YumYum: Cafe Lidia at Marikina City

Getting to Cafe Lidia if you're not from Marikina may seem a bit tricky, but once you do find your way... well, let's just say that one time visit will turn into twice and then so on...

Hailing from the Shoe City of Marikina, Cafe Lidia is a dream come true. The menu is like a book of fairytales that ends with happily ever after. All of our favorites are in it. Buffalo Wings, Carbonara, steaks and the to die for Beef Salpicao. The coffee is great tasting and the cakes are sweet temptations.

No wonder me and my cousins don't go out of our dear beloved city whenever we want to have a fabulous dinner. There is Cafe Lidia that sates our craving for good food, coffee and desserts. Best of it all, we don't have to waste a lot on gas because we live quite near Cafe Lidia.

Buffalo Wings

This seems to be a mainstay whenever we visit.
It's just too good!

Beef Salpicao

Since R and I had dinner earlier that night, we decided to share the generous serving of Beef Salpicao. This is my favorite in Cafe Lidia.

Burger Steak

Cousin E, tried something new and she wasn't disappointed. Juicy Burger is always a comforting dinner for anyone, if you ask me.

I'm not sure what coffee my cousin, A, ordered but I'll hazzard a guess it's Cappuccino. :)

Blueberry Cheesecake

Always a good companion to a cup of coffee.

The BF and I, happy with our orders and seeing our dearest friends.

much love,

  2. I live in Marikina and I've never been to Cafe Lidia though I have heard so many good things about them. After seeing these pics, I will definitely drag myself since it's just 15 minutes away from here. Thanks for the post! :)

  3. I know what I am about to say is out of context but please do check out on my latest blog post. It is just a little way of helping out Kristie Tunick. I posted a link on what her condition is all about, please I am asking for your help too to make a blog post about her and the link. This will make a difference and this will help out a lot. Please help get the message out to the world.

    Going back there again for dinner tonight! Taking another couple who haven't tried it yet. I second the other posters recommendation of Krung Thai next to the Marikina Public Market (S/W corner).  I also highly recomend Isabelo Garden Restaurant close to the Otto Shoe Bldg and Shoe Museum at 11 I(sabelo) Mendoza St.  Check out website. By reservation only. Don't be afraid of the prices - for example the pork crackling @ 1,250php is enough to feed 4-5 people.


I would love to hear from you!
