Board games and food come hand-in-hand in this ambient board game cafe in Banawe, Q.C. The menu was aplenty with chicken wings, pasta, desserts, and meat dishes. Add to that their imported board games; and you have a hit among teenagers, families, and people looking for a fun way to kill time.

I first had their Taiwanese chicken pops. These crispy chicken chunks reminded me of the ones sold along my elementary school. I used to savor those with 5 spice sauce. It was a trip down memory lane as I savored every bite of it.

I then moved on to their Chicken wing variants. They had the usual sweet and spicy and terriyaki variants which were pretty tasty. However, the most remarkable one was the salted egg variant. I was firstly appalled at the prospect of having to eat it; so I stuck to the spicy and terriyaki variants. The meat was tender; plus these were easy to tear off from the bones.

I then tried out their Coffee ribs. This dish was the standard baby back ribs glazed instead with a coffee sauce. It was pretty decent for its taste and size. The Tomato Porkchop, on the other hand, was a humungous slab of breaded porkchops with creamy tomato sauce and cheese. I liked this dish better. The Orange chicken was pretty sweet and tasty as well.

As for pasta, I had the Orange hair pasta. It was cooked to perfection; and it came with two slices of butter toast. I'd say it was pretty good with their creamy seafood rice which was topped with white sauce over slices and bits of fish and shrimp.

Dessert was the killer. I had their Dutch Baby Smores and their specialty drink called the Butterbeer. The former was a pan heated delight of thick marshmallows topped with an ice cream center, choco syrup, and a pancake bottom. I loved this the most! The marshmallows mixed well with cold ice cream and the sweet syrup. I'd definitely come back for more. The Butterbeer was excellent as well. The drink was a golden yellow concoction of milky and buttery goodness.

For those who love boardgames and great food, come over to this place!

The Neighborhood Game Cafe's ambience is very light and cheerful. Counter / bar is right across the door, with the shelves of games immediately to the right of the entrance. We went there on a weekday, but it must have been school vacation or some sort of a holiday because a big group of about more than 10 high school kids went in a few minutes after we did. They were super rowdy and noisy that they didn't care that we had a sleeping baby with us (but that's digressing).

Anyway, the orders took some time to arrive but it was worth it! Sister had the pesto pasta. When it was laid down at our table, it looked plain and not really that appetiZing but when we had a taste, grabe sarap! Will order this next time.

I had the baked rice duo. It was reminiscent of the dish I always eat at Cafe Coral in HK. Love the two sauces. It was served piping hot, albeit having to wait for more than 30minutrs for it.

Also had the salted egg custard french toast. Hands down my new favorite!!! Price was a bit steep, 200+ (I think) for this but that wouldn't stop me from ordering this again. Let's just save this for those splurge days hehehe.

For the drinks, they had a BOGO on Vietnamese coffee, which my bro in law finds unsatisfactory but which I find is just right for a Vietnamese coffee.

Will I go back? Definitely! I just hope high school kods nowadays be taught how to be compassionate of other people around them, or at least respect other people's personal space. 128566128566128566
