One of my favorite songs is “After All”, by Peter Cetera.
I know it’s an old song, but there is just something about it that draws me big time. I just feel the sincerity of the lyrics, and how it has captured the scenes in the movie “Chances Are”. OMG. If you haven’t watched it, you have to! You get to see the baby Robert Downey, Jr.!
I am getting ahead of myself here, so allow me to put justice on the title on why this could be your next, or probably your permanent girls’ night out hang-out place!
- There is so much history in the name
Okay, so I think I am just so biased on this one because I really love the movie where it was the theme song!
I was quite curious about this up and coming restaurant who share the same name. I was wondering why did they name it “After All” after all. ;p
It turns out that the group who owns the restaurant chose from a list of songs they all love. Naturally, you know what won! 🙂
“Good times” by the Jackson 5 was one of the choices, but I guess the words are too mainstream, so choosing “lesser heard words” and “not typically used words for hashtags” might be a good brand to capitalize on. OMG! This is the social media and SEO bug venom creeping in!
2. The ambiance of the place reminds you of a crossbreed of a restaurant and a pub.
There were a lot of people in the restaurant considering it was a Thursday night, and they were just on their 17th day of operation! Woah! 🙂
The crowd was a mix of generation X, millennials and baby boomers! It’s actually a perfect place for an after-work hangout or a girls’ night.
3. Amazing menu awaits the foodie and the nottie!
We were served a lot of dishes that night and I cannot stress how delicious they are! I was there on Thursday night, and I went back Monday for lunch tagging along with some girl friends!
This is the kind of lunch you would want everyday, right? For only P150, the meal is complete! Not to mention savory! 🙂
Their recipes are modern and unique, they often add some new twists and flavors to give each dish a rewarding and palatable gastronomic experience!
4. Recipe drinks are available, and you’ll love them even if you’re not very close with alcohol!
We were served drinks to complement the appealing flavors we were eating. I am not a drinker, you know that, and for someone who is not a fan of alcohol, it was a surprise how I loved devouring their recipe drinks.
I think I owe it to how they blended the concoctions well, masking the taste of alcohol and lifting the tasty and fruity aroma instead!
Oh look at this one, we have the same color! Haha 😀
5. Cool tunes of the band will serenade your night away!
I was lucky enough to get to know the lead vocalist that night! Hi Gin Papin!
She is not just a beautiful splitting image of Beauty Gonzales, but she is also exceptionally talented! Not to mention very sweet!
She sang “Always Forever” and “We Found Love” – the two important songs for me and my fiance. She sang them immediately after I shared how these songs are tantamount in our love story.
We were able to find an introduction and the short chitchat seemed like we’ve been friends forever!
So one thing is for sure, you can request songs, and get amazing vocals in the background while having the best time with your friends!
I could go on and on, but this is probably the best food blog experience I had! I am definitely coming back!
