First Stop – Bigby’s Centrio Ayala Mall

Bigby’s was first introduced in CDO in December 8, 1998 and now has 7 branches across the archipelago. The menu, the interior design and service style were created to position the concept midway between fine dining and fast-casual dining.

Guests were served Bigby’s signature dishes, the CDO Sinuglaw – a certified Bigby’s favorite! An award winning “sinugbang baboy” and “isdang kilawin” recipe with a twist by adding “dilis” toppings.
