Review: The Urban Cafe, Quezon City

October 16, I received an invitation from Zomato for the grand opening of The Urban Cafe, and promptly said “YES! I’m going!” A cafe inside the hardware, that is The Urban Cafe. I was surprised when I found out that the main product is crocodile meat. Yes! Haha. The owner has a crocodile farm so they decided to introduce the crocodile meat to the market. Don’t worry! This is legit! 🙂 Actually the owner are planning to export their products in Russia and China! 

For appetizer, we tried Croc Cigar for only P160.00. Crocodile meat with basil, cheese and olive. Two pieces of cheese flavor and two pieces jalapeño.
