Polomolok: AMCOOP Lunch with Grandma
AMCOOP is the latest addition to the growing list of restaurants and cafes in South Cotabato. Lately, my FB feed gets flooded with status of eating and staying at AMCOOP Suites. It became our first choice for our first ever, cousins’ lunch date with Lola Auring.
I pray that it will be the start of more lunch dates with Lola Auring, now that we got Deo to drive us around, it’ll surely be easier. AMCOOP Suites Bed – Breakfast Café is located along Cannery Road, Polomolok. We were the first group to have lunch, so we settled in the café dining area near the counter. For lunch; Deo had Pork Sisig at Php160.00 & Cookies & Cream Shake, James & Ryner had Battered Chicken at Php190.00 while James had Cookies & Cream Shake like Kuya Deo, Ryner opted for Charlie Java. Miya had Lechon Kawali for Php 160 & Peanut Coffee, I had Salt & Pepper Beef Ribs for Php175.00 & Amaretto Shake. Lola Auring went for Sinigang na Lapu-Lapu for Php240.00. A cup of rice is only Php20.00 which is very reasonable with the ambience that the café exudes.
Just before we left, Lola Auring wants something sweet and so we tried the Yema Cake for Php70.00. While sharing over the Yema Cake, we had fun joking with Lola, telling her that they do not allow take-out and that she has finish her Sinigang na Lapu-Lapu. So she asked Ryner to finish it for her. AMCOOP had take-out but charges Php 10.00 for the microwavable container, which I gladly pay because I also want to advocate the elimination of the use of plastic cellophanes.
After our hearty & fun lunch, we went for some grocery shopping at Gaisano Mall Polomolok.
