Salad Bowl, Molito, Alabang

I’m sure that we have over indulged ourselves sometimes with fatty, and oily food because of the comfort it gives. However, there are days when it feels like eating carbs makes us feel bloated, or there are days when we have woken up and decided to practice healthy eating diet (just for the day, lol). With this, salad is one of the food we can run to. Salad Bowl as its specialty that is located in Molito, Alabang can surely feed the hungry Southerners.

It was raining hard when us, bloggers, got there. Travelling from the north (Quezon Ave), we know that the greens would never fail to fill our growling tummy. Well, we just eat everything LOL! So let’s get this started.

Starters

Who would not know of the green local peppers coated of wrapper stuffed with cheese to become an appetizer? This street food is known as “dynamite” because of the exploding spiciness. On the other hand, the Sili Sticks (P150) of Salad Bowl is little to no spicy. The diners won’t have to worry if they have zero tolerance of the hot feeling.

Because of the greatness of its presentation, it got hard for us to know if how should we be eating this dish. When we have sliced the tomato, it’s surprising that this is a smoked fish dish bathed in a light cream.  Smoked Fish Barrel (P199.50).

Pasta

Layered. Whenever I see a food like this, I am starting to generalize that it’s a lasagna and I was not wrong. Eggplants, carrots, cream, cheese, meat, parsley surrounded with greens, the diners would not regret trying Vegetable Lasagna (P280).

This pasta, Smoked Salmon Pasta (P295) is also cream-based but colored orange. Is it not because of tomato as an ingredient? On the other hand, the chunky salmon is love! It’s nice that even if the pasta is cream-based, it is not heavy. This is definitely healthy eating!

Salad Bowls

The Barbecue Chicken Salad (P280) comes in stripped greens so while eating it, I was imagining that the greens is a pasta. The taste is delicious I almost forgot that it’s not a pasta!

I like how they make the meat of  Japanese Chicken Corn Sesame Salad (P350) blends on its sweetness of the corn because the meat is salty.

Wraps

If I were to choose, I like the Truffle Bacon, Beef and Cheese Wrap (P390) better because it is tastier. Maybe it has a secret sauce or probably it’s the cheese! There’s nothing wrong with Chicken Inasal Wrap (P260), it’s just that it’s very much leafy.

Meat

The sauce of Chicken Arugula Pesto (P280) has a bitter taste but it’s a perfect pair for the smoky and peppery chicken.

The Grass Fed Burger (P275) is a must try! This is sulit. It’s not greasy but satiated my appetite. The idea of “grass fed” made me think I was really going for healthy options when dining in here.

The Grilled Beef Tomahawk (P4,000) is perfected in a way that we have fallen in love at first sight on this steak. This bad boy has an exemplary taste served medium rare. Potato wedges, grilled bell peppers and carrots, and the cabbage and arugula made this dish even more visually appealing.

Happy birthday to Cohen who’s holding a cake from Salad Bowl! More years to come #vegetaBELLS

The restaurant is inspired in shades of green and brown as a symbol of them serving healthy food fresh from the farm. Yes, Salad Bowl sources its produce from their own farm in Cavite. The food served does not come in small portioning so I can say that the price is very affordable. The taste is well-thought because of the balanced flavors. The diners can get full just by spending P250+. The place looks so spacious because of the high ceiling and the air con is working properly. The service is fast but has not really felt much of the presence of the staff. Lastly, I like that they still offer meat for giving consideration that the diners have different preferences of food and changing mood. 🙂 Hope they’d open in the north area!

Skippy’s Bar & Grill, Bonifacio Global City

The 28th of June marks the opening of Australian restaurant Skippy’s Bar & Grill at the Bonifacio Global City. Skippy’s Bar & Grill is owned by two lovey-dovey couple, Miss Cristina Sarabia and Sir Stephen Bird.Image

My co-bloggers and I  talked with Miss Gella, the brand’s marketing employee, and she told us about the symbols and paraphernalia attached to the walls of the establishment. The pictures below have significance for Australians. She also mentioned that the market of Skippy’s are expats.skippy_paraphernalia

After that, we got an hour of Aussie treat. Here’s the food we had!

Battered Dim Sims (P 250.00) is a popular snack in Australia and it is like a dumpling, and it is fried. Its size is like a nugget, but bigger. Before eating, it must be sprinkled with a seasoning (that is a bit salty), and a mayo dip.Image

Aside from lettuce, Skippy’s Salad (P 250.00) is made of ham, grilled chicken, egg, and cheese. The vegetables are thinly sliced. I bet that eating this alone can already make you full.Image

Meanwhile, the Green Salad (P 200.00) has more greens than Skippy’s Salad. It comes with the same dressing, too.Image

I totally like the Shepherd’s Pie (P 450.00) because it is far different from the homemade pies I have tasted. This one contains ground lamb and the stuffed mashed potatoes make the dish even more delicious. Image

Meanwhile, the Chicken Parmigiana (P 450.00) is an oven baked crumbed chicken with tomato sauce and cheese. I also like this dish! Plus, the criss-cross fries are very presentable.Image

Cranberry Juice (P 100.00) helped me wash down all of the food I ate. Their juice is good! Meanwhile, Carol ordered for Four Seasons (P 100.00)Image

Going back to the food, the Baby Back Ribs (P195.00 PROMO) is tender, of course. However, I find it a bit oily.Image

Both their Baby Back Ribs, the Salisbury Steak are served with coleslaw. The burger is a bit small, but the taste is not that bad.Image

The Shawarma Pizza is a must-try for it is overloaded with toppings like onion, tomato, cucumber, lettuce, cumin, mozarella, grilled sirloin, and it has yogurt too!Image

Meanwhile, The Big Breakfast has 2 eggs, bacon, sausage, baked beans, tomato, mushrooms, hash brown, toasted bread, butter, and an unlimited brewed coffee or glass of iced tea for only P 310.00. This is so worth it!Image

After eating, they offered us cocktails. I had their Strawberry Margarita (P 230.00). Their Strawberry Margarita is less strong than Chihuahua’s. After that, they present to us their Flaming Lambhorgini (P450.00) which was shot by Aldous. Thanks for inviting me again, Aldous.Image

The PR delightfully shared us their oozing promotions like:

serves breakfast for as low as P165 with great selection to choose from. They serve breakfast from 9AM to 3 PM

*affordable lunch menu for only P195 serving from 11AM to 7PM.

*drink till you drop unli-cocktail promotion happening every Sunday to Thursday. For a meager price of P379, one can drink to his heart’s desire with over 40 selections to choose from.

*Skippy’s offer a 4+1 local beer selection during its crazy long happy hour starting from 10AM to 8PM every Monday to Saturday, and all-day during Sunday Fun Day.

*Skippy’s flavorful chicken wings –14 pieces of this delectable intense wings are up for grabs for only P150 from Sunday to Tuesday when availing of the 4+1 local beer promo.

From the interiors to the dishes they offer, I absolutely love the ambience of the restaurant, because its appearance is pretty much like what we see in international films. Moreover, I also like places where the bar is located at the center. I’m just really particular with this one, sorry. Their air conditioner is not working properly, but they told us that they are working on it as well as their WiFi connection. In addition, they have different activities each day. We visited the place on a Tuesday so we had an acoustic night! As for the pricing, I’d say that the prices and serving size were well-assessed for the food and serving., I would definitely enjoy the food if I am not on a diet. The servers are all bubbly, I swear.Image
