Probably one of the most aesthetically pleasing places I've ever been to outside the US, Cafe Juanita is certainly worth the 40 minute cab ride we had to take. With friendly service and a visually pleasing interior decor, this place had us from the start. We ordered the fried Lupa Lupa, stuffed crab, and gulay vegetable dish in coconut milk. The gulay was amazing and blended well with the coconut milk and eggplant siding. The stuffed crab was delicious, having noodles and veggies stuffed in it as well. The fried Lupa Lupa was good, but it was batter fried so it was a little heavy. Overall I would recommend this place 100% if you are in Manila and want to try delicious traditional pinoy cuisine.
