Zagat – Cendrillon, one of our favorite eateries on Mercer Street has the ambience of an old townhouse-turned-restaurant, complete with the ubiquitous narrow entrance with a signature deep yet airy back room. We’ve become quite the regulars, and wonder if they still think we are there to “rate” the food. Hmmm?

Here’s an old review. Must get another [updated] soon.

Better than traditional Filipino fare, their offerings aren’t teeming with high caloric, cholesterol-clogging oils and fats. Have the chicken bbq or seafood paella – portion sizes are enough to sate your appetite not the can’t-eat- another-bite indulgence. Traditional halo, halo and ube/ blueberry tarts coupled with their exotic pot tea menus make it worth stopping by for a bite any time.
