I rarely eat in BF Homes even though it’s near me. A long line of restaurants along Aguirre Avenue, their main road, has popularized BF Homes as a foodie spot of the south, as long as a place to get drinks during weekends. But I have never been fond of going here, I am not sure why. I go here mostly because of my friends, or because of some function or another, like now.
My friend’s surprise birthday party was here and we got here around 9pm for some dinner, dessert and totally ended up skipping on the drinks. It would be quite unfair to rate this fully because I didn’t try their mains, just the appetizers and desserts. I shall be basing this on whatever I tried.
We ordered the artichoke and something dip, which was basically a cheesy dip for a pesto soaked bread. Which was actually good. But you know me, I like cheese. The calamares was so-so. Not really fond of it generally, and as my friend complained, they served the calamares with a marinara sauce, as opposed to the white mayo sauce in the menu. My friends ordered fish and chicken with corresponding pasta sides, which they said were good. But the soup. Ahhhhh. A fresh zucchini soup, they said which was the delay, was served an HOUR after it was ordered. Really now?
But the greatest failure of the night were the 2 of the 3 desserts we ordered. We ordered pannacotta, tiramisu and a molten lava cake. Pannacotta syrup toppings were OVERLY SWEET, and worsened by the sickeningly sweet pannacotta as well. My best description for it was, condensed milk and gelatin mixed together. The molten lava cake tasted like cheap chocolate cake 😦 But I do have hard time finding a good chocolate cake anyway. The tiramisu was so-so. Nothing brilliant, but my friend liked it. All in all, it was sad food all the way. I am all for supporting local restos and start-ups since I want to eventually have my own. But yikes, not with food like this 😦
