EAT SAN JUAN: CO/OP

2015! 2015 when I first learned about this place and I have been meaning to go since then. The boyfriend always says yes, but never really remembers most of the time. :/ so I was extra happy when we tried this as a surprise.

After visiting our place to check for renovations, we ate lunch. ❤

Love the exteriors and how it is so well-lit inside. It’s a lifestyle store with a cafe inside. (Although the cafe has the bigger area. 😛 ) You can find some unique pieces, books, stationary, figurines and some decor.

It’s a self service cafe. You’ll see the counter when you enter the store. It has this chalk board counter menu that makes it look friendlier than usual. But the servers are quite nice actually.

We ordered the Shrimp Diablo for Php 390

The dish is okay but nothing special. It’s a tomato based pasta, that’s it. Although, volume was shrimp was generous enough. You have to add a bit of salt, pepper and parmesan too.

I ordered the Aglio Olio for Php 340

I thought the dish is a no brainer, meaning it would be safe – a good taste no matter what. I was wrong. It lacks something. :/ We had to ask for additional oil and parmesan too. But it’s still missing something.

Jude insisted we order Onion Stack for Php 240

This dish saved the reputation. The Aioli Dip is THE BOMB. ❤ The onion rings are good! No matter how big it looked, I swear it’s not all flour!

I’m disappointed. I have been waiting to eat here and had really high expectations especially when I saw their price range. They are a bit expensive. The pasta serving is huge but sadly, the taste did not justify their price.

No. I won’t be eating here again. :/ On second thought — a quick meeting will do. A coffee and an onion stack would be nice. ❤
