After a stressful office day, catching up with friend/s felt really good especially when you missed and haven't seen each other for a couple of months. Yet, this is another shotgun coffee/dinner/bonding with friends. As suggested by Sherene (college friend/co-officer/classmate), we are trying Mom and Tina’s in Makati that night since she's really curious that the place is always loaded with people everytime she pass by. Meg Sherene went there first since I went for a quick workout before heading to the Cafe.

Arriving to the place, I looked for my dates for the night and I spotted them outside already enjoying their food and good talk. Sherene had a Rum Butter Cupcake and Caffe Mocha as you can see on the picture above. The place looks good and sophisticated while Meg had lasagna (which unfortunately I wasn't able to took a picture) if my memory served me right.
Since I am already starving, I already ordered. Since this is my first time I scanned the menu for a couple of minutes and finally chosen Chicken Relleno for dinner (I dunno if this is a recommended meal for post workout). While waiting for my order, we talked and asked how's life goin'.

The Chicken Relleno is served with coleslaw, a choice of java rice (as recommended) or steamed rice and goes with an oil (dunno what it's called). While having my dinner and catching up conversations, I unexpectedly saw Treng (my forever seatmate in college) and Cheng (Treng's boyfriend) maybe from the mall and on their way home. Literally, I ran and shout for them to notice me. Since we (me and Treng) missed each other, she couldn't help but hugged me and her usual squeak echoed in the place. They joined us for a while in our table and of course took a picture of this unexpected happening.
The food was okay for me - maybe I'm just expecting for more but I'm looking forward to trying other main course, dessert or maybe pasta from them some other time. The food is a little on its peak yet it was a place worth visiting and trying.
