Once upon a holiday, Sister and I were on our way to buy Aling Remy's puto and grab some snack at Mama Chit's. Walking towards the diner, we noticed that the gates of a garden beside Mama Chit's were open, those of Dee Coffee House. Since we haven't tried this place yet, it was a fairly easy decision to eat there instead.

We chose this cozy spot, to watch the scenes outside while munching, hihi

To order, go through the door that leads to a mini-counter and take your pick from their menu. Here is what we had at Dee Coffee House:

 Penne with Tuna Ricotta al Pesto, 120 PhP (A bit spicy, just inform them if you want less peppers on this dish)

Primavera farfalle, 120 PhP (Light creamy sauce with chicken, peppers, pancetta, mushrooms, and 2 kinds of cheese. This is easily our favorite!)

We also ordered their American Chicken Bacon Burger (75 PhP). This is really good - freshly prepared with flavors that perfectly blend together.

We also had bottomless iced tea (50 PhP) - which was really sulit because we were there for almost three hours, haha!

I am actually saving the best dish for last! As soon as we attacked this dish, Sister and I couldn't stop raving about how good it was. Thus, I unveil:


If there was only a way to extort the recipe out of them... Hehe! The ground beef had a unique and really good marinade, every bite was joy! One of the best I've had so far.

So if you're looking for a place to hang out (as usual), I recommend Dee Coffee House for their food and the cozy, private feel of the place - just like enjoying lazy afternoons in your own garden.
