We all deserve to have a treat after experiencing intermittent rains for almost two weeks. Indeed, the rain has ruined most of our plans for the weekends. That is why I promised myself to make time and visit shops to check out the hottest clothes, dining and hang-out areas soon as weather permits.
I drove going to Serendra with no hassle at all - traffic was smooth and finding a parking was quick. These are two of the must-haves in checking out stores. Otherwise, it's pointless wasting precious time if you could already dine and shop comfortably.
First on my list after arriving is to find a cold, refreshing drink. Timely, I spotted a long queue of people waiting to be served at a store called, Happy Lemon. This must be good and I must try it. And that is exactly what my friends and I did. We were the 15th customer to be served. It did not really mattered to us that day. All we want is to understand why people are queuing up at this store. I had Deluxe Cocoa with Pudding & Pearl Sago while by friend had Oreo Cookies & Cream Coffee. So, what do we think of it? It's new and it's good! Try it. They are located at B3 of Bonifacio High Street.
Next stop is dinner. There was a bit of discussion on where to eat. But what we wanted for dinner is something simple and close to home cooked food. The best choice of course was Abè Restaurant. It's Filipino and the closest we can get to home-cooked feel.
Here's what we had for dinner:
- Lumpiang Ubod - Spring roll of heart of palm, served fried or natural (Php135.00)
- Sinuteng Baby Squid - Small squid sautéed in olive oil and seasoning (Php175.00)
- Paco Fern and Tomato Salad - Young rainforest fern with tomato in a light salad dressing (Php155.00)
If you have not tried the food at Abè Restaurant, you've been living under a rock. They are located at Serendra, 26th St., Fort Bonifacio, Taguig.
Tip: Warn them that you do not like your food on the salty side. Food at Abè Restaurant can be salty at times.
Go out and enjoy life. It's beautiful out there.
Have a great week ahead!
