What do Music Lovers and Coffee Lovers Have In Common?

I am a certified coffee drinker and to put it bluntly, I never spent a day in my life without having a cup or two. As a matter of fact, my day will never be complete without it. There's certain kind of magic in coffee that it became my constant energy booster (blame it to the caffeine). :)

I also noticed that when I'm feeling low or sick, I would always resort to drinking coffee and this will improve my feelings instantly.  I'm not a music addict though, probably last time when I'm a bit younger, but now I would say that I am more addicted to coffee than music although there are things that music lovers and coffee lovers have in common.

Music lovers and coffee lovers both love to travel.  They are always hungry to discover new places and they are usually the adventurous type of people.  They both want to explore and they both have passion for the arts and are usually nature lovers.  I always imagine myself drinking a cup of coffee while watching the beauty of nature.  Music lovers on the other hand are not very particular on the kind of instruments they are using to play their music.  Whether it's a les paul junior or the one of lesser quality, it doesn't matter as long as while the music plays, you know who you are and everything you wish to be.

Chopping Board Cafe and Bistro, Subic Bay Freeport Zone

It was my first time at Chopping Board and this was on my daughter's birthday held first week of this month.  My daughter has been asking me to try this place for months now as she's been here several times with her friends.  I was quite hesitant to go and visit this place as I am thinking that this might be just another normal restaurant inside the Subic Bay Freeport Zone and the fact that it's quite far from the Main Gate turns me off.  I've been telling my daughter that there are lots of restaurants to try inside Harbor Point so going a bit farther for just another normal restaurant wouldn't be a good idea.

Since it was my daughter's birthday, I just let her decide where she wanted to dine and this gave me the unwelcome opportunity to try the place.  As we approached the place, I've already felt the cozy ambiance of this restaurant.  There is an outdoor seating for those who would like to dine in a la fresco and for those who would like to have a private space, you can just proceed to the main dining hall. The place is tastefully decorated and I would say simple but modern.  It reminds me of Ben's Kitchen located at Ayala Harbor Point because of the food selection in the menu.  They mostly served pasta, sandwiches, salads and assortment of desserts but they also have a section in the menu wherein you can find some authentic Filipino dishes.  Nothing is actually unique in this restaurant as far as foods selection is concerned but I like it very much that they served not so common drinks like Pandan Juice and Lemon Grass Juice which is quite good as an option for healthy conscious customers. :)

Since that wouldn't be our last stop for the night, we just opted for pasta and drinks.  My daughter wanted to see a live band later in the night, so we have reserved some space in our tummy for pizzas, chicken, cheese sticks and some appetizers.  

The pasta serving is just of the standard size (good for one person) and the cost ranges from 120 to 145.  The taste is more to Italian flavor but I did love my Spaghetti Bolognese which comes with a slice of garlic bread.  Hubby ordered Carbonara and my daughter and his friend ordered Chicken Pasta ( I forgot the exact name, lol).

Overall, I love the ambiance of the restaurant, it's clean and very inviting.  The food is rated 3 star though and the price is comparable to Ben's Kitchen and Extremely Expresso.  This could be an option when you get tired of eating at the usual restos at the Harbor Point but going here regularly may not be budget friendly though.

Chopping Board is located at Lincoln St Subic Bay Freeport Zone.  It's near to San Roque Church and Bldg 229.
