Carpe Diem – We just seized the day!
When hunger strikes. The brain works a little less better. We were near BF Paranaque, famished and opted to have a quick lunch over this place which I’m eyeing (Alezon cafe) in Aguirre street and we told the driver to bring us to “Commune cafe”. I got mixed-up and later recalled that it’s not Commune cafe but Cafe Alezon. Since we can’t of course find “Commune” at Aguirre, we ended up at “Carpe diem.” Jen, foodie buddy hungry to death almost killed me. Ehehe! She and the driver. Oooops! sowee!
So it was a blessing in disguise. Carpe diem is so cozy, quiet and gives the feeling of being at home. Each guest has a world of their own and the attendants are “super” courteous or probably because boss is present. No, I guess they are naturally like that, because their boss is as nice too.
So right away we head to their menu board, and I ordered for Carbonara and Jen had Marinara. I hope Miss Spaghetti is happy! =) And we ordered for our coffee as well.
And voila. Happy tummies!
Both of our choices tasted really good. Jen’s red pasta was a little bit spicy and mine has a creamy taste that isn’t so tiring. I especially loved the garlic bread and ordered for another. The second one they served has more garlic on it so Jen had to help me consumed it. =)
Over-all rating. It’s worth a second or third visit. =)
I secretly planned to have dessert from Larcy’s cupcakes, which happens to be just a few blocks away from it. But time is of essence. We can’t afford to stay longer due to several activities waiting for us dinner time.
So till then, Carpe diem and Larcy’s. This is by the way “Food spotting at Aguirre”.
Visit Aguirre and you can spot anything your heart desires. I’ve tried the following already:
1. Toho Antigua – Authentic Chinese restaurant
2. I love yo – Frozen yogurt (although it seems they’re no longer there)
3. Pilot branch of Conti’s
And next on our list is Larcy’s, Cafe Alezon and Mama Lou’s.
Bon appetit! =)
