I was headed for the indoor dining of the McDonald’s at Shaw House, when I was lured by the ambiance of The Canteen instead.
I convinced myself to try their Alfredo pasta, justifying it to myself by thinking that there were not many pasta places that I really liked. Moreover, the alfredo had a “Chef’s Recommendation” next to it. Or maybe low EQ lang ako. :p
When my food was served, my initial reaction was, “Ay, ang onti.” But as soon as I had my first taste, I had to say to myself, the chef was right. It was creamy and tasty. A win. 🙂
This was one of the few moments of self-indulgence that I allow myself. Although The Canteen’s ambiance is far from being that of a fine dining restaurant, it was a refreshing change from the “coffee shops” that we eat at every day.
