This isn't a good Yum Moments post. Seriously, it isn't. My friend and I decided to try SKOW in Marikina (as usual, what's new?) but it was closed on the day we went there. So we walked a little and saw a cozy looking place called Corazon's Cafe.
As my friend and I were checking what's on the menu, the waiter was telling us which the bestsellers are which is quite okay. We were advised that those with smileys are the ones that people like the most. As we were discussing which dishes to order, the waiter kept making suggestions and never stopped talking since then. The moment he flipped the pages for us, that's when we got really turned off. We just settled for the bestselling spaghetti and nachos. I ordered chocolate shake since it was freaking hot outside and I wanted something really cold. Too bad there are no other shakes available at that time. I figured I can just add a little water if it turns out too sweet for me. But oh, I didn't know that the chocolate shake and water would be the best out of everything we had at that cafe.
The nachos was served first. We thought it tasted fine but there was too much cabbage (yes, cabbage, and not lettuce) in it. Though the black olives were a breath of fresh air. The serving was quite generous for Php 165 or Php 170 (I forgot the exact price. Selective memory, I guess? :P)
As we were munching away, we thought that it was just plain cheesy until we started to taste too much butter. The cheese sauce was loaded with butter. I don't know why but I called the nachos "nachos salad" because of the cabbages, perhaps. And oh, we started getting dizzy.
I didn't know my friend ordered chicken skin. We thought that these would take away the super butter taste in our mouths but we were in for a surprise. The batter also had butter!!!
And the main course, Spaghetti. By the time this was served to us, we were already full and had too much butter. We were already feeling dizzy, I swear. We didn't pig out on the chicken skin, I think I only had 2 at that time so it definitely wasn't the cause of the dizziness. Moving on, the moment we munched on it, we tasted something again. The dreaded butter! To our dismay, we ordered San Miguel Beer Light to somewhat wash away the buttery taste so we can better taste the spag. The beer did wonders, we were no longer as dizzy as we were with too much butter on our system. However, we still tasted the butter as it was too much.
After 2 hours, here's what's left of the pasta. We swore to never dine in there again. I wish I had Tropical Hut's spaghetti instead of this one. And for Php160? Not worth the tag. If I want to get knocked out and fall asleep because I feel dizzy, then I would go back and have their spaghetti again.
That being said, there is no way I am going back to Corazon's Cafe again. No way, Jose! If I were to change its name, I would call it Dizzy Butter Cafe.
Happy Friday, super awesome peeps! :P
