Cafe Racer in Mandaue City

My friend invited me to try Cafe Racer on his birthday along Ouano Avenue at the North Reclamation Area in Mandaue City because it gave him a "Johnny Rockets kind of vibe" when he first drove by. I thought, the themed restaurant inspired by cafe racers in the United Kingdom would be pricey but I was surprised to see the prices in their menu.







The first few things that caught my attention are some vintage cars used to decorate the place and a gas pump by the al fresco dining area. Grilling actually takes place under the hood of a Volkswagen Beetle. The cashier area is in a Volkswagen Kombi Van and I can't help but notice that some oil barrels were designed into couches and stools. Some tools decorate the walls inside the air conditioned dining area. The gas pump-looking stuff that first caught my attention is actually a beer dispenser.
