    Our street, Valero, is fast becoming a resto street. Loving all the new ones popping up. There's a new Japanese place across Two Central (across Nono's and Locavore), that I have yet to try. Under it is a new Bon Chon. Some day, I'd hope to have my own resto in this area, something small but cozy. Just a dream for now :)

    Yeah, it stretches past Valero Plaza too. There's a new one near me on Valero called The Flour. I'll probably try it tomorrow.

    I'm guessing that's Little Flour, beside Starbucks Reserve? That's the pinoy version of Wildflour. I'm there once a week, had my wife's baby shower there, too, a couple of weeks ago. Personally, I find it priced a bit on the high side, but it's just across the street (and a hop and a skip) from where we live, so that's where we usually have breakfast (if not Wildflour, or Toby's or Craft Coffee). They had nice fluffy ube pancakes before, but it's not in season now, so they've shifted to ricotta pancakes. The sisig rice bowl is okay, and the usual Little Flour (Wildflour) breakfast is pretty filling. They serve Farmacy ice cream, too, and the usual pastries that the Wildflour Bakery offers.

    The champurado with tawilis was good, better than the arroz caldo (P 380 for arroz caldo?). The filipino breakfast, I didn't really like the patty-like longganisa. The adobo rice bowl is pretty much the same as the sisig rice bowl, just mixed in together. The smaller version is good enough for two na. The avocado toast was quite filling. Salads are always an option, pretty much same salads that they serve at Wildflour.

    I was discouraged by an agent who just came here. He said it was a lower version of Wild Flour but with a "price". Nothing great. I lost my appetite, but I'll still try it.

    Not really a lower version, just the pinoy version of Wildflour. I guess when he meant low, kinda hard to pay similar price to the things we usually get at Wildflour, and pay the same range for typical pinoy food with a twist. Though I get his point, the twist isn't enough din for me, LOL. We went there during my wife's 8th and 9th month of pregnancy, but when we're all up and about, we'll probably stroll the additional 2 blocks to our usual choices: Wildflour, Toby's, or Craft.

    I live in Salcedo Village, too, on some days, so I appreciate this and any reviews of places to eat around the neighborhood, The only ones I frequent so far are Mendokoro, Wholesome Table, and Ikomai. :)

    Cartel is a place worth going to. Sandwiches, coffee, wine, bread...

    Not really a restaurant. But, I was looking at my WiFi connection and saw Taylor's Coffee. I went around my area and found it directly below my office. It's cozy, and they also have milk tea, desserts and some sandwiches. On Fridays, they have what they call open mic. Anyone can sing. This is along Valero on Valero Plaza. It's a bit obscured, but it's a nice place to hang around when you're waiting for someone or for a meeting.

    Any suggestions on a dinner place in BGC, that we can head to for a reunion of 20 people? Niu was a suggestion, we can stay there till it closes, but others thumbed down the idea of a buffet. Any other places you guys can suggest where we can stay and sit and talk about college life?

    They say Wildflour is good but I disagree. First off, the food is rather typical not better than decent carinderias and turo-turo joints. Second, the prices are spectacular and reachable only by a certain segment of society. Of course, them YouTubers and influencers will flame me for that but who gives a shit? We need fine food with manageable prices not some resto that likes to be mentioned and liked in social media.

    Niu is good. That good actually. Maybe will try Moonshine Kitchen if I pass by Glorietta in some cosmic way later.
