Makati has a lot of good food places! Ever since, I have been complaining not being able to try out different restaurants which can be found around the Makati area because of its proximity to my residence. But now, I have been interning at a government office located in Makati; and since I started, I have been plotting restaurants which I'll be trying (hopefully sooner than later).
For now, I have been stuck to bringing packed food for lunch. If I do not have any baon, as Filipinos call it, I'm eating in the canteen at our office.
Today was different. My friend Rog brought me to the Ateneo Professional (Rockwell) Schools' Cafeteria or Canteen, as others would like to call it. We ate there. The Cafeteria is being run by Makati Cuisine, which does catering as well.
Surprisingly, the food there is a lot better than the food in our office's canteen (thank goodness!). For around Php 45-60 (US$1.00-1.30) you'll already have a decent meal.
They served Chicken Cacciatore (Php 47), Chinese Beef (Php 55) and Grilled Porkchops (Php 47) earlier. Rog and I had the Chinese Beef and Grilled Porkchop. It's both delicious and flavorful. The beef was soft, the pork chops good for the price. I was fulfilled, and my belly satisfied.
The Ateneo Rockwell Cafeteria is located at 1st Floor, Ateneo Professional Schools Bldg., 130 H.V. Dela Costa St., Salcedo Village, Makati City, Philippines.
