Friends from the South: Neighborhood Game Cafe

Neighborhood Game Cafe
48 Ubay Street, Banawe, Quezon City

After one enjoyable and tiring afternoon of badminton, my friends and I extended the fun and brought it at Neighborhood Cafe.
This cafe is found along the street of Ubay in one of the busiest cities in the Metro. It was no big deal from South peeps like us to conquer this cafe, as they have parking areas, with a staff ready to guard our babies. Street parking is also acceptable, as the place seemed safe and spacious enough that street parking won't be an inconvenience on the road.
It was 5pm and the place wasn't as lively as other boardgame cafes, but I looked at this as an opportunity for us to have first dibs on all the available games. It's also favorable to us since we were able to play without worrying about how we could disturb other players, and vice versa.
They have a shelf full of games, although the choices aren't as unique and broad as what I've seen from other more well known cafes.
The cafe doesn't implement strict rules on orders during our stay. But, an order of a drink or food per person will be highly appreciated by their management.
They have lots of food available, from finger food, pastas, sandwiches, and even rice meals. They have lots of options for drinks, too, which, believe me, are all very very tempting. And oh, I won't forget to mention that they also have cakes perfect to increase your sugar levels and get you hyped up for that next game.
Since I was badly craving for chicken (and missing the karaage pops from school), I decided to go for their Taiwanese chicken pops (P149) which was described as a dish having 18-20pcs bite sized chicken fillet with five spice. Okay, I just realized that the cafe betrayed me huhu I just noticed that they mentioned the number of chicken pops on the menu and the number I was supposed to see on my plate while writing this review. It was definitely less than this! Although it wasn't too few either. The taste of the food wasn't bad. I expect food from boardgame cafes to be comparable to any menu for kids, but thankfully it was better than what I expected. It wasn't bland. The spices were there.

This is a cafe I'm glad to have set foot on despite its distance from my home. No regrets, just lakwatsa.

My score:
Pricing – 3.5/5
Service – 4/5
 Ambiance – 4/5  
Taste – 3.5/5
