Le Petit Chéri – Molito Alabang

As the French said: “Bon Apetit!”

Le Petit Cheri… “The little darling…”

Long before guests flocked to this new French restaurant that I recently discovered with my in-laws a few weeks ago, which is located in Molito, Alabang.

Molito, Alabang

I have always been in this area since my high school days and it had been my rendezvous from then on. It was the nearest mall at that time, and being an only child, I happen into that generation when parents are still strict and going far from home is a no no to them. Alabang, as a teenager, became my heaven on earth. Everything that I need is there.

Just recently, one whole block that used to be vacant for years is now a block with restaurants of all kinds lining up. My friend commented that it is similar to Nuvali in Sta. Rosa, Laguna. My take is, it’s the trend now. The Food & Beverage industry is giving us Filipinos, a wide array of choices as to where to drink and dine, as we are very much known to be Food lovers. As the movie said:

people who lovew to eat
“People who love to eat are always the best people.”

On first queue is Le Petit Cheri. It is a French restaurant offering breakfast, brunch, lunch, snack and dinner. They serve the usual French cuisine making Filipinos settle for a different taste from time to time. The line up on that block includes Japanese restaurants, Mexican, Chinese, Filipino/ Spanish (I saw Cafe Juanita – which pilot branch is in Pasig, though I like the one in Burgos circle, Bonifacio Global City), Booze bars,  and many others.

Le Petit Cherie – Little darling…

I agreed with my friend, not only in Nuvali, I see the resemblance in many areas in Makati, Ortigas, Bonifacio Global City and even in Cagayan De Oro City. Yet, Alabang, aside from being close to my house, has been closer to my heart for years. It was like home to me. My comfort zone. Finding out about Molito gave me excitement like that of a child. At first glance, I knew then it’s going to be another home for me, when eating out is the theme.

Take a look inside:

Molito, expect me repeatedly… =) As a food lover like most Filipinos, I noticed the trending flux in our country, restaurants loom here and there, each has a special offering, not only their food but the interiors, service and theme of their place as well. This affinity includes me in the list. Eating out especially with old friends and family is a way of life not only of me but of most Filipinos.

My newest rendezvous! =)


They invented the word “Molito” to paraphrase a small mall. Cute! Isn’t it?
