Venues' Special: Star Vista | ThumbsForFood

Today's post is different from our usual food reviews. We are going to have a Venue's Special where we will introduce what's there to eat at a certain place/mall. So, today, it will be a new mall at Buona Vista called Star Vista. The design of the mall is uniquely integrated into the natural environment in the area. I will be introducing some special eateries in the mall that might entice you!
