One of the things I enjoy since being active in our book club aside from sharing the love for books and reading, is being able to go to different places. We had our August book discussion in Big Bad Wolf and it’s a place I wouldn’t have come to if not for it.
Big Bad Wolf is a cute and homey restaurant. I really liked the interiors because it looked more like a home than a commercial establishment. The place is packed with little nooks and vignettes which are all photo-ready. It was a stormy weekend afternoon so it was understandable that the place was not packed. Their playlist was composed mostly of movie/TV series soundtracks so it was not the usual pop songs blaring on the background. It was a nice hearing something different in a restaurant for a change.
They have an array for food choices which all sound delicious as well as selections of local and imported craft beer available in bottles or on tap, wines and cocktails. I ordered their Grilled Cheese Sandwich (Php 340), it was sooooo delicious! I loved it! Definitely worth every penny. It’s a two cheese sandwich in mustard loaf served with tomato soup and chips. The bread was toasted golden brown, crispy on the outside but soft inside. The soup was tangy and sour just the way I like it and complements the cheese sandwich. There was a generous serving of fries on the side. It’s only a sandwich meal but very filling. For my drink, I ordered Pivo Praha Dark (4.5% ABV) on tap (Php 170 for half a pint), a local Czech style beer – dark colored, not too sweet with hints of coffee/cocoa. I think this is a better craft version of Cerveza Negra. Oh, while we were there, they had a free appetizer buffet running from 3-7pm. Not much selection but it’s free so, why not right?
Overall, I think I would love to come back here and try out what else is on the menu. It’s a really nice place, a little upscale but definitely a place where you can bring your date.
