Nasa Titang edad ka na ba pero di mo pa rin tanggap?
Lahat ba ng ka-edad mo nasa pangatlong anak na o kakakasal lang?

Try mo dito sa Isla Cafe/Advent Manila Hospitality Group/May isa pa silang name.

Kitams? Di ka mahahanap ng Tita crew dito. Di mo nga alam pangalan ng lugar eh.

Low key Tita hang-out.
Di tulad ng Mary Grace na pag nakita ka dun na may kinakaing cheese roll eh siguradong may bitbit ka ring baby. Hindi food baby. Baby. As in yung maliit na tao. Habam-buhay mong responsibilidad. Dapat siguraduhin mong maging maayos na tao. Hindi yung iniidolo si Marcos.

Eh gusto mo lang naman ng cheese roll!!

Ayun.

5 kami. Bill namin 1040. Isa sa amin doble pa order kasi matakaw siya. Pero yung food serving pang-construction worker.

Sulit siya. Pramis. At masarap naman. Hindi blow your mind ha. Pero price range is 150-250.

Yung tubig, unli.
Medyo maliit yung lugar pero di pa rin kami makita ng servers.
Nasa may daanan siya sa loob ng mall kaya hindi ganun ka-intimate. Pero sobrang lowkey yung design na parang bahay ng Tita mo sa probinsya kaya di ka mapapansin.

Halina mga medj Tita, dito tayo magtago.
Mag dala ka na rin ng cheese roll, pero please lang, no side of baby.

Just had dinner here earlier. We were supposed to dine at Healthy Shabu Shabu (for the nth time lol) but we were on the waiting list na so we just decided to try Isla Cafe which is almost infront of Shabu Shabu.

128156 Ube Halaya: whyyyyy 🙁 the texture felt like jello huhuhu it doesn't have the feel and even the taste of ube. Sayang pretty pa naman.

🌶 Bicol Express served with a teeny tiny atsara. It was okay. I like that it has the right level of spiciness to it while retaining the delicate coconut milk taste.

127830 Pares: it was meh. I mean Isla Cafe boasts that they have Manila's best puto, pansit and pares but the latter was really naaaahhhh... I am not particularly fond of eating Pares but I tried a good one at Marikina near the City Hall...

127863 Sago't Gulaman. Sweet for my liking.

The serving time took sometime too. The cafe is undermanned. Will probably not return here again as it was just okay.

You will be definitely go back for their good food. You have an array of Filipino dish choices from puto, Sapin-sapin, arroz caldo, pansit and many more. An hacienda type dining that will satisfy your taste of different Filipino food in an al-fresco type and patio ambiance.

Service is good.

Pinakbet at Bagnet (185php)
Pure Ripe Mango Shake (155php)

FOOD:
•Pinakbet at Bagnet
- usual yummy bagnet
- pinakbet was salty and more bitter than it should be
•Pure Ripe Mango Shake
- bland
- a little unripe

SERVICE:
The crew were very accomodating at first. They call customers "Senyorita/Senyorito". Nakakatuwa.

When we asked for the bill, they gave it right away. We were waiting for our change, it was taking them so long, so my mom decided to just leave and leave the change because it seemed like di nila alam na may sukli pa. Mom and my ate left the table already but dad insisted we should get the change so we went to the cashier to personally get our change back. My dad didnt leave even single peso as tip because he was annoyed by that.

PLACE:
I dont know if its called kiosk, it's just a small place without walls.
I commend the design though. It's very Filipino.

I love good finds! Specially when it comes to food. I went to Robinsons Magnolia to try Magnolia Flavor House but the place was packed and honestly, there was nothing interesting on the menu. I walked around and saw this small kiosk with a few tables. I was attracted by the smell. I ordered pansit lucban with ube puto and it was fantastic! Better than Buddy's! I also tried their chicken inasal batchoy and it was phenomenal. I was previously searching for good batchoy but couldn't find one. Finally! Its big taste in a small kiosk. You have to wait though for around 30mins to get seated because they have limited tables but they call you senyorita and senyorito so I was happy to wait :) The price is reasonable and the serving is big. The pancit lucban is 185 pesos.

I can't decide where to eat for merienda and since this was my mom's request, I obliged. 128517

We ordered the Arroz Caldo, Binawang na Sotanghon and the Lemon, Lime Mint Shake.

For such rainy and cold weather, the arroz caldo was just perfect. Paired with a complimentary puto, this warmed our appetites and very delectable Filipino dish. As my caption said, "move over ramen, it's time for arroz caldo." To my surprise, I really enjoyed it. And learned, Isla Cafe is by XO46 Bistro! 128077128079

The Binawang na Sotanghon was okay too, very filling for merienda and the refreshing drink was something I did not regret ordering. For P95 per glass, we had it good enough for two of us to share.

I wouldn't mind coming back for another Pinoy merienda. 128077128079128513127858128523
