We did celebrate the Sunday , Mother's Day, but we weren't able to go to a nice restaurant because almost all were full but it was still okay. So we decided to go out for dinner the next day at FELIX at Greenbelt 5, Makati.
My kids loved it here as well, too lucky there weren't many diners when we were there, My youngest Danica is as frisky as she could get. So it was cool to bring out my camera and capture moments, especially the food.
We had a creamy mushroom soup first, which my kiddos enjoyed, Clare, a five-mushroom soup with oyster chips.
We then ordered, San Raphael, cracker-like, thinly sliced lechon kawali with a nice lechon sauce and slightly spiced cane vineagar. Sinful but less guilty, since having fried like this, the fats have been drained out.
As you can see, the titles of the food were short yet intriguing, why didn't I ever ask the waiters how each recipe was named. That's how I like Chef Florabel's way of communicating to her diners, somehow her dishes portray a character as if they are presented as stars in a show. I remember how Crisostomo's Menu was like, as if Noli Me Tangere was haunting me till now.
To end, going back to Felix is something I will always look forward to, with or without my family. The ambiance is very relaxing with a touch of elegance, I love the beige fleur de lis walls and milky leathered comfy chairs. It was at first hard to choose which one to get, that would always be a dilemma dining with kids. But the knowledgeable staff was gracious enough to give us good suggestions, which most waiters in other restos falter. We didn't have to ask for water refills, the food were served fast, as expected in a day like that. And judging by the pictures, the drool-worthy dishes we had gave us more of the feel-good moments without feeling sluggish and robbed off.
