Needing some coffee shop so we can start making our Modular Compilation Requirement, me my Culinary Classmates end up here. It was Nakamura's idea, my vote was to go to Starbucks instead. I wished I pushed the idea. 128531

Upon entering, place was packed. No one really attended us. The servers were all busy and just rude. We found ourselves a table and then ordered. The idea here is the server gets your order, then gets your money on the spot then delivers your food and the change. No receipt. The server gave me the wrong change actually. And he even argued with me. I even have to open my calculator app to show him that I was correct. 128531

Then the food came, my coffee tasted like awfully mixed 3in1 coffee. (Again, I used to be a barista. Please don't F with my coffee!) 128548

The Carbonara tasted like a reduced mushroom soup-- straight from the can. 128544

This place is awful.

And they have other branches!

Blimey! Why in the world-- will not go back here! Ever! 128565

I was drag along in the streets of Mendiola, a famous cafe, where college students flock and study and eat and hangout.

Upon entering, I immediately saw the tablets on the table, free for everyone who wants to play, which is kind of cool. 128077

There are 4 refrigerators beside the counter, catering different flavors of cakes, big and small, and if you're a cake person, you'd probably find peace right then and there. There are enough seats for everyone who wants to chill and just eat good food. I heard this store is busy because of college students, but since we got here on a semestral break, I think it was just a good timing.

My friend helped me ordered Sardines Pasta in oil while he had Pesto pasta and chicken. Their pasta comes with a panini on the side. I was lucky, that my friend knew the owner of the store Mr. Jodi, and we had a little chitchat while waiting for our food.

We were just having a great conversation, when finally the food arrive. The pasta were surprisingly placed in a big plate, not knowing it was actually shared for two people, but I know I can finish it in minutes. And thanks to Mr. Jodi for giving each of us a slice of red velvet cheesecake and a glass of lychee flavored iced tea. Now, I don't think I can finish all of it anymore.

The sardines pasta was my fave, oh and did I mention it's Fettuccini; and although I love pesto, theirs wasn't the oily kind of type, but it's good too. The cake tasted okay, I only had few bites because I'm too full already from the abundant serving of the sardines pasta. The panini was perf for the pasta and def good for sharing.

We had a great time meeting the owner, eating big servings of pasta, and enjoying the ambiance of the cafe.

I'd probably go back to try other cakes, plus I heard their signature salad and carbonara is superb!
