Fresh New Filipino Adobo Recipe Ideas from Cafe Juanita

A few weeks ago, I entered this quaint restaurant named Cafe Juanita in the Burgos Circle of the Global City in Fort Bonifacio.

For obvious reasons, I resisted every temptation to order the Crispy Pata. It was a beautiful place, picture perfect for a romantic date in the heart of the busy metro. A sneak peek of this dining destination for duets is available below, taken from the archives of TopGear Philippines.

I will NOT lie. The food reviews (raves) written about this restaurant is not all that reliable. It was not all THAT bad, but it was NOT all THAT good either. Fair enough, right? :)
