Quezon City seems like the quadrangle of Metro Manila. Covering almost one-fourth of the NCR region, the city is almost six times the vastness of Makati City and exactly four times the expanse of Manila, the capital of the Philippines. Visiting this part of Luzon is best done in so-called pocket destinations as selected attractions are best explored in cocooned communities. UP Diliman is one educational tour to be had here. One can also visit Eastwood City as an amusement center that's complete with a mall and strips of commercial and residential spaces. Located at the heart of this exciting spot is a dining comfort zone called Momo Cafe.
"I Love QC!" Blog Series Tour Part 2
Momo Cafe sits right next to the main mall entrance that faces the majestic Eastwood Central Park Lagoon where most visitors and residents casually linger before and after work or during break times. It's also the location of my featured Quezon City lunch for part 2 of my "I Love QC!" Blog Series tour of August, 2014.

Fun Cheese Rolls Starter
After checking out of my blog series tour accommodation base, Cacao Hotel, my lunch commenced with a so-called Fun Family Starter that's also a chef's favorite -- the Jalapeno Cheddarella Cheese Rolls. Served nacho-style, the rolls were crispy and were a good contrast to the the moist texture of the chili beef and beans. Dipped in sour cream, it was nice tasting. Dipped in the beloved Mexican salsa fresca, it was awesome.
I had a couple more of chef's favorites that included a Jumbo Platter of Slow Roasted Herb Beef Fingers. This great-for-sharing dish used US roast beef. It was topped with light sauce or au jus which worked well with the beef. Devoid of the acridness of the garlic, the resulting sweetness of the confit blended well with the meat. I loved switching from the mashed potatoes, the onion rings to the sweet corn side dish to enhance the taste.
The other chef favorite that I sampled was the Seafood Pesto Cream Linguine. Done in the Italian-American way or San Francisco-style, this pasta was served with fresh basil. It complemented well with the provided. sourdough toast.

Milo and Mamon
For dessert, I had two pieces of soft sponge cake that were creatively stacked on a plate of Milo heaps. Crowned with whipped cream, the sweet ending was kid-friendly. Thank goodness I was in the mood for it that day. Momo Cafe calls this its Milo and Mamon MMMMmmmm Good! dessert... and for an obvious reason. Suddenly, I was six again!
With more than 60,000 businesses registered in Quezon City, Momo Cafe stands out as a comfort food dining destination where a visit is always worth a flavorful nostalgia.
