If I were made to choose, Filipino food would be on the bottom of my food chain favorite. But alas, I am always either out-smarted or out-voted haha. So I just go where they take me & make the most out of it.
Last night, we had dinner with an old friend, Hitler, whom we haven’t seen for ages.
|With Hitler. My dearest’s other half & ate’s ninong.|
Parking is a bitch now in town, with all the new restaurants cropping up & occupying what should have been a much-needed parking space. So we had to make do with limited choices in westgate.
Cafe Ano is the old Cafe Adriatico. Used to have the same owners but you know how it is with partnerships -they ultimately break up! ;P But the menu is still similar to that of adriatico’s, & the chef is still the old one before the dissolution, so the food was somewhat adriatico-ish.

If you get diamonds, don’t forget gold.
Because only gold can hold diamond.
