Truly a hidden gem in White plains! Thanks to my cousin, to dining apps, and to my fellow foodies, I found Bawais. Do not be fooled by their unattractive signage, go on and dine there. 😉
The restaurant is fine dining in nature and the place was with lush greens and has a tropical theme. We would have sat al fresco but we were warned of mosquitoes. I hope they can fix that.
Anyway, the ambiance was very nice. I like the style and even the menu was designed according to the theme. I loved those small details!
Fastforward to the food – I super loved the double grilled pork belly! And I mean I loved it and could have eaten it again the next day! It was super soft and tasty! I can taste the lemongrass but there were also other herbs that were just combined perfectly. The mushroom and egg pie was also lovely. The serving was big aside from it being really yummy which gave us our money’s worth. I would definitely go back to order that.
The place had low light and I could not get a better picture. But who cares I will eat there again and just update the photo! 😅
We ordered the fresh lumpia and the seafood noodle soup as well. The noodle soup for sharing is only good for one if you are not eating anything else. The noodle soup is ok. I have eaten better noodle soups though. My mom said she liked the soup and said the taste is not overpowering. She also liked the fresh lumpia. I believe in many different tastes so those two may be good as well but I’m sure not as amazing as the pork. Lol.
I ordered the dessert made of pandan and mung bean and being a stickler for anything chewy in texture, I liked it a lot.👍 The dessert was priced around 65 so it is affordable. I liked the sweetness of the coconut syrup on top.
The entree is priced around 300-450 and I am willing to pay that for the pork belly. 😂 We saw that the restaurant has a branch in Tagaytay so maybe we will eat there next time.
Overall it was a great experience – ambiance and food worked out great. 😁
