Cafe Juanita for lunch

Amidst my busy Friday schedule, I got a lunch invitation by one of our colleagues. Since there's a little "free" time before my scheduled meeting, I joined the invitation. We had lunch at Cafe Junita, somewhere along United St., Kapitolyo, Pasig. It was my first time to eat there and I was really amazed with the place. Outside, it may seems so ordinary that you wouln't expect that it looks so wonderful inside. 

It really has to be appreciated from the inside and I think this place is perfect for intimate and small dinners. The interiors are ranging from Asian/Filipino Colonial/Chinese Eclectic designs with antiques and colonial pieces in display (most are actually for sale.) all throughout the restaurant. 

Since the restaurant is very small, you need to reserve a table (which we did, thank's to Cheng who made the abrupt reservation)  way in advance as it is pretty crowded during dinners (and you should REALLY specify how many guests are you taking along with you). The food are distinctly Filipino but with a variety of Southeast Asian flavors.

We tried the Dimsum Plate,  Sinigang na Sugpo, Adobo Steak with Adobo Flakes, Laing and the Creme Brulee for dessert. We were so much "busog". Sorry no pics to post. Medyo pormal pormalan kanina e.. hehehe

All in all, ambience is what Cafe Juanita sell, and being its out of the way of the usual restaurant belts adds more to the adventure.
