Food Trip: Revisiting Cafe Ysabel
Cafe Ysabel is one of my fave restaurants given its affordability, ambiance, and photography-friendly facade. This restaurant has been in existence for 25 years.
“The restaurant is a cultural and architectural landmark in Metro Manila. The cafe is housed in a refurbished 1927 ancestral home furnished with period furniture and wooden ceiling fans in a glass enclosed porch overlooking a tree laden garden. This provides setting the mood for a relaxing meal with the warmth of being in a grand home while being served quality cuisine.” — http://www.cafeysabel.com
I always reserve a table or two (or the big room if there are at least 8 of us in the group) before going to the resto. Given that Cafe Ysabel is the restaurant of Center for Asian Culinary Studies, several would-be-chefs hang around the resto on a regular basis.

I truly madly deeply love Vietnamese coffee! (Oops — I hope my new dentists aren’t reading this. I’m banned off coffee for a month to avoid staining my new ‘perfect-smile-took-7-hrs to-beautify-(?!?)’ teeth. Sorry Doc Coy and Doc Pia. Promise, my next coffee session will be mid August).
