Food Trip: Revisiting Cafe Ysabel in 2011
It was an extremely busy day. As early as 7 AM, I was up and about, preparing to watch the Pacquiao-Mosley fight in Outback Steakhouse Libis. Right after Pacquiao’s successful fight, ‘had to go straight to San Juan to celebrate Mother’s day with my family – – inclusive of mom, dad, my bro, my little boy, aunt who is visiting from the States, and Amang (my grandpa) who is also visiting from the States.
My family’s schedule had been chaotic for the past few days. While am at work, mom would usually send an SMS indicative of the their current location, ranging from up north in Pangasinan, central in Makati or QC, or down south in Laguna. It was due to this chaotic sched that a Mother’s Day celeb with the whole fam seemed improbable…until mom confirmed late afternoon of May 8th that they are free on May 9th after lunch. ‘Had to work quickly and pull some strings to get some reservations done. ‘Had to call several restaurants to make my last minute reservation.
My fam celebrated last year’s mother’s day in the same resto too. Click here to read Cafe Ysabel 2010 Mother’s Day article.
The same homey cozy ambiance was still evident. The same level of attentiveness of the waiters was visible. Good food plus good service plus excellent ambiance, how could you go wrong?
