When I think of Manila I remember my history class teaching us about how life was back then during the Spanish colonization. Pretty ladies in frilly clothes and men in white coats fill my imaginative mind. I remember how my mom would tell us that two horse carriages would bring her to school and back. She was considered privilege by having this type of luxury.
It makes me realize how colorful our history really was. Having a mix of Chinese, American and Spanish influences, life back then was more simple, fun yet very colorful.
While bonding over good food, little did we know that more than two hours had passed. I enjoy laid-back dining as I get to enjoy every single bite and the conversation exchanged is always the best.
Escolta is not your buffet place when you are into a wide-array of choices, it is perfect for dinner dates where you just want to have a handful but top quality dishes to choose from. Aside from their steak, seafood and sushi options, I also enjoyed their salad station where you can ask the chef to prepare a plate of Ceasar salad for you.
Lunch: P1350 net (monday - saturday), P1842 net (sunday)
