Buongiorno Cafe

Just right after I typed the title of this post, I immediately search for the meaning of the word "buongiorno," thank goodness my ever reliable google has enlightened me as I do not want to end the blog and still don't know the meaning of the word. On how to pronouce it? We'll get there someday, for now what's important is that I now know the meaning. Buon giorno means hello or good day in Italian.

I have no idea why they named the restaurant this as most of their menu are Filipino dishes. That's kindda disappointing. Why not name it Kamusta? Magandang araw? Hmm, I think I have a pretty good idea now. Haha! Just kidding. Anyway, I was really impressed the first time tasted their foods, really something to be proud of, if the owners were really Filipinos. I've been to their old location twice already and then suddenly, they just disappear and no where to be found. Far-ouT and yours truly even drive around Karama area just to look for their new location but failed. By the way, thanks for posting at least a location map of your new place. 

Anyway, I totally forget about them and then suddenly they just appear in front of me! Creepy. Kabute ba tawag dun? I think we should just call it fate. We were about to go to Burjuman Centre to dine at that time when all of a sudden I saw their signage. I overreacted and was like Far! Far! yung Buongiorno! Ekkk, OA alert. And Burjuman was forgotten. I was starving already so we headed straight to the alloted parking space and eat to my heart's content.

Before, I move on to this reunion with their food, I noticed that their current location was way better and bigger.

With Elegantly looking tables and chairs

Very nice set-up

And cozy lightings.

Just a No! No! for fake flowers please!

A lot has change to this place really. They improve on their overall look. But some things never change, the people were the same friendly staff . They have good customer service, without this, which some restaurant failed in this area, will bound to fail. But Buongiorno, kept their good people. I was even suspecting that the two most accommodating people there were the owners. No wonder they succeeded tremendously. Oh, and that Karaoke and satellite channels are still there! For your pleasure and afterwork relaxation

At the back of my mind, I was also hoping that they'd maintained the quality and taste of their food. And I was not disappointed. I totally enjoyed everything.

Moving forward, we have ordered the ones that I super love from their menu:


Rellenong Bangus

I was so full, I totally enjoyed my food. I also got to taste Far-ouT's tapsilog, yummy

Should you want to visit their place, they are opposite Burjuman Centre, Shop #2, Al Zarooni Bldg., (between Avenue and Pizza Hut), Here is their map for easy finding

They are also cater for parties and deliver. Tel. no. 04-357 0300.

Truly another gastronomical binge. Till we meet again. Buon giorno!
