Crimson Hotel's Cafe Eight.

Filipinos have this superstition called pagpag where one stops somewhere before going home when coming from a wake. So when T and I paid our respects to a friend's dad, we looked for a place in the Alabang area that was still open late at night.

I was a bit hungry and T wanted a cold beer so a gasoline station was our first option. Then we remembered a hotel called Crimson Hotel that opened recently and decided to check it out.

Crimson is more familiar to me as a nice resort in Cebu because it was one of my options during our spontaneous trip last year (read about my blog post on Valentines Weekend in Cebu).

This is the lobby of Crimson Hotel in Alabang.

At the end of the lobby is Crimson's 24-hour bar/restaurant called Cafe Eight.

I got a Club Sandwich (P320/$8) which is multiple layers of wheat bread with ham, bacon, fried egg, lettuce, chicken breast, cheese, mayo, mustard and served with french fries and coleslaw salad.

I also got a fresh Mango Shake.

T got a bottle of Stella Artois.

Craving and superstition satisfied! It was time to call it a night.. Or a morning :)

Thumbs Up!
Courteous and accommodating staff (even if it's already in the middle of the night)
Open 24 hours.
Free wifi.

Thumbs Down!
Nothing really.

T and I want to come back to try their buffet.
