AJ has been telling me about Venice Piazza at McKinley Hill in Taguig for a time, and he took me there one rainy Saturday so we can stroll around the piazza and check out the sights.Venice Piazza, as it name implies, looks like a small city square (“piazza“) with a mall that houses a variety of restaurants. It also has a paved open space that’s perfect for events, mini-concerts and bazaars. Too bad it was raining hard that Saturday afternoon so we weren’t able to see more of the piazza but we were able to look around the mall and found these interesting restaurants: Seeing all these restaurants really made us regret taking our early dinner at Taparazzi, but there was still room for dessert so we scouted for a nice after-dinner place to chill and have coffee.
We found Sol Gelato, which serves Italian gelato or ice cream. We tried their Affogato (P150.00), which comes with 2 big ice cream scoops that you can choose from among their selections. I chose the Coffee Crunch and Mascarpone Cheese flavors for my gelato, and they’re perfect for the pretty strong expresso! Sol Gelato is definitely worth trying, and so are the many restaurants lining up Venice Piazza. I can already see ourselves trying out the Ramen Bar next, and then cap it with another round of Affogato only at Sol Gelato.
