Lucky Monday: Pomodoro Pasta for only 69 pesos!!

So to cap off a busy Monday, I decided to treat myself a nice pasta dish from one of my favorite Kapitolyo eateries, Pomodoro Pizza Pasta Kitchen. 

I skipped the long line at the tricycle terminal and counted my steps to this place while trying to decide which plate to devour. Then I found out it’s their annual 69 PASTA Day! Ate said they celebrated it every year without telling the reason behind the kind gesture.

How often do you get lucky on Monday right?

I must have done something good today haha

DINNER

We plan to try this place for special occasions like Christmas but since he’s always on the search for the best steak in town, we didn’t feel the need to have a specific reason to celebrate. So we did. He said steak was great 🙂 The place is very elegant. Perfect for a romantic date. But I felt it was too dark 🙂

Peppermint tea (for the sick boyfriend) to go with the gloomy forecast. Definitely a cherry on top!

 

The Marque

It’s impressive how the brand is stunningly imprinted in almost every detail of the place. Pastel colours and minimalistic style with a dash of flair and panache in all ways.

The bar

Indeed, this place/brand is the epitome of this girl’s great elan. Yes, I had my fan girl moment! Haha I knew she will be there. When we were escorted to our seats, my heart skipped a beat when I saw her seated right next to me. I’m not her first fan but when I did my research and discovered who she was, I fell in love right away. I guess you just know it when you see genuine beauty, talent and character you’ll know she’ll be the leading light. Congratulations, Martine & Team! Hope this reaches you 🙂
