Cafe Mamia


I haven't been to Dumaguete City since the early 90's and was very excited about our trip. Predictably, food overrules the tourist spots in the city. After arriving from our early morning flight, we freshened up a bit and headed off to Cafe Mamia for breakfast.









Churros con tsokolate. The tsokolate was rich and yummy; no hint of grainy texture. The churros was, well ... hmmmmm ... I prefer the ones from Dulcinea. This churros was on the heavy side.




Tapsilog or beef tapa breakfast. Excellent! The beef was very tender and the flavors not overpowering. I also love the garlic rice. Yum yum yum.




Iced-chocolate and pudding. Upon first sip, I was transported back in time. This was how my mother served iced-chocolate. Chocolate milk + chocolate syrup.




Mushroom omelette. Good but not that memorable.
