Food for the soul: Cafe at the Pinto Art Museum Antipolo

wpid-20131013_133437.jpgwpid-20131013_122147.jpgThe Sunday afternoon drive up to Antipolo City turned out to be a pleasant surprise! We found the Pinto Art Museum (PAM) and Cafe located in a sprawling property called Silangan Gardens. It was a wonderful escape to be surrounded by nature, culture and good food.

A section called the “bamboo forest” was my most amazing zen experience. The museum and gardens offer tranquility that is indeed food for the soul. wpid-20131013_125219.jpg

Love Chef Alexander Tanco’s truffle oil tagiatelle (P 355); and for P595 the set menu comes with soup, entree and dessert. Must try the lamb shanks!
