    great reviews! tried viesux chalet because of your review. made one boring evening great and personally , i discovered the fun in checking out new places! tuloy, di na ko satisfied with common (commercial) restos. Have you tried Cafe Juanita? in pasig. like viuex chalet, it has a nostalgic feel there….food is great too…how about chateau verde in UP? garden feel naman dun….sarap din ng food.
