Foodtrippin’ : Cafe Via Mare – Greenhills (San Juan, Metro Manila)

Cafe Via Mare reminded me of Cafe Laguna because they are known for merienda treats right for the Filipino taste bud. Their best-sellers are Pansit Luglog (Pancit Palabok in our place), dinuguan (comparable to Red Ribbon’s) and their yummy bibingka topped with cheese!

 

dinuguan paired with puto

 

 

they used queso de bola for their cheese toppings on their bibingka

 

What’s refreshing to note is that they have this set of drinks, SHOOTERS — which you can have three drinks in one go, halo2x, mais con yelo and sago. My fave among the three was the sago (such a sucker for sago hehehe).

 

I just love their presentation of the shooters because they come in little glasses.. cute 🙂

 

pork adobo (forgot the exact name) which is garnished with chopped fresh tomato and I believed vinegar with ginamos which added a distinct flavor to it…

 

and their famous palitao which simply melts in your mouth!

 

a big disappointment is their puto bumbong 😦 I prefer the one in Cafe Laguna here in Cebu…

 

Over-all, their service is good, the food is worth another second visit though their menu is quite expensive, more like a fine dining merienda style.
