Open Rice Event, Lola Cafe+Bar

Nilyn of Above Precious Rubies and I were Invited for the Open Rice event in Lola Cafe+ Bar by a blogger-friend Jennie of Raising Hunter  in St. Tomas Morato Quezon City. We're excited because was our first resto-review event invite, and of course going their with our toddlers.

We met-up in Trinoma Edsa where Jennie picked us up, thanks sis Jen for the ride, and we were late! lol, yeah, because it was super traffic and we didn't know the exact place. After an hour drive, finally we found Lola Resto + bar. Thank you Lord we're safe.

The event was held at the second floor, and we arrived late so the event was almost done mabuti at nakahabol pa kami at may natira pa sa table. hahaha!

When we arrived there, the place looks so homey, and cool. This place is really good for family date, family reconciliation, family planning, friends bonding, chitchatting, group meeting, and so forth.

Aside from that, I like the space of their resto they had more tables and chairs outside if you want a breathe of the fresh air specially in the afternoon or in the evening.

I love their closed kitchen bar counter :)

The Foods...

Honestly I super duper bitin sa food na natikman ko because of my super malikot na ZD, but super sulit naman. I love the unique taste of their foods, I love all the foods not just because was hungry that time but because of the variety, the creativity and the next level of pinoy foods na talagang magugustuhan natin.

Compared to other resto foods na sometimes nakaka-umay minsan di mo nalang ubusin kasi nagsawa kana agad, this one is a place na gusto mong balik-balikan. That feeling na kala mo bahay mo because their foods are like the foods na hinahanda natin sa bahay but there is something special na talagang ma love mo at hanap-hanapin mo.

I would love to share with you for what I am talking all about. (Sorry for the photos medyo hindi na presentable ang mga foods kasi late na kami but it looks so good pa naman hahaha)
