Maginhawa (convenient or comfortable for those who are nahireypeyn meg-Tegelog) is a street in Teacher’s Village, Quezon City. It has long been a haven of hole-in-the-wall restaurants and cafes. A regular glutton’s paradise.
I recently discovered two great food establishments that will make any foodie, or actually anyone hungry, sumptuously satisfied: Indonyaki and Artsy Cafe.
Pinoy favorites given a tasty little twist, now that is what Café Bola is all about.
Located at the Smart Araneta Coliseum, this little corner of Pinoy gastronomic happiness, by Cibo’s momma Margarita Fores, is a frequent lunch favorite for me.
Unpretentious and homey, Bola is direct to the point: good food with no frills.
So let me give you my top three Café Bola favorites:
Not that I am bitter! Just in case you, dear reader, are. Or maybe you just want something sweet because you have a bitter taste in your mouth right now…
Christmas is the one time of the year that I get a lot of sweet little things from people. Because Valentine’s is a thing of fiction for me and I celebrate it by reading about the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre instead. Because I am hardcore like that… [insert Bitterness #1]
Anyway, the point is that I love receiving sweet treats as presents during Christmas because 1.) it is great for sweet tooth attacks, 2.) I would rather eat a present rather than be stuck with it or recycle it as another gift [insert Bitterness #2], and 3.) I do not, whatsoever, feel guilty about eating mounds of sugar bliss because I never get fat anyway [insert…well, that’s a bittersweet fact actually…].
