can you guess where we are?

we went to this mall to pick up a macbook for a friend and decided to have lunch there. as we were looking for a place to eat, we happened to glance down from the second floor and were surprised to see this. can you believe we were in robinsons place manila?? the place is called chaikofi expresso, and it's a little piece of class in the middle of crass. you order your meal and drinks at the counter and take your seat in one of the funky booths. they even have a little private "room" for bigger groups. we heard it was owned by a young russian guy. chaikofi has another branch in mall of asia, but we have no idea what it looks like. or where it is. and with the size of that mall, good luck finding it. anyway, they serve rice dishes with iced tea for P125. but they also serve coffee, tea, imported beer, and wine. it was strange sitting and eating there. parang hindi bagay ang ambience. mahal kasi ang ambience, 'di ba?

Loved the "a little piece of class in the middle of crass." Hilarious!

But I'm still scared to go to Robinsons Place Manila though.

Is there a still a hotel in construction to replace Midtown?
