I was in Mall of Asia yesterday due to their 3-day Sale (here’s their schedule of SM 3day sales btw) and it was already 3pm when I got out of the department store with new clothing for me. However, at that time, I was also very hungry because due to my rush to get enjoy the first day of the sale I have not eaten anything for the day. I quickly went to the food court and glanced through the different menus and decided to eat at Pinoy Toppings.
Pinoy toppings’ dishes is similar to what you can see in tapsilogans here and there although they have other dishes that tapsilogans don’t have. Think of it as an upgraded tapsilog in terms of servings and price. Most of their meals are in the range of PHP 80 and they already include a big serving of rice, soup and 1 small piece of fried banana.
Since I was hungry, I ordered their promo or combo that has two viands.
Pinoy Toppings Combo Meal – PHP 130.00
Phote Notes: I took two shots. One with flash and one without flash. Although it is advised not to use flash on food pictures, I usually use flash especially on dark colored food such as this burger steak and BBQ. What I do is to distance myself from the food and then just zoom in (ehem, I love ZS3’s zoom yeah).
After ordering, I sat on a four-seat table where there’s already somebody eating. I was a bit shy on taking pictures while that person was eating but it is for the sake of the food blog so go go go (lol, other people would say, kebs). Now let’s talk about the food.
I will start with the egg and I think they forgot to put salt on it. The egg has no taste even if I ate the yellow part already! The burger steak was so-so while the BBQ tasted good (this was the redeeming factor for this meal else I would have regretted my order). It already had a good serving of rice but since I was very hungry, I was able to eat all the rice with lots of viand left but overall, it was so-so. To those who like eating lots of rice in their meals, this would be a good choice because of their big rice servings.
Also, just to warn, do not mix their soup to your rice (I usually do this) because the soup tastes like water and I believe that helped in making my meal go bad because I feel like the flavors have been washed already by the soup. What kind of soup was that anyway, so learn from me and just ignore their soup.
Till next time,
