It is always nice to go to dining places that are both gastronomically AND visually satisfying.

Blacksoup cafe and Artspace                                                                                                                                                                   (Unit G, Maginhawa Bldg., 154 Maginhawa St. Sikatuna Village)

I’ve been here twice already but their food failed to impress me. Just as how my officemate described their veggie pasta: the food is forgettable.  I ordered thier Cream Dory w Kangkong and it was very salty. The consolations, I guess, are the well-lighted interior and the photo wall.

I dined here with my classmates and teachers in Yoga class last night. Apparently, one of my classmates owns this place.  And  I must say, this is one of the most memorable dining experiences I ever had; basically because of the good food, interesting interiors and the good company. Since our teachers are vegitarians, we had veggies and seafood for diner. It was very, very nice. I recommend this place for vegetarians who often times have very limited dining options. We had Upo and Miswa soup, Veggie salad (tomatoes, lettuce, kesong puti, dalandan slices and radish), Grilled Tanigue, Spicy Shrimp and Brown Rice. Their Coconut icecream and Pandan juice was super nice. And they also served hot Tarragon Tea. Trimona opened 3 years ago; same date when the TriNoMa mall opened (thus the name Trimona!) Aside for being a restaurant, they also sell native food products, accessories, books and art pieces made by different artists and NGOs and People Organizations. You won’t get bored while waiting for your food because of the interesting art pieces that you may purchase. I super liked their dreamcatcher chimes! They also have rooms for rent and I remembered that one of our Spanish interns actually stayed here during his last months here in Manila. This is one place definately worth visiting again.
