A welcome addition to the growing bistros, cafes and resto-bars in Iloilo City is this seemingly unassuming restaurant at the heart of Smallville Complex along Diversion Road.
The place is called BOURBON STREET inspired by that where-real-fun-never-ends strip of the State of New Orleans in the United States. Where Americans and tourists take part and savor what Bourbon Street has to offer in New Orleans, BourbonIlonggos and those visiting Iloilo can now truly have that same satisfaction and more on our version of the Bourbon Street, Iloilo City's American bistro.
The place offers really good appetizers you would find in the menu's "Nibbles and Bites." From Beer Battered Calamares -- crispy fried squid rings served with Tartar sauce, to the Chicken Fingers -- chicken fillet served with Aioli and the all-original BourbonBuffalo wings -- spicy fried chicken wings with garlic cheese dip, perfect starters towards that perfect satisfying meal.
The place is also home to juiciest and tender-est of Baby Backribs with that distinct touch of barbecue sauce and Bourbon secret marinade reason why it is one of the house specialty.
And the soups and salads? The bistro in Bourbon Street has only the creamiest in mushroom soup (Cream of Mushroom and Celery) with that basil and chili oil touch. Try too yet another house special -- the Bourbon Seafood Chowder, a hearty bowl of choice seafoods in tomato-soup base accented with yes, a touch of Bourbon.
And the freshest in greens in its salads. Try the Tossed Seafood Salad where cold seafood bits are mixed and matched the orange vinaigrette.Bourbon Truly, a perfect match with heavenly taste.
Other must-haves include Bourbon Street originals such as Grilled Salmon Pesto -- fillet of Salmon smeared with pesto,Herbed Fillet of Chicken -- grilled chicken breast with that distinct taste of basil and olive oil, Grilled Beef Tenderloin and the U.S Pepper Steak.
BourbonAll Bourbon Street specialties are served with only the freshest in veggies as side dish and a choice of steamed or garlic rice or either the Parmesan Mashed Potato or Bourbon Street fries.
Bourbon Street also serves the Signature Square Pizza that only uses 100 % Pure Mozzarella and Parmesan Cheese. As promised, this thin crust pizza is all-generous on the gourmet ingredients that has in fact brought the house a "loyal following and is now a House Favorite."
BourbonAll under one roof served in style and a smile from the men and women of Bourbon Street. Working as a team, the Bourbon Street 'brigade' from day one that this restaurant opened its doors has since given the diners good food for that great dining experience.
