Le Petit Chéri – Molito Alabang

As the French said: “Bon Apetit!”

Le Petit Cheri… “The little darling…”

Long before guests flocked to this new French restaurant that I recently discovered with my in-laws a few weeks ago, which is located in Molito, Alabang.

Molito, Alabang

I have always been in this area since my high school days and it had been my rendezvous from then on. It was the nearest mall at that time, and being an only child, I happen into that generation when parents are still strict and going far from home is a no no to them. Alabang, as a teenager, became my heaven on earth. Everything that I need is there.

Just recently, one whole block that used to be vacant for years is now a block with restaurants of all kinds lining up. My friend commented that it is similar to Nuvali in Sta. Rosa, Laguna. My take is, it’s the trend now. The Food & Beverage industry is giving us Filipinos, a wide array of choices as to where to drink and dine, as we are very much known to be Food lovers. As the movie said:

people who lovew to eat
“People who love to eat are always the best people.”

On first queue is Le Petit Cheri. It is a French restaurant offering breakfast, brunch, lunch, snack and dinner. They serve the usual French cuisine making Filipinos settle for a different taste from time to time. The line up on that block includes Japanese restaurants, Mexican, Chinese, Filipino/ Spanish (I saw Cafe Juanita – which pilot branch is in Pasig, though I like the one in Burgos circle, Bonifacio Global City), Booze bars,  and many others.

Le Petit Cherie – Little darling…

I agreed with my friend, not only in Nuvali, I see the resemblance in many areas in Makati, Ortigas, Bonifacio Global City and even in Cagayan De Oro City. Yet, Alabang, aside from being close to my house, has been closer to my heart for years. It was like home to me. My comfort zone. Finding out about Molito gave me excitement like that of a child. At first glance, I knew then it’s going to be another home for me, when eating out is the theme.

Take a look inside:

Molito, expect me repeatedly… =) As a food lover like most Filipinos, I noticed the trending flux in our country, restaurants loom here and there, each has a special offering, not only their food but the interiors, service and theme of their place as well. This affinity includes me in the list. Eating out especially with old friends and family is a way of life not only of me but of most Filipinos.

My newest rendezvous! =)


They invented the word “Molito” to paraphrase a small mall. Cute! Isn’t it?

-An only daughter. A mother of a 22 year old son. Passionate with so many things. A lover of life itself. First of which is to write. Then, sing (I specifically love the stage), read, cook, travel & take beautiful pictures (photography) and scrap booking, all of which are my own way of coping with life's challenges. Lately, I have been enjoying quilting and crafting with beaded fabrics. Friends usually associate me with the color violet. I love this color so much! However, I love pink, red, teal, orange, yellow as well! Coffee is my water and my happy food is cheesecake topped w/ blueberries, frozen yogurt, sansrival and cream puff. I mastered fettuccine carbonara because that is one of my favorite food along w/ broccoli with prawns and mushrooms. Of all the International cuisines, Japanese food is on top of my list. Secretly, I love "Stitch" - that grinning indigo pup. =) Seriously, I dream to become a philanthropist (starting off by providing shelter to street children in our country) and a famous author someday. I'm just waiting for God's time for my first book to be published.- It took me years to decide to blog, more so to write and have it out in the open. I started writing even as a child, I just keep them on file. It was my outlet. Approaching the year(s) they say where life begins, or If I may say, the sweeter life. It was a year full of emotions. As I lost both my parents already, the unfathomable sadness prompted me to pour them out in my writings and share them to the world, hoping it might lighten the heaviness of my heart. I live now with my son as a mother and as a daughter (as a friend and a sister), this has made me be ready to finally do what I am meant to do. Even If there's a lot that I wanted to do. This came first, like a first love that occupied a special place in my heart. It's a looong process, tiring, frustrating, exciting. The best part? is the happiness it brings. Even if things around seems all so wrong. It's like having my own place under the sun. My own safe and happy rainbowed world. At times, there's guilt as well, for I strongly believe, writing (like singing) is a talent God has gifted us. We ought to use it and maximize it, in our littlest way, share it to mankind, for His glory. I just had a few distractions over the years and to realize that it is never too late to be who we ought to be, I have this very strong feeling, now is the time. All my life, I have decided on things that made me happy, this is one of those. I may never be a winner of those best blogs that have been awarded to talented writers/ bloggers and I don't mind, there are strikes of being envious, but according to my father, there are two kinds of being envy. There's envy that is negative, it'll hamper you from doing good and there's an envy that makes you happy for others' success, or seeing yourself in their shoes, I think, the kind of envy in me, is the latter. Like celebrities who missed an Oscar, while the film was watched by the whole world, she/he did not mind, it's like knowing what counts best, and it's the capacity to share your talents to anyone who wants to receive it, without asking anything in return. Expressing what's in my heart and mind on every occasion (which happens to be daily) and being happy about it is like a prize already. Happy reading!(--,)
