Unique. Does this single word give an impact? Yep! Most of us want to see and experience uniqueness in everything. Sometimes, for us to be remembered we are doing strange things that will make as our trademark. Isn’t it is easy to remember something if we find it really odd? Perhaps, this concept had crossed restaurant/cafe owners’ mind. If you’ve noticed, it is no longer new to us that there are lots of food stores that make their own ways to be recognized and be retained to people’s mind. And some of them go for having a unique cafe or restaurant theme that could catch diners’ attentions, just like these unique-themed cafes that can be found in Metro Manila!
