We decided to try out this place called Gumbo - A Taste of New Orleans, located in Midtown Wing, Robinson's Place Ermita. It looked like a really nice place, and we were not disappointed. Far from it. :)
View from our king-couch. We were pretty lucky to be seated in these huge, comfy seats. :D
The cool fans.
The food! :D
Appetizer: Baguette with Honey and Garlic
Entree: Buffalo Wings
Gayle's: Prawn Kebab with Corn-on-cob
Mine: New Orleans' Seafood Gumbo
I have to say, the food is fantastic! I never would have thought bread would taste good with honey and garlic, but darn. The wings were very average, I thought, and we didn't finish them (they were complimentary anyway LOL).
Gayle's food was delicious. She had these prawns skewered on top of her rice, and they looked so tempting! The corn was really buttery too. She doesn't gain weight like I do anyway, so it was cool. LOL. I had the house specialty, a Gumbo. I've never eaten Gumbo before so I didn't know what to expect. Turns out it's a seafood stew. REALLY delicious. As in, REALLY delicious. As in.. Well you get the idea. It was also spicy, just the way I like my food. :D
The servings in Gumbo are huge.
Even by Manila standards, they are well-worth the money you pay for them (food is very expensive here). This place offers good dining for the price of just about 2 very average meals in an average eating place. When I say 'good dining', I mean it. The service is really good! Quick, and the staff are very amiable. :) The place also looks very fancy, a place you'd expect to shell out serious moolah to eat in, but it's not quite the case. :)
Will definitely go to Gumbo again sometime. :)
We hearts the king-couch. <3
