizo Paella is so flavorful and it has a different kind of texture than the usual paellas. Since it is a Thin House Paella, a spoonful of the rice has both crisp and soft textures. The salty flavor from the chorizo complemented the flavor of the rice really well.
Dining at Pablo Bistro made our stay at Picasso more memorable. We loved everything about Pablo. How attentive their staff were, the lovely ambiance, and of course, the good food. Food and beverages may be pricey, but it is worth a try. Lucky for those living and working in the Salcedo neighborhood, as Pablo Bistro is easy to visit. As for those who are not living or working in the area, trying Pablo Bistro is recommended. For date nights, intimate gatherings or to just simply unwind. We definitely would love to come back and try out their other dishes. Don’t forget to check our their menu by clicking the link below. That’s it for this edition of EATSplroations, ’till next time!
