We heard about this new place from our brother, Mike! So when we were looking for a place to eat, I suggested this to the girls. Timmy Antonio first brought me to this place as her Mom, Ruby Diaz Roa, is an officer and an active member of the Makati Garden Club. She told me that part of the proceeds which they get from the restaurant will go to the club
Cross the bridge
Towards this place – they used to sell furniture and accessories here before
And now they turned it into a French Cafe!!!
So nice and cozy -perfect for the “ladies who lunch”
Baltazar Artisan Breads – They have freshly made breads being sold there and at the same time being served with the dishes at the Cafe
The chef and owner of this place used to be the Chef in Savoy Bistro, Sandra Fernandez. She was not there last Friday since she was out of town. I have never been to Savoy Bistro but Des said it was good and since Mike and Gloria say it is good, I got excited and told the girls.
We were admiring the chandelier on top of our table which resembled a Capo de Monte style piece
with the bread basket
I am so glad we ordered plenty appetizers because I love appetizers!
Mussels ala Baltazar! Des said Savoy Bistro was known for this so we ordered it and they loved the mussels and I loved the sauce!! I just kept dipping my bread on the sauce! YUM!!!
I made sure we ordered this – Baked Mushrooms – Fresh Shiitake, eggplant and raclette these
Cheese fondue – 3 cheeses with lots of sour dough bread
Yum! I loved this because it’s not the usual packaged swiss fondue, it was homemade and it was not as strong – very light and very yummy!! They kept refilling the bread!
Luzanne making sure we scraped the cheese to the last drop!
Everything we ordered we shared equally so we can try as many dishes as we can
We had two salads which were both very good – Romaine salad
Salad de Maison
Scallop and Asparagus risotto!!! YUM!!! Thanks Lucille for ordering this!!
Gloria was there!! Also lunching with her friends
She shared with us some of her Alaskan king crab claws – Yum!
Creme Brule to end. We were hoping to have the Mango Crepe but it was not available that day
Enjoyed as usual with the Beautiful Friends Forever ( BFF ) group :-). The more senior ladies at our back were so sweet – as they were leaving they told us that they were talking and watching us since we reminded them of themselves when they were our age and up to now they still get together to have lunch together. And I told them we were looking at them and saying that we would be like them as we grow older
Our bill which came in a cute tray
Very convenient for Urdaneta Village residents, you do not have to go out the village, you can park near the gate and just walk it is right outside the gate
