(This restaurant is now closed - as of 26 February 2014)

On our way to church, every Sunday since last month, we pass by a new and eye-catching restaurant that goes by the name of "Good Thymes". This fresh foodie place is found along Gil Fernando Avenue (formerly Tuazon) and is quite impossible to miss since they are open practically the whole day. So if you're the type to crave food late in the evening or early in the morning, just drop by Good Thymes to make your tummy happy.

The first thing that caught our attention was the interior. The place is great for couple breakfasts, family lunches, barkada drinks (yes, they serve alcohol), or any gimmick you can think of. I have selected only a few photos to give you an idea of the ambience, but you can view more on their Facebook page.

 Love the tones of red and white

 This place gets full in the evening!

 I really love the contrast of red and white... Ooops, already said that. Hehe!

This is where you can make pa-cute to your date, he he he!

Love the wash station too! I love everything!

Now that you have taken a bit of a virtual tour of GoodThymes, let's get back to business and check out the food! Upon seeing the menu, the first word that escaped my mouth was "Wow.". The menu is quite extensive! It has salads, soups, sandwiches, pastas, pizzas, entrees with rice, desserts and a separate sheet for drinks. Guess you won't run out of choices here, right?

For starters we ordered the Fried Mozzarella (180 PhP) - yummy!

 My sister and her hubby shared a plate of Mushroom and Bacon Alfredo (180 PhP)

'Littlest' sis and I shared this delicious plate of Sardines, Olives, and Dried Chilies pasta (210 PhP). I love how the pasta was cooked al dente, and the simple but flavorful mix of olive oil, sardines and garlic pretty much reminded of my days in Italy when I was studying there! *Nostalgia*

Our troupe also shared the Pizza Bianca (160 PhP) - thin crust pizza with lots of cheese, mushroom and bacon bits. I love the crust! So crunchy! ;)

Meals where I'm present never conclude without desserts:

Brownie a la Mode (85 Php) - you'll never go wrong with warm, chewy brownie and creamy ice cream!

Mango Crepe (150 PhP)

So there, another good resto that we hope you visit when you can. As this blog promises - we'll keep on bringing you great food finds! Keep on sharing the Marikina food trip love. :)

  10. brownie a la mode!!! drools!!!

  11. hello there! :) head to GoodThymes na and try the brownie a la mode. :) warm brownie + cold and creamy ice cream. :) you'll love it!

  12. your service is so poor... unprofessional workers... naawa na nga sa inyo nangdaya pa kayo... kung sino ang mag take out make sure to check the food... we expected too much that good thymes resto bar is as nice like the other fine dine-in resto bar... just be careful HINDI NYO ALAM AT KILALA KUNG SINO ANG NAGIGING CUSTOMER NYO... piece of advice to all good thymes people... try to experience to eat in other fine dine-in resto located in libis, makati, q.c., so that you guys will improve before its too late.

  13. hello there! oh no, I am sorry to hear about what happened (even with your take out!) I hope this reaches their management and try to work out their customer service. When we were there, service was okay naman, but of course, there has to be consistency in everything :-) thanks for dropping by and I hope you oay their resto another visit someday ;-) Ciao!

  14. Hi is this resto still operating? I havent notice it along G.Fernando.

    1. hi there! I don't think they're open anymore. thanks for your comment, will update the post.
