A "Faburrito" Night

Love the cozy place and the fresh rules.
I love Burritos and Tacos and Nachos.  So you can imagine my delight when I discovered a place called "Faburrito" near our office.

First, the name is very catchy.  It's easy to remember and I find it very clever.  You can either interpret it as Fabulous Burrito or anyone loving Burritos (Paborito).  I just gotta find it out myself if the name fits.

The place has an "earthy" feeling to it which I love.  It must be because of the color palette they used on the walls that complimented with the wooden tables and chairs.   It just feels cozy inside.

The staff was very friendly.  They have a ready but genuine smiles on their faces.  And since it was my first time eating there, I got a little overwhelmed by the number of salsas and dressings.  That's when the knowledgeable staff came in and made suggestions.  Now that's what you call an expert in the product that they are selling.

I ended up ordering Regular Chicken Taco with Mango Vinaigrette and Garlic Aioli dressing.   I didn't know what to expect but hearing the fruit mango, then that must be good.  For an  additional 70php, the tacos that I ordered were upgraded into a meal.  I was given Veggie chips and salsa and a Mint Green Tea.  I love mint but I am not really a Tea-drinker but hey I am willing to try.

Faburrito only serves healthy great tasting food.  They use all natural ingredients - no suger, MSG or preservative.  And don't expect sodas to be served with your food.  It was interesting because the tacos that I ate was extremely delicious.  I love the combination of the mango vinaigrette and garlic aioli dressing on my chicken. It was a bit messy to eat but it was all worth it. (Kudos to the Staff who suggested it! Sorry I was too excited to even get your name.)  

Faburrito, my new paborito - I will be back and next time, I will get myself a Burrito.

Oh! And the tea?  My husband drank it. I had water. :)
