I loved the green and white colors of the place. It seemed calming and soothing. Or I could just be biased since I went to De La Salle and green and white is our school color. Whatever my reason was, I decided that we would eat here.
I loved the look of the place. It was very kitchy and it was homey. I took a photo of the chair not to show it off but because I want to buy one of these when we have our own house. It just looks so comfortable and it was.
My sister ordered the beef rice topping and I went for the tuna sandwich. I can honestly say that for the beef rice topping alone, It was really good. When the staff said that it was their best seller, I didn't believe it. When I took a bite of it, I believed her. Writing about it now, I just want to go out and have a cup.
It was the smell and then the taste. It leaves a memory. I don't know why but it does. It's the kind of dish that makes you remember its taste and scent which leaves a really good memory. I think that this is what food should be all about. It is not just the taste but the memory that it creates.
They also serve pretty good coffee and I liked that they serve it with biscotti. For a small hole in the wall resto-cafe, they were pretty impressive. The service was also really good. I'd say that we ended the year with a really nice discovery. I'm glad we went here.
Au Ventre is located along Vatican Road inside BFRV, Las Pinas.
