Going to Ristras on December 28 is one of those things that can't be helped. I got the voucher from Deal Grocer and it was supposed to be redeemed well until the end of February 2014. But due to some unknown reason, the restaurant has to close down and the last day to claim the voucher is on December 31st. And since the last Saturday of the year is December 28, that's when we went there.
Ristras was in Fairway Tower along 5th Avenue. It's actually something I used to pass by everytime we go to BGC because it's on the corner left side when the BGC bus officially enters the BGC area.
We got there on a nice and windy afternoon and we just walked from the "closest" bus stop. So we were a bit tired and hungry. The place looks nice, but empty. No customers in sight. No wonder it's closing down.
Since only the staff is around we took some more photos before we ordered.
We ordered a Wet Chilli con Carne Quesadilla and Soft Tacos. :)
The aircon inside was also faulty, so it was quite warm. We chose to sit outside where it's cool and windy.
The food was delicious. The soft taco was filled tons of lettuce, onions, tomatoes, and cheese. The meat inside was juicy. I think we ordered the soft taco with pork. haha I'm not sure what else was inside the taco, but I know I felt very satisfied after finishing off the meal. We ate everything and we were really full afterwards.

Makes me sad that Ristras is closed now.
