Hooray for Museum Café as they now offer Summer Merienda deals. Comfort food at its finest bringing local and some foreign favorites as well.
They offer our favorite Arroz Caldo, Pizza, Pasta, Dimsum, Lumpia, and some thirst quenchers perfect to beat the heat! What more exciting is that they offer this in a combo. You can choose among the following:
Arroz Caldo + Tokwa’t Baboy (220php)
The soft sweet rice grains and the crunchy perfectly cooked pork and tofu with soy sauce and vinegar.
All the flavor just burst in your mouth.
Batchoy + Lumpia Kabila (220php)
The noodles were firm and the soup was tasty too. I liked that it does not have that too much umami taste to it.
Lumpia has fresh vegetables in it. It also has that’ web-like’ wrap that makes it look so Instagram worthy and the taste was just as good as it looks.
Chicken Noodles + Dimsum (220php)
Chicken Noodles is something that you’d be wanting to cure a hangover.
It tasted a bit bland so the soy sauce and other seasoning would help. The Dimsum tasted sooo good. One bite, and you can taste all the meat and shrimp inside.
Pancit Kabila + Fried Lumpia (220php)
The firm noodles and fresh vegetables were coated with its sauce and it’s just delicious. The crispy Bagnet added more flavor to the already well seasoned Pancit.
This is so good with Vinegar. Vegetables inside was still crisp after being deep fried.
Congee + Dimsum (250php)
The thick soup of the porridge with fresh egg. Beat it for that added creaminess. It tasted really good. No need to add any fish sauce or garlic, in my opinion.
Dimsum is great paired with this too.
Seafood Linguini + Pizza (275php)
Seafood were tender and tasty! Sauce was a bit sour just like what I wanted. I just wish they could add more seafood in it.
The Pizza tasted ok. I was looking for meat in it, seemed like there’s only tomatoes, some herbs, and cheese.
We’re also able to try their coolers to beat the summer heat.
The Mango Maja with some Nata de Coco were soft and the Mango flavor really is evident in every bite. Add milk to have an extra creaminess to it.
Saba con Yelo (175php)
I find the Saba a bit chewy. I think it should be cooked a few more minutes.
For drinks, have yourself some refreshing Lychee and Mango. Both were such quenchers. Perfect for Summer weather.
Here’s the poster for your reference on which one to get on your visit.
Overall, I enjoyed the time I spent here in Museum Café. Don’t expect huge servings on each dishes since it’s a combo. I find its price relatively cheap for a place in Makati. There’s a lot of people in the evening as per the manager, so this is probably a good time to enjoy the place as it was lax and does not have much crowd. Food, service and ambiance were impeccable. Definitely be coming back for more meals here in Museum Café.
