Love at First Bite: Café Enye

I have heard of Café Enye since last year. It sure captured my interest after reading positive reviews about it in looloo. I was so intrigued that I even begged my family to eat there instead of the ribs place a few blocks away a few months ago. But since it was my uncle’s birthday and he chose Big D’s Smokehouse, I had to give up my intense desire to visit this place. (Yes, I’m that passionate with food.) Then again, food gods love me and I finally got a chance to visit this place last week.
Hello, Café Enye!
I visited the place around 12 noon on a Monday and I was the only diner that time.
The place has a warm ambiance with its predominantly brown interiors. The server who assisted me was very friendly and pleasant too. 
Since I have been stalking this restaurant for quite some time, I already knew what to order. The only problem is, since I was alone that time, I had to trim down my long must-try list. I ended up ordering Chicken Mojo Skewers (PHP330), Chouxros with Dulce de Leche Cream (PHP170) and Calamansi-Cucumber (PHP90).
Service was quite prompt as I was just about to start blogging when my drink arrived. 
It was the perfect thirst-quenching drink. It was refreshing with a bit of zest. I loved it! <3 
My main dish was served next and it was a very pretty dish. I instantly fell in love with the citrus marinated chicken skewersI may be a bit biased as I love anything tangy. But this dish is a  definite winner. It had a delightful balance of saltiness and tanginess. Also, the chicken cubes were cooked to perfection. Each bite was juicy and packed with flavor. 
It went lovely with the cilantro yogurt and the Harissa and Latin Salsa which further added texture and balanced the zest of the chicken. 
After an intense flip flopping on whether I should finish my plate of skewers or not, the lovely rings of dough finally arrived.
One order comes with two dips--dulce de leche cream and tsokolate peanut butter dip. Though interesting, I didn't go crazy over the dips and it just made me crave for Dulcinea's/La Lola's/Alqueria's thick and rich chocolate dip. Nothing beats the classic
Overall, it was a wonderful and filling lunch. Dessert was a bit of a miss though but it won't hinder me from visiting this place again. See you again soon, Café Enye!
Café Enye is located at Ground Floor, Excelsior Building, Eastwood Avenue, Libis, Quezon City.
