Coffee & Cake Combo at Serye Café Filipino

My sister bought the "Cake and Coffee Combination" promo from Ensogo and all I have to say is what we saw from the pictures is really what you get. 

FYI: The promo is only P99 for a coffee and cake that's worth P200, but if you ordered a pair that exceeds the P200, then you'll have to pay the excess value.

The first pair: Café con sorbets with biscotti
Here's the biscotti
And here's the Cafe con Sorbets. My brother says it's simply coffee with ice cream.

2nd Pair: Café Mocha Manila with Suman
Cafe Mocha

My mother says it lacks flavor. She still prefers suman wrapped inside banana leaves.

Here are the rest of the desserts we ordered with coffee: 
Apple Pie
We didn't like this. It tasted like bread reheated in a microwave with dried apples inside. It's quite a disappointment.

Chocolate Decadence Cake
It was so-so according to my sister.

Macapuno Pandan Cake
The best Filipino-themed cake we've tasted so far. It's a must-try.

Sans Rival
I wasn't able to taste this, but my husband was able to finish this cake. I guess it's quite good. :)

The overall experience was okay. The ambiance of the cafe and the staff were satisfactory. Take note of the word, "cafe," in their title because the place was transformed more like a cafe and not a restaurant. It's actually a good place to hang out with friends and family.

Pre-Valentine Lunch at Razzzo Bistro

Yesterday, my sister treated the whole family to lunch at Razzzo Bistro in BF Homes, Paranaque because she purchased groupon vouchers. I do see Razzzo quite often whenever we pass by Aguirre Avenue, but the resto did not appeal to me on the outside. I thought it was a bar or a gimmick place, but when we came inside, I was surprised to see how beautiful and elegant the interior was. The place was so cozy and it can be a place where you can bring your date out to dinner.

The front door from the inside. 

Comfortable chairs and nice tables

More tables and cozy chairs :) 

We even noticed a projector at the top portion of this picture. 
I think you can even reserve the place for receptions and other events. 

Green tea lychee smoothie, blue lemonade, and a peach smoothie (P75 each) 
My sisters loved their smoothies.

Cold Chocolate (P75).
It tasted like Chocquick or Choco Lava. I even saw some choco powder floating on the drink that didn't dissolve. 

Sampler 2: Pizza, Pasta, and Mozzarella Sticks w/ blue lemonade (P199)
This is what I ordered and I loved everything that's on my plate. Pizza was freshly cooked, mozzarella sticks were crunchy and my white pasta was divine. 
A closer look at my sampler plate

Chef's Hamburger (P199)
My brothers were the ones who ordered this. They said the patty was very good, but the overall taste of the sandwich lacks flavor.

All-Meat Pizza (P355). Good for 3-4 people
One of my personal favorites. It's freshly cooked and I love the taste. It doesn't have that much meat, though, but it's still delicious.

Roasted Chicken (P199)
Quite good according to my husband 

Fettucinne con la carne  w/ blue lemonade (P195)
My sister loved this dish. 

Spaghetti with Shrimps and Vegetables (P265)
My mom said this dish was also good. 
 Ah, yes. We were quite mesmerized with the place's comfort room because it was so clean and we loved the interior.

This is the ladies room and there are 2 toilets inside. Not sure what the other one is for, but my son who's 4 years old used the smaller toilet so I guess that's what it's for. They're also complete with hoses where you can wash down under :)
Razzzo's Menu:

We definitely recommend this place to couples, families, and friends because of it's great food and great ambiance. They also have a Valentine Set Meal Promo for people dining in. Simply call them for inquiries or reservations.

Dinner at Luk Yuen Noodle House

We've been dining in Luk Yuen for so many times and we never get tired of their food. We went to Makati last month and decided to try out Glorietta 5's Luk Yuen branch.

Chicken feet  (P85)
**one of my husband's favorite appetizers in this resto

 Beef Brisket Noodle Soup (P150)**my husband ALWAYS orders this. We don't eat in this place if this dish is not available :P

 Chicken Noodle Soup (P150)Noodles and soup were okay, but the chicken was so tender, sweet and flavorful! It's a good dish especially when you have a cold :P
Iced Tea (P50)
Freshly made from the blender
