i was intrigued to try out the banoffee pie that's been getting raves... hmmm... was disappointed... not that it's not delish, but it wasn't as good as i've read from the reviews here... it's just ok lang... i personally think red ribbon's banoffee is way better... i also tried their caramel cake, it's good, but a tad bit too sweet for me...
as for the entrees, i ordered the chicken rolls with basil cream sauce (it looked and tasted more like gravy rather than a cream sauce), and my hubby ordered the porkloin with herbed mushroom gravy... both dishes have very salty sauces... im not sure if the cook's taste is really on the salty side, or maybe the sauce was re-heated quite a lot of times, thus making it saltier than it has to be... but 2/2 of the sauces on our dishes are really salty...
ambiance is ok, hopefully you don't go there if there are noisy groups, since place is quite small, and you can literally hear the conversation from the next table...
overall experience... it was ok.. maybe i'd give it another chance... maybe i could try other dishes, maybe it's just a case of ordering the wrong dishes!?!? i'd still give it another go, since i would love to try out their other cakes...
My wife and I go to Trinoma mall so when one of our friends and neighbors suggested we try UCC there we went for lunch. We had the mushroom and chicken risotto and grilled chicken salad. The salad was very good, healthy and big enough for two. The risotto was also tasty but a bit bland.
Service was ok and the restaurant is very well designed with an extensive menu. To us it seemed about 200 pesos too expensive. Given the large number of other dining options we may not be back but we dont regret our one visit
if you're in the mood for nice, tender steaks, i do reco tender bob's at shangri-la mall top level.
the portion is big. for ladies, i'd say it's good for 2! ...but if you're a lady who's yoyo-south beach dieting like me, don't share! :-) the best side dish for me is their Potato Skins, served with 2 dips -cheese and garlic ranch(i think), this is an exciting take on the usual french fries... and of course, your usual ice cold drink, coke zero is my preference.
seeing the other reviews here, am not sure if it's the branch but i always get good, prompt service at Tender Bob's Shangri-la, though haven't tried the other branches. as for the extra charge for the sauce, haven't really tried ordering extras, but if they do charge me for the extra ranch/dip sauce for my potato skins, i personally wouldn't mind if that's gonna make me continue to enjoy my meal even more, and I do over-indulge in the sauce anyway, as in.. :-)
good thing about burgoo is they more often have tie-ups with credit cards... promos like you get a free entree for 2 main entrees ordered... it's a good deal specially if there are 3 or 4 of you...
i noticed that their servings and they way they cook some dishes are inconsistent... sometimes the meats are tender and juicy, at times too dry... last time i dined there, i ordered the cheesy beefy baked macaroni... it was neither cheesy nor beefy... i can barely see any meat! after that incident, i haven't gone back...
what sets this place apart is the shabu-shabu. the squid balls, pork mushroom balls n dumplings are very good, not the kind u get at other places that taste generic. but the key here is their soup, sate in particular, that make their shabu shabu better than others. now for the bad news, u have to pay for everything, yep, thats right. i mean the sate sauce, garlic, raw chili, etc. which, depending on how much u consume will jack up your bill. they dont have set menus, unlike other restos so choose wisely. but the prices are reasonable compared to others. the ala carte dishes they offer are ok, not outstanding. so if u have a craving for hot soup, u cant go wrong with this place.
Hindi ko na mabilang kung ilang beses na kaming kumain ng mga kaopisina ko dito, kung ilang birthdays na ang na-celebrate namin sa Napoli. Nasa Top 3 'to ng mga paborito naming lugar, halos saulado na nga namin ang presyo ng mga pagkain.
Kahit na yung pesto with chicken cutlets at oil and garlic pasta with hungarian sausage ang lagi kong ino-order dito, panalo rin para sa'kin yung pasta puttanesca at seafood pasta nila. At ano nga ba ang da best na kapartner ng pasta kundi pizza diba? Try nyo yung cheeseburger pizza, at napoli special. Medyo naaalatan nga lang ako ng konti sa puttanesca pizza.
Bukod sa pagkain, mahal na mahal namin 'tong lugar na'to kasi mura na, sulit pa. Lalo na kung marami kayong kakain at maghahati-hati, mas maliit ang babayaran. Ok din ang serving, pwede nang maghati ang 2 hanggang 3. Mabilis din ang service, at very accomodating ang mga tao.
Yun nga lang, madalas na sira yung restrooms nila.
