This is actually a first in my blog.
I am ranting.. On restaurants I’ve tried last night and just this noon time.
TGI Friday’s Trinoma
Last night, my Panget and I decided to eat at Friday’s Trinoma. We wanted to use the mobile GC that we got through this site. Seeing that my favorite Mushroom Chicken Mushroom was back in the menu – I ordered it immediately! But when it was served – the look of it was, well – it wasn’t the Mushroom Chicken Mushroom I remembered. The presentation was so off! The chicken looked like it just came ouyt of the microwave, the fries were kinda cold, and the mushrooms – well, they were about 6-7 pieces only. It actually turned me off. I mean, why bring back a pretty popular dish and not make it the same? I was so diappointed that I sent an SMS to . The format was this:
So I sent the message following the exact format. I got two replies, asking me to use the correct format. I learned that the correct format was SHARE_Name/FRIDAYS/FEEDBACK
I mean, come on! How can people send you their feedbacks if the format given us is wrong! I just tried leaving a feedback on their site – I keep getting error messages! WTF?! (sorry!)
La Nuovo, San Antonio Arcade
Mom and my brother said that this place served good Italian food. So we tried it just this noon time coming from Manila Memorial Park in Sucat. When we entered, my mom asked the server what the set menu for the day was. He said it was ‘Bill’, my mom asked again, he replied ‘Bill’. Thinking that I was becoming a little deaf, I asked him again – he said ‘Bill’. So I asked again in Tagalog ‘Anong bill? Ano yun‘. To my shock he siad ‘Bill, a small cow’ it then registered in my head that he was referring to veal! Hahaha… I was kind of excited to order since my mom and twin said the resto was good, but when I saw the prices on the menu – I was shocked! I’ve never seen a pasta dish priced at Php470.00 and above! I honestly did not know what to order, so my twin took charge and just ordered 1 pizza and a pasta platter for us to share. Our orders arrived quite late, good thing we were given 2 baskets of bread with pate and tomatoes. When I asked the server for another helping – well, the server forgot! Because it never came.. I was excited to see the Pizza, but by the look of my twin’s face – he was sort of bewildered – he thought the pizza would look like something else. When the pasta arrived, it looked really really yummy! There were 3 kinds on the platter – olive oil based vongole, red seafood, and creamy carbonara (I think!). When I sampled the vongole, it was great – the noodles were tasty, but the clams were so tiny! Hahaha.. The seafood with tomato was the worst for me, it tasted like medicine! But my brother loved it. The carbonarra was too creamy, but hey – my mom liked it!
All in all, the experience was quite alright – until I saw the bill! For the 2 dishes we ordered we were billed a freaking Php1,395.00!! Oh my gosh! I mean, it would be okay it the food tasted fabulous! But it wasn’t. I was so disappointed, I mean – really. Really really really disappointed. I mean, to price your dishes high – I expect that somehow, the flavor of the dish will justify the price – but it didn’t. Huhu..
I was so disappointed.
That’s 2 misses in 2 attempts this week. Bad statistic..
