The surprise find in the area was Le Cheat, it is a restaurant and bar with hip food offering definitely fit for the kind of crowd in the place. You know, La Salle and St. Scho? They sell comfort fusion food x Artisanal Cocktail Experience.
Milkqaukes, quesodillos, raw-rritos, stella, craft burgers. Pangalan palang so chic na. Add to the modern vibe of the place pa. It lies at the street corner opposite Hotel Benilde and the mural on the wall immediately got my attention. I knew the place is nice then and there.
We tried Berry Me with Kisses milkquake and Choco Piñacollada Mocktail. The difference between milkquakes and mocktails is that the latter has cocktail mix. The milkquake was a bit little over sweetness but the mocktail comes with a perfect kick. All milkquakes for 145php and all mocktails for 185php. Not so much for the budget conscious but it's a nice place to indulge from time to time.
We also sampled Sure of Churros (speculoos, nutella), 170php for around 7 or 8 pcs. A little odd-shaped churros they have here at Le cheat, roundish but surprisingly floppy plus the right crunchiness to it and the fullness of the dough. Comes perfect with the nutella dip. Add the milkquakes and you are in for a pleasant snack, the lovely interior makes the whole dining experience fun.
Other things, the mood, the ambiance, the nice interiors, I hope the pics said it all . ^^
