The Way We Ate - CIBO

By She Said

Meals are so central and important to our everyday lives. It is the time we come together not just to share food but also to share ourselves with those we have our meals with.

I love trying out new restaurants, but there are days when all I’m craving for are the tried and tested, familiar favorites on my list. 

CIBO holds a special place in my heart. I’ve had many memorable meals here. Family celebrations, lunches with good friends, and lots of heart to heart talks with my daughter over bowls of steaming pasta and the customary Tiramisu and Panna Cotta. Their branch at the Corte de Las Palmas at Alabang Town Center has been around since 2000. And since it’s conveniently located close to where I live, it’s always our default place to go to whenever we're craving comfort food.

Richard Dela Victoria, ATC Branch Manager, has been with CIBO for 14 years now. He’s one of the reasons we keep coming back. Warm and friendly service, we always feel pampered and at home. On a side note, Richard’s son whom I’ve had the pleasure to meet on one occasion is a dead ringer for Kris Aquino’s youngest son, Baby James, haha :)

 Ferdie. Chef Gemron. Jose. Roger- No matter how far apart our visits are, happy, smiling faces always greet us whenever we drop by. Evident of service with a heart.

 Tegamino Mozarella- grilled cheese, tomatoes, anchovies, basil, served with thin Sardinian flat bread.

Penne Al Telefono- stewed tomatoes, mozarella, white cheese, basil, cream. I've tried to recreate this several times at home, but no one does it better like Cibo.

Insalata Di Mare- shrimp, squid, crab, greens, basil pesto, alfalfa, lemon vinaigrette. Good to know that 75% of Cibo's fresh produce is organic & naturally grown.

Pizza Fiori Di Zucca- mozarella, squash flowers, extra virgin olive oil.

Linguini All'Alfonso- shrimps, chives, tomato, cream, chili peppers.

Tagliata Di Manzo- beef tenderloin roast topped with fontina & tomatoes.

Gelato Tiramisu- we just discovered this, yummy!

Mango Panna Cotta- perfect sweet ending to our meal.
I don’t claim to be a food expert, I’m just a food enthusiast, really. But what makes every meal special is good food coupled with excellent service, and CIBO consistently delivers each and every time.
