Lunch at Cafe Mary Grace




Almost two weeks ago we were in Alabang Town Center and I can’t remember why, hehe! It was lunchtime so most of the restaurants were full and it was not easy to look for a restaurant then I saw Café Mary Grace. We were lucky that there’s still an available table for us. It was our first time in Café Mary Grace so while browsing the menu I noticed that they don’t serve rice meals but we don’t want to find another restaurant so we just ordered Carbonara, Grilled Chicken with Couscous, Ensaymada, and Lemon Chiffon.


While waiting for our order, we were eating Ensaymada P73 and Lemon Chiffon P55. Ensaymada and Lemon Chiffon were yummy but I think it is expensive. Pang P30 below lang ang afford ko and masarap na yun, hello Goldilocks and Red Ribbon. Hehehe!



While ordering, I asked the staff what is their signature pasta, she said Creamy Mushroom Pasta and Carbonara, I chose carbonara kasi may bacon. Infairness, it was really good, we love the creaminess of their carbonara.


Grilled Chicken with Couscous, I’ve meaning to taste the couscous, name pa lang sosyal na but we did not like it, as in nagkatinginan kami ni hubby nung natikman namin. I don’t like the texture; honestly, it is like eating sand. Hehehe! (nakatikim na ba ko ng sand?) Surprisingly, my son liked it and he ate half of it. 


Update: February 26 2018

It's been years since the last time I visited Cafe Mary Grace because we usually eat lunch in the mall and as far as I know, wala rice meal sa Cafe Mary Grace. I haven't checked their menu lang kung may nagbago na ba, let me know. 



Anyway, they already have a branch in Festival Mall so before going home last Saturday, I ordered 6 pcs of Classic Cheese Roll for P320, you can buy one piece at P55. We liked the cheese roll, it is true to his words "soft to the bite, freshness always". The bread is really soft and even I put it in the fridge, the bread is still soft when you eat it. By the way, their famous ensaymada is P85 per piece, laki na ng inflation. hehehe! Next time, I will try their cakes and other pastries.
