Quick Bite at Rodrigo's Roast Beef

5:42:00 PM Unknown 0 Comments

Owned by Rodrigo, I assume. I might not have much info and story behind the owner but one thing I know for sure is that he knows his beef! If you’re protein-craving but don’t want to go over budget, this place is worth your money. 

Bossman's Meal (P328)
100g Angus Roast Beef
Quarter Chicken
3 Solid Sides

Both the Angus Roast Beef and Quarter Chicken are tender and well-seasoned. For our sides, we chose the Creamed Spinach, Mashed Potato and Side Salad. The sides are a stand out on their own. The creamed spinach was good, the mashed potato delivered in flavor, and the side salad tasted fresh thanks to the crunchy greens.

Roast Beef Manwich (P148)

Same roast beef was used for the sandwich. Could have been better if the bread was more toasted inside since the meat was drenched in gravy. Macaroni salad was, well, macaroni salad.

Considering the inviting atmosphere and good food, there's no doubt for another visit.

Five Things I Love About Café IF

4:04:00 PM Unknown 0 Comments

Café IF has recently become one of my favorite cafes over the past few months.  For people like me who can only work productively outside, it’s safe to say you’d like this place too.

1. Injeolmi Bingsu
Good for two for only P240! You can even ask for extra injeolmi powder free of charge. Even without the request for extra topping, they still put a generous amount not just on the outside but in the bottom too even with the other flavors. The strawberry bingsu is also a must try!

2. Sandwiches
Who would have thought corn kernels work so well on a Ham and Cheese Sandwich (P80)? Their Egg Sandwich (P100) is good too! Both these sandwiches come with free iced tea.

3. Ambience and Interior
If the lack of personal space is a big pet peeve for you, you won’t have any issues here. The café itself occupies the whole second floor of the building. The space in between chairs and tables are wide enough for you to embrace your inner introvert self away from the other diners.

4. Fast Internet, Outlets and Seating
Having a good number of power outlets and seats available give a welcoming feel for the diners to work in their café. You won’t feel the pressure to leave after a few hours. Wi-Fi is great too! I nearly finished working on my website without any disconnect.

And finally….

5. The Tita Dates
This place is also good for long catch-ups with your girlfriends right after your lunch date. Go ahead and talk about all the chismis you want. As I have said earlier, the spacing is good in between diners. Indistinct conversations is all you’ll hear from them.

With all this love for Café If, I would greatly love them more if they added more meal options. Most people stay from morning ‘til the afternoon. It would be good business for them to offer rice and pasta in the future.
