Rustan's Department Store has been around for years. This has been almost every grandmother's favorite shopping place and to this day, Rustan's has been my go to place when buying a wedding gift. In fact, it was also here where Paul and I did our gift registry for our very own BIG day. I love Rustan's for its quality choice of brands be it for the home, for your personal use or even for men.
I really love it when department stores also think of their client's well-being in the middle of having their retail therapy. Shopping can be tiring and what better way to take a break than to treat yourself with a good meal before hitting the racks again. In Rustan's Makati, there's East Cafe. This restaurant specializes in Asian favorites such as the Japanese Tempura, Thai Red Curry, Chinese Mooshoo Pork and a lot more.
One Saturday lunch, Paul and I joined The Food Club as we were all invited to try the new menu items in East Cafe. Let me share with you what we were able to try that day:
We had quite a feast and I could hardly take in another bite. However, the chef wasn't done yet as he had prepared a number of signature desserts for us to enjoy. Guess who was very happy with the Pinoy-inspired desserts that came out after? My husband, of course, as he grew up enjoying all these glutinous sweet treats back in his hometown in Pampanga. Here are just a few of what we had that afternoon:
Now that our tummies were all singing with glee and happiness, we can go back to our shopping spree!
