Sans Rival Bistro in Dumaguete

Sans Rival Bistro is now open!

I finally unveiled the mystique of this iconic former residential building in its 'reincarnation' as a bistro :). Since it opened, it's really full house each time I pass by. That got me more curious!

Luckily, there were a couple of tables available when the colleagues and I arrived. I  had gambas al ajello for appetizer and spare ribs for my main dish. We shared a plate of seafood paella which is good for 2-3 people.

The gambas, sadly, tasted uninspired. But the paella tasted good!

 I had lemon ice-tea with kiwi for my drinks. I got hooked!

Sans Rival Bistro which opened just last month occupies the ground floor of the iconic Sans Rival House along Rizal Boulevard. Sans Rival Cafe, the mom and pop business which has grown as an institution in Dumaguete still serves the buttery, yummy goodness of sans rival and silvanna at its original location, just next door.

There's an al fresco bar facing the boulevard.

The spare ribs was too sour (too much tomato sauce?) for my taste!

My three colleagues had burger, spare ribs and sizzling steak each. When, I picked the tab: total cost for the meal (4 pax): P1,400!
