Being a mermaid is one of a girl’s dream and guess what, you can actually turn into a mermaid in this first ever mermaid cafe in the Philippines, Under The Sea.
Since this is just above Rainbow Dreams Cafe, we decided to give it a visit as well. Besides, we’re with Melissa, the mermaid. Haha.
Under The Sea: Mermaid Cafe
Upon entering, you can already feel like you’re underwater! The whole cafe is painted from ceiling to floor with all things you can find under the sea: corals, fishes and plants. They also have cute stuff toys like mermaids and turtles to play around. There’s even a huge clam waiting for you mermaids! :)
Under The Sea Cafe is the first ever mermaid-themed cafe in the Philippines and it just recently opened so a lot of people are coming in. Make sure to come early to get a good spot! They are open from 12:00PM to 10:00PM.
We chose to sit on the floor which gives more under the sea feeling! Hehe
And hey, they also have this “fish-catching” game that is very nostalgic. Remember playing this when you were a kid? :)
Mermaid-themed Food & Drinks
What made it even better is the well-presented food & drinks they offer. Everything on their menu are in theme!
Because I am still a bit full from the previous cafe, I only ordered one meal (a rice meal haha) called Parmesan Crusted Fish Fillet (Php 150). However, I didn’t know that I have no solo photo of it. :( But you can see it on the photo below, the one on the top right corner. Hehe
But of course, since my friends are generous (haha), I took bites from their orders too. :)
Cajun Fish and Fries (Php 170)
French Fries with Honey Mustard Dip (Php 100)
Garlic Chicken Pesto (Php 130)
Sweet and Spicy Pulled Pork Rice (Php 150)
Since I can’t each too much sweets, I decided to share desserts with the girls. Here are the desserts that are presented in a very cute way!
Crushed grahams as sand for this Sand bucket Cheesecake (Php 100)! How artistic is that? I also like how different it is presented from other cheesecakes I’ve tried. I love cheesecakes and this one did not disappoint!
Look at how creative this is! Purple Yam in Coconut Shell (Php 120), which is simply ube jam presented very well. It looks so beautiful I don’t even wanna destroy it. Haha.
Price range is from Php 60 to Php 180 which is pretty much affordable for me. And what makes it better is that you can borrow a mermaid tails (and even clam-shaped bras) for FREE for every minimum purchase worth Php 150. No extra fees needed to transform into a mermaid! :) They even have various sizes for kids and adults.
