The Girl + The Bull: "Yeah, you found us"

After a tiring flight from Singapore, we opted to have dinner near our house. We've been hearing a lot of good reviews so we wanted to try it ourselves. My husband called a day earlier to reserve at The Girl and the Bull. The restaurant is quite hard to find - from Aguirre Ave just go straight to the end, past El Grande Ave. The restaurant is just few meters from the intersection, right side - situated inside a hostel (no sign). Upon entering, you will be greeted with this message on the front door:


I love the ambiance of this restaurant - black & white flooring, paintings, chalkboards, nice lighting, glass-like seats and unique decors. It's a small restaurant so make sure to reserve a table beforehand. They have limited but interesting dishes on their menu.

We started with our Tarragon Tea.

For starters, we ordered the Wild Arugula salad. I loved it! Unfortunately, we weren't able to eat the bacon since the kids beat us to it.

For the kids, we ordered the Truffle French Fries, which came with a vinegar in an atomizer - very interesting concept.

For main course, we ordered Hanging Tender (Steak with Kimchi Rice and Egg) and the Buttermilk Fried Chicken. The Steak was flavorful but the meat was a bit tough/chewy. The Kimchi Rice was also good but could be better with a dash of Dashida (Korean beef seasoning).

My eldest son was so hungry and kept following up on the buttermilk Fried Chicken. Good thing it didn't disappoint him. It has 3 large chicken portions. The meat was juicy with yummy (little spicy according to my son) and crispy skin.

For desserts, we ordered the Faux Twix and Vanilla Ice Cream. Oh I loved the Faux Twix. It doesn't look very appealing but once you've tried it, you won't stop til it's finished! I love the perfect mix of all the ingredients - just superb! My son ordered the Vanilla Ice Cream. It was drizzled with virgin olive oil - a surprisingly flavorful touch. Who would have thought Ice Cream would taste better with it? This is really a good twist to plain old Vanilla Ice Cream.

We will definitely go back to this restaurant. Next time, would love to try either Grass-fed Beef Tenderloin or Blowtorched Rib Eye.
