lunchdate at mary grace cafe

I have been meaning to try Cafe Mary Grace but never found the time and the budget for it. Good thing I finally managed to give this restaurant a try when I went on a playdate with my mum friends from my old work and their tots last month. One of my friend, Moi, also wanted to eat at the place so it was our hands down choice for lunch that day.

I simply love pasta and meatballs so I opted for their Pasta Ametriciana With Italian Meatballs {Php232}, while one of my friends ordered their Vongole Pasta {sea foods}. In addition, we also ordered a pitcher of their Homemade Iced Tea {Php 246} and an order of their Italian Sausage pizza {Php440}. I simply love everything! ^_^

I also love the cafe. Everything is simply beautiful, from the whimsical hanging decorations in the ceiling, to the lovely notes in the equally wonderful table set-up, to the mismatched plates! I also love that they have these little hooks under the table where you stow away your belongings while dining it, and attentive staff, to boot! I also particularly love that they have all-natural, no-preservatives premium ingredients in their food. Apart from that, the food is simply divine and for those who have bigger appetite, am sure they will also appreciate the generous serving of their meals.

We had a very pleasurable lunchdate, feasting on our delectable meals while exchanging wonderful stories and trying to catch up on each other’s lives. It has been ages, after all, since we last saw each other.

It was a good thing the little men occupied themselves playing games while the mums finished our delightful meals. I thoroughly enjoyed our Cafe Mary Grace experience and I give this place 5 thumbs up! I do hope we can eat there again real soon.

Eng Bee Tin’s Hopia Ube

food musings, Chinese food, comfort food

I chanced upon an Eng Bee Tin branch on my recent visit to Manila and I got one of these Hopia Ube packs. These are my faves and I seldom eat them now as there are no local stores that sell them in our city. I had to stop the urge to hoard, so I just got me a couple of hopia packs in different flavors. As I queue towards the till, I saw these very interesting tikoy rolls, I never tried those but they sure looks very promising, so I got a pack, too!

I opened my Ube-flavored hopia today and paired it with a mug of steaming coffee for one perfect breakfast combo! I enjoyed it to bits and now that I think about it, I should’ve horded a couple more packs so that I can get to eat them for a while longer! ^_^
