Its been a long time since my last visit in Eastwood City, “as in” long time when the high rise buildings are not yet fully operational and whenever I visit the place its like an eat and run kind of thing. I didn’t got a time to appreciate the structures around me, but my experience few months ago when I visited Café Enye for a food feature and review, I can say that Eastwood City transformation’s gave me lots of wow moments, when I was there with my wife Lace, I thought of I was in another country because of these high rise buildings.
Back to Café Enye, I went there without researching or read some food blogs, I thought it was just another café that serves coffee and some rice meals, I brought my mirrorless camera with me to take photos of the food, after arriving there, I experienced a hard time taking pics because my cam is not good to take pics in low lighted environment.
But I didn’t say that it’s a bad lighting in Café Enye, I can say is that the Café displays a very warm feeling because of their low light ambiance, analyzing the features of the light and interiors and quiet phase of Café Enye, made me realize that this café-restaurant is a good spot for dinner dates!
Yes, I can say that Café Enye is good restaurant for romantic dates and also meetings, its so quiet and there's no noisy customers or staff inside. Now I wish that I lived in a condo around Eastwood City, if I lived there, this might be my place to do some blogging work. (They have WIFI and its ultra fast!)
Here’s the entrance to Café Enye, located at Excelsior Eastwood in Eastwood City.
It’s a high rise condo (or maybe it’s a hotel too) with a European style entrance and features.
Look at those buildings…they are so huge
Here’s another view that made me feel that Im in another country haha
Reminds me of Hong Kong.
the al fresco dining of Café Enye
Café Enye’s dining area
Everything here is so Instagramish…or Instagrammable.
Interiors are cute and filled with glamour.
That “N” or enye letter art on the wall is made up of colorful cups
My eye just caught this coffee grinder and roaster machine.
The café staff told me that they use this to burst coffee aroma around the café.
I wanna worship this… lol
Café Enye also have a function room that can fit 20 people in one room.
You can see all the action here at the see through window of the kitchen.
Café Enye also have a bar where you can get your nice coffee fix or cocktails
Café Enye’s bar always have a present barista to make your handcrafted beverage.
That wall art is so cool.
I wonder if its pinoy art made.
Here’s the menu of Café Enye
And here’s our food on the table.
CALAMANSI CUCUMBER BLENDED DRINK
I got an orientation about the Café Enye first before I try their meal, I’ve learned that they serve food that are modernized Spanish dish, its like a traditional dish added with a twist.
PHP 135 FOR 3 PCS
Café Enye’s callos pork buns are the most talked about food item here. Many people compare this to other pork buns in some restos, but Café Enye’s is so good, soft and tasty. Their buns can compete head to head to other pork buns available in Manila.
Inside the buns are the tasty ingredients.
Best served while its hot.
Café Enye’s lechon carbonara is one helluva masterpiece. I didn’t even think that lechon will be much more tasty good as a meat ingredient in my fave carbonara.
you can request on the cooking method for the egg. For my preference, I like it raw on top of my carbonara.
CALLOS ALA CASA
Bits of tripe with tomatoes, potatoes, olvies, chopped chorizo, mojo chicharrones by Cafe Enye, all slow cooked in 6 hours.
Best served while its hot and a good munch with a white plain rice. It’s a heavy load of carbs and protein. If you want to get energized after a long jogging, then I suggest you try eat and enjoy this.
Its like humus, but more tastier and creamy. I super love dipping the crusty bread on to it.
The grilled tenderloin beef is juicy, soft and tasty. Im not familiar with this Chimichurri, but its tastes good.
Im so happy that they have coffee..
Because Café Enye is also a café, bar and restaurant.
EL TINDERO COCKTAIL
This was the moment I first tasted Richie Cruz’s original Bacardi cocktail creations. Did you know that this cocktail won the national competition of Bacardi Legacy Global Mix, Richie and his El Tindero cocktail will represent the Philippines, and as entry for the global competition in San Francisco, CA, USA.
Café Enye is the home of El Tindero, it’s a Bacardi cocktail with coconut juice, lager beer and added with coconut meat and muscovado sugar on the rim of the glass.
Its good and I loved it.
CHOURXROS WITH DULCE DE LECHE CREAM
Café Enye also serve this to us, their home made churros. Its all made from their kitchen, freshly prepared and its good to take a bite while its hot.
After this food tasting and resto visit, I can say that Im now a fan of Café Enye!
It’s a resto that we should keep it alive because of the new Spanish dish with the twist they create and also for offering El Tindero, is a cocktail that is now making waves around the globe carrying our flag.
located in Excelsior Eastwood, Eastwood City
