Top hangout of the month goes to the Elsie's by Owlisms which we locally termed as Ginatan because they serve justice to Ginatan Halo-Halo (Php 60.00) - because that is their "specialty" - plus my favorite Chicken Arroz Caldo (Php 55.00) and Pancit Molo (Php 60.00) without the noodles.
This is the perfect merienda place because aside from their Filipino mini dishes, they also sell brewed coffee for Php50.00 only. Milano Roast 250g for only Php 200.00, Melba Toast Php60.00 Whole Wheat Melba Toast Php65.00 Sans Rival Php60.00 and other sweet treats and pastries... So if you are on a budget and want to dine out, hang around, chat or just chill, or you just love owls then this is the place! :D
They have a cute presentation of food, cute owl bowls of different sizes, cute owl figurines and statues.
I hope that the picture above sums it all up. :P And no, I didn't eat all that! *burp*
P.S. - perfect hangout for tablet users because of free public wifi. Now that's what I called cool!
