Finding comfort food at Romulo Cafe

Enjoying lunch with my family and relatives is always the best! We chose to eat at Romulo Cafe located at 148 Jupiter Street (corner Comet, a block from Reposo) Bel-Air Village, Makati City. 

A little introduction taken from

The late Carlos P. Romulo was an important figure in international diplomacy. His career as a public servant included seventeen years as secretary of foreign affairs and ten years as the Philippines’ ambassador to the United States. In World War II he was aide-de-camp to General Douglas MacArthur. As a journalist he won the Pulitzer Prize in 1942. Referred to by his colleagues as “Mr. United Nations,” he was elected president of the United Nations General Assembly in 1949. By the time he died in 1985, “The General,” as he was widely known, had received well over a hundred awards and decorations as well as more than sixty honorary degrees from universities all over the world.

The people behind this restaurant were the grandchildren. Written on their website : Their goal is simple—to honor our grandparents, and to serve delicious food people really eat: the food we call comfort food.

Comfort food indeed!!! Check out what we ordered! Spell S-A-T-I-S-F-I-E-D! ❤
