Before visiting my dad in the hospital last night, we ate at CO/OP Goods & Eats along A. Mabini St. in San Juan. This is already my second visit, the first was during the launching of GlamGlow, H2O+ and Fresh Fragrance Bar.
I didn't bring my Canon camera last night, I just used my ever-reliable Samsung MEGA to take these shots. I know the photos are a bit grainy but I won't be coming back anytime soon so I figured these will do.
This cozy cafe reminded me of another quaint concept store/cafe in Shangri-La East Wing called Shelter Home & Design where Gigi Coffee and Cupcakes occupy a smaller area inside the store.
I like the wide open space and industrial design of the restaurant. The place sells imported stuff like bags, wall clocks, books and even throw pillows!
|Roasted Tomato Soup PhP 180/bowl|
The Roasted Tomato Soup has just the right consistency, not too watery. This is supposed to be my daughter's soup but she said, "asim" right after one sip ; p She says that to every food that she likes/dislikes lol
I like it so I ended up finishing the entire bowl which is good enough for 2 people. If you are alone, you might want to order just a cup instead of a bowl. I think the difference is PhP 70.
|Harvest Salad PhP 280|
My daughter loves grapes and so we ordered one Harvest Salad because it has slices of grapes and pears in it. There's also bleu cheese (my favorite!) and nuts on top of the veggies.
I noticed that the slices of pear had already turned brownish in color and some of the greens were already wilted. I love the balsamic dressing though.
|Smoked Salmon with Anchovies Pasta PhP 370|
Smoked Salmon with Anchovies Pasta was hmmm... how do I describe it... nakakasawa ; ( Maybe it was too creamy? Smoked Salmon was good, I hope the owners can add a little more so that the quantity is proportioned to the amount of pasta.
|Beef Brisket Sandwich PhP 395|
Beef Brisket is sandwiched in between two thick bread French Toast style. For its price, I want to see more beef than bread ; p Yes, it was filling, I only ate half and I felt I could not take it anymore. It was too greasy for me.
By the way, this is a pay-as-you-order restaurant but service charge was still added to our bill. Our total bill amounted to PhP 1274.46.
I hope the owners can tweak the menu a little by adding rice dishes and adjust the prices to make it more friendly in the pocket so more people can enjoy their restaurant.
CO/OP is located at 189 A. Mabini St., Addition Hills, San Juan. From EDSA, go to ORTIGAS then turn LEFT to WILSON ST. When you hit the intersection, turn LEFT at P. GUEVARRA. Take second LEFT to ORTEGA then take third LEFT to A.MABINI.
