10-Hour Roast Beef at Bizu

10-Hour Roast Beef

Bizu Patisserie has always been known for French Macarons, but it also serves up some really good meals. Their blueberry french toast-- made with brioche, blueberries, and cream cheese-- for instance, has always been one of my favorite comfort foods. (What is not to love about warm cream cheese oozing out to play with tangy-sweet blueberry preserves every time you cut into that egg-soaked and butter-toasted brioche?) In addition to good food, another thing that I find so inviting about Bizu is the store itself. I love the brightly-lit interiors that is characteristic of Bizu which, in addition to the high ceilings, purple velvet seats and macaron-colored walls, give off an air of whimsy.

Yesterday, however, I found myself in Bizu not to satisfy a sweet tooth but a dinner-hungry belly. We ordered the 10-Hour Roast Beef and Pumpkin Soup. The whole meal came in generous portions, good enough for two people. The Roast Beef is certainly tender, something that one should reasonably expect from beef that has been roasted for long hours. The potato gratin that came with it also begs to be mentioned. It is heavenly, creamy with just enough cheese on top, and it paired perfectly with the roast beef.

Pumpkin Soup
We pulled all the stops by ordering Pumpkin Soup. Definitely not a light soup, for me, this soup falls in the same category with roast beef in heartiness and I probably broke at least five "gourmet commandments" by having both in one meal. I adore it nevertheless together with the equally heavy main course. It bursts with the flavor of pumpkin and made even more lovely (although maybe less healthy) with a good dollop of cream.

Bizu Greenhills is located at The Promenade, Greenhills Shopping Center, San Juan City.
