As usual, All Over Marikina readers have their own recommendations which they gladly share on the page or relayed thru PMs or BBMs. We love you guys! Just last weekend, we dropped by Quina Restaurant and Pastry Shop since we were in the San Roque area (thanks to all those who recommended Quina!).

We deliberately skipped lunch (or did we...?) because we knew we were visiting San Roque and that Quina is just somewhere in its streets. It wasn't really hard to find, along Gi Fernando (formerly Tuazon), just turn right on BDO and go straight. That's Dragon street and just keep watching the left side and look for the QUINA sign (that's house #37).

So, what did we eat?

Mom ordered the Hungarian Sandwich (160 PhP). She said the sausage was juicy and tender, she really liked the sandwich... Okay fine, I had a taste of it too. Hah!

 Sis ordered the Spaghetti Carbonara (155 PhP) which she also liked a lot

And I ordered... what else, but the Puttanesca (regular readers know I always order this dish wherever I eat) (160 PhP)

My eat out buddies!

So, we were quite content with the food, but what sealed the deal for us were two things: the shakes and the cakes.

These mango shakes, at only 45 PhP, were reaaaaaally good. These were served before the dishes arrived, we almost finished them up!

The Red Velvet cake (90 PhP)... but wait, this is not even the 'star' of the show yet... Scroll down... and...

THE CHOCOLATE CAKE!!! (80 PhP) I will drive to Quina just for a slice of this heavenly chocolate cake. Yum yum yum. It's like the caramel was already mixed with the fudge. So yummy!!!

Another hidden gem discovered in Marikina! Check out Quina Cafe... and get a slice or a whole box of their chocolate cake!

I am a breakfast person. I can skip lunch, dinner or merienda, but please, let me have my breakfast. :-) I have been craving for waffles since last week, and during one of my recent trips to SM Marikina, I was all giddy when I saw that we now have the Famous Belgian Waffles in Marikina! Yey! (I had the waffles as snack though, not breakfast... ha!)

These are just not waffles, mind you. These are freshly-cooked, crisp on the outside, chewy and soft on the inside waffles that have many filling varieties to suit your palate --- or you can order the simple waffle if you're not a "filling" person.

The menu! So many choices!!

The waffles are freshly prepared so you might wait a bit (only a bit, though), but don't worry! The waffles are worth the wait.


Finally! Let's go munch these, sis!

Here is what we ordered:

Banana Hazelnut (55 PhP). The hazelnut spread is soooo good. At first I thought it was peanut butter, but it is hazelnut and actually reminded me of my favorite hazelnut gelato flavor. Yum!

Ham and Cream Cheese (55 PhP) The cream cheese tasted great with the ham, and sandwiched in a warm, crispy waffle, this combo is just oh-so-good.

Banana Peanut Butter (45 PhP) Do I even have to explain what makes this waffle sooooo good? ;-)

Sorry for the photos, I swear my SLR was calling out to me before I left the house, but I decided to leave it in my room. If only I knew the waffle encounter would be on that day...

So, if you happen to be in SM Marikina and you are looking for a quality snack, check out Famous Belgian Waffles! :-) They also serve really good coffee (according to friends, I am not a coffee person...)
