Lolo Dad’s Cafe ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥


lolo dad's malate


It is in an unassuming location.

Not in the glitzy Makati nor in the swanky Fort area, this small house-turned-restaurant is modestly tucked away along Quirino Avenue, near the busy and rowdy Taft LRT station.

I love this kind of establishment, it is like a secret precious gem in this world of Swarovskis and Murano glasses.

Except it is not so secret.

With Chef Ariel Manuel at its helm, how can it be?


Save for the foie gras crust which is a bit soggy, everything in tonight’s Degustacion is perfectly executed.
