Hello, Cafe Shibuya!
I spotted Cafe Shibuya while waiting in line for the cashier at the supermarket.The brightly lit place had a very charming ambiance which appealed to me. So when R asked where I want to have dinner, I pointed the bakery looking shop. It was perfect as we were too tired to head elsewhere. After paying for our groceries, we went straight across and sat on the chairs outside the restaurant while signalling the server for menu.
Peter, the friendly server told us that it is better to eat inside. We pointed out that we have a shopping cart which will obstruct the space between the dining tables.But he assured us that it was fine and began to pushed the cart inside and positioned it near the counter. He then served water right after taking care of our cart. Talk about great first impression!
We checked the menu and decided to go with Honey Lemongrass Chops (PHP295), Fish and Chips (PHP175) and Pink Passion (PHP85).
Service was fast too. Our drink was served in less than 5 minutes and our food soon followed. I was amazed!
Pink Passion was bubbly and slightly tangy. I loved that it wasn't too sweet and that it actually quenched my thirst.
The Honey Lemongrass Porkchops was value for money. It was really good! It had the right balance of sweetness and saltiness.
Pork was tender and succulent and it went really well with the tomato and corn salsa! I finished every grain of java rice! (Well, R and I split the dish.)
Overall, it was a pleasant dining experience. Service was superb! I will definitely go back and try the sweets next time!
Cafe Shibuya is located at Ground Floor, The Block, SM North Edsa, Bagong Pag-asa, Quezon City.
