Stumbling upon an indie cafe in crowded Manille can be commonplace. A coffee shop which celebrates rare finds such as a homey atmosphere and no-frills caffeinated heaven is harder to spot. I was delighted to learn that there was a cafe which has the said ambience and get this- talks which promote slow living topics such as paper quilling and writing. I heard that there was a talk on snail mail tonight. Since my boyfriend isn't feeling well, I braved the unknown side (at least for me!) of Quezon City and drove to Testify Coffee and Rare Finds for dinner and dialogue.
Since I already had three cups of coffee today, I decided to skip the brew and just ordered tinapa pasta. Omg it's so good! The smoked fish was nicely cooked and mixed with al dente fettuccine. The result is a dish that's not difficult to love.
I wish more people will try this tiny treasure trove of analogue traditions and tastes. I hope to try their coffee soon!
