I was supposed to fly to Washington DC this weekend for a business meeting. However, the DC area ( including Maryland and Virginia ) were buried in snow. So the meeting got cancelled.
It was just fitting that since I didn't get to go to the US, that we try out a popular American diner in the Makati area. I'm talking about the Filling Station located at Burgos st. The whole place looks and feels like a real American diner. It has a lot of memorabilia and I was expecting the Fonz to appear. I made sure I got pictures taken with two of my alter egos - Superman and Wonder-woman.
We took the opportunity to order milkshake and root-beer float. There aren't a lot of restaurants in the Philippines who serve them. We were not disappointed. They were good. Of course - all the other dishes we ordered - Pizza, Shrimp popcorn and Buffalo Wings tasted like what they should taste like - Diner food. For my friends and myself - that means having that warm Fuzzy feeling after you take the first bite.
We are definitely coming back for the other dishes. I think they have hundreds of options. I will definitely try their breakfast fare next time because they advertised that they bake fresh breads daily. Plus - I have not taken a picture with the Hulk and Flash.
