Christmas Eve dinner used to be something that families prepared for weeks in advance. I still have fond memories of lechon and turkey at my Lola Paying’s.
My lola is no longer with us but I can still have a great Christmas spread for my family by ordering dishes from one of our favorite restaurants.

Hard to believe Cibo is 20 years old this year!
I still remember the first time I ever tried Cibo. It was 1997 in Glorietta.
Not this one—
but it was located at an open space which is now the 2nd level walkway to the Landmark.
It was phenomenal because it served affordable, delicious, Italian food and though they served it fast, you can’t really call it fast food.
I even remember my first order—chicken sandwich. To this day it’s still my favorite. Cibo was also first to introduce red grape shape to the country.
Everyone has a favorite Cibo dish! Ours is the beef tenderloin with garlic and rosemary. What’s yours?
Now for its 20th year anniversary, Cibo’s chef and founder Margarita Fores brings Italian street food to their newest branch at SM Aura.
“My travels to Italy aren’t complete without enjoying their street food,” said Margarita. “From then until now, I’ve taken delight in a wide range of pizze, panini, gelati and a lot of golden fried food, especially since they are reminiscent of the ones we have here. On Cibo’s 20th year, I am proud to share with you my love and my take on some of Italy’s beloved street food, Cibo di Strada.
Her special menu includes ARROSTICINI, which hails from the Abruzzo region in Italy. Arrosticini is skewered beef tenderloin cubes, spiked with chili flakes, and grilled to perfection.
FRITTO MISTO is a staple in all coastal areas of Italy. Think deep-fried shrimp, squid, zucchini, eggplant, and lemon in a light, crisp batter with special dip.
PIZZA FRITTA are Neapolitan deep-fried pizza dough pockets filled with tomato, mozzarella, and basil in groviera cream
It also comes in smoked ham, bel paese, mozzarella, and fontina in groviera cream.
For your sweet tooth, there’s Nutella banana pizza fritta.
PANINO PORCHETTA is grilled panino sandwich stuffed with slices of porchetta (spiced roast pork) that is typically Roman with tangy apple, pear mostarda, and peppery arugula.
ARANCINI, a Sicilian staple, are deep-fried risotto balls stuffed with three kinds of fillings:
Bologna-style beef, pork ragù and mozzarella
Al telefono—a blend of tomatoes, melting mozzarella, parmigiano and basil
and a mix of porcini mushrooms, gorgonzola and mozzarella.
Cibo di Strada is exclusively available at CIBO SM Aura, while Pizza Fritta is available in all branches.
Promo runs from June 26 to July 27, 2017, Mondays to Thursdays only.
Enjoy a 20% discount on a single order of any of our pasta dishes (for dine in and take out), when you order Pizza Fritta.
I still remember the first time I tasted Cibo back in 1997. A friend of mine was raving about it and took me to Margarita Forés’s first store in Glorietta.
It wasn’t even a real store then, it was set up in an open area on the 2nd level, leading to what became the walkway to Landmark.
Cibo was in fact the first open area eatery in the mall. After that everyone pretty much followed.
Eighteen years and several branches later, Cibo is still very much part of our family’s lifestyle, or should I say, taste buds.
Margarita Forés catered our wedding in November 2000 and continues to cater/host our family’s birthday parties. Now even my kids have their Cibo favorites.
As Cibo turns 18 this August, they are offering dishes at Php 18 only when you order its partner dish at regular price. Check out the partnered dishes below.
