The Old Spaghetti House

Posted: January 29, 2017 in Uncategorized

I visited The Old Spaghetti House early  January.  This is therefore a very late post and I hope my memory will serve me well. I was with seaman when I first saw this in SM. The pasta all you can restaurant for only 149 pesos is just so enticing you can’t say no. However, I was with seaman that time who will only take dinner there because I said so. I later decided that we go to Majestic instead because I know he won’t enjoy the food. He will be leaving soon so that was sort of my gift to him to not be a spoiled brat once in my life.

It was only when I went out with my dearest friend Ann that we decided to have our dinner there before we have coffee at cafe Philosophia at Mandaue. She’s been here a couple of times and was still ecstatic on dining here. She must love pasta that much!

To be honest I am not a pasta lover. I don’t even have an inkling that there are so many choices. like Alfredo, Pomodoro pesto, vietnamese etc etc. until I actually went here. I had to ask for pictures of what they are going to serve me before I made my choice. Had a hard time.

We add 50 pesos and we already had a choice of 1 viand or unlimited pizza. Ann had the unlimited pizza and I had 1 viand.

Even when I am not a pasta lover I could tell that they are delicious. Just don’t ask me what kind of pasta I ate because I will get everything mixed up.

pizza

Ms. Ann’s pizza . She obviously loves it

chicken-nuggets

Fried chicken fillet  . Lab it!

And…… other than the pasta and their pizza I go crazy about the restaurant’s interior.It’s just so classy and I so love the ambiance. I could stay here for hours…

You just cannot help but love this place

The staffs were amazing too. My phone was lowbat and they allowed me to charge my phone for free.

Like most if not all eat-all-you can restaurants. Strictly no left overs. They served big portions so I asked the staff to not serve too many. I want to try all the pastas available and I won’t be able to do it if I have to struggle finishing one pasta to another.

I was all smiles

The unlimited pasta is available only from 5:00-9:00 pm. NO worries about seat reservations. The restaurant is not always busy.

I would like to recommend this restaurant to pasta lovers out there. You should give it a try. This will make your day !

restuarant-nameThe restaurant is located at Don Gil Garcia Street, Capitol Site, Cebu. It’s a very small restaurant you won’t even know it actually existed. It was my friend Ms. Ann who suggested that we dine here.

I was excited to dine here because it’s not only a Japanese restaurant but a Filipino restaurant too. Not just that, paying 299 pesos is very affordable for an eat-all-you-can Japanese restaurant.

We were here for dinner and the restaurant was packed. I think it can accommodate less than 50 people in one setting. Good thing that my friend Ann made reservations for us. Should you decide to come here especially for dinner, make sure to call (032) 319-0078 for your reservation. You don’t like to go here hungry and wait for your turn.

menu

The Menu

Each person can order only 3 dish from the menu at a time. Meaning you can have your next 3 sets after all 3 orders have been served.

fud-1

shumai. I love siomai but this one is just gross. I never liked it. If you want to go here I suggest you skip ordering this one. Siomai sa tisa is far way better than this

fud-2

Tasty ramen. This one I like… Thumbs up for this.

fud-3

Katsudon

fud-5

Lumpia. They make the best pork lumpia ever!!!! I lab lab this soooo much

fud-6

This one I can’t remember the name and I don’t like how it tasted. Maybe because I only like plain rice. Must be…

fud-7

Pork sisig. It didn’t wow me but it was good. Only it was too oily

Overall the dining experience was good. They have a very attentive waitress. The food is delish .Be very careful not to order more that what you can actually consume. They will make you pay 100 pesos for each unfinished plate.

We had fun. We were too full to eat all but that was okay.

