Caffe Piansa... for when you need to Go To Jail without collecting 200... Ikain mo nalang

I love Monopoly, ever since I was a kid, it has always been one of my favorite board games... I love it less now, because Sofia loves it too and sometimes she wants to play and it just takes forever.

At the start of the game, I hate it when you get the Go To Jail card... but when you're short on cash and your opponents already own buildings, Jail is a good reprieve so you can earn from rent without paying any.

Anyway, I digress, but when I was researching where to eat in Marikina, one of the places I found, was the jail themed restaurant. I thought it was similar to Industriya Markina, which was an old shoe factory converted in a shoe themed restaurant, so I was quite surprised to see it located in a residential area. I think the server was more surprised at how gullible I was when I asked if it used to be a jail and she had to explain to me it was only a theme. Hahaha. No worries, I came for the food. 

I visited over the holidays, so I could see what people in big groups were ordering, but I couldn't do the same.

I opted to start with cappuccino which was a steal at Php75 because it came with yummy cookies too.

My one phone call was to fat brother, which he ignored.

Good thing, I totally loved prison food...
I ordered the Gas Chamber Meal which is very reasonable
for Php260 since it has a slice of Chicken Schnitzel with
Cheese and a side of Squid Ink Pasta.

A for Effort. The waiter even in wearing his Judge robes.
Hilarious though how I seemingly captured them in each other's arms.
Totally circumstantial evidence if I may add. No Photoshop skills involved.
Just excellent timing.

That was a thoroughly entertaining meal for Php335.
Or what I'd automatically calculate as SG$10!

The judge and alleged his mistress even willingly played
photographer for me.

I agree.
The the jury is in. The verdict is, this place is definitely
worth another visit. just saying.
