The Real Deal


It's been a while since Tom and I had a date because we've been busy. We played hookie on the kids last weekend and spent half the day hanging out... well, not exactly, I went with him to St. Like's to have his knees checked by Dr. George Canlas (I will do a separate post on this).

After going to the doctor, we had lunch at Zao Vietnamese Bistro at Serendra, Bonifacio High Street. It was our first time to try their food.

The table setting:


The Zao Satay Platter consists of grilled chicken, beef, and prawns
Among the three meats, the chicken was the best! It was perfectly cooked and delicious. The prawns were good too but the beef was chewy. We suggest you stick to the chicken satay.
The Grilled Shrimp Salad was refreshing and the dressing was light, tasty, and sweet. The singkamas in the salad was a yummy surprise!
Stir fried noodles with beef—I wouldn't order this again. In my opinion, the flavor was bland.

I'd like to go back again to Zao and try other dishes. We didn't order much as Tom eats like a bird. Haha!

There were a lot of Vietnamese customers at Zao. We took that as a good sign—the food must be authentic.

I'm against taking stolen shots—I find it sinister especially, when one captures my animated gestures. Dapat lagi akong prepared at on-cue ang pose! Haha! But for the purpose of showing all of you that there were indeed a lot of Vietnamese diners at Zao, below are shots of the diners. I just hope di sila nagbabasa ng blog ko! Sorry.

The customers on our right (I suspect she's also a blogger as she was taking food shots too. So kyoot!) ordered a noodle dish for sharing. It looked delish! I want to try that next time.

Not Vietnamese. LOL

Shoppingero/shoppingera, what gives a restaurant its authenticity? Is it the interior, food, customers, etc.?
