It was a rainy cold Sunday evening when we celebrated my 21st Birthday at the sophisticated vintage-themed restaurant in Silang, Cavite – Gourmet Cafe’s The Dining Room. We just sneaked a little family bonding to celebrate my special day with my little sisters before we head out to Makati.
Their place boasts its Lola’s House-feels theme: It’s like you’re at the house of Gran where there’s a lot of seats for incoming visitors (because everyone is her best friend), dance floor for dancing (every ballroom dance you’ll ever know), and yes ofcourse, there’s a loooot – like a looooot – of food.
It is a great place for every occasion – wedding or baptismal receptions, debuts, or even just like our small family dinner. It has a center stage designed for these events and loook at that sexy grand piano! (and the white lady playing it – just kidding, sissie!)
We were the only ones inside the restaurant so it felt like we rented the whole place just for my birthday! *kilig*
Now for the good & yummy part:
The ingredients for their food are freshly hand-picked from their farmland just beside their restaurant to which they offer scheduled visits so their customers can also appreciate their hard work put on planting to serve yummy eats with fresh and healthy ingredients.
This is Quattro Formaggi Pizza (Php 400) – Four Cheese Pizza with Roast Garlic. This is my fave pizza out of every pizza. Simple, yet so mouth-watering. Some pizza houses don’t get the right elasticity of those 4 cheeses but they (The Dining Room) topped it off! Their serving time is a little late than average because they bake their pizza just at the moment you order it (Just-In-Time). But mind you, it is worth the wait!
Another pizza just because. Meat Pizza (Php 450) – Italian sausage, ham, pepperoni, bacon in red sauce.
Mum always orders the healthiest out of menus – even at Restaurants where it is impossible to have any healthy food. She will always and always find something healthy out of anything. This time, she ordered Arugula Pesto Pasta (Php250) – yeep, healthy and weird stuff (which almost always makes you want to vomit).
Gyro (Php350) – pita wrapped sandwich with chicken & vegetables in tzatziki sauce. On the side is lettuce chips which you can separately buy at their store just outside the restaurant. You can also buy various dips & dressings (ranch, honey mustard, thousand islands) for these yummy babies.
Anddd my birthday cake!
Thanks, The Dining Room for an awesome pre-birthday Celebration!
