Happy New Year; happy 2015!
I wish to spend more time on the bed this morning. Waste my time. Disconnect.
But I thought, I did most of that during the holidays last year. I pushed myself to write more stories that I like to inspire me to do more this year. I decided to write about one of the things I love – food and Italian restaurant!
I discovered this Italian Restaurant called Linguini Fini in SM Mega Fashion Hall last year – after our fun pole dancing experience in Pole Cats Manila.
Ever since I tried the Italian Buffet in Frankie Tomatto’s Markham, I always pray for a good Italian Restaurant to come in Manila. Linguini Fini answered my prayers.
It is hard to miss the Linguini Fini with its awesome murals and wall art depicting Filipino icons and culture. I later found out they are work of Dee Jae Paestre. You can recognize Jose Rizal and Manny Pacquiao. The place gives a sports-bar-slash-diner-feel. The kind of ambiance that you can only expect from a free-standing restaurant.
The servers are very proud of the restaurant and they lovingly shared the story of Linguini Fini. The original restaurant is from Hong Kong where roots and inspiration is from New York – where they advocate the use of organic and fresh, 100% ingredients. I love that Linguini Fini supports local farmers. Please read about my organic farm tour in Bacolod over here.
Now, let’s see what are the goods from the kitchen. It helps that we have Pao (who originally planned this lunch in Linguini Fini) and Mother Henn and Mother Earth who all love Italian food.
I would have wanted to try the desserts, but we were so full. Now that gives me a reason to come back soon 🙂 I would say, Php1,500 is a safe budget to bring for a date. Okay, I hate writing about food because it makes me insanely hungry and craving. I better grab something from the left over food last night.
