Bistro Selera experience, a true taste of Mindanao flavor.
Bistro Selera is a newly opened bistro mixed Davao born branch of Filipino Family owned restaurant located at the Fountain side 2nd level strip of SM Lanang Premier's casual and fine dining restaurants with a view of the 122 meter musical fountain, the first of its kind in Mindanao and the longest in the country. The first branch is Kusina Selera, a cozy restaurant located at Paseo de Legaspi in Pelayo St., Davao City.
According to COO Googie Sanga and Chairman Marivi Laurel, bistro is mainly casual dining in individual servings. For Bistro Eating, it is a style of cooking that involves using fresh, local Davao ingredients to produce delicious, and nutritionally healthy recipes that will stand out locally but also internationally.
The man behind the 18 dishes is reputed chef Jaypee Landingin who carefully chooses davao ingredients that will not just satisfy our taste buds but thoroughly prepared uniquely cooked dishes with true Mindanao taste and flavor.
