When Paul and I got an invite to celebrate Thanksgiving last August, we excitedly headed to Damaso Residencia which was the private residence of our dinner host, Chef Bambi Sy Gobio. Chef Bambi is also the talented lady behind the restaurant Restaurante Pia Y Damaso in Greenbelt 5. No thanks to color coding, we were the last couple to arrive and luckily, we got there just in time as dinner was about to start. Talking about good timing!
What a feast! I couldn't take in another bite after having two servings of turkey and lots of baked fish. Of course, Chef Bambi wasn't done yet. After offering us with coffee or tea, out came a parade of freshly baked cakes which looked so good! Sadly, all I did was to take small bites of each and left the rest of the slice to Paul who happily polished our dessert plate sparkling clean.
Instead of slaving ourselves in the kitchen with zero know-how in roasting (much less stuffing) a turkey, I think I'll just make a reservation at Damaso Residencia for Chef Bambi to work her magic for our Thanksgiving family dinner. Chef Bambi can do private dinners for about Php 1,500 per head for groups of 10-12. You need to make a reservation way in advance and she can customize the menu for you too.
