You Can Get Cafe Bola Dishes Delivered to Your Doorstep
Plus other dishes by chef Margarita Fores!
(SPOT.ph) Remember Cafe Bola? The Margarita Fores (of Cibo, Lusso, and Grace Park)-owned cafe was a hit in the early 2000s, during which they served Filipino-inspired eats such as bangus mousse, kamias shake, and rice bowls. Here’s the good news: you can enjoy a few of Cafe Bola’s specialties again through Cibo di Marghi Signature Caterer. They have a number of dishes by the chef available—including specials from Cafe Bola, such as their Spicy Tuyo + Fried Egg Rice Toppings (P250), Adobo Flakes + Fried Egg Rice Toppings (P250), and Penne Chorizo (P975/serves four to five). These dishes are available for pickup from The Commissary at Whitespace from 11 a.m. or 3 p.m., or delivery if you’re in the Makati or Taguig area—note that there's a 2 p.m. cut-off the day before.
Don’t miss out on Cibo di Marghi’s other dishes, either. Chef Fores has an especially great handle on pasta, so you can’t go wrong with the Spaghettini “Alla Checca” (P900/serves four to five) with mozzarella, marinated tomatoes, basil, extra-virgin olive oil, and parmesan shavings, or the Classic Beef Ragu Lasagna (P1,250/serves four to five). For mains, you can treat your family to the Salt Crust Baked Norwegian Salmon Fillet (P2,250/approximately 1.5 kilograms) or the Braised and Grilled “Boneless” Short Rib (P6,500/approximately 1.5 kilograms). They’ve even got Grace Park’s Lamb Adobo (P780/serves two to three) and Carabao Butter Chicken (P625), as well as breads like the Dinner Rolls (P105/15 pieces) and Sourdough Pandesal (P150/15 pieces). And if you prefer to cook on your own, you’ll be happy to know that they stock up on ingredients like Adlai Pearls (P200/750 grams), Pampanga Taba ng Talangka (P550/220 grams), and Batwan Concentrate (P180/220 grams).
Cibo di Marghi is the catering venture of Chef Margarita Fores, who was also heralded as Asia’s Best Female Chef in 2016.
