I found a deal online for a cafe near our office last Monday and thought, “Dude, I’ve always wanted to try that place!”
As I was paying for the deal, I found out that I had credits for referring a friend to that deal website. So lo and behold, instead of paying for a $10 lunch that’s worth $25, I paid nada.
I told my co-worker, “You and I are going to have lunch tomorrow.”
And so we went.
We went to 5 Point Cafe. It was sunny and beautiful outside last Tuesday and it was worth the walk of a couple of blocks to get to the cafe.
I was brought back to my childhood when I ordered the hamburger steak. I used to order it all the time at this place called “Pancake House” in Manila. Yeah, that Pancake House serves the best hamburger steaks. So when I saw the hamburger steak on the menu, I had to order it for nostalgia’s sake.
It’s the kind of place that I would go back to on a Saturday or Sunday brunch with the husband or friends. The place, with servers covered in tattoos, gave me a really cozy feeling. I felt like I was at a friend’s house with their grandmother cooking in the back and the cousin was serving our food.
Oh I mentioned “sort of” a free lunch since the bill went up to $28 including tax plus tip. So out of my pocket I only paid $6 for a really good lunch with coffee. It was worth it. I mean $6 is worth a teriyaki chicken with rice. haha!
