I was very curious about this relatively new diner in the Regis Center in Katipunan called Sweet Ecstasy. It specializes in the all American Food mostly burger, fries, onion rings, chicken and milkshakes. It was very late and I was tired from work and I wanted dine somewhere new.
I found the place very comfortable, simple and check out that sink made out of an old drum! Nice ‘no? It was an unassuming shop, the ambiance is simple and reminds me of a 50s diner, similar to Johnny Rockets, movie posters abound, comfortable booths. This branch is quite small. The place can occupy around 40 people.
I love dining out at interesting places. I was lucky enough to be invited at one close by, the Katipunan area. The place is not really hard to find, but you can`t find it since it is not obviously seen from the street. As you can see from the photo above the place exudes mystery.
Exile means to be away from one’s home, while either being explicitly refused permission to return and/or being threatened with imprisonment or death upon return.
This Exile on Main St is named after the owners favorite album by Rolling Stones. Like their other branch in Malate Exile on Main St Katipunan is tucked away.
Let me talk about the entire look of the place. It reminds me of one of my artist friend`s house. The place is unique unto itself. The tables were formerly window panes or doors. The each chair has a special art work drawn/ painted on it.
They have this Sexy area where glamorous women from the 50s have their photos displayed and colorful high heels grace the ceiling
This is my favorite area. Colorful, fun and vibrant. A lot of myr friends would find this area perfect for a themed get together so we can gossip or rant.
Exile is a place for students, professionals, artist (you can see by the artworks) and whoever wants to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
The place itself is interesting enough to visit because of the ambiance. I will talk about the dishes they served after the break
