What more now that I've relocated to another country?!
I think I need a whole new scrapbook as everything might not fit in my old journal anymore. Anyway, at the last page of my journal, I have a list. This list is something that I love referring back to once in a while. My goal is to visit at least one country per continent in my lifetime. So far I've covered two thus I have 5 more to go. Knowing that I won't be able to travel far this year, I went through the list to see which are the "doable" destinations.
Imagine my glee when I found out that Bawai's has opened a new branch in White Plains -- a very accessible area right at the heart of Metro Manila!
Vietnam. The land of pho and banh mi! Located north of Singapore, Vietnam is just a quick 2 hour and 50 minute hour flight away from the Lion City. I love how clean and light Vietnamese food is which is pretty much my main motivation for wanting to visit the country.
A couple of years back, my family was able to dine at Bawai's in Tagaytay where we were able to experience authentic Vietnamese cuisine. Since then, Bawai's has been our go-to place whenever my parents just wants a light and delicious meal. I got to admit though that with the crazy traffic in Manila, travelling to Tagaytay can sometimes turn into a long road ordeal. We just hate having to sit in the car for two hours before we can finally breathe the cool air of Tagaytay.
Thus, during my recent visit home, my family wasted no time and scheduled a day to check Bawai's out. Driving along White Plains, it won't be hard to spot Bawai's as you'll see the green vertical signage at the right side of the road. Bawai's is located in the same commercial complex as Flaming Wings and Crave Burger. The only challenge is trying to find a good parking spot especially during the evening and on weekends.
The entire restaurant was packed with families enjoying their Sunday lunch the same way we were. We just noticed that the acoustics of the restaurant was not so good that at some point, we were having trouble hearing each other as practically everyone was talking all at once. Wish they'd find a solution of this soon.
Nonetheless, we're so happy that we don't have to travel far now to enjoy Bawai's Vietnamese Kitchen.
Visit Bawai's Vietnamese Kitchen at 79 Katipunan Avenue, White Plains, Quezon City. Call them at 885-1445 / 442-8874.
