I am at Barbara's ... it is circa 2012 but I feel like I've been transported back to circa 1898.
Barbara's is one of Intramuros well kept secret. In fact, it was only through word of mouth that I heard of this place. It was a very soft whisper. If you ask people about it, they would tell you its a wedding reception place but no one would think to dine here on their own, with a family, or on a date.
It's time to change that. Barbara's is actually a family owned restaurant that aims to allow people to attend a salo salo straight out of Noli Me Tangere while showcasing cultural dances that promises to elicit a gasp and thunderous applause. The cultural show is such a crowd pleaser that you'd have to have extremely poor taste or lacking the cultural bone in your body to not appreciate it.
And the thing that I love most about the place was that it was a picture waiting to tell a thousand stories. So, come visit me.
