Culasa

After school today, I had my lunch in a dainty café here in Palanan, Makati named Culasa, which is a quirky name for a café. Anyhoots, I decided to give this all pink resto a try, since they offer Lunch Specials at 99 Php (which is still expensive for a student on a budget!). 😛 Btw, Culasa offers a wide range of meals from pastas to sandwiches, pastries to beef and pork meals.

Entering the café has a girly and homely feel, the place is not drastically cold but just enough to relieve the heat. I ordered the Chix Steak for Lunch and gave in to my chocolate desires with their Nutella cake (150 Php, still expensive but my sweet tooth is driving me crazy). You can sit down and the waitress would hand over the menu like in a typical restaurant, but I didn’t haha #gutom. I ordered and paid for it on the counter, which totally fine and be sure to keep your receipt! 🙂

My main course took around 3-5 minutes before serving and boy it was hot! Staring at it made me count the number of carbs I am about to consume! Haha 😛

It was quite a heavy meal for lunch. The chicken fillet and gravy sauce tastes good albeit almost similar to KFC’s Chicken strips minus the parsley bits. But in comparison, this one is more filling. I had a hard time finishing my meal, good thing my dress had no zipper or buttons that would pop! 😛 That would be embarrassing.

The Nutella Cake

However, the Nutella Cake wasn’t as good as I expected. Yep, no hint of Nutella taste 😦 and the chiffon texture was a too dry for me, but would it satisfy my craving for chocolates? Yeah, it would suffice. Perhaps, I should try the Nutella Fudge next time and that costs around 55 Php per piece. o_O Nevertheless, it is good to give in to new things and surroundings once in a while. Overall the lunch wasn’t so bad, but for a student with a tight budget it would make you think twice to spend that much. 😉
