Restaurant Love: Old Oven Art Café

As foodies who “somehow” plan, we plan half of the stops we’ll visit. N mentioned that she wanted to visit Old Oven so we made sure that we have enough space in our tummies for its risotto and it was one of the best decisions, ever!
The Old Oven Art Café was our fifth stop during our White Plains food trip so just imagine how full we should be. It may sound bizarre though as we weren’t really that full at all.
We had a hard time finding Old Oven as the numbers seem to be a bit messed up. But the place is fortunately just a few steps away from Pan de Amerikana.
We were greeted by a curved staircase and once we entered, it seemed like a chill hang out place for college students. With friendly prices, this place is actually perfect to be along a university district so N and I find it odd that the place is in White Plains.
We practically own the place when we were there. I took two jars with puzzles for us to enjoy while waiting for our food.

First served was the Mushroom Truffle Risotto (PHP245). It was great! Serving was pretty generous and the texture was delightful. N had a hard time though as the risotto had minced onions and she doesn’t like onions.
The Old Oven Cheesesteak Sandwich (PHP185) was huge! With homemade fries as its side dish, this meal is perfect for the hungry diners. Taste wise, it was your usual cheesesteak. But with the price, I’m sure people would not mind.
I’m so happy to discover this place. I will definitely be back for more risotto.

Old Oven Art Café is located at 136 Katipunan Avenue, White Plains, Quezon City.
