CEBU: Cafe Tiala

My last foray to Cebu was in 2012 and there are so many new things and restaurants and coffeeshops to discover during my trip last September. I've made a list of the restaurants I wanted to visit but my friend suggested Cafe Tiala. It also happens that she haven't tried dining at the place yet. Yey!



Cafe Tiala is located somewhere in Bray, if my memory serves me right. It is at the second floor of the Forum Building, along Archbishop Reyes Avenue. A bit hard to find so better keep your eyes open for the pink Cafe Tiala signage. There's not much to see outside the coffeeshop, you can even say that its just like any other coffeeshops around.

These lovely young ladies humored me by posing in front of the camera. At Cafe Tiala, they have an extensive costumes that you can use / wear for a maximum of 2 hours. Aside from the usual sparkly princess gowns, there are also hanboks, anime-ish clothes, and cutey animal costumes like the pink cow worn by the young lady on the photo below.



The staff are in cute "maid" costumes also. Kawaiiiiii !!!


Upon entering the place, you'll notice that it is divided into private dining area, each with a different theme. There's also a mezzanine for larger groups. And did I mention that you have to seat on the floor? Don't worry, they have cushions. :)


They serve desserts, sandwiches, pasta, kimbap, and even ramen. The food is okay but you won't go there for the food- trust me. It is a nice place to hangout with friends and take tons of photos while wearing crazy costumes. There's a time limit though because the place is very much in-demand especially to teens who usually go there to chill out after school.


With me here is my friend's daughter. The panda-head was borrowed from the room next to ours.



Looking forward to dining here again soon. :)

  2. Ay ang cute ng cafe and the food looks yummy! I wasn't able to go on a food trip when I was in Cebu because my son was still a baby (thus malls lang) but I hope I could return soon.

RECIPE: TKG's Pan-Grilled Maya-Maya With Calamansi Butter Sauce

I chanced upon some fresh-looking Maya-Maya being sold near my daughter's school today so I bought some. I don't really have a dish in mind when I bought it. Maybe fried, sinigang ... And upon checking the fridge and pantry (no more olive oil), I decided to marinate the fish in calamansi to remove the fishy taste. I pan-grilled the fish being careful not to burn it. Then I minced some garlic, cooked it in butter, added some salt and poured the sauce on top of the fish. And its ready to eat. And oh, I also steamed some cauliflower as a side-dish. Bon appetit!

PRODUCT REVIEW: XTREME HOME Coffee Machine XH-ESCM

Most of us (Filipinos) have discovered the passion to make a nice cup of coffee especially during the lockdown last year. Remember the Dalgona craze at the onset of the pandemic? From then on, coffee has become a part of our pandemic lifestyle, and this include having a coffee corner at home. 

Bolzico Beef To Go via GrabFood

Since last year, when the Covid-19 pandemic took over the world and made everything stop, most people (me included) resorted to food delivery as it is safer than going to the restaurant, grocery, or market to buy food. One such favorite delivery app is GrabFood.
