The Girl + The Bull

For our wedding anniversary, we decided to finally eat in The Girl + The Bull in BF Paranaque. We've been hearing such good reviews of the place and seeing a lot of posts about it on social media for the longest time.

People say the place is a bit hard to find and we did have to keep our eyes peeled in order to spot their logo on the building's signage.

In fact, the restaurant's name is nowhere to be found from the facade...

Instead, what greets you when you enter the door are the words "Yep! You've found us" as if you've finally come to the end of a treasure hunt... :)

The inside of the restaurant is very minimal, but that's because I think they've recently undergone a renovation. I do love the chairs and the pictures on the wall.

They have a 1-page menu with only 13 items:

What we really wanted to try was their famous Buttermilk Fried Chicken, which is only available every Friday & Saturday. Check out the presentation, half of the plate lang talaga lol! Parang dapat may rice sa kabila noh? ;p

Anyway, it certainly lived up to the hype for me. I loved the flavors, especially that butternut pumpkin sauce. Yummy! :)

Buttermilk Fried Chicken, smoked paprika, balsamic maple syrup, butternut pumpkin, kale (P430)

We also ordered the Grass-Fed Beef Tenderloin and the meat was very soft and tender.

Grass-Fed Beef Tenderloin, blue cheese emulsion, brown butter, squid ink potato puree, maple red cabbage, torched mushrooms, leeks (P530)

We also ordered the Chicken Bibimbap since this was the only rice dish on the menu. I'm not such a fan of bibimbap in general, but hubby absolutely loved it!

Chicken Bibimbap, gochujang, kimchi fried rice, slow-poached egg, black sesame, nori, market vegetables (P410)

Other thoughts:
- All their servers are young 20-something kids (who all seem so sosy hehe)
- They don't have any alcohol / beer
- I absolutely need rice in my life so I was bummed they didn't even have any plain rice
- It was cash only basis when we were there, but again probably because of the renovations
- The place was full when we went, so better make a reservation

Anyway, this place is a definite must-try. Hope to be back to try their other items on the menu. :)

  1. I saw you one time at Pergola mall with your hubby and your kiddos miley and sabe hehehe..I was starstruck..hahahah

    1. Omg next time please do say hi! I don't bite hehe! :)

  2. I need more food trips at BF Homes. There are so many restos opening that I can't seem to keep up with. Read many nice reviews about this place before and I've yet to try it pa. Wala pala sila rice masyado, baka hindi ako mabusog, hehe. :)

    1. Yes dami sa BF! And yes wala sila rice, parang kulang tuloy haha ;p

  3. Lucky you to be able to get a table without reservations. Did you try their dessert? The Faux Twix? Those who work there are mostly college students from La Salle infact Taga Tahanan ata isa dun😄

    1. Carl nagpareserve kami hehe! And no we didn't get na dessert, busog na e. Yes, I think anak ni Mitzi un isang server? :)
