    Mr Choi Kitchen: One of the popular Chinese Food Stall in Robinsons

    by machomikemd Written Mar 19, 2012

    This is easily one of the More Popular Restaurants in the huge Robinson's Galleria Complex in Mandaluyong City. It can be packed on most days since the Chinese food style here is typically Cantonese type of Cuisine, which is the most popular of Chinese Cuisine in the Philippines. Mr. Choi's Kitchen started here and branched out to Makati City and in Ermita in Manila. They also don't have MSG on their food and the price here is not that much.

    Favorite Dish: The price depends on what you would order like an order of Siomai Dumplings will cost 80 pesos an order, Bird's Nest Soup at 250 pesos for a large order, Soy Chicken half order at 220 pesos and more. they have an extensive selection of cantonese Specialties.

    Opens from 10:00 am - 10:00 pm

    C2 Classic Cuisine: A surprise

    by monina_c Written Apr 11, 2011

    It was one of those things. You are asked to suggest a venue for a cozy VT dinner meet and you've tried almost all the Filipino restaurants in a specific area (in this case, SM Megamall)... What do you do? Google it, of course!!! I found C2 online and suggested that we meet there for a VTer balikbayan friend.

    I am glad that we chose to meet there! C2 gives a modern twist to traditional Filipino dishes without sacrificing flavor and presentation. The crew is very helpful without being pushy and are genuinely concerned with the guests' comfort and needs.

    Favorite Dish: I liked their Seared Tilapia with Coconut Emulsion to which we requested they add more chopped chilis. Their version of the diningding was really good! The others in the group loved the sauteed mungbean with crispy pork belly and fried fish on the side. The ginataang puso ng saging was flavorful. The clincher is their dessert, Durian Cream Brulee, which really made my night complete!!!

    Racks: I Love Their Grilled Baby Back Ribs & More!

    by cyndymc Written Apr 5, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One thing I like about the Racks chain of restaurants is the service crew's fast, efficient service. From the time you arrive, you will be escorted to a seat at the restaurant which is totally a non-smoking area. Another plus factor for me is the availability of an in-house restroom. The diners don’t have to walk far to the mall’s public restrooms.

    Favorite Dish: Racks is known for its grilled baby back ribs that “melt” in your mouth. It had proven itself in that department; their meats are really tender and their sauce is delicious. For our recent visit however, we tried to shy away from the meats, specifically our favorite Racks Baby Ribs for health reasons. I ordered Salad with Blackened Chicken Strips and hubby got Carbonara. We were both very satisfied with the food!

    elfav ice creamery: Something Different!

    by monina_c Updated Sep 25, 2009

    I was waiting for the rain to stop tonight (sept. 25 2009) and chanced to see a new food outlet near the Robinson's Galeria Grocery. The sign said elfav ice creamery (yup all in lower case). It was clean and styled like a typical soda fountain. There's a lot of comfortable seating and the decor consisted of a surf board, oars, lifepreserver and car plates. I also saw some power outlets, so i guess you can power up your laptop and go online while having a meal there. They had interesting selection of ice cream flavors (all made locally). They also serve $2 meals! The staff were nice and seem to know their products well which is nice.

    Favorite Dish: 1. Wasabi ice cream which really tasted like wasabi! i just wish they put in more wasabi! but it was quite a treat all the same.

    2. Choco chili icecream with its bits of chili which tickles the tongue with its bite. :)

    Chef's Quarter: Something Filling

    by monina_c Updated Jul 12, 2009

    Chef's Quarter is one of the newer restaurants that opened at the SM Megamall Atrium.
    It has eclectic mix of international cuisine ranging from Japanese to Italian. The restaurant offers both buffet and ala carte dining. The crew are helpful and most knowledgeable about the dishes offered in the restaurant. The restroom is well-maintained and well-lit.

    Favorite Dish: I liked their peppered steak, their Tessie Tomas salad (with smoked salmon and prawns) is really good! The tartness of their hot calamansi is a welcome soother to my sore throat. The fish and chips looked promising but i was too full after my steak that I had to reserve it for next time! ;) For dessert I had their blueberry cheese cake which is better that the other cheesecakes I had before. The contrast between the tart/sweetness of the blueberries and the richness of the cheesecake and whipped cream is very... how shall I put it?... Yummy! :)

    The price is at par with other restaurants at its level.

    Red Mango!: Yummy Dessert!!!

    by monina_c Written Jun 10, 2009

    Yummy frozen yogurt topped with whatever you want is top on my list of desserts!
    Red Mango offers an endless permutation of dessert with yogurt as its main ingredient. You can have a dish of your choice for as low as P100.
    My favorite is original yogurt topped with shaved almonds, muesli and bluberries! Very satisfying!

