Lunch time at Via Mare Cafe in Shangri-La Plaza with my former bosses at Edsa Shangri-La Manila. We always have "family" lunch at least once a month to catch up on what's new and still the same with our lives. It is nice that we get to that still.
Spicy Tuyo (dried fish) Flakes w/ Scrambled Egg and Garlic Rice.
Now, this sounds like a typical breakfast food for us Filipinos but we (yes, all 3 of us) ordered the same meal, we were craving for it for lunch and thank heavens Via Mare offers "Pinoy Breakfast" meals all day! I remember my Dad loved this food.
Anyhoo, I am all thumbs up for this one and I also love their Bibingka, Goto (Porridge?), Sago't Gulaman and basically all other Filipino food that they offer. All very affordable and delicious and what's even nicer is that the place looks so classy that sometimes people are surprised with how much the foods really are. Needless to say, the ambience is quiet and very cozy. But they are not limited Filipino dishes. They also have a few American and other Asian food. Their prices range from P120-P500.
You can visit their outlets in Powerplant Mall, Shangri-La Plaza, Greenbelt 3, Mall of Asia, Promenade Greenhills, Serendra or you can go over their website for more details: VIA MARE.
