Do you have an Open Door Policy?

ODPWell, this bistro does have a policy when you visit their site but one shouldn’t be afraid as they do offer delectable dishes. Well suited for dinner, this resto opened its doors for me and my friend.

ODP3ODP2ODP1The restaurant was quite full when we got there. My friend and I got lucky getting seats as we weren’t able to reserve beforehand. The décor was an eclectic mix that gave it this modern rustic feel. They do have a bar where you could grab a few drinks but I noticed that most were having the resto’s dishes. There’s also another bar section where you could watch how they prepare your food.

ODC_OCTOPUS2When this was served to us, we got confused. This was categorized under salad but somehow, there’s not much of the greens there. Or maybe our notion of salad was concentrated on that. This really opened my eyes to a new concept of what a salad is. As for the taste, I loved this. The octopus didn’t have this chewy consistency. It was very tender and juicy. I was able to taste hints of citrus there which was refreshing. Everything in this dish worked and blended well.

ODP_BEEFThis lived up to its title. Using the knife was pointless as the beef was so tender, it melted on my mouth. It was that soft. Good braising on this one! The taste was quite simple though. Maybe I’m just not used to the ingredients used in this but I was expecting something more out from this.

Had to have red wine paired with the beef and octopus. Cheers!

ODP5This was one fancy dinner. The plating of the food was just gorgeous. I know my phone’s camera didn’t give it justice. Even though the place was packed, service was still good. The real winning dish for me was the Sous Vide Octopus. It was really good. A must try with some wine over chit chats with your buddies. Let’s toast to that!
