It's no secret at all that Cafe Juanita at the Fort shares a spot in the list of great Filipino restaurants.
Too tired from a night long party on Christmas Eve, we went to the Burgos Circle strip to look for a place to dine on Christmas Day and was glad to find out that Cafe Juanita was open for dinner. The place is as always full but we were lucky to get seated. Christmas in the Philippines is synonymous to great food, and who can duplicate the Cafe Juanita bestseller Kare Kare among others. They turn simple native Filipino dishes to gourmet. Aside from the Kare Kare that tops our list, we've always enjoyed their Lapu Lapu with their special sauce and the Sinanglay.
Service is quick. The staff deserve a tap in the back for rendering service to loyal customers like us even on Christmas Day.
Good job Cafe Juanita, til the next visit.
