A Valentine's Date at Mati's Meats and Bread in River Park, Filinvest City, Alabang

The South of Metro Manila is very much thriving these days and I am personally glad about it because I live here! There are now lots of new establishments, including must-go-to restaurants, that are just waiting to be discovered. 

Spending Valentine's Day together
One of the newest places to explore is River Park in Filinvest City, Alabang located just behind Festival Supermall. Last Saturday, it being Valentine's Day, hubby and I found time to be away from the kids for a few hours. We decided to spend it together, somewhere near, without getting caught in the expected heavy traffic that comes with such occasions. 

Mushroom Soup
We had dinner at Mati's Meats and Bread in River Park and found their food really good! Aside from ala carte dishes, they had a Valentine's Special Menu. Here's sharing what we tried …

Caesar Salad
The Mushroom Soup and Caesar Salad were perfect starters that whetted our appetites.

Mango Juice
Hubby wanted to try the Oyster Rockefeller and the melted cheese on top drizzled with a few drops of juice from the accompanying lemon wedges made them even more delicious. 

I have to rave about the beef dishes though because the taste and doneness of the meat are perfect! I ordered the Beef Salpicao with Rice while hubby had the USDA Steak with Mashed Potato and Vegetables. Both were very flavorful and I can't wait to visit this place again so I could finish a whole plate of the steak dish by myself! The prices (P385.00 each) are very affordable given the quality of the beef!  

Beef Salpicao
If you find yourself in our part of the Metro, do take time to drop by River Park and look for Mati's Meats and Bread. I believe you'll be happy customers, too, like we were :) 

Steak with mashed potato and veggies
Oh, and I should mention that the view of a flowing river and a very pretty park outside the glass walls make eating at Mati's more memorable!
