gumbo at robinsons place manila midtown

girls night out and we decided to meet at robinsons place manila (with a plan to watch movie after dinner but knew that we'll just end up talking all night long and forget about watching movies). anyways, i was surprised to find that the new wing or the midtown mall is already open and it is huge! feels like an ayala owned mall. (my bad i forgot to take pics of the facade it look so elegant.)

outside there's the usual tree with lights and what attracted me the most is this fountain... eh well i've always loved fountains!


we checked out the new stores (very few establishment is open as of now) and of course i had to buy this cute hello kitty picture frame at Clipper.

spied the food outlets and Gumbo at the third level caught our attention... it says a taste of new orleans so we decided to give it a try, besides i love their ceiling fan and their crew wear hats mimicking mardi gras party but somehow reminded us of the crews at Fridays.


anyways we ordered their special dish called Gumbo Seafood Jambalaya, its delicious and was surprised to find that they served it the way it was presented in their menu! what's funny is the crew always shout/chant "ahhhh seafood jambaalya, gumbo" whenever a customer order the dish... its like being at Cyma, difference is the crew there shout "opa!" instead whenever they serve a flaming dish. (wonder who copied who)

and this yummy rib steak

they gave us a free appetizer - fish and chips, fish aint that good (lots of breading) and the dip isnt my taste and had to ask for ketchup but hey its free anyways...love the fries though

had berry lemonade for drinks - taste really really good i could have drank the whole pitcher myself

after pigging out - simot sarap!

we are so full! food's great with big servings and the service is ok too! i highly recommend you try dining in at Gumbo, the prices are ok as well. we're about to get the bill but we spied this wicked chocolate cake from our neighbor table and knew we had to taste the sinful dessert!

boy i'm so glad we ordered the chocolate cake because it's soooo delicious! its warm and moist topped with a scoop of ice cream. (reminds me of my fave dessert, the colossal choco chip cookie at Old Spaghetti House) yum! yum!

we really need this fix coz they say chocolates can really lift up your mood or whatever, you see one of my girlfriends just broke-up with her bf of almost two years ....

well friday is my usual night out with my girlfriends, but due to work load and us scattered around the metro, we only get to see each other once a month now and if lucky twice a month. too bad my bespren was absent (she busy being a mother and attending some seminar somewhere south!) Anyways

great friends + delicious food = good times

Ganda ng bagong Rob Place, 'noh? Napapadalas tuloy ako minsan diyan. Siguro kung may Bubble Tea diyan, aba lalo na akong mapapapunta diyan.

Batang Rob Place ako kasi nu'ng High School ako e halos araw-araw ako diyan.

Teka, nakakita na naman ako ng ice cream. Natakam tuloy ako. *sabay takbo sa Ministop*

(Talk about my comeback. Hahah.)

Wow, the Philippines is the mall capital of Asia, if not the world! Glad to know the capitalism is alive and kicking :D That chocolate cake looked really good!
