Buku-Buku Kafe


Buku-Buku Kafe opens a second branch in SM Southmall

Wherever there's food, you can count me in! I don't mind going the distance if it means that my tummy will be satisfied. My blogger friends and I travelled down South to try Buku-Buku Kafe. They're already on their second branch. The first one is in Cavite and this one is located in SM Southmall. The name itself comes from the owner's father who is Malaysian. Buku-Buku means many books in Bahasa which is why you'll see the whole restaurant is decorated with books.

My Thoughts
When we entered the restaurant, almost all the tables were filled. It must be a sign that people like the food. Filipinos like to eat out with their families which is why normally when they order, it's always to share or what we call as "family-style". Buku-Buku Kafe has big servings and good value food money. Each dish that came out of the kitchen was unique. My suggestions: Sisig Nachos, Mongolian Beef Salpicao, and order from their pastries. It's home-baked and delicious! I would definitely come back. Hopefully they put up a branch that's nearer me.
