Kimchi Kaldereta (Php 390)
Fans of kimchi and kaldereta can rejoice in this dish, fusing the two together in one. The large bowl is good enough for two!
Salmon Benedicts (Php 480)
Tapa Benedicts (Php 350)
Two dishes that, without a doubt, seduce the senses are the Salmon and Tapa Benedicts. And again, since I love salmon, I really couldn’t get enough of the Salmon Benedicts.
Tartufo (Php 260)
If there’s one dish I instantly fell in love with, it was the Tartufo pasta – a pasta with cream-based sauce, truffle oil, and slices of portobello mushroom. The initial bite made me feel so giddy that I couldn’t stop eating it! It was unlike any other truffle oil pasta I had ever tasted. The flavor was just right – not too rich or filling, and not too light that you could barely taste a thing, either. It was perfection.
Banoffee Pie (Php 150)
Pistachio Pavlova (Php 99)
Sweet tooths will certainly go crazy over their desserts, especially the Banoffee Pie and Pistachio Pavlova. Their version of a banoffee pie had cold custard cream that literally melts in your mouth, while the Pavlova’s base was very similar to French macarons – only that the creme and mango toppings add a one-of-a-kind spin to it.
My family and I really enjoyed the evening at Lola Cafe + Bar. It’s a very simple restaurant rich in history and flavor. If you’re a foodie when in Manila, make sure not to miss out on all things good that Lola Cafe + Bar can give. You’ll fall in love with their food just as much as I did.
