A friend of mine recommended Cafe 1925 a few years back. Even if we go home to Bacolod every year, we're always busy trying out new restaurants there that I always forget about this place. Last month, it was a chance I couldn't pass up. We visited Silay and had lunch at Cafe 1925. It was the perfect time, the little girl was asleep, thus the husband and I had a peaceful lunch! :D
As you can see from the menu below, their prices are very affordable! And the food is not bad at all. Too bad we didn't get to try the Churros or the Ricotta doughnuts. I wonder how that would taste. :)
For a change, I had a hot tea for my drink. Even if I was really tempted to get the Frozen Iced Tea. :|

For me, the bruschetta was the highlight of our visit. Even if I'm not a really big fan of fresh tomatoes, this one made me eat them non stop and craved for some more. It was THAT good! The perfect combination of tomatoes, garlic with olive oil and balsamic vinegar on a warm french bread. Yum!

The husband had the daily special, Dory with Misono rice. I wasn't able to try it myself but according to him it was just okay. Not a big wow here and there, but it was good enough for its price, Php 190.

I loved how the rosti was cooked. Just as I would imagine it, crispy potato shreds. Albeit oily (of course it is oily :P), I liked how it was cooked to a perfect crisp. I wanted to finish all the sour cream and devour everything but I thought to myself, this is just too sinful :P So I had more hot sauce (Tabasco) rather than the artery clogging sauce. Blah!

To finish our meal, we had the Calamansi cupcake and the chocolate with ganache. I wasn't blown away with the chocolate cupcake, maybe because it was just too plain for me. And the frosting was fondant which is something I'm not fond of. The Calamansi cupcake was a nice surprise with the right balance of sweet and tanginess. Just a good way to end a delightful meal.
