We all know that Teacher’s Village is a hub for scrumptious, affordable, and melt-in-your-mouth food. Whether you’re craving pizza, steak, or hand-crafted ice cream, this part of town has the best of the best.
Not all restaurants come decked out with beautiful decor or flashy signs, however. Some places don’t need excessive advertising, like Bistro Kalzada–an unassuming restaurant located on Magiting Street, this small restaurant should be on your next Teacher’s Village bucket list.
Here’s what we had during our visit to Bistro Kalzada: Pineapple Lime Slush, Liver Pate with House Bread, Grilled Pork Neck (Cubano style) with Salsa and Pico de Gallo, freshly-baked Flatbread topped with salsa and served with a red wine and butter reduction, pickled carrots and radish, Peruvian Chicken Confit with Aji Verde Sauce, and Green Tea Panna Cotta.
Their homemade Flatbread and Grilled Pork Neck were pure bliss. These dishes are guaranteed to wake up your taste buds.
If you’ve never had Peruvian food, you’ll flip over these scrumptious flavours. Try their Chicken Confit. You’ve never had Peruvian Chicken like this. Succulent, juicy, tender, and seasoned to perfection. Definitely one of the tastiest chicken dishes I’ve had in a long while.
For dessert, we had the homemade Green Tea Panna Cotta. It was light, creamy, delicious, and ended the meal on a sweet note.
You may have walked right by Bistro Kalzada and never noticed it but the next time you are in the area, you will want to stop into this no frills restaurant that has some of the best food on this side of town.
UPDATE: **Bistro Kalzada has found a new home at Savour Manila Food Park and is now located at 238 Tomas Morato Avenue, Diliman, Quezon City.
