The trio of chefs are Executive Chef Mikel Alonso, Gerard Bellver and chef co-owner Bruno Oteiza.  The trio serves a modern Spanish and Mexican fusion with influences from San Sebastian and Ferran Adrià at el Bulli.  Here are Biko’s accolades:

The decor

Biko’s dining room has a really warm decor with its colors and white table clothes.  The main dining room was quiet when I arrived then quickly became vibrant as patrons began filling the room.  The service was great and the explanations of the dishes were lot better than Quintonil.

Now, the food.  Biko serves an a la carte menu along with a tasting menu.  I decided to go with the tasting menu because why not?  To be honest, there wasn’t any dish that stood out for me.

The presentation of each dish was the most memorable part of the meal.  The flavors were decent when compared to restaurants in its class.  I usually come into restaurants with no expectations and restaurants usually surpass my expectations.  However, Biko didn’t surpass my expectations.  The dishes were very uninspiring and the creativity was lacking in each dish.  The textures and flavors were mediocre at best.  It didn’t stick out like when I had yakitori at Tokyo’s Piss Alley.  It was pretty disappointing gastronomy experience when compared to Quintonil and Pujol.

Overall, Biko’s food was decent overall, but there was no thought in the progression of the dishes.  There wasn’t any stand out dish or anything very inspiring to rave about.  I would definitely recommend Biko for the experience and for comparison purposes to its counterparts (i.e., Quintonil and Pujol).  However, I personally thought Quintonil and Pujol were much better than Biko.
