The other night, my family and I were going out for the afternoon and for dinner as well. We've decided where we wanted to spend the afternoon but we had some issues when it came to deciding where to eat for dinner. I, for one, strangely felt like eating Filipino food.* My parents both suggested Cafe Romulo.** Even though I'm quite the foodie, I haven't heard of the place.***

Overall, I reckon Romulo Cafe is good value for money. It's a sophisticated transformation of Filipino food but still retaining the integrity and focus of it. They do their food well. The presentation is careful and elegant. The whole experience was lovely.

Ps. Make reservations unless you intend to have an early meal.
* If you really know me, you'd know that I'm hardly one to raise my hand when it comes to this cuisine. And I haven't been in the country for a couple of months, so I had a slight craving for it.
** When my parents both suggest the place, it means that the food is absolutely pucker.
*** This hardly ever happens.
**** I reckon the divisions are for private functions.
***** I didn't get to try it cause I'm particularly sensitive when it comes to shrimp.
