CLUC'S CAFE



My attention was immediately caught by a message on the Marikina Food Trip page saying that there's this new cafe at Concepcion by the name of CLUC'S CAFE. I was quite excited to check it out since we live near the area, so we included in our plans a food trip to Cluc's for the following weekend.

It wasn't that hard to locate, if you're familiar with Bogg's building then that's where this is. Also, coming from JP Rizal-Lamuan towards the direction of Concepcion, once you see Luyong and the Mercury Drug, turn right. Keep your eyes to your left and you'll see Cluc's Cafe's signs.

The place is spacious, I've been told that receptions, parties and other special occasions have been celebrated here since they opened.

 A TV, in case you want to catch up on some basketball game, or, like us, Cartoon Network. hehe!

Next time I dine at Cluc's I'll sit in this comfy corner ;-)

 There's outdoor dining to, for those who prefer it al fresco

So, are you ready for some food SHOW? (I cannot put the word p*rn because my site gets blocked, for some of my readers who have really efficient firewalls haha) This post is picture-heavy, because the cafe people at Cluc's are so nice that we tried one dish after another. Mmmmm. Food.

On with the show!

Crispy Fish Burger (110 PhP) My sister loves this! Fried Dory fish fillet served on sesame bun with garlic mayo, lettuce, tomato, cucumber and emmental cheese.

 Bolognese (190 PhP) Spaghetti with meat sauce, topped with basil and parmesan cheese. I love this!

Blueberry Chicken Wings. Crispy, sweet, and new to my palate. This will be included in their upcoming menu. Thank you Cluc's for giving our tummies a sneak peek!

Chicken Burger (125 PhP) Quarter of a kilo chicken patty with mayo, mustard, catsup, lettuce, cheddar cheese, tomato and cucumber. The patty was really heavy, and delish, of course.

Classic Cheeseburger (135 PhP) Quarter of a kilo pure beef patty with mayonnaise, mustard and catsup dressing, lettuce, cheddar cheese, tomato and cucumber. Just like how any good ol' cheeseburger should be. Yum. The patty in this burger was really moist.

Hungarian Sausage --- coming soon as well :-) Mom's favorite, as usual.

Cluc's also serves my (and my hubby's) ultimate comfort food: Mac and Cheese (95 PhP) Macaroni coated with Cluc's cheese sauce, topped with fresh basil and parmesan cheese. Hmm, must run back to Cluc's for this. Hehe!

Nachos (110 PhP) Crispy tortilla chips with chili con carne, salsa, black olives, jalapeno peppers and cheese sauce.

This one we really, really, really love: Mixed Berries Pancake! Can't wait to have Cluc's include this in their menu as well. Good job with the pancakes, Cluc's Cafe's Chef!

Crunchy and meaty rolls. Mmmm! Classic. I wanted to order Cluc's Champorado but my tummy said stop. Haha!

Well, I haven't even told you about the drinks. Yet.

Sis enjoying her Strawberries and Cream (135 / 155 / 175 PhP for 12oz / 16 oz / 21 oz)

Irish Coffee (Spiked!) Tip: DO NOT MIX. This one, also something to look forward to in their new menu!

Mocha Jiggle (145 / 165 / 185 PhP for 12 oz / 16 oz / 21 oz) Very refreshing!

Another surprise item you'll watch out for: the Black Forest :-) Yum!

I had my reliable "gang" finish up some of the items (I had to control my caffeine intake: preggers!)

I really love these blueberry wings!

Go ahead and line 'em up!!!

 Tumbler me wants! And the jeepney too! Hehe!

 Souvenir items corner. I see Juan City Market too!

 Another great hangout place in Marikina ;-) 

Pens and mugs

Cute buttons!

Thank God for bringing these awesome places to Marikina. Check out Cluc's Cafe and indulge in comfort food! The servings are quite big so sharing is also possible, unless you come in famished. ;-) They also have all-day breakfasts and entrees such as lechon kawali binagoongan and salt and pepper pork ribs. Must try those when we come back!

P.S. We'd like to give a shout out to our waiter that day, Christian, for excellent dining service. Thanks!

RUSTIC MORNINGS by ISABELO



We were back at Isabelo to check out their breakfast-all-day offering RUSTIC MORNINGS. I looooove breakfast, and I was quite excited to try their menu with Mom and Sis. I previously had dinner at Isabelo, and the place is as lovely in the morning as it is at night.

 Sit back and relax

 My favorite dining buddies

 Here fishy fishy!

 Such a lovely dining place

  Cute!

I want these at home too! Hehe!    

 Plump!

 She sells seashells by the seashore

Aha!

After going around a bit, breakfast was served. I remember my Mom always telling us to never skip breakfast, because you'll never know when you can have your next meal the time you leave the house. :-)

Crispy waffle served with homemade pancake syrup (150 PhP) with additional crunchy banana topping (18 PhP)

 Mmmmm yummy pancake syrup!

 French toast, herbed hash browns and bacon (220 PhP). Gotta go back for those herbed hash browns!!!

BBQ pulled pork crackling served with a scoop of egg salad (260 PhP)

Hot chocolate

A perfect breakfast place to unwind... and eat on a Sunday morning. Oh, they serve breakfast every day of the week, from 8am to 4pm, no reservations required! Just come with a hungry stomach. :-)

 Baby in my tummy says Mommy, this is gooooooood! Hehe ;-)
