The aim is to bring these flavours, served with simple presentations, to a restaurant audience. “I want to level up comfort food because it’s really everyone’s kind of food. Though simple; many dishes have several layers of complex yet unpretentious flavors, making it hard to stop at a few bites,” Chef Mike explains. His signature dish, Bohol Seafood Bouillabaisse, embodies this exact definition of simple comfort food with layers of unpretentious flavours. Fresh local seafood is complimented by Chef Mike’s own recipe of “bagoong” or shrimp paste.

Food doesn’t have to be complicated. When you layer on flavours and the dish tastes good, then the Chef succeeded but if not, then it’s a mess. But good food, even if done in the simplest way is great because you get to experience the sincerity of the dish and the one who made it.”  -Angeli de Rivera, Deputy Managing Editor of Appetite Magazine

If anything, The Food Hall, the Asian Bistro will look to give Filipino and Chinese food a new market to please.
