A Different Kind of Food & Drink Soiree at CAFE FRANCE, CIBO & SINFULLY BY MAKATI SHANGRI-LA

Years ago, while I was writing a magazine article on Food Cravings, I came across multiple studies showing the strong connection between food AND love, rituals and holidays.

Now that Christmas is really just around the corner, I won't be surprised if you're constantly looking for great dishes to share with family and friends.

If you're in the mood to eat out, then here's Timeless Confection's FIRST of a series of Food and Drink Soirees perfect for this most blessed of season.

Let's begin.

CAFE FRANCE

The bridgeway between SM Makati and Glorietta is no stranger to shopper-hoppers eager to get the best deals for their bonuses. It also happens to be Cafe France's shrine for the past few years as it continues to offer delectable dishes both for dine in and on-the-go.

Diners will find the cafe an unlikely refuge in between shopping and meetups with its simple yet tasty dishes paired with some amazing frappes! Some of our faves include the Seafood Marinara cooked al dente and draped in an appetizing sauce, the deeply satisfying Seafood Soup Linguine and the Cafe's trademark seasonal frappes.

CIBO DIECI

Cibo has been on just about anyone's list of fave restos for years and thankfully, its commitment to good food and high-quality ingredients still prevails. Third time's a charm as what they usually say, but in Cibo's case, it had me at hello. You can forget my cheesy lines; but, not my raves mainly on its Rigatoni Alla Bolognese Con Panna cooked al dente and enveloped in an amazingly delectable sauce made of beef, cream and parmesan. 

Their thin-sliced Prosciutto di Parma is perfectly baked with its five main ingredients: tomatoes, mozzarella, ham, arugula and parmesan- working significantly well with one another. When paired with Cibo's refreshingly cool Pomelo fruit shake, the fine details of both dishes are revealed all the more.

SINFULLY BY MAKATI SHANGRI-LA

Just a few shops from CIBO Dieci, is Sinfully by Makati Shangri-la, well-loved for its array of exquisite gingerbreads and sweet stuffs. My personal faves include their mouthwatering pralines and macarons great to curb your cravings and also perfect as Christmas gifts to colleagues and friends.

Sinfully's rich 'n' creamy cheesecake is also a must-try along with its Opal Coffee Cake that sparkles with a unique citrusy coffee taste. However if you're not particularly fond of sweets, you may find Sinfully's bread selections equally inventive and interesting.
