It was a few years ago when we celebrated a friend's special birthday in what I would declare as one of the country's best restaurants. Even bolder, I would say that Bawai's is the finest Vietnamese eatery in the greater Manila area.
The word "bawai" is Vietnamese for grandmother. I have posted you a friendly picture of a hackneyed grandmother borrowed from the archives of Snapshots Cambodia. No, none of the owners or staff look anything like the picture you see here. However, it is the simple charm of this old woman that reminded me of Bawai's in Cavite near Tagaytay.
It is with deep regret I failed to snap photos of all the food we ordered that day. It didn't last a long time on the table. Yes, it was THAT good. Kain Pinoy has an archive of food photos as well as a review of Bawai's cuisine.
If you would like to book a reservation at Bawai's Vietnamese Kusina, you may call 0920-9722924. A location map can be found right here.
