I do food reviews at OpenRice and they gave back to their loyal food 'reviewers' by giving cool stuff and one of those includes a gift certificate at any Raintree restos.
Iwas able to maximize that GC when I gave a birthday treat to my brother and I decided to go to Momo because it was nearest to us compared to the other Raintree restaurants. And also, I have dined here already before so I know that they would not disappoint. In this case, I settled for safety rather than being adventurous. Hehe.
BBQ RIBLETS - P450. Ooooohhhh...It' so tender that it falls off the bone. I loved it. We were all hungry and upon serving of this dish, we dug in right away. And I had one of those fat onion rings because they're all a favorite of mine.
OLD FASHIONED BEER BATTERED FISH AND CHIPS - P395. The batter was crispy and the fish meat was cooked just right. Just a drop of lemon and the flavor shifted, perfect!
GRANDMA'S MEATLOAF - P425. A typical western comfort food. Similar to our embutido which is a comfort food to us Pinoys too. Not that I have any bad thing to say. Haha! I liked it actually. Especially sprinkling it with the special sauce that came with it.
NORWEGIAN SALMON - P425. Now, this I really like! So does my dad. If I remember correctly, this was the first to go empty amongst all dishes. Wiped out, literally. It was cooked perfectly. Even the veggie side dish was also delish!
COOKIE DOUGH CHEESECAKE - My brother has a sweet tooth so he wanted to have his dessert and this was his choice. It was good, for him, but for me,it was just ok. I'm picky when it comes to cheesecakes.
Happy Bday to my brother! :)
My second dining experience here was still very much worth it. We all had a great time and I was able to use my GC too before it expired! Whew! The staff were very diligent in calling me up..first to confirm my reservation that morning then second, was to ask if we were still coming, we were more than an hour late because, of course, of the traffic. But despite that, they still saved the table that I specifically requested from them. Pretty much a night to remember. :)
Another one of those girls night outs that I absolutely look forward to. My friends and I were supposed to meet by around 7pm at Eastwood City, but lo and behold, because of the heavy traffic and the far distance from Makati, I arrived at quarter to 9pm. They were so hungry, so was I. So we decided to have dinner somewhere nice and filling.
So we landed at Heaven and Eggs. They wanted rice, I wanted a cozy place so we can make chika.
MANILA SPARERIBS 1965 - P295. What a revelation! This was Maricar's order but of course, I had to taste it. The bits of salad, the yummy rice plus the flavorful ribs that is so tender and delicious made it a very delightful dish.
SALT N' PEPPER PORK RIBS - P255. This was supposed to be my order but my friend, Joy, beat me to it. But still, I came out a winner because she gave me some of them. I like it even if the spiciness coming from the crushed red chilis was overpowering, for her, so I benefitted from that incident. Simplicity is still best.
BREAKFAST CHICKEN TERIYAKI - P260. Finally came to a choice. A sure winner, that I found out after having my first spoonful. I find the flavor mild but flavorful, the vegetables still crunchy and my egg quite ordinary, haha! It said on the menu japanese something egg but it just tasted..regular. But I still loved it. I shared my dish with my 2 friends as well.
I find the prices too pricey except for my friend's ribs dish but what I liked is that, since you're already paying a huge amount, they give it back to you by serving a generous plate which will really fill you up quite happily. That for me is very important.
Also, I really liked our waitress because she was so nice and accommodating and always smiling. She heeded to our requests and served and refilled our water glasses proactively. We left a nice tip because she deserved it.
