Lilac Street in Marikina is full of instagrammable restaurants, cafes, and food parks. One of them is Forget Me Not Cafe, which has been standing since 2012. More than its Instagram-worthy spots, Forget Me Not Cafe features a variety of dishes in their menu that you will surely love.
Forget Me Not is more accessible via private cars, but there are also public-transportation options. One is via Marcos Highway. From any point in the East, ride a jeep going to Cubao then go down at either (1) Tropical or (2) Ligaya, Marikina. If you choose option 1, cross the bridge toward the other side of the highway and ride a tricycle going to 24 Lilac. If you choose option 2, go down at Ligaya (nearest landmark is Ayala Malls Feliz) and then ride a jeepney with a “Marikina Stoplight” label (minimum fare). Tell the driver to drop you off at Marikina Spotlight, and then ride another jeep going to SSS (minimum fare). Always remind the driver to drop you at Lilac Street (or for your convenience, use Google Maps). Forget Me Not is within a ten-minute walk.
No doubt that Forget Me Not has many Instagram-worthy spots. They have to repaint their walls though so they wouldn’t get behind newer restaurants.
They have two floors, the second floor being larger the first. And just in case you need to “answer the call of the wild,” you don’t need to worry as they have a bidet in their toilet.
They serve creamy food, so if you opt for that, then try their menu. I ordered their best-selling roast beef worth Php 320, gaining a 7/10 as I expected it to be a little saltier. And if you order their pumpkin soup along with any rice meal, you will only have to pay Php 85. I was a bit disappointed as, like the roast beef, it lacked saltiness (6/10).
I expected so much with their drinks, but their iced caramel macchiato (Php 135) tasted bland (6/10). Their oreo cheesecake (Php 135) did not disappoint though (9/10).
