Eat & Go SM Megamall Atrium

After a long absence from blogging, I am now officially back to the world of sharing ideas, thoughts, photographs and most especially things about FOOD! For the re-opening salvo of Halie's Kitchen, here's a review of Eat & Go.

The Interior of the Restaurant

The restaurant is located at the new Atrium of the SM Megamall in Mandaluyong. It's situated near the escalators on the 3rd floor of the new building. The place is cozy and even if there are a lot of people inside and outside, there seems to be a homey feeling while you dine. It was a great place to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary last Friday, 25th of January!

Let's get to the food.

We ordered the Executive Meal 1 which consisted of the following:

2 refillable glasses of a drink of your choice
2 entrees for each plate (valued at Php195 per entree)
1 side dish per plate
1 salad

for extra, we ordered a plate of Gambaretti

Here are the photos:

Those were refillable glasses of freshly squeezed lemons, lemonade if you will. What we liked about it - it wasn't sweet nor was it too sour. It was just right and definitely refreshing.

We had the Waldorf Salad that day. I would say that there was a little some to be desired about it. Overall though, it was good and a perfect way to start your meal.

Our main food: Peppered Chicken with Pasta (white sauce for him and red for me) and corn and carrots.

As you can see, the servings were quite huge! The peppered chicken was a delight. You just have to be careful not to eat all the sauce that it comes with because you might find it a little bit salty. The pasta was perfect! I liked the red sauce which was cooked the way I liked it, a little bit sour, Italian style. The white sauce pasta was also good, but add a little more pepper and it will rock! As for the side dish, the serving was a lot and it will fill you up real good.

And our extra order of Gambaretti:

As for the supposedly spicy shrimp, this dish was a little bit of a let down. The shrimp was a little on the cross between cooked and half cooked. It was gummy but it wasn't raw. It was a little on the pale side and there was something missing with it. I guess it lacked in garlic, olive oil, salt and of course the spicy-ness that I tasted the first time I tried it. 

Overall, the restaurant was good. It provided prompt service and the staff was friendly. Should you decide to visit the restaurant and order the gambaretti, please make sure to instruct the server to cook it thoroughly and don't forget the garlic because that was the thing that made it really good!

Till my next post! Thanks for stopping by my kitchen again.  

Brightest Blessings!