    The store is very well appointed, the fixtures (tables, couches, etc.) not too crowded... giving it an illusion of roominess. The staff are very patient and accomodating.

    Bubble Tea: Tokyo "Invasion" =)

    by nixca316 Updated Oct 8, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Visit http://ilovebubbletea.multiply.com and http://www.tokyobubbletea.jp for more details.

    We enjoyed our first visit @ Mega Mall though I'm very familiar with this place because of my visits to Japan.

    バブルティーを気に入ってくれると!

    There is real value for money...RJ has a big appetite and what we usually pay for in several thousands of Pesos in other Japanese restos, we paid only for more than 800 Pesos. Wow! Well, Karate Kid, Teriyaki Boy and Tokyo Tokyo are still a little cheaper, but hey, Bubble Tea is Bubble Tea!

    The place has a warm and friendly atmosphere...the food is GREAT and the service is commendable!

    Krocodile Grille: Eat like a croc!

    by monina_c Updated Apr 14, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The restaurant itself is unprepossessing except for the grinning giant styrofoam crocodile hanging from the ceiling! :D They serve Filipino food.

    Favorite Dish: I liked their Croc's deviled crispy pata (deliciously spicy) and their pork sinigang. The Aligi pasta is also good.

    Mannang: Modern Pinoy

    by monina_c Updated May 18, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Mannang is a restaurant that tweaks traditional Filipino dishes to bring refreshing fares to its costumers' tables. The restaurant is clean and the wait staff efficient. Nothing remarkable in its decor. Best of all is the price (e.g. 10 pax dinner only cost around USD40), very reasonable.

    Favorite Dish: My favorites are:
    1. Corned Beef Sinigang (see picture)
    2. Shrimp & Mango Salad with Jellyfish
    3. Tofu Sisig
    4. Chili Shanghai (see picture)
    5. Baked Oysters

    Hula-Hula: Seafood and Barbecue House

    by yellowbell Written Jan 8, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Seafood Island and Hula Hula Restaurant belong to the same chain of restaurants serving seafood and barbecue. This restaurant is ideal for groups of people as it serves barbecue/seafood for 3-4 people or 5-6 people.

    Rice and viands are served in a tray of banana leaves and you'd eat picnic style!

    Favorite Dish: Food groups are named after tropical islands:

    Bora Bora (for Boracay)
    Davao

    *can be a combination of any of the following: grilled tilapia, pork barbecue, rice (bagoong/shrimp paste rice or rice with shreds of crab), kilawing tanigue (raw fish in vinegar), mussels, grilled spareribs, crabs, oysters

    Love their mango/orange side dish (atchara style)!

    Crustasia at The Podium: Good Tasting Seafood

    by monina_c Written Oct 3, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The restaurant is part of the Red Crab chain. The branch at The Podium has nice interior with very Asian feel. The cuisine is a mixture of different Asian influences. I heard all their crabs and seafoods are being delivered fresh each day from Pampanga and Roxas City! The service isn't bad either. :D

    Favorite Dish: Everything in their menu looked delicious but I especially liked the following:
    Crab Maritess, Grilled Squid, Steamed Fish, Kankong Salad, Catfish Salad, Steamed Kingfish, Salted Fish Fried Rice, Bagoong Rice, Roast Chicken.

    Our Father's Coffee (OFC): Proudly Local

    by monina_c Updated Jul 11, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This cannot be properly called a restaurant since their fare is limited to coffee, tea and desserts. But despite its limitations, its turned out to be one of my favorite hang-outs. This cafe is very patriotic! and only serves domestic tea and coffee. Their selection includes coffee from the Cordilleras, Batangas, Cavite and Bukidnon. Same thing with their teas which includes such flavors as hibiscus, tsaang gubat and those herbal/medicinal teas like lagundi, ampalaya, sambong, ginger, etc. Of course one mustn't forget to mention their innovation on the national staple, pan de sal which they call "fun de sal". Fun de sal is good old pandesal flattened into a circle with turned up edge to accomodate toppings like condensed milk, sardines and an assortment of jellies. Very fun to eat.

    Favorite Dish: My coffee of choice are Kapeng Barako and Kapeng Benguet sweetened with moscovado. I love their fun de sal topped with condensed milk which reminds me of my favorite childhood afternoon snack. My tea of choice is Tsaang Gubat (I have yet to muster enough internal strength to try thier ampalaya tea !)
