A week after the crowning moment, let me take you back to the Binibining Pilipinas Coronation Night and compare how my prediction list fare with the final results.
From the time BPCI announced their final 40 Candidates, there are already rumors on who's in and who's not.
But just like any other beauty pageants, there are candidates who really stands-out and exudes that winning aura and there are those who just peaked at the right time.
From the get go, I already have my favorite girls and from a careful deliberation of the Judges and the BPCI, here is the top 15 finalist:
11 Laura Lehmann
1 Julian Aurine Flores 22 Bianca Guidotti
3 Joana Angelica Romero 25 MJ Lastimosa 8 Pia Wurtzbach 4 Parul Shah
23 Nichole Manalo
16 Zahara Soriano 35 Yvethe Santiago 14 Emma Tiglao
20 Kenneth Santiago 13 Kris Janson 27 Hannah Sison 19 Mae Liezel Ramos
Ok, I got 9 out of 15, not bad.
After the dreadful final Question & Answer portion the winners were announced:
Ok admittedly, this review is biased in some sort since the Owner/Chef is a a good friend.
Located near the Barangay Hall of Bilibiran in the Municipality of Binangonan - which is my hometown, one wandering soul will not expect to discover a food haven in this residential area.
The place has a good ambiance perfect for tropa hangouts, romantic dinner for couples and they also have a videoke room for group of friends who wants to relax and chill out after a long day of work.
They boast a wide range of selections on their menu from Pastas, Sandwiches to the more complicated Steaks and all time fave Silogs.
One of their Best-Sellers is their version of Bulalo Steak that will leave you in sheer delight. For 148php, it is a hefty serving of Bulalo smothered in a sinful special gravy with mashed potato or buttered corn as side dish. 1-2 people can dig in to this goodness.
Beef Salpicao is my personal favorite, a serving of fine cuts of sirloin Beef with mushroom and garlic, just from one bite, you will taste the tenderness of meat and the flavors infuse on this dish. For 128php it is already good for 2-3 people.
