Café Plazuela; A venture to a new world of Culinary Creations


Last weekend Bicol Bloggers were invited by Avenue Plaza hotel to present their latest culinary offers from Cafe Plazuela. Its a place where you get to taste International and local flavors. And as a Hotel and Restaurant Management student I must say that I was really impressed with the food and the service this hotel offers. It was top notch! I can't wait to make a review about the whole hotel experience! 
  
The dining area was nice and comfortable but maybe they could add a high divider for a little privacy of the guests.
