It was Mother’s Day and my husband was busy surfing the internet looking for a place we could celebrate and possibly have a decent meal. It wasn’t long enough before he landed on the page about Lola Cafe + Bar. After reading some feedbacks and looking at the menu— he decided to call for a reservation
Actually, we weren’t expecting them to accept us, because it’s Mother’s day and usually— almost all places are booked. Considering a resto like this one— it must have been in full house. But luckily they were kind enough to accept our reservation since were 1 hour ahead from our actual arrival.
The place is easy to find and they have a huge space for a parking lot – big yey!!
They greeted us nicely and brought us to our table – which was at the left corner of the second floor.
You know what? I actually like the interior design of the place! There are plants hanging around the walls, but the lights were the best part. They really matched the greenery which definitely gives the guests a relaxing vibe. Here are some snaps I got while waiting for our order.
See what I mean? Plus good music in the background (they have an amazing setlist) adds up to the feel-good message they wanted to portray.
For our veggie, we ordered Laing and Ensaladang Talong.
For meat— we had the Salpicao. It was very delicious! Would’ve been nicer if the beef was a bit more tender. But other than that, it tastes perfect!
We ordered the Sinigang with a twist- their sinigang is mixed with watermelon— which makes the soup red. I forgot what they call it though. (busy taking care of my baby). Though I wasn’t able to take a photo, I guess I described it enough for you to be able to picture it out.
We also had the Crispy PATA but they named it differently— which I forgot AGAIN. DEFINITELY ONE FOR THE AGES! It’s one thing you shouldn’t miss if you visit this place. Super crispy!
Of Course — what’s a meal without chicken? we ordered the Lola Fried Chicken. No photo again because it was served while we were having dinner— I was too wrapped up in all the great meals and didn’t bother to stop for a photo op.
As expected— the chicken is crispy as well. Good thing for me because I’m fond of crispy fried food.
It was indeed a night to remember!
Place is good, ambiance is good, staffs are good and the food is amazing!
Will definitely go back!
