It's Friday and there's much reason to be in love, right?

Despite the crazy, hectic, busy, demanding day brought about by our extra workaholic clients, I found joy knowing that at least I am on field work for the day! After working on my personal errands in the morning, I had to fulfill work duties, last hoorah before the weekend yay!

After attending a meeting at Ayala Avenue, we went straight to Greenbelt to do an ocular inspection at Museum Cafe. It was actually my first time to visit the place so I was excited to try something new for the day.

Upon arrival at Greenbelt, I checked out looloo to find out where the cafe is located. We then walked from Greenbelt 3, passed through the gardens and chapel towards Greenbelt 4 and near the Ayala Museum, we saw the Museum Cafe.

At first look, it got that intimidating and quite high end feel but the moment you step inside the restaurant, you will actually be greeted by accommodating and entertaining wait staff that would assist you with all your concerns.

The interiors of the restaurant were really admirable. I loved how classy yet welcoming the vibe was inside. The ceiling decors looked really unique and fresh, with the large sea shell shaped centerpiece that caught my attention. The interior lighting gave the place a cozier look that is actually one of the reasons why people do get attracted to check out the place. There were plants inside that also gave it more color. The furniture had their own character too. From marble tables to rattan chairs, the eccentricity in the design gave the place its unique and original vibe.

After our inspection and meeting with the store's marketing person, I learned that the restaurant is actually divided into two different brands, first is the Museum Cafe and the other one is the Kabila Cafe, witty right?

Museum Cafe serves mostly international American cuisine while Kabila Cafe serves our very own Filipino entrees. I got the chance to browse through the menu and I got to say that it's appealing in all its sense. Prices range from 250php and above and based on the servings that I saw, it was worth it. They even have weekend boutique buffets that I want to try whenever I get the chance to.

OK, so as it was just past lunch time when we got there earlier, we were still a bit full and just ordered some refreshments. I wanted to try something healthy but refreshing, like what my best friend always tells me so I ordered the Lime Crush for almost P240.00.

It had fresh Thai Basil, Lemongrass stirrer and some soda in it. When it arrived, It looked a bit weird with its totally green color but I was also excited to taste it because it looked so fresh! I liked how nicely it was presented to. Look at that creatively placed lemongrass stirrer, nice, right? OK, for the taste, I was happy and satisfied! The strong tasted of the basil mixed with the soda made the drink so refreshing and filling! I also loved how the lemongrass gave it a bit of a sweet taste, balancing the flavors altogether!

My colleagues ordered their Cafe Americano, Almond Lychee and Dalandan Juice and all of these were presented and served really nicely, as if you'll find it hard to drink them even if you're so thirsty already.

OK, I liked this place and it's already a certainty that I'll check them out again some other time!

We decided to have dessert after our heavy dinner just to continue our chit-chat since its been years that I haven't see my friend all the way from Davao.
The waiter suggest to try this flan,cheesecake with a cocoa base cake and it was OK and the frap? it was nice but SB is better.
Thanks for the free Choc-nut.

Went here with my friend since she already tried the food here.. It’s situated right beside the Ayala Museum in Greenbelt along Makati Avenue. They serve Asian and Western Cuisine. Great food and excellent customer service. Nice ambiance too! 128522

Although the staff are all smiles and even if I like the vibe of the place, I will judge this Resto based on my food experience... Which was crap. 128561

Met up with some HS friends and some new found friends for the despidida of our friend James who's going abroad to pursue a masteral degree (ikaw na haha). Haven't seen most of these people in ages so it was a welcome treat.

Since I was hungry, ordered the grilled cheese on rye bread for dinner. Lo and behold when it arrived, it was huge. So I though, "sulit pala 350 ko" then I saw the inside... Basically it was 85% bread then some cheese. Uhm, Kargador na ako sa pier guys? Medyo wild128517

The bread itself was also too chewy. Don't remember rye bread being that tough. And after 2 bites my jaw ached from chewing the bread so I decided to take out 90% of the bread and east mostly the cheese inside... Which tasted meh. I think I was better off buying toast and cheese whiz. I bet I would've enjoyed that more 128546

At Least the French fries side was good. It tasted like KFC fries which I liked. But I'm still judging that sandwich. For that price I could've eaten a lot of better dishes for sure. Never order it 128561

Thank god the friends I was with were good company or else that dinner would've been a disaster. 128557

I feel like any restaurant attached to a museum is going to be cool - this place was no exception.

We ordered all the dim sum options and they were pretty good. Duck rolls are the thing most worth trying in my opinion...

I have always thought that this place was so expensive so I never tried until my high school friends invited me to have dinner in this place. I looooooove this place now. It is actually worth the price because of the ambiance, food, service! I also study in their cafe! 128527

M Cafe's grilled cheese sandwich is THE BEST. But you have to be hungry when you eat it. It's super heavy!

Museum Cafe's The Impossible Cake. Moist dark and dense chocolate cake, drenched in a buttery-sweet syrup and topped with velvety, silky Leche Flan. Loved the play of flavors and textures from the bittersweet, buttery chocolate cake base that perfectly balanced the custardy-caramely-creamy sweet leche flan.

Impossibly good and impossibly sinful. Perfectly paired with the crunchy caramelized pili nuts that came as sidings and a cup of M Cafe's Illy coffee.

It was after tasting it that I recalled trying something similar with the same name and taste from Gustare Kitchen (by Ginny Roces-de Guzman). I asked our M Cafe's server if they out-sourced this sweet delight from Gustare. Our server answered me evasively..hmmm... No problem. Regardless if M Cafe did bake this in their kitchen or if they indeed out-sourced it from Gustare, this was one hell of an awesome pastry. Glad that it's now available at M Cafe.

Highly recommended to sweet-tooth foodies and to foodies who love chocolate cake with a sinful twist!

The Bad Experience:
I celebrated my 28th Birthday at this place last night with my friends, booked a table for 20 people. The one coordinating with me was Dexther (Sales Associate), he was very helpful and pleasant. He told me that since it's my birthday and it's a saturday there will be a DJ playing that night, that's why I immediately told him that I will push through with my reservation and agreed to pay the consumable rate that was offered. Come saturday, I was there before 8pm with my husband, no DJ was there even right before we left at 11pm. So we decided to just transfer to another place where it's more lively.

I felt fooled! It was very disappointing.

But on a lighter note, I was happy that Dexther addressed my concerns and was able to find a way to make it a win-win situation.

The Food:
It was okay. But the one that I really liked the most was their Honey duck rolls (that looks like fresh lumpia).128077

List of food that I ordered:
1. Sweet fire chicken wings (not that spicy but good)
2. Szechuan-style crispy lamb ribs (good)
3. Crab + polonchay dumplings (so-so)
5. Gambas (i liked it)
6. Crystal prawn dumplings (good)
7. Pizza Margherita
8. Honey Duck Rolls (very good, all my guests liked it)
9. Crispy Tapa and Pork Belly Pica pica (not bad)
10. Tandoori Pizza

Museum Cafe boasts of a complete repertoire of dishes. They serve American, Italian and of course, Asian dishes. Their dimsum is, I think, one of their best sellers and indeed one of the best I've tried. Each dimsum dish (if I recall it right, we got the crab, flower shiu mai and sharks fin) is served in two layers. Dipped in chili sauce or their house sauce, each dimsum is perfect to the bite..no aftertaste!

What I loved most is Museum Cafe's Peach Lychee smoothie. Truly a refreshing drink that'll make you want for more. A must-try!

Have to go back here...I have to try their coffee... 128521
