Vieux Chalet is a Swiss Restaurant neatly tucked in the mountains of Rizal. I studied near the area for 13 years and it's only now that we found out about the restaurant. Shocking, I know! But that's what adds to the charm of this discrete restaurant.
Our post-Vday and post-parents' anniv celebratory lunch started with these..
L-R: Lemongrass iced tea (my chosen drink), Mango Shrimp Salad, Pumpkin Soup
Then came our main course.. The really tasty sausage platter, the oh-so-heavenly Five Cheese Pizza, and the Cannelloni.
I don't know why but whenever we dine out, we ALWAYS ALWAYS have leftovers to take home. But this time around, we were so hungry (probably because we arrived past lunch time) that all our appetizers were finished in seconds. The same thing happened with the sausages and pizza. Haha.
As we were finishing our food, we were lucky enough to catch the owner get back to her laptop at the next table. She was quietly sipping her tea and researching on raw foods. The waitress introduced her to us and chatted with us for a few minutes. She then told us that their restaurant used to be the favorite hideaway of Filipino celebrities, politicians and socialites. Well, who wouldn't favor their place? The weather's cool, the food's great and the place is secluded.
Anyway, to cap our food fest, we ordered the following desserts..
