Paula Bistro is a small, two table restaurant in Bacolod City that serves Japanese food, coffee and desserts. Don’t miss this tiny restaurant because despite its small size, the food is good and the service is excellent!
The inside of Paula Bistro is decorated with an enormous green mural. There are two tables that can seat six people each. There are tables outside but we don’t recommend sitting outside because there are too many insects
We ordered four Japanese dishes and A Filipino dish of Vigan Longanisa. We chatted with the cook and we found out that she used to work for Nippon Ichi – a Japanese restaurant here in Bacolod City.
The food arrived on a cute serving cart! So cute and practical!
We love Gyoza so we ordered one from Paula. An order at Paula Bistro has five pieces of Gyoza. Overall not bad for its price. The Gyoza could have been panfried a little longer for more crunch. 🙂
The Dragon Maki at Paula Bistro is a long strip of California roll with mango and Japanese mayonnaise layered on top.
We really liked the Katsudon at Paula Bistro! They served it in this cute wooden bowl that enhanced the appearance of the katsudon. Katsudon is a Japanese dish of fried pork cutlet and eggs served on top of steamed white rice.
The Katsudon was quite good and the price was just a low 170 php. It’s quite good for a quick meal. This is also the most popular item on the menu with students.
We also ordered Paula bistro’s Ebi tempura. It’s 180 php for four pieces.
The Vigan Longanisa at Paula bistro is part of their all-day breakfast menu. The longanisa was served in a wooden frying pan serving dish with garnishings of onion on the rice and it also came with a little side salad of tomatoes and cucumber. Quite good for 150 pesos.
Paula Bistro also has cakes and desserts that are rotated in and out according to what’s available. Here we had their half-moon dessert along with two mini burnt basque cheesecakes.
We would also like to compliment the staff for suggesting this dessert as a substitute for their Japanese fluffy cheesecake! The cheesecake had gone past its sell by date. Other stores might not have been as honest and allowed us to get a nasty surprise!
Paula Bistro is located at Carmen Burgos Building, La Salle Avenue Bacolod City
