I am forever craving for PUTO BUMBONG! It is my all-time favorite kakanin! We lived abroad for many years and everytime I would return to the country, it would be the first thing I'd look for. And though I have tried so many versions of this kakanin, I would only recommend the puto bumbong of Via Mare! And if I may be more specific, the puto bumbong of Via Mare Greenbelt and Via Mare Eastwood are the best....in size, in taste and in the generous serving of niyog, panutsa and cheese. Yes, you have to believe me that not all Via Mare outlets serve the same puto bumbong. For some reason, the serving size in Via Mare Greenhills and Via Mare UP are much smaller than the ones in Greenbelt and Eastwood. You can test it for yourself. 128522 As I write this review, I am craving again...I think I'm turning purple again!128521

Tried their Crisp Adobo Flakes. We ordered garlic rice but they gave us plain rice instead. We reiterated our request for garlic rice. We waited for 15 more minutes. They never replaced our rice. We just asked for knorr seasoning instead.

The Adobo Flakes were just okay for me. Could use more flavor, if you ask me.

Overall experience was just okay for me.

Looking for some home style Filipino food, this place hits the spot. Even if you're a tourist it's a good place to experience typical Filipino fare in a slightly more classy setting.

I tried their tortang alimasag, torta (kind of like an omelette) with crab. Served with rice, vegetable lumpia, and of course banana ketchup.

I fell in love with torta when a friend's family first taught me how to make it. Although that was with beef, so it was first time trying it with crab. While still very good, it was hurt by the fact there were bits of the shell in the torta. Not good.

Service was excellent though. And the price is decent as well. As a simpler Filipino dining spot, this one does well.

Late review. :))

A classic Filipino food place, but with a premium price. What's nice is that they've never scrimped on quality despite the many years they have been in operation.

For dinner, I got the Tiyan ng Bangus Asado meal (P285). The fish was just as every bit flavorful as I would have liked it to be. It was a bit on the pricey side though, and I wasn't really full after eating this.

You can't go wrong with their bibingka and puto bumbong though! Perhaps the only real wrinkle in our visit here was that there were probably more flies buzzing around the place than the number of people dining in. XD they better work on their fly problem.

We had late lunch after a fitting for my best friend's wedding. Headed to EastWood since it was the nearest and had to meet my cousin who'll be coming from Katipunan.

Process of elimination on what food to eat: pasta, sandwich, and in unison we all said RICE. So Via Mare it is!

Most of their food items are good for 2 so we just had to mix and match. We got the following:

Ensaladang Bagnet
Binagoongan
Monggo
Rellenong Talong

My golly this feels like a Sunday lunch with the family right? Anyway, the binagoongan was quite different - the liempo was served separately from the bagoong. Goodie! The bagnet strips were crunchy! Monggo, oh it's too watery 128533 Wasn't able to get much of the rellenong talong but my friend seemed to enjoy it.

We ordered all these for a little over a thousand lang. Pwede!

We either go to Italianni's or Via Mare. My daughter loves their crispy pata hehe ;) As usual, dessert ang importante sa akin - sticky rice and mango or palitaw ;)

Has anyone ever had a craving for that quite familiar Christmas snack only found at dawn after Simbang Gabi and the sad thing is, you're feeling the craving in the summer?

Well, thank God for Via Mare! (And Aristocrat if you must know) 128522

We only go to Via Mare during cravings because they have several food in the menu which would make you rush to the nearest branch.

For this particular visit, I had the Ginisang Monggo (i like my homecooked monggo better 128513), and the tuyo in olive oil with salted egg. That's awesome as usual 128077

But the highlight of my dinner was my dessert --- TADA! Puto Bumbong! 128522128540

Via Mare's version is my favorite because of the generous amount of cheese sprinkled on top of the "kakanin" and the right amount of sweetness of the moscovado sugar and chewiness of the food. It's a perfect escape for when you want to feel Christmas in June... Or November. 128513128077128076

Decided to get coffee after attending a birthday party at this place to also get some puto bumbong fix. Saw palitaw in the menu too!!! 128525128525128525

Their brewed coffee isn't bad at all. While not as aromatic as Illy's, it certainly has that non-commercial taste to it.

The palitaw was seasoned perfectly to my liking, not too sweet. Puto bumbong was great but I like Ferino's more.

We were rooting for Ramen Bar in this raining-like-there's-no-tomorrow afternoon but we have to walk across the Eastwood Mall park and I'm toting a 1yr old super kulit toddler to get there, So we settled here:

Lugaw Toppings
Lomi
Tokwa't Baboy
Grilled pan de sal

PERFECT.

First time my friends and I chose to eat at Via Mare here at Eastwood! Our usual dining choices are Kogi, La Creperie, or Ramen Bar. It was nice to have a change of scenery!

Anyway, I felt like it was an adobo flakes kind of day. The flakes were nice and flossy, so it was easy on the teeth, haha! Kiks ordered the crispy binagoongan, which I should remember to order next time—it was so good! It was crispy, as promised by the menu, and I like that the bagoong comes separately. It's pretty much like ordering lechon kawali with the option to add bagoong.

Minus one star because I found it a tad expensive to charge P290+ for adobo flakes. It came with rice and egg, but no drink? The added service charge brought the order up to a whopping P315 or so! Eep. A little too steep for adobo flakes.
