Bob's Restaurant: A Local Family Dining Experience Soon In Manila

Bob's Restaurant-- one of the most popular family restaurants in the city of Bacolod. This restaurant has fed thousands of Negrenses from way back since the 60's era. The original restaurant was once in front of University of St. La Salle and has been remodeled to what is now the University Courtyard, where nowadays is being frequented by the Korean students. Still standing, although is their location that has attested to the changes that has happened over time. The Bob's Restaurant in Northdrive (B.S. Aquino Drive), just across the infamous Riverside Hospital.

Over the years, Bob's has extended its menu to welcome coffee lovers in the city. Cafe Bob's was born in 2003 and it was originally in the University Courtyard. The cafe showcases gourmet coffee along with intricate architecture of the place. Lovers of the restaurant became more excited when the family owned diner opened more branches within Bacolod City.

No trip back home is incomplete without having a visit in one of my favorite restaurants. Up to this date, I can never find any restaurant in Manila that serves Sate Babi just the way I remembered it-- Yummy! Personal favorites of mine from the restaurant are the Sate Babi, Cheeseburger, Sizzling Bulalo Steak and of course, their Fruit Punch which is like no other! From Cafe Bob's I usually order Cafe Bianco and Choco Crunchies Frappe.

Early August 2009, I received news through the Facebook fan page of Bob's Restaurant that they will be opening their very own branch in Manila. The restaurant is expected to open by September 2009. Unfortunately, September is coming close to an end and so far, passing along Paseo de Magallanes, I can only see that there is an ongoing construction of the restaurant's dining fixtures.

I hope that they will not disappoint their now Manila based clientele which are very excited to get another taste of home. I surely don't want to be disappointed. But for the meantime, I'll keep my eyes on that order of Sate Babi.

Bob's Restaurant has Bacolod branches at B.S. Aquino Drive, SM City Bacolod, Robinson's Bacolod, Cafe Bob's Lacson, Cafe Bob's University Courtyard La Salle Avenue. Bob's will open in Paseo de Magallanes sometime between September-October 2009.

Who is EatsTrixie?

Who is EatsTrixie?

After a promise of never changing her URL, Trixie decides to change her blog ONE FINAL TIME. But no, she did not delete AvecLamourTrixie. She merely separated her food blog posts into a separate arena because she realized she's been blogging non stop about food.

So really, EatsTrixie talks about food. Whether it's dessert, Japanese, Thai, or just anything different, she would love to try them! She's even tried other "meat" products such as frog legs, ostrich, dog, goat, and horse. The dog dish though was only out of curiousity. She only took one spoon serving and spit everything out.

Aside from ranting about food, Trixie also cooks (sometimes). She used to be a culinary arts student but dropped out after 5 months. Whoever said you can't cook when you feel pressured should be given a Nobel prize. S/he is right. After her 5 month stay in culinary arts, Trixie found that her passion for cooking has disappeared. She has even avoided eating and cooking for almost a year after she quit. But now she's back and discovered that food will always be her passion, just as long as no one pressures her.

This blog also features other topics but mainly, it is all about FOOD.

Culinary arts isn't for everyone. You have to know if you are the right person for it. If you can't handle stress, you have to figure out a way to do so.
