Food Trip: Pino Resto Bar


I was driving around and around and around UP Village looking for Pino Resto Bar. I did four U-turns. Drove a few kilometers and stopped to ask for directions from 2 bystanders. I knew I was at 122 Maginhawa street, but where was Pino Resto Bar?! I knew I parked in front of a unit where Pino “should” be located.


It wasn’t long when I realized that I haven’t been reading a very big board declaring that Pino Resto Bar already moved to Malingap. Ohh smart me! Talk about selective reading.


Pino Resto Bar is an elegant resto which recently transferred from its Maginhawa location to its new slot at Malingap street. I’ve been to Pino Resto Bar for several times, brought and introduced different friends to its cuisine, and amazed family members with its delish food.

Resto BAR (Look at the humongous Margarita glasses. Compare them to the big Bailey’s bottle at the back).

Food is a tribute to the chef’s roots. The chef and his partners are proud of our local delicacies. Hence, the creation of dishes such as kare kareng bagnet, red wine adobong tadyang, crispy tenderloin tapsilog, bagnet and tofu steak, sisig carbonara, kesong puti salad, crispy hito, pino chickent inasal, etc. Dessert also follows the same food theme with scrumptious sweet treats such as chocnut turon, mango banana peanut butter roll, etc.


Kare-kareng Bagnet with Bagoong Rice (absolutely delicious)
