Since November 2009, I found myself frequently visiting Le Bistro Vert to hold meetings, parties, and even catch up with my blogging advocacy work. When people ask me why I love that place, here are the reasons why:
1. They offer free Internet access with power plug. This allows me to catch up with work and blog even while doing meetings. As I also do informal consulting session with club members where online hands-on demonstration is necessary, this places makes it easy for me to do it
2. They offer traditional dishes with a twist. This is done by using locally available or produced ingredients that also benefits Filipino farmers. My favorite menu combination as follows:
- Sagada orange, carabao cheese, tomato appetizer
- Arugula, Davao blue cheese & cashew salad
- Spiced pumpkin or organic vegetable minestrone soup
- Inch thick grilled pork chop or walnut & herb crusted sole fillet
3. On weekdays, 5 to 8 pm, cocktails are available on a buy 1 + 1 arrangement. For those who are treating clients and are on a budget, this is one great deal to avail of.
4. They serve Kape Isla Philippine coffee that helps local farmers.
Kape Isla is a seal given by the Philippine Coffee Board. It is a stamp of approval for quality Philippine coffees. If you haven't tried this yet, visit Le Bistro Vert, Fraser Place, Valero Street, Makati City and have a free cup of Kape Isla Philippine coffee. Just mention the code "KapeIsla164" to avail of it. This offer is valid until March 31, 2010.

5. Ideal for parties and small seminars
Le Bistro Vert has a function room that can be used for special events or lectures. If you have a large party happening, the whole place can also be reserved to you. Packages are very negotiable. Tried the place last December 2009 for the Blog4Reviews.com Christmas party and our guests enjoyed it.
6. Le Bistro Vert is a social enterprise and include its network of companies conjointly marketing to communicate their sustainability culture consistently. A simple demonstration of this is the use of ECHOstore products in the rest room of the restaurant. ECHOstore daily care and home products represents small marginalized, cultural communities, creative industry practitioners, women groups and foundations.
