Ara and I went to Bigoli in Trinoma for lunch today. I wanted to try it since there are quite a number of people in the resto, I love Italian food, and…I wanted to give it a shot coz I’ve been seeing it every now and then in SM North.
For starters, we ordered this ‘platter’ of 6 onion rings, 2 mozzarella sticks, and 1 lonely Cheese-stuffed jalapeno with tomato dip. It’s 120php. A little pricey considering the serving size. But still, good! Especially the Jalapeno. I just wished the Jalapeno had some more spice to it. The mozzarella stick was fun to eat, with all the gooey cheese when chewed.
We also ordered this Chicken w/ Spaghetti al Pesto for 165php. It really looks good. Since Ara is a fan of pesto, she ordered this. But, I think, the same for all other dishes, the serving size is too small for me. But the chicken is good enough, savory and a little sweet. It’s dipped in a sauce after being fried, I guess. It’s not the crunchy type. The pesto pasta is like any other pesto pasta I’ve tasted. But don’t get me wrong, this one is good enough.
I ordered the Cream dory with Spaghetti Marinara for 145php. I loved the cream dory with the butter dip. The pasta tasted good. Although I just wished there was more (I could get much more pasta in another Italian resto for the same price). The Cream dory was crunchy, and soft inside. I liked it. Very subtle flavor in everything.
I loved the fact that the drinks were unlimited. I’m much of a drinker. The place was relaxing. Not much people in that side of Trinoma. I still enjoyed that meal though, even if I was not that satisfied with serving size. Bigoli!
