I'm always looking forward to couples date with my TAPE Inc officemates/family that when Mr. Maru Sotto invited us to CHEF AND BREWER CAFE AND RESTAURANT 2 weeks in advance, I really blocked it off in my calendar.
My TAPE Inc. friends can't believe it but the Chinese Adonis and I really love being with them because not only do we learn a lot from their advises, but they are just so fun to be with. They are all super funny, crazy, and "kalog", but with a heart. They totally get my weirdness!!!! He he he he he!!! So even if I haven't been to CHEF AND BREWER, I just know that we are going to have another unforgettable night.
And as predicted, we certainly did!!!!!!!
CHEF AND BREWER CAFE AND RESTAURANT!!!
We went there on a Friday night and we're so thankful that there was no traffic that weekend.
We arrived at about 8:00pm and there were still many available tables. I guess we were early!
CHEF AND BREWER had an old style to it that was very endearing. Suddenly I felt like belting out this theme song from a show about a bar where everybody knows your name.
It's actually quite spacious in CHEF AND BREWER. You could still have an aisle to yourself to do the tango!
Dear Maru was a regular and reserved a table for us.
A very sweet Tita Josie and Tito Rey!
Tita Flory : "ABA!!! TAYO DIN!!!!"
Tita Flory and Tito Ton!

First on the table was an order of Cream of Pumpkin Soup (P220.00)!!

The serving may not be worth the price but still, this was a good chomp!
CHEF AND BREWER Spicy Tuna with Kani Salad (P370.00)!
Greens with Kani Strips and cubes of fresh tuna in Japanese Mayo!
This was SOOOOO yum!!! The tuna was fresh and firm while the greens gave that pleasant crisp to it!!! The salad was so sinfully creamy... Just the way I loved it!
CHEF AND BREWER Chicharon Bulaklak (P370.00)!
So crunchy and salty!!! Perfect with a mound of garlic rice!!!!
CHEF AND BREWER Twice Cooked Pork Adobo (P480.00) was jampacked with garlic, soy sauce, and vinegar flavors!
CHEF AND BREWER'S Roasted Steak with Fries (P750.00).
The steak was thick and had appetizing grill flavorings and spices!
Order this if you're craving for lean meat!
CHEF AND BREWER US Rib-Eye Steak (P1,300.00)!!!
This thick cut of meat had more fatty marbling that definitely suited my hungry taste!
I can't wait to slice into its juicy goodness and devour it with my garlic rice!
Oh happy day!

Selos agad. Ha ha ha ha ha ha!
Ms. Jeny Ferre arrives! Now our table is complete!!!!
There was a live band at CHEF AND BREWER that grooved to the hippy music of the 70s!!!!
I don't know much about 70s music since I'm more familiar with the songs my generation Justin Bieber and One Direction.
Oh this poor generation talaga!
And since the music is jamming, Tita Josie got the Amareto!
As for me, I got the Margarita!
Here's a toast to more good times and night outs ahead!
A toast also goes out to Maru, our favorite Sotto talaga! NAKS!
What a very fun night! We didn't want it to end!!! Thanks dear Maru for the dinner treat! We all had blast!!! Hope you could join us Lola Baes again next time!!!
