Cafe by the Ruins; a romantic threesome valentine’s dinner

After doing our research online and after reading good reviews about Cafe by the Ruins, we made sure we don’t miss this one out. The place was just perfect for a romantic threesome valentine’s dinner. The light was dim, the breeze was cold, and the place was cozy with a candle lit table for 3. The order was just a little bit slow at that time, and we could understand because it was valentines and the restaurant was full. We even sat in the waiting area for few minutes, waiting for our turn.

The food was just okay; nothing special, but nothing ordinary too. I had an “Americano”. It’s a long black coffee; double ristretto with hot water. Ristretto, according to Wikipedia.com, “is traditionally a short shot of espresso coffee made with the normal amount of ground coffee but extracted with about half the amount of water.” While my two (2) other friends had a Macchiato (an espresso topped with frothed milk), and “Ruins Herb Tea” (Infusion of lemon grass and mint leaves with honey and a lemon wedge on the side. Served by the pot.)

And, to go with our coffee and tea, we had some pandesal (A traditional Filipino bread, usually served during breakfast) together with “Kesong Puti (cottage cheese) and Basil” and “Fish Roe Pate” (Salted fish roe blended with cream and butter.) And although the “Fish Roe Pate” was really delicious, it would have been best served if it’s not “stone” cold, so that it can easily be spread on top of the bread.

Right after our light dinner, we went back to the hotel to pick up our bags and went straight to the Victory Liner terminal. We waited for an hour or 2, as we relaxed for few minutes on one of the massage chair that is available, and take a short nap at the waiting area while waiting for our assigned bus.

Our bus left on time, and the whole trip took about 5 hours. We went down at Dau Terminal, and took the Airport shuttle (van) going to Clark International Airport. Just ask any bystanders for the shuttle; a simple lounge is available for the passenger’s convenience. The fare costs P100 per person, and don’t be duped, since the collector tried to ask for more for each luggage that he loaded to the van.
