Ta-dah! Another date place for you, Marikenyos! Well, actually, this restaurant we recently visited is not only great for dates but definitely perfect for family lunches or dinners, and of course a great venue where you can hang out with your friends --- especially at night, the place simply rocks with all the lighting they have. I'll try to go back on a lunch date, so that I can also see the place in the morning (I'm sure it is lovely, anyway!). Dearest readers, may I present to you Patio Vera.

 Overhead lamp for those of us who prefer to dine outside under big umbrellas and on cozy couches :-)

I love tripods... Hehe!

The dining area near the bar and counter

 Outdoor dining


 You can also dine on this comfortable and colorful couch

The empty couch you see was our date booth for the night, hehe!

Now, let's check out more photos of Patio Vera:

 I love this area :-)

 Dine with big wheels mounted on the walls. Cute!

 Perfect place to dine in groups

 Really love the furnishings of Patio Vera!

Indoor dining

After going around a bit, our food arrived. Off to the table we rushed once more...

Complimentary bread sticks (triangles?) with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Yum.

Bottomless Iced Tea

Paella con Carne (445 PhP - good for sharing, 2-4 persons). This was the only thing we ordered since we were only a couple sharing this hearty meal!

 Tres Leches Cake (165 PhP) - We love this!!!

 Crispy Churros con Chocolate (115 PhP)

Our bill came in this lovely shoe :-)

I am now on my fourth month of pregnancy and I couldn't eat as much as I'd love to like before, but that couldn't stop me from discovering awesome food places for you dear readers! This restaurant has been on my list for a couple of months now after receiving another recommendation from a reader. Together with my ever reliable support group - Mom and Sis - we checked out Tiyo's Cuisine by Chef & Brewer and we had a really great time!

 Love the interiors!

 For those of you who prefer to dine outside

Big space even for parking. This place gets packed especially at night though! 

While waiting for our orders, my preggy self went around the place since I already fell in love with it. Here are some photos I'd like to share with you. Enjoy!

 The kitchen

 The fish pond

 Hello lovely, healthy kois!

 Hello Mr. Plumpy! Cute!

 Dressing up their table wine. Love it!

Two cute buddha figures by the main door. I adore these!

I just love foodie places loaded with photo ops. I was informed that the place has been operating for just a couple of months, and I really look forward to what Tiyo's will offer us in the future. Ooops, here come our orders:

 Angus Tapa (200 PhP). Our favorite!

Grilled Beer Sausage (180 PhP). Oh, we loved their sinangag, too!

Bangus Belly (180 PhP)

Pesto with Aligue (320 PhP) Soooo good! This dish serves 2-3 persons.

Mango juice and Pineapple Juice (70 PhP each)

We had a great dining experience at Tiyo's Cuisine! The ambience is great, the prices affordable, and of course, the dishes are delicious! They currently have ongoing promos such as buy 1 take 1 for beers at 55 PhP, and the unlimited 1-peso brewed coffee. Check their Facebook page for more details.

 My best friends (aside from hubby, of course) --- Mom and Sis! Love them to pieces!

 Celebrating four months of baby in my tummy! Hihi!

 Notice how the centerpiece looks like it's walking? ;-)
