You're seeing the picture right. I didn't purposely invert it... And I think this is one restaurant that has a cool theme you'll never get tired of. So after our Sunday service, I invited my family to have lunch at Pan De Amerikana, White Plains branch to witness the uniqueness of its interior and facade (partial). And this is only the beginning...
The restaurant greets you with a bridge on the left, before entering the main dining area. This is a welcome change to the kids who were so excited to see fishes swimming happily!
Inverted fixtures plus a grand piano hang on its ceiling; making it the focal point of the restaurant. While enjoying the dishes we ordered, I would see the other customers capturing the very scene that catches everyone's attention. I just hope that it is properly fastened and secured before someone gets hurt, lol.
The foods are very affordable yet seemingly satiating; nothing exemplary though. The plating is not as enticing as when you dine in a classy restaurant. It is akin though to home cooking that will certainly make you order for more. For example, their family platter is an affordable P350, fresh lumpia at P45 and halo-halo is P50. And they have a wide variety of food selections for the meat lovers or the figure conscious that are mostly Pinoy cuisines.
Before entering their comfort rooms, an area for washing the hands is strategically located at the far end of the room. There is even a smaller basin available for the little ones who might have dirtied their fingers while savoring their orders!
Every corner is a sight to behold! You'll guess that the owner has a collection of myriad things like old photos of movie personalities showcased in one portion of the restaurant, the bathroom's wall filled with lids and bowls that seemed antiquated and there was even a Land Rover! They also sold breads (wheat pan de sal and ensaymada); their very first product before the owners added more choices to their menu. To date, they have other three branches within Metro Manila. So the next time you intend to have a not-so-ordinary dining experience, try it here!
