On our way to Cubao X, we passed by Butter Diner.
For a long time(and my friends can attest to this) I’ve wanted to go to a diner – something similar to what you saw on those American movies. I’ve even practiced my line: “the regular please”, and presto! good, homey food (ok so that wasn’t much of a line.. harhar)
What did I like about Butter Diner?
Pancakes of course! and…
Aside from the crazy wigs they had on, tempting me to bring out my specially designed comb for curly hair, I loved their flavored butter. I’m not sure how many there were, but I’m sure there were plenty. I tried the blueberry pancakes, the Roast Beef, and Drei tried the smoked ribs.
Blueberry pancakes - really good, as well as the blueberry flavored butter
Roast Beef - It could use a bit more warming up
Smoked Ribs - this one was disappointing. Flavor was too smoky
Cost: Not too cheap, not too expensive either. Pancakes at aroundP90, while the main course costs around P200-250.
If you’re in the area (I come from the south, so this area is a once a year thing), try out Butter Diner. They’re located at the Shopwise Arcade in Araneta Center. They also have milkshakes, banana splits and other desserts. Not everything is that yummy (smoked ribs heh) but then again, you don’t come to Butter Diner to eat meat – you visit the place to sample the flavored butter.
Now, did I get to practice my line?
Er no not really. On my next visit perhaps, gotta make that next visit pretty unforgettable. Maybe a wig will help…
