Watching many Lifestyle Network and Asian Food Channel shows until wee hours in the morning exposed me to the Italian pasta known as ravioli. This pasta is made of two thin sheet of freshly made egg pasta dough, where one sheet is layered on top of the other and a filling is placed in the middle (like a sandwich). Then, the sides are sealed to keep the filling at the center from oozing out while cooking. The filling used varies but the most popular that I have seen in many cooking shows is made from spinach and cheese.
So, after getting my car serviced at Toyota in Roxas Blvd., I drove off to SM Mall of Asia (since it’s just a stone throw away from there) to have a taste of Bistro Ravioli (I have seen it before when we stuffed ourselves with food at Vikings.) I heard a lot of good feedback on how awesome the food is here so I wanted to try it for myself. And I also wanted to personally meet the ravioli.
Bistro Ravioli has a simple, cozy, and bright atmosphere. Everything is just white – from the couches to the tables to the overhead lamps. This design is matched by large images on the white walls that show different food served at the bistro. There are also a few quote from Julia Childs, Sophia Loren, and Bellini.
