The way we ate: Rustique Kitchen

Cynthia Flores-Henares and Bianca Henares - The Philippine Star

Chef Bruce Lim serves up comfort food with a Filipino twist at his new restaurant, Rustique Kitchen in Makati City.

An American born Filipino-Chinese chef and a graduate of the prestigious Le Cordon Bleu in London, Chef Bruce made a name for himself in the Philippines as a TV personality and restaurateur. He is currently the host of Asian Food Channel's The Boss which showcases his take on modern Filipino dishes.

At Rustique Kitchen, he promises to treat your taste buds to an explosion of flavors in a comfortable, homey ambience.

"We're serving comfort food," he explains. "We don't want to intimidate our customers. We'd like to make them feel right at home."
