Mom and Tina's Bakery Cafe, Katipunan

Last Sunday,  our usual Katipunan stop to bring Anton to his condo brought us Mom and Tina's Bakery Cafe. Tired of the usual fast-food  choices we opted for this quaint looking restaurant on the FDRC Building along E. Rodriguez.

According to their website, Mom and Tina's started as a mother-daughter past time. Now with two branches, the tandem has created a cozy place to dine and enjoy their baked goods.

For starters, I had their Homemade soup (PHP 55). This is half a serving and this comes with their amazing garlic cheese rolls. This reminded me of my mom's sopas. 

I ordered a pasta dish called Smoked Salmon and Capers (PHP 240). This pasta has a generous serving of salmon, which is great because that's something you find rare these days. Though I found this dish a little bland, a little parmesan cheese fixed that for me. This also came with the garlic cheese rolls which was quickly becoming a favorite for me.

Camille's Beef Stew (PHP 205).

Tatay's Sun Dried Tomato Pesto (PHP 190), also came with the garlic cheese rolls.

Anton's Barbecued Pork Steak (PHP 265). I had a bite of this and it was delicious!

 And since our table was situated in front of their pastry display window, I just had to try their Chicken Empanada (PHP 40).

No good meal ends without desert! We got ourselves a Chocolate Profiterole (PHP 45) mainly because Camille liked how that name sounded. We were not disappointed, this chocolate treat resembled a frozen Tiramisu. Yum! Camille was hinting on buying more of these 45 peso wonder.

 Just before we left, they gave Tatay this as a father's day treat. Isn't it the sweetest thing ever?
