Let me just say this right off the bat: Sunnies Cafe is not for pooritos like me. (LOL!) I’m not really privy as to how the place is positioned in the market but it seems it is not for big eaters with a tight budget. The Wifey and I visited the recently opened Sunnies Cafe branch at the UP Town Center to try out their offerings. She ordered the Sunnies Fried Chicken. I asked for the Sunnies Risotto.
Expecting a hearty meal — the plate was priced at almost ₱400.00 (around US$8.00) and classified under the “Big Plates” section — I was disappointed with what I got. I expected a bit more serving size-wise. And where’s the bacon? That’s the bacon? (See picture above.) And to make matters worse, the waiter even tried to explain to me the Gran Padano Cheese and Sous Vide Egg even though I didn’t ask (because I know the item I ordered, thank you.)
I’m not rude. I didn’t brush off the guy, who was just doing his job. I let him finish his spiel and then thanked him for his expertise.) To be fair, the Risotto was not bad at all. (Size is just too small.) As for the Fried Chicken, which I have no photo of, pretty salty for my palate. It was boneless, and that’s a plus in my book though. However, the mashed potato was wanting and the gravy was placed in the smallest possible container you could think of.
Will I return to Sunnies Cafe? They have items in their menu that I’d really love to try. But maybe not when I want to get really filled up. Poorito, remember?
