Having merienda with Elvis Presley and Marilyn Monroe: Mama Chit’s Coffee House

My parents heard about this restaurant in a local TV show and since it was near our area we decided to take a look at their place however it was so jam-packed during that time that we decided to come back some other time and that time is now.

OVERVIEW:
This place is located near the church of Our Lady of the Abandoned and the Shoe Museum in Marikina.

Side walk of the Shoe Museum

Riding the gigantic stiletto... Cool! :)
For visitors with vehicle you can park your vehicle at the church then walk your way on the restaurant. For commuters, you can ride a jeep at the jeepney terminal under the Katipunan flyover. The jeepney will take you to the city center. Just ask the jeepney driver if they will pass by the church of Our Lady of the Abandoned-San Roque.

SERVICE:
I can say that their service improved as compared to the first time we went there. During our first visit they warn each and every customer that the order will take about 45 minutes to 1 and ½  hour to be served but now they were able to serve our orders in approximately 20 to 30 minutes in spite the numerous customers. And their servers were friendly too.

THE PLACE:
Upon reaching the coffee house this is what welcomed us.
Wacky burger shot. So cute! :)
And the house is full of antiques. It was like a museum of memorabilia and Coca-Cola merchandise. It is so nice- picturesque that is.

Queuing... Look at the old soda cans on their ceiling

Marilyn Monroe

Elvis Presley

Old slot machine and lampara

This is so cool... Old iron :)

Old ice shaver. I think we had this when I'm younger

Old converse shoes

Memorabilia of a lady taken in black and white

Old pharmacy signage. Cool! :)

FOODIES:
So we queued for our food and it was served after a while. We ordered for a family burger, creamy pesto and carbonara.

Family Burger (Php 600)


Mama Chit's family Burger. This is so overwhelming and mouthwatering.
It was even bigger than the one that we ate at Cebu Casa Verde. So yummy! :)
The family burger is humongous. It can be eaten by 4-8 persons and be very filled. I think they use wheat bread for their burger that makes it even more tummy filling. 

Mama Chit's Carbonara (Php 150)

Mama Chit's Creamy Pesto (Php 150)
The creamy pesto is really creamy but I like the carbonara better.


 My tummy, as well as my family’s, was so satisfied. ^_______^ Kudos to Mama Chit's.


This is indeed a must visit. By the way, I agree with the local show host when she said that this place served the best burgers because so far their version of family burger is really something.

Bittersweet Symphony Verse 2: Organized Clutter

This is basically the same template as my version 1. I just edited few codes and add more icons and blog pets as well (see bottom of page). But then my scatterbrain still needs her notepad so I'm sticking with this. (:

Feel free to browse thru my musings/rants/escapades as I tour around my country (and hopefully beyond)... Enjoy! :)
