Cafe Ysabel

11 days to go till Christmas! 🙂 My friends and I had our Christmas get-together at Cafe Ysabel. We called for reservations last 2 weeks ago, but it was already FULL. Luckily we were able to reserve this time. Happiness! 🙂

Cafe Ysabel’s architectural design – exterior

For over 25 years, Cafe Ysabel is still one popular restaurant in Metro Manila located in 455 P. Guevarra Street, San Juan .  It was opened by Chef Gene Gonzales when he was still 23 years old. And was visited by a lot of affluent and famous people like Bobby Chinn of World Cafe Asia and Tony Bourdain for his food and travel show, No Reservations.
