"So much for being a food blogger. I have never even been to Antonio's."
Apparently, this was going to be the reason that I will finally get to go to Antonio's because my colleague decided to hold a meeting there. Upon entering, a man opened the double doors for us and I must say that it definitely added to the grandeur of the place. The foyer was a little intimidating and dark but I liked it.

My shots were blurry because I was too much in a hurry to just really soak in the feel of the place. I wish I could go back in the morning and take really decent photos. I love the place, I love the feel of it, and I just love how it automatically relaxes you.
My friend and I went around the place and sat on a couch which was placed in the middle of a garden. We laid down on it and above us was a tree. Truth be told, it was a very romantic setting but since I was just with a friend, I had to leave the romantic part in my head.
It was a good place to brainstorm because all around there were trees and it was very relaxing. When creative people are stressed, this is a must. Finally, we went back to our table and had our dinner. For me, I had the lamb chop cutlets (Php2,200) and it came with soup, salad, and dessert.
I had mine medium well and it was succulent. Yes, it was really tender and it was very tasty. I loved it though I still feel its a little overpriced. However, if I take the place into consideration then I would say that it was just right. Ambiance, great food, awesome conversation and a meeting of the minds is definitely something that I would take any night.

Thanks Wyn for this night. It was truly magical and the best part is, I actually came up with a pretty good idea for our project. :)
