I like hanging out here in UCC Clockwork over at Bluebay (D. Macapagal corner Edsa). I like the ambiance and the food choices, though it could be pricey. I typically order the Stroganoff pasta or, if I'm starving, the Hawaiian pork chop. The place rarely gets crowded and the noise level is not painful to the ears. It is easy to have a relaxed conversation here.
And it's a place that serves Yamazaki single malt!
And, of course, it is a striking distance from Victoria Court!
