Crepes and Pies for Dinner at Tymad Bistro
Can you imagine eating crepes and pies for dinner? Not as dessert but we are talking about these "dessert" items as main courses. Well, this French Bistro in Maria Luisa Road has somehow surprised me. Tymad Bistro which means Good House in Celtic is a French-owned restaurant that prides itself on making the best crepes and galettes in Cebu. Crepes are the typical desert pancakes that we are all used to while a galette is its savory sister that mainly use buckwheat. The galettes are filled with ingredients used more in sandwiches than in crepes like ham, mushrooms, egg, cheese, ratatouille, or any other protein.
Since I love to taste new things, I made sure that we get a galette when I first ate here. The galette comes in several combinations with some unique names like Ham, Vegetarian (Egg, ratatouille), Farmer (Chicken, Mushroom, béchamel), Rustique (Tomatoes, Carabao Cheese, smoked pork loin, basil), Tymad (Burger, ham, egg, cheese, tomato sauce, mushroom) and many more. There are so many choices and you will never go wrong any of them. Price range is from 190 to 380 per order.
To make our dinner more "unusual", we also had a Quiche Lorraine as a second dish. A Quiche is a savory pie crust filled with meat and cheese. The Quiche Lorraine is a bacon and cheese pie served with a side salad at 190 pesos.
Tymad Bistro also serves croissants, omelets and other egg creations, salads, and desserts.
Tymad is one of the nicest looking restaurants in Cebu. The walls are decorated with abstract paintings and between the walls and the couch are several books written in French.
My meal at Tymad was indeed memorable. It was a gastronomic learning experience about french cuisine and the different possibilities when it comes to cooking. I always enjoy places where I can partake on interesting and delicious culinary creations for the first time. Will I come back to Tymad? Definitely! This is a fine place where I can take good friends for some intellectual conversation and also, should one day I will crave for crepes or galettes, I know where to go. ;)
