It was pleasant overcast afternoon in Makati. I couldn't resist eating al Fresco at Glorietta 5. My friends and I went for a short shopping expedition during our lunch break. Since I've already bought the item that I was looking for just within ten minutes of getting off the cab, I had plenty of time to wander around the mall by myself while the rest wandered off by themselves to shop.
I wasn't particularly hungry but the lovely weather urged me to sit down at the verandah and enjoy the breezes. I decided to have a light lunch at The Soup Kitchen. I ordered their combo meal of half soup and half sandwich, which was more than enough to fill me up.
I had the she crab soup, it's creamy and tomato-ey kind of soup with imitation crabs and chopped onions. Not very impressive. Maybe I'll try the clam chowder next time.
I also had half a ham sandwich, which was nice. It's got moyannaise on it, I can't believe how much I miss having mayonnaise in my sandwich!
The soup kitchen has a wide variety of dishes on their menu. Their soup specials change daily.
The Soup Kitchen also offers a wide variety of breads for your sandwiches, you have a choice of brown, raisin, herb, cinnamon pecan, strawberry, honey oak (now that seems interesting for a crab and mango sandwich, oh sorry, I'm daydreaming again). I may have to go back to The soup Kitchen to try their specialty sandwiches next time.
The weather was so perfect, I'm glad that I ventured out of the office for a short while to enjoy it.
