We didn’t have anything planned for Valentine’s day except this – to have breakfast at Portico in Serendra. Why breakfast? Well here are our reasons:
- We didn’t want to join the bunch of people going out on that big day (traffic will be worst I’m sure)
- We wanted to spend the day with our kids too
- We wanted to try Portico for months now
Actually I read Anton of OurAwesomePlanet.com about his breakfast in Portico’s a couple of months ago. After that, I’ve been craving for it and been bugging Hubby that we try it one of these days. So, when we had an opportunity (and an occasion to celebrate which is the Vday), we jumped at the opportunity. A sleepless night didn’t stop us from going there.
We got to Serendra around 8:30AM. I was surprised to see some people jogging all over the place. I told Hubby that we should also jog there one of these days. I just hope we still have the energy and time to do that after being awaken by our 3 months old baby almost everyday.
Anyway, Portico opens for breakfast at 7AM until 10:30AM.
Hubby and I had a hard time choosing the meal that we are ordering. I think all the breakfast meals looked really good.
I ordered the Filipino Breakfast served with 1 egg, garlic rice and a choice of: mini fresh juice, brewed coffee or hot chocolate.
I got this one…
Baguio Longganisang Durog with sunny side up and hot chocolate
It was really good. But honestly, I find it a bit pricey considering that the serving was not too big. I guess what I was thinking was that I can get this meal in any other restaurant in a cheaper price.
Hubby got this one…
Beef Sirloin Tapa with Brewed Coffee
This meal was more worth it than my longganiza. It was a bit sweet and the beef was really tender. The serving was a bit small though but all in all the food was tasty.
Here are more photos of the place.

I Like this Lamp of the Restaurant
The place was really cozy, I liked it a lot. The service was pretty good too. I would highly recommend this place on special occasions.
