I had been looking forward to the opening of a new breakfast place in Maginhawa Street. Days before the official (soft) opening, I had already placed reservations for two (talk about being excited!!!). Last Saturday, Hon-some and I woke up early to enjoy our favorite meal of the day at The Breakfast Table.
We were charmed by the lovely rustic country interiors done in a palette of blue, beige, and white. We also loved the small details like the shovel and bucket lighting fixtures and placemats made from old denims with the back pocket used for tucking in the cutlery.
Here's how breakfast works at The Breakfast Table. On weekdays, they offer their a la carte menu. Since we visited on a weekend, we were able to avail of their breakfast buffet which was done rodizio-style. Taking inspiration from Brazilians, waiters at The Breakfast Table will keep serving you food until you signal them to stop.
"Keep this side up to signify that our waiters will continue to serve you your breakfast."
"Having this side up means you are done with your breakfast."
And here's the breakfast parade that made our tummies happy: an appetizer of bread chips and kesong puti...
My messy plate with all the breakfast fare: three kinds of longganiza (Batutay, Recado, Tuguegarao), ensaladang itlog na maalat and kamatis, danggit.
Glorious garlic rice
Choco banana bread
I washed all the food down with their taho shake. A must-try!!!
Eating at The Breakfast Table was a pleasurable experience. The ambiance is wonderful, the food is really good especially if you are craving good ol' Filipino fare, and the waiters are attentive and they really know the food they are serving. :) Can't wait to go back. I hear their a la carte menu is just as good.
And just to show that I did not just gorge all weekend, we went to see the lights at Ayala Triangle Gardens. The best one yet in all these years, in our opinion. :)
The weekend that was. :)
