Cafe Juanita

Finally we got to dine @ Cafe Juanita. I've been hearing so much good things about this restaurant for so long, they renovated and opened another branch at the Fort already, but it is only now that  we had the chance to try it out... I think it's a perfect place for family dinners and gatherings. As you enter the restaurant, you will feel it's charming, inviting ambiance, albeit all the  shabby chic interiors and decorations that crowd even the littlest corners of the place. (a little too granny for my taste)  It's that kind of restaurant that serves no-fuss home cooked dishes that simply aims to hit your cravings.

Chicharon Bulaklak
We liked how they did the chicharon bulaklak, fried to a perfect crisp, you only get to eat the yummy crispy bits without the "chewy" middle (tastes like pork isaw) part which I dislike.

Beef Kaldereta
One of the house best sellers. But something tasted off, almost to the point of rancid (parang panis) , but I wasn't quite sure,  so we politely asked  our server to have it checked at the kitchen, they came back and said it was new and it really tasted like that, but they offered to replace it anyway. Naturally, we ordered a different dish instead.
