The Clairvoyant and I had to cancel our trip last December because of stormy weather and the threat of heavy rains that we thought could probably ruin our vacation. It didn't rain that weekend but it was gloomy for several days as one of the slowest typhoons to pass through the country practically camped between Luzon and the Visayas for several days. Not to be affected by the weather, we decided to go out and have an early lunch at the UP Town Center. After looking over menus displayed outside the restaurants, we decided to go for a steak lunch at Liberty New York Steakhouse.
The place wasn't crowded and we were able to get a good table. We ordered our steaks and enjoyed a very nice lunch along with our usual kwentuhan of how we were to spend the holidays. Of course, we also planned out the "make-up" for our vacation trip. Here are some photos of what we had at the restaurant. We didn't go for the expensive steaks on their menu as we just wanted a straightforward and relatively inexpensive steak lunch.

Judging from the steaks that we got, I would say that the restaurant is a good find and a place we will be going to again in the near future should we have a craving for steaks. They do have specials and sets that I think would be affordable to students (yes, including the typical or average student from UP) but not for everyday lunches or dinners. Their selection in the menu is also quite good so you don't really have to go for steaks. The service at Liberty is good and I think it is a good thing to have a good steakhouse nearby the office and accessible for when you want to have that special lunch or craving for meat (apologies to my vegetarian friends).-
