Note: This restaurant is already closed.
Much as I dislike it, I have to look for a restaurant within my friend's budget limit. I'm a bit lenient when it comes to a food budget, that's why "budget eating" isn't one of my specialties (will work on it, I promise!). Then suddenly, Eat and Go comes to mind.
Eat and Go is one of the many restaurants at The Atrium at SM Megamall, I would always remember seeing their promos but haven't tried it. One of the staff offered their Executive Meal for Two deal for Php 399, which we tried.
The place looks like your cozy cafeteria. We opted to sit somewhere near the wall where delicious food photos were displayed, much to my hungry tummy's annoyance.
With Executive Meal for Two, you may choose two entrees originally worth Php 195 each, one salad and two bottomless iced tea or lemonade.
For the salad, you may choose Waldorf, Chef Salad, or Seafood Salad. We chose Chef Salad (originally worth Php 165)
For the main entrees, my friend ordered Chicken Saltimbocca with pasta and rice while I ordered Roasted Chicken with corn and carrots and rice.
Chicken Saltimbocca is similar to chicken cordon bleu with saltimbocca sauce while Roasted Chicken is your traditional oven-baked bone-in chicken. The dishes arrived a bit late, which I can't understand since most of their dishes are pre-cooked.
My friend and I got the unlimited iced tea, which was too sweet for me (and tastes like berry, which I don't really like). Despite the delay in serving the main entrees, the servers were quick in refilling our iced tea and giving me salt (since I found the corn and carrots a bit bland for my taste).
Guess what? Our dinner's within my friend's budget. I have a future with budgeting after all.
Eat and Go offers comfort food at affordable prices. The service is quite average since the main entrees took a bit long to be served. The food wasn't quite impressive, I think they need to improve on this.
Oh, I'm not sure if they serve dessert, do they?
