That 70’s hit by Maureen McGovern was the first thing that came into my mind when I saw the name of this restaurant. The Morning After is only a tiny part of a gigantic new mall/entertainment center located behind Solenad 2, in Sta. Rosa, Laguna. This new area pretty much sprouted out of nowhere – It resembles UP Town Center (like most of Ayala’s malls) except it’s twice as big. Anyway, as expected, there were so many new restos to pick from, but I ended up choosing The Morning After because if you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you will know that I absolutely love diners/restaurants that serve 24/7 breakfast.
My only picture of the interior. Sorry! It was also quite crowded inside.
Menu: Pancake Corner (sweet trio pancakes, banana peanut butter pancakes) Waffles and More, French Toast, Pasta (truffle shiitake mushroom), Dessert (churros)
Chocolate Chip Latte for my drink.
Breakfast Maki – Hand-rolled maki with tamago, mango, and teriyaki-glazed spam dusted with togarashi and roasted goma. A tad bit spicy, but still good.
Crispy Chicken Fingers and Waffles – The ultimate soul food, consisting of fluffy corn waffles, and crispy fried chicken tenders served with gravy. The waffles had a bit of crisp, since they were toasted. The chicken was well-seasoned too.
This place looks really promising, and I can expect them opening up a couple more branches as the months go by. The food is already great, but I can also see them improving it soon enough.
Food: 5/5 (taste) 4/5 (presentation)
The Morning After is located at Solenad 3, Nuvali, Santa Rosa – Tagaytay Road, Don Jose, Laguna. Tel no: 049 2580819.
