J introduced me to Uno (located at Scout Fuentebella corner Tomas Morato, Quezon City -- behind Little Asia) nine years ago. He revealed that it was their (his ex and his) "place" for the longest time. He had let go of the ex but not of Uno (hehe). I understood completely -- it was so easy to fall for the food, the place, even the service. You can tell the people working here love what they do! Photo credit (spoon & fork): Mine.
What we love:
- the iced tea (their own brew)
- their freshly-baked bread
- their Daily Specials
- their ever-changing menu
- their desserts are to die for (Must Try: cheesecake, fallen chocolate cake)
- the service (they're very warm, attentive and efficient! And because we're regulars, even if we have not ordered, they serve us our iced tea na -- they remember!)
Another blogger described Uno perfectly and I quote "It has everything I like in a restaurant: simple décor, clean crisp white table cloth, sturdy wooden chairs, big windows that let the sunlight in, a menu that changes as often as possible, uncomplicated food prepared meticulously and delicately, fresh ingredients made from scratch, the smell of home-made bread, servings that are just right and really great desserts to end a meal."
