Two favorite restaurants are under renovation as we speak. First, don't ring the doorbell at Cafe Molinari because it's homey atmosphere and affordably delicious food are not available and won't be for at least a month.
Also under renovation is a part of the Padre Faura wing at Robinsons Place Malate, affecting Mr. Choi, home of the Chinese cooking without the MSG. It's largely due to Robinsons expansion which I hope will happen in record time. I am due to buy fish chips from Mr. Choi in a month's time to send to my mother abroad!