Wicked Kitchen lives up to its name and the food is original, innovative, and fun! There's a lot of must-try items on the menu and like the previous reviewer says, the cream of broccoli soup is one of them. But what keeps me coming back are the seven desserts, which are named after and inspired by the seven deadly sins.
It's nice to have a restaurant like this in QC. The place is tiny but somehow it adds to the appeal. The interiors are warm, the lighting is nice, and the place is cozy overall. A warning, though: this being in a busy street fronting ABS-CBN, parking is a problem sometimes.
i'll make this short n sweet, the food was rich and tasty, but the portions were a bit disappointing, you probably have to order the bigger portions of some dishes to be truly satisfied. the skolatina is excellent, just wish it was a bit bigger.
i agree with the previous review that the laksa curry noodle soup is GOOD... big serving... i would recommend to share when you order this coz if you'd eat the entire bowl, you'll surely be very full and unable to eat anythingelse.... i just hope they serve the soup steamy hot...
i like their malayan chicken curry with potatoes, although i hope they'd put in more chicken rather than the potatoes... i think you can order this single-serve which comes with rice... and you may also opt to order the bigger portion for 2 at a higher price then order the rice separately... yummy sauce
mee goreng, pad thai and pandan chicken are good... nothing really extraordinary, just the standards...
although there was 1 time that i ate mee goreng in which the beansprouts are quite burned, but maybe it's a rare incidence...
forget the appetizer prawn balls with cheese... way too expensive for 4 pcs and i can't taste the cheese!
overall, it's a pleasant experience dining there... you just have to know what to order... servings are typical of many asian restos (small), except for the noodle soup...
I chance upon 145 not too long ago after a friend of mine tried it.
To my surprise, this is the only steakhouse i have ever tried that dares to go beyond the usual Rib Eye, Fillet Mignon, T-bone and other common cuts. They got about 7 different cuts ... my personnal favorite is the Rib Eye.
I had my prime rib eye cook medium. Fantastic ... without putting any sauces, i can smell and taste the goodness of the beef. the aroma is extra ordinary. this is the essence of beef eating !!!
after putting the sauce (i tried beef jus). it feels like i experienced UMAMI.... hehehe. sauce was consistent. very flavorfull.
garnishing was equally good. they use baby beans which are really sweet and has a crunchy feel to it.
well, a perfect steak dinner is best with a glass of wine. its a good thing i was with some of my friends so we decided to get a bottle. We tried this Argentinian wine which according to their wine list has a 90 point rating. I dont know much about wine but one thing i noticed was it does not have any dry after taste or what i would say "sabit". it was velvety smooth all the way.
ahh ... indeed a perfect dinner experience. love the place. love the food. love the wine.
I never was a veggie person. But the girl I was about to date wanted to have great salad. What do I know about salads?! So, I sent some text messages to friends who're health conscious and have tried different restos. 9 out of 10 who replied said to try Pho Hoa's Pomelo Shrimp salad. We went for lunch one Saturday morning and found the place with a little difficulty. Thanks to the friendly concierge staff.
I came 5 minutes early and sat on one of their comfy chairs. My date arrived and we ordered our meal. The waiters were a little rowdy and plates were handled unceremoniously. So I really didn't like it. Their service is not that exemplary either. But the place and ambiance is great!
The salad servings were excellent for a big boy like me (no wonder the price is at Php200 per plate). It's going to make me full even if it's just a salad! I must say, this Pomelo Shrimp Salad is the best salad I've tasted in my entire life! It's worth every centavo!
If you're a salad lover, this is worthy of recommendation.
We don't dine here offen because some of my family members is doesn't want to eat spicy food. Because of the name, they thought that all the food here are spicy. Anyway, I treat them here during my birthday.
Food: Food was so yummy. We ordered chicken crispers (the cheapest chicken in their menu). This is really value for your money because its so yummy and price is cheap. "Sulit na sulit! ". I ordred for Country Fried-chicken. This is the best! the sauce on top of the chicken taste so good.
What I don't like with their food is the fries. Fries of Friday's is taste better. Their fries is just like an ordinary french fries. Their mashed potato is a must try. It's one of the best mashed potato I ever tasted.
Service: Service is okay. Though it took a long before it was served.
Ambiance: Ambiance is good.
Value: Price is a bit high, but it's really worth it.
I really like the brocolli creamy soup here. it's a healthy soup with delectable taste. It's just that the place cannot accomodate numerous customers. There a lot of unique recipes thst must be tried. i am planning to go back again.
