Food Review: Mrs. Graham’s Macaron Cafe

Ever considered having macarons for dessert after lunch or something to munch on while working on homework? No worries, there’s a place just for you to hang out with your schoolmates and even colleagues and de-stress yourselves after a long day from school. Mrs. Graham’s Macaron Café is located along 51C Sct. Rallos St. Quezon City. It operates business daily from 11 am to 11 pm to serve their customers who want to satisfy their cravings for macarons and other pastries they want to have.  Despite the small space, customers can still be enlightened with the design (particularly the macaron lamps hanging from the café’s ceiling , as well as the frames attached on the stairs).

Mrs. Graham’s Macaron Café serve different flavors of macaron : Tequila Rose, Salted Caramel, Baileys, Inside-Out S’mores, White Coffee, Cookie Dough, French Toast with Peanut Buttercream, Pancake with Maple Buttercream and more. Not to mention, they also have Butterbeer Latte served either hot or cold, as well as milkshakes , milk tea and coffee.

What’s more interesting is that they have a collection of board games for students and workers to play with, enough for them to keep themselves from getting bored while waiting for their order to be served. Relaxing, isn’t it? They also have this souvenir and gift corner where you can buy gift items for yourself or your friends.

During my visit at this place with my sisters, we tried the salted caramel and buttered popcorn flavor and ordered cold butterbeer latte. The butterbeer somehow tasted a bit too sweet, but it was worth the try. Looking forward to visiting this place again.

Restaurant Review: Yuan Congee & Dimsum Bar

Craving for something Asian? Want to try something different?

Then Yuan Congee & Dimsum Bar might just be the one you’re looking for.  This restaurant is known for its best congee and you can have your very own congee topped with a variety of mixed vegan, meat and assorted toppings. Aside from their congee, they also serve siomai and other Asian cuisine.  They also have this buffet style of catering , but strictly no sharing or leftover, unless you would want it ordered for takeout.

You have this choice of either having your congee topped with rice of any kind (Sweet Chix Rice, Spareribs Rice, Yuan’s Special Porky Chops, Buttered Chicken Rice, etc.) , veggies (Sichuan Spicy Cabbage, Crunchy Tofu, Crispy Mixed Veggies, Seasoned Soya Veggies, Sichuan Stir Fried Eggplant, Garlic Spinach, Crispy Mixed Veggies and Breaded Shrooms) or none at all.  As for dessert, I tried out their coffee cream and jelly and so far, it tasted really good that I’d want to order more.

When it comes to the restaurant’s appearance, I could say that it has a nice ambiance and quirky sense of design. Their walls are designed with bricks and grass. Come and see this restaurant for yourself.  Yuan Congee & Dimsum Bar is located along #178B CM Recto Street, Barangay Maytunas, San Juan City.  It opens from Monday to Sunday 11 am to 12 mn.

Restaurant Review: Hokkaido Ramen Santouka

Hokkaido Ramen Santouka is one of the recommended restaurant for everyone to visit, especially if they are craving for ramen (a Japanese noodle soup dish , quickly cooked and typically served in with broth meat and vegetables).

One of their dishes that I tried is the Spicy Creamy Shio Ramen . Aside from the ramen noodle, their ice tea shake also tasted good. I tried this restaurant with my sister in Promenade Greenhills Shopping Center. I was satisfied with their food and would definitely visit this place once again with my family or friends and try out another dish.
