LOLA Cafe + Bar

Saturday, March 02, 2013

Because of MasterChef production team's hard work, Ron (my co-EP) & I thought of treating the whole gang on a dinner feast.

Mike and I recently discovered this quaint & new restaurant along Sct Lozcano cor Sct Tuazon, Tomas Morato. Lola Cafe + Bar is a cozy dining place surrounded by trees perfect for group or family get togethers. 


This was formerly a house now transformed into a restaurant.

Retaining the features of the house, it reflected a homey ambiance, the interiors are spacious, with two floors of dining areas plus an alfresco dining.

They serve fusion and continental cuisine. Here are some of the delicious dishes we ordered.

Appetizers: 
Beef Salpicao (P280)- beef tenderloin cubes sautéed with olive oil and garlic. The beef is very tender and juicy but has little serving.

Veggie Humus (P150)- eggplant humus served with pita bread.

Pumpkin Soup (P90)- topped with bacon.

Gambas y Chorizo (P280)- fresh shrimp and chorizo sauteed in olive oil with lots of garlic. This is one is a bit pricey.

Pastas:
Pasta Tartufo (P260)- Cream sauce with portabello mushroom and truffle oil.

Spicy Tinapa Pasta (P185)- Smoked fish with olive oil, chili flakes & fresh tomatoes. This one you should order, delicious and tasty! YUMMY! :)

One of the keys to survive the stress and fatigue of TV production is for you to have an awesome group like MasterChef team. I'm really proud of my team for making an amazing show. Kudos to us! :)
