Dragon Foodie Review: Blackbird at Nielson Tower

Blackbird front

Hello Sweeties,

Dragon Foodie Review: LE PETIT SOUFFLÉ, Century City Mall Makati

le petit souffle 8Hello Sweeties!

I was with bloggers friends attending an event at Le Petit Souffle. I rarely go to Makati because I feel it is too out of the way for me.  Located on the third floor of Century City Mall near Fully Booked. I was glad I got to try some of the amazing dishes of this very unique restaurant.

LE PETIT SOUFFLÉ  is French-Japanese Cafe and concept store.  Brain child of Pastry Chef Miko Paras, with Kristine Lotilla and Chef Noel Mauricio, in partnership with Charles Paw of Hole in the Wall.

The Interiors are so beautiful, The ambiance reminds me a great deal of the Japanese coffee shops in the Japanese dramas I watch with my daughter. The place is very comfortable and relaxing, unlike the fast food joints where we are always in a rush to finish, Here we can get to take our time and enjoy the atmosphere and the food.
