I love discovering new restaurants, especially little family-run ones with a lot of heart. Located in Laguna Central Mall in Sta. Rosa Laguna, SOCRATES SECRET is a secret you wouldn’t want to keep! It’s on the way to Nuvali or Tagaytay so you can definitely consider this as a pit stop on your way up or way back down to Manila. You can visit their FB page here for directions and details 🙂
The cool blues that reign dominant in their restaurant interiors will definitely remind you of the crystal blue waters of the Aegean sea. It feels warm and homey and definitely has a nice Greek charm to it. They also have an adorable play nook inside the restaurant making it perfect for families with kids. Now that we’re expecting, I’m taking note of all the family-friendly restos for future reference. Hehehe!
They serve hearty Mediterranean dishes, ranging from the light to heavy 🙂 For starters I loved their Falafels (This was incredibly tasty!!!!) and Hummus and Tapenade with Pita. For something more filling, I would recommend their Moussaka (this was surprisingly filling! Comfort food level!) and Chicken/Beef Kebabs. So delicious!!! Patrick also loved his well-seasoned Lamb Chops. They also serve refreshing drinks, I had a grape and mint shake and it was the perfect “beat the summer heat” kind of drink. For dessert we loved both the Baked Apple with Yummy Granola and Chocolate Coffee Mousse! Thanks again to Alex Staley and her wonderful family 🙂 🙂 We had such a memorable lunch at your restaurant.
