More Reasons to Love BUBBA LAB

First off, I would like to give a shout-out to all my labmates at BUBBA LAB! I requested a scienTEAst shirt in a (half-meant) joking manner and guess what... they gave me a shirt! How awesome can these guys be? Haha! Thanks so much labmate Mikee for the super cool shirt!

Me and scienTEAsts Mark and Lani... Of course, me already wearing the shirt! Hihi!

We tried their classic Earl Grey and their Bubba Frost Series. Super. Yummy.

Can you see the creamy froth? Mmmmm. Salted cream frost. Yummeh.

They also have an ongoing promo. Collect stamps and get discounts on the 7th and 10th stamp. Cool huh?

More Reasons to Love CAFE VIA ANGELO

I love cafes that are open on Sundays, especially in a small city like Marikina. Last weekend when we had some hunger pangs late Sunday night, we drove along JP Rizal looking for open food places and we were all smiles when we saw that Cafe Via Angelo is still open!

The coolest thing I remember about this restaurant (aside from its coziness) is the warm service provided by the staff, they're so nice and very accommodating. I remember them running out of iced tea stock but since I ordered it one of the crew had to run off to the nearest convenience store to get a pack. Aww! I know it's their responsibility to stock up, some of you might think, but still!!! Some foodie places would have easily said 'not available'. ;-)

See how late it was? No people. Almost closing time. Hihi!

We dismissed the idea of ordering pizza since we have previously tried their pizza (which was really good and loaded with toppings). I have always been curious about their sandwiches and at the same time craved pasta, so yes, we ended up ordering those.

While waiting for our orders, I ask for a slice of chocolate cake. Hehe, dessert before the meal. Not sure if that's a very good practice.

*Wink*. Whatever floats my boat.

Halfway through the fudgy cake, our orders arrive:

 Fish and Chips (145 PhP)

 Pesto Mare Pasta (145 PhP)

Tuna Sandwich (90 PhP)

So: thank you Cafe Via Angelo for remaining open even on Sunday night! Burp.
