Visited: Restaurant -- A Taste of L.A Cafe

Hi everyone! I’m so excited to share with you guys the restaurant where my Mr. Awesome and I have our dinner date during our 2nd anniversary. Yes, we had just celebrated our 2nd birthday as a couple and looking forward to spend many more years with him.

Anyway, going back to the restaurant, my Mr. Awesome chooses to spend our dinner date at "A Taste of L. A Café". An old house turned into a cozy restaurant. This place is located at 171 A. Roces Ave. Cor. Tomas Marato Quezon City.

It's a bit old but still a good option if you are looking for a fine dine atmosphere.

The following are the list and the perspective price of what we've ordered:

-French Onion Soup --- Php310.00
-Hainanese Chicken --- Php400.00
-Grilled Blue Marline Steak --- Php380.00
-Spicy Duck Pizza --- Php490.00

The price ranges from Php300.00 and up. Yup, it is expensive for me and oh, it has an additional charge for their services, of course there is! lol!. I heard some are not satisfied with regard to the service from the waiters, but with all fairness, during our date, the waiters were so nice, accommodating and very attentive. I don't know, maybe we're just lucky hehe.

In terms of food, gosh I loved it! Promise! Specially the Pppiiiiiiiiizza! It is so delicious. The ultra thin crust pizza with thick melted cheese and burst with some flavor from the spices, really a mouthwatering, I will definitely re-order this one. The Hainanese Chicken and Grilled Blue Marline Steak are the best also, really delicious and worthy of the price. I just got a little disappointed with the French Onion Soup, I don't like it. I prefer the old chicken soup or mushroom soup.

What I also liked about the place is the ambiance; it's so dim, quiet and romantic. By the way, this is also a good place to dine with your friends. There is a certain place for a group who liked to be in an air-conditioned room or for those groups of friends who smoked, so that the non-smoker will not be bothered.

We will definitely go back again and try some of their dishes. I heard the So-Like-Rockefellah is good too. Ooopps, of course Spicy Duck Pizza again. Gosh I'm craving! ( hehehe ).

Till my next review.....

Birthday Gifts!

Hi everyone! I just turned 27 last Sept. 6, and yes I’m getting older guys (waaaaaaaaah). Though, it does not really bothers me coz I believe that “age is just a number”, right!!? And plus the fact that according to my Sweetie, I really don’t look like my age now (of course, naniwala naman ako! Hahaha!ッ lol )

Perhaps, everybody loves birthdays, and who does forget that day? It’s always been a tradition for us that we celebrate our own or other people’s natal day. Besides, no one like to forget that, right? We always make sure that the celebrant will feel special on her/his day, so we intend to send birthday cards, greet them or give them something for that day.

So without further ado, here is a quick glance at some of the gifts that I received during my special day.
