Food Trip: Lemuria Restaurant

“Lemuria was an ancient civilization which existed prior to and during the time of Atlantis. Physically, it is believed that Lemuria existed largely in the Southern Pacific, between North America and Asia/Australia. Lemuria is also sometimes referred to as Mu, or the Motherland (of Mu). At its peak of civilization, the Lemurian people were both highly evolved and very spiritual. While concrete physical evidence of this ancient continent may be difficult to find, many people “know” that they have a strong connection to Lemuria.”

It is said that one of the reasons for the Philippines being in the center of supernatural phenomenon is because it is part of the lost continent of Lemuria. Lemuria’s owner, Marina Schroeder was fascinated about this legend and hence named her mystic romantic restaurant Lemuria.

I’ve been hearing about Lemuria from raving food blogger friends since 2009. These food blogger friends have been coming back for its French-Mediterranean cuisine and the wide selection of wines offered straight from the cellars of Brumms Quality Wines, Inc.

Alas! It was my turn to visit Lemuria and experience the cozy ambiance and the excellent French-Mediterranean cuisine myself, as Lemuria still remains to be one of the most romantic restaurants these days.
