Big Appetite only at Bigby's Cafe and Restaurant

This is my first hand at blogging about a restaurant and the food we love. It comes not as a surprise since Bigby's Cafe and Restaurant is easily one of our favorite restaurants in GenSan. Every Sunday, we take our daughter on lunch dates after attending mass here. When asked which ones she loves to order, she will readily answer "the stetty". The Super Duper Spaghetti is a pasta dish with kids in mind. The fusion of sweetness and sourness of the sauce is just right even for picky eaters, topped with loads of cheese cubes and a little white sauce that my little girl can't get enough of. But it has been our habit to ask the servers to split it in half so we can take home the other half in case my little girl's attention drifts off her pasta. :)

Another of her favorite is the Dippy Doodle Doo Jr., a meal comprised of chicken fingers deep fried in a yummy mixture of bread crumbs and other herbs accompanied with a sweet and mild tangy honey mustard sauce. It is a a big hit with our little girl since it is boneless and easy to hold for little fingers, not to mention easily grabbed by daddy when she is looking the other way. :)



Another favorite is the Bermuda Triangle salad. What we love about this salad is not so much the mix of greens such as the romaine lettuce but the grilled chicken and beef with cheese sticks and croutons that come with it. If you are on a diet, then this salad is a meal in itself.

For birthdays or family dinners (with a party of about 4-5 pax), then I recommend the Fisherman's Catch or the Belly Buster. It is a combination of two or more dish in a huge platter. The Fisherman's Catch for example already has fish steak, gambas and shrimp-mushroom skewer and a few greens on the side.. yum!


The Belly Buster on the other hand is a healthy serving of grilled porkchops, a slab of baby back ribs and onion rings and greens on the side. This is a total winner especially for meat lovers, a must order for sharing! As its name implies, your belly will just explode with gooey goodness from this complete meal.

 This dish is the Wild Wild West Steak. Another favorite of hubby who never fails to get one for himself just as long as his triglycerides and bad cholesterol is under control. :) It is grilled so the taste has none of the greasy meat taste. Another perfect dish for meat lovers.
  
My personal favorite pasta however is the Raging Sausage Pasta, a fussili pasta what with the spicy and tasty sausages and fresh tomatoes that tickle the palate of your taste buds with just the right amount of spiciness. But I'm gonna have to leave your imaginations run wild with this dish since in my haste to eat it, I forgot to take pictures of it.. hehe. It wouldn't look good if I take snapshots of my leftovers for you. So trust me when I say it is one of the best pastas in Gen. Santos city.. What are you waiting for? Go head out to Bigby's Cafe and Restaurant over at Robinsons Place Gensan and order one for yourself!

All are lovely shots. I like the amount of focus with the hover angle. Nicely done. That said, Food photography is something that I will try this year. My blog (Digital SLR Cameras) is mostly about camera hype and this that those things.
