Stacy's keep me coming back for more

Hi!!! I tried a new cafe a few months ago but I haven't posted it immediately so now is the time to blog it but before I tell you my dining experience, i will share to you first my get-up. 

When you are greeted by staff with Cath Kidston's apron and given a cup of popcorn and pretzels in a table with a fresh sunflower centerpiece, sipped from a striped paper straw, and eaten heart-shaped rice, you know you are in STACY' s!!! 

I have been seeing this resto on my timeline a lot of times and people are raving about how “delicioso” their food is.  I was even invited by my best friend if we can check out their branch in Capitol Hills Drive but on the day we are supposed to dine in there, it is closed for a special event.... too bad. the anticipation builds as time passes by and now, I am more than excited to finally try it and make a verdict if it’s worth the rave or just overrated.

Let’s see if this new resto will topped the list and snatch the spotlight of my all-time favorite restos.

I have my own criteria in rating restaurants:

1)      Ambiance

2)      Service

3)      Price and affordability

4)      Food

Well, i salute the team responsible for the interiors of the resto for i love the design including the little details that complete the over-all ambiance of the place. 

I love the pink refrigerator, the aprons hanged as decoration, the cute-sy pieces of art on the wall, the pink vintage telephone, the mix of mint and baby pink.... Oh i just love it here. It is a design that can capture the interest of kids and adults alike. Not to mention the fresh flowers in a diy-vase embellished with a checkered ribbon placed in a pastel-colored plate.

As for the service, let us start when we enter the place. 

They gave us something to munch on while we are waiting for our orders to be served. That, in itself, is great service already. Anything, even how small, that is given for free is really touching, right? Plus the waitress who handled our orders and extra needs is super accommodating. You can also see how energetic she is when we asked her about their bestsellers. But the food took a while to be served and that's a major turn-off, service-wise. Hence, if you are in a hurry, you might wanna rethink on dining here coz we waited an estimated time of 20-30 minutes. 

We waited a long time but the food proved they are worth waiting for. We ordered their bestsellers: 

Martha's Pot Roast (285php)-- soft meat roasted into perfection with heavenly gravy.

Texas BBQ ribs (255php)-- oh so tender meat glazed with country style sauce

 Homemade Chicken Parmesan (215php) -- tomatoes and parmesan cheese, an irresistable match.

The plating is rather simple but the taste makes up for it. They all make my taste buds sing in delight. My bloated tummy  is a proof to that. Although the servings looked small but it is just right to satisfy one person. Not too big and not too small but anyhow, it is something to rave about and earned the right for a next time.

Taking all things in consideration, i can say the price is fair in comparison with "Banapple" and "Chocolate Kiss" in exception of the cakes. 

The banofee pie costs php125 which we think is unreasonable. Other than that, all is fair in   Love and food. Lol!

All-in-all, i rate it as 4.5/5. 

Will i come back? Most definitely!!! When? Tonight's just fine and tomorrow... Ahahahaha... That's a sign of how great this resto is so if you haven't checked it out yet. Do so! You will not be disappointed.