Ms. Ann and I. Thank you for the friendship 🙂

I suggest that when you go to capitol, you should check out this restaurant. They are open from 11:00 am -2:00 pm and from 5:00 pm-10:30 pm. And don’t forget to make a reservation 😉

Kogi-Q at Parkmall

I know the photo is not good but I still choose to post it and insist on not editing it. LOL

Kogi- Q is in Parkmall. It’s a Korean eat-all-you-can restaurant. There’s a lot of restaurants like this in Cebu but this one stands out. Not because its exceptionally delicious but because of its affordability. I’ve tried one in Mactan ( I won’t mention the name but I have blogged about it a year ago)  and its like around 500 pesos , drinks not included.  The taste is the same . Almost same food with the exception of the angus beef the other restaurant has, all else, the same.

The price is very reasonable and already you can enjoy unlimited chicken wings, samgyeopsal, marinated squid, hotdogs and many more.

With my friend Ms. Ann. We like to dine out and I think this will not be the last 🙂

20161123_201528

I cannot complain. The place is clean.

Ready to attack 😉

With good company , everything was perfect. I had my tummy full and my spirit back to normal. Ms. Ann is a great companion. I’ve decided to keep her as a friend for life.

You should try it here one of these days. You will never be sorry.Just prepare your 270 pesos and your tip of course.

I am bored , so bored that no matter how I try to scrounge for inspiration, I just can’t. I tried cleaning my room and posting something in instagram and I still am bored like hell. I thought I am irredeemable. But wait…. Just wait…. Last week I went to PhiloSophia Library cafe and bang! There goes my inspiration.

Philosophia Library Cafe is a library cafe located in Maguikay Mandaue just before the flyover in National Highway. With its very catchy exterior, it would be no effort to look for the place.

The cafe owner Caroline Porras (got her name from my research) did an amazing job conceptualizing this cafe. I and my friend just fell in love with it. I am no coffee lover. Been to starbucks and boss coffee a few times in my life and forgive me but I just couldn’t tell you which is better. I could tell you though that they have super delish cakes. I had my all time favorite mango cheesecake and it never failed me. Lab it!

If you’ll love the exterior wait until you see the interior designs. 😉

20170103_210450

My mango cheesecake that costs only 131.00 pesos. I cannot complain. When I saw it, i thought it should be good and it was!

20170103_211254

With my forever friendship Ms. Ann Cawaling. The in-charge of this cafe is an amazing woman. She was very accommodating. Even offered to take several photos of us. I gave her the biggest tip I ever gave someone. 🙂

20170103_211605

One of the books. I only had the chance to browse 3 or 2 of the books. The other one was all about Cebu featuring most of the places I’ve been. Exciting maybe to a few people but I honestly find the book rather uninteresting. Forgive me

20170103_211632

I asked the in-charge if they have any novels. Was disappointed that they don’t have. Maybe bec. a novel will have to be a long read. But I hope they can put one or 2 for people who are novel fanatics like me

ONe word for the place. Cozy….

img_20170103_213646

I decided that this is my favorite part of the cafe. I want to have this kind of wall at home. So relaxing and inspiring

img_20170103_213840

Cafe Mocha & Cafe Latte @ 120.oo pesos I think what my friend had was choco muffin @ 60.00 pesos

I don’t know why the place was deserted when we came here last week. I expected a full house. We were there around 9:00 pm. We had the place all by ourselves which is good.

It will be a crime for any coffee lover to not visit here. This place is just awesome. The price is right. With an excellent ambiance, good coffee and an amazing staff. You can’t go wrong!

By the way, a lot of people might think the place is expensive so I might as well give you the price range to encourage you to come. The Turkey-like place isn’t expensive after all.

Coffee rate ranges from 60-120 pesos

Cold Drinks rate ranges from 20-130 pesos.

Blended Coffee rate ranges from 120-130 pesos

Cakes & pastries rate ranges from 28-136 pesos

They also sell beers at 45.00 pesos

I give a two thumbs up for this place.

I, in-fact would like to go back here for another cheesecake. I hope they will have more books for poetry or if they can, I hope to read novels next time.
