Usually when I view a restaurant worthy of a second visit it takes me months to actually get my ass back there. This time it’s different; 6 days and I was back. Friuli Trattoria, a small Italian resto in Quezon City has affected me so much, it keeps me begging for more. Just how crazy I am about this place? Well, put it this way… I am willing to travel all the way to Quezon City via the train from hell, the MRT (ride an MRT and you’ll know what I mean) just to get there.
It all started with pavlova, a meringue dessert that Mrs. Carmen Aguila used to make. It was so good that orders came pouring in. The Aguila family later decided to just open a restaurant where they could formally take customers in and that’s how Gayuma ni Maria, considered as one of the top date places in the metro, was born. I had a chance to check out the place myself with two of my girl friends, Ana and Christine last July. It is situated in Sikatuna Village, Quezon City.
