It was a beautiful Saturday in February and we had another visit from one of my favorite families in the world! 🙂

Mr. and Mrs. Co with the adorable Lil G 🙂

Isabel, my partner in crime, suggested this place called Romulo along 148 Jupiter Street, Makati.  I’ve never eaten there but I noticed their chic black and white interiors from the outside whenever I’d drive by.  She said it’s perfect for big groups and families.  And who doesn’t love Filipino food???
