Recommendation by Jayvee Ardona
After work and heavy traffic, I just found another cozy place to enjoy the night. Since no work the next day, just tried Pura Vida in Poblacion, Makati City. FYI, “Pura Vida” (pronounces poo-rah vee-dah). And defined as “simple life” or “pure life”, the first time I entered here, it looks scary but it’s amazing when you’re inside, the place has beautiful interior designs with color-schemes of yellow, green and red. I love the set-up, especially the rope with lights and the swings in front of their bar. It’s really eye-catching. It is one of the ingenious places I’ve ever tried. Their staffs were very friendly and welcoming. When it comes to their dishes, it was simple but absolutely scrumptious, tasty and appetizing. I got to try their Casados; it’s a Costa Rican-style lunch for only ₱350. It is composed of Rice, beans, plantains, picadillo, salad, white cheese and Carne en Salsa (beef stew). The serving size is quite small, though its taste is a winner! It was all good. To end my stay here, I tried their Mojito. It’s refreshing! But my top favorite was their Purple Wave, it tastes great, the alcohol content is not that strong. I enjoyed it! Will definitely go back here with my friends soon!
