Kesong Puti poppers

Kesong Puti poppers

Though this was on the list of possible places to eat at, this was not our initial piority. Lutong Bahay ni Aling Cora was ranked higher until we passed this on our way back from a church hunt that I felt underwhelmed at the sight. So next few restos on the list, and we have Margie’s. I categorized it as contemporary food with good dessert. With three branches in the area that small, I didn’t really know what to expect. And as we got dropped off Β at one of the branches, situated beside a pan de pugon, we walked to a very small, quaint resto, with more promise than I would have hoped.

We sat outside first since the place was full. It seats about 20 people. But one group was about 10 to 15 people already. We were transferred inside as soon as one group left. The menu was a hodge podge of things. Local. Viet. Thai. Even I was confused. We ordered kesong puti poppers, Vietnamese chicken saute with basil rice, Fat choi with rice, coffee (which proudly uses carabao’s milk) and cookie monster chocolate cake.

The food arrived after some wait. And good too! πŸ™‚ It was far from splurging, but not cheap either, with our bill totalling about $14 or P600. But I found the food to be interesting and good. And the kesong puti poppers, I loved πŸ™‚

The cake too, was surprisingly better than I expected πŸ˜› but the carabao’s milk in the coffee? Could hardly taste the difference. :s

But on a tourist’s standpoint, I am happy πŸ˜€
