My SM Mega Food Hall Favorites



An upscale food court is what I have wanted to see in Manila like the Paragon Food Hall in Bangkok. Luckily, the Mega Food Hall, located at the SM Mega Fashion Hall opened a few months ago with food choices ranging from different cuisines for as affordable as Php 200. 

I like that this particular spot is not so crowded even during peak hours. Also, almost (if not all) stalls use coaster pagers so can sit anywhere while you wait for your food to be prepared. 



Mega Food Hall has been my favorite dinner spot lately and I'd love to share with you the dishes I have tried and recommend for you to try when you visit the food hall. 

1. Nav Modern Thai Cuisine

This Thai resto located in Kapitolyo finally branched out to a food court scale in Mega Food Hall. They offer Thai curry dishes, noodle and soup dishes. I particularly like the mix-and-match meals where you can choose your appetizer, meat dish and rice. 

Beef Brisket, Thai Chicken Fried Rice, Son-in-Law Eggs
Chicken Pandan, Thai Shrimp Fried Rice, Son-in-Law Eggs


My recommended combos are Beef Brisket with Thai Chicken Fried Rice and Son-in Law Eggs (Php 220) and Chicken Pandan with Thai Shrimp Fried Rice and Son-in-Law Eggs (Php 180). Much as I love Pad Thai, I would not recommend it as it seems a hit-or-miss for Nav. 

2. Tex-Mex

Grande Burger

A Mexican food stall, Tex-Mex offers Latin American fares at really affordable prices. Recommended items are the Grande Burger (Php 199) and the Mex-Pollo (Php 199).

Mex-Pollo

Mex-Pollo is 3 pieces of Latin style chicken served with Mexican rice, corn on cob with chimichurri sauce and salsa. It can be a good alternative if Senor Pollo is too far for Latin chicken cravings. The servings are good enough for one hungry individual *ehem*

Try the Chicken Taco Salad as well. 

3. Miguelito's

The only Filipino stall in the Mega Food Hall, I have tried it once when I craved for a La Paz Batchoy (Php 150).

La Paz Batchoy

The serving is good enough for 2 persons, the dish was well-executed and the taste didn't disappoint. I look forward to trying their other dishes soon. 

4. Yakitori One



For light dinners, I would recommend Yakitori One, one of the popular stalls in the hall. As I love chicken, I usually have the Set Meal 1, 2 pcs Chicken Thigh (Php 168) or the Chicken Karaage, Chicken Thigh and Chicken Skin (Php 188). 



5. Frankie's New York Style Buffalo Wings

City Golf's popular wings joint, Frankie's, also opened a stall in Mega Food Hall. The food court version has a limited menu, but more than enough to satisfy your wings cravings. 

Honey Mustard Wings

Last time I dined in Frankie's, my friend and I shared a half dozen of Honey Mustard Wings (Php 188) while my friend had a BBQ Chicken Burger (Php 180). I would love to grab Nagoya Tebasaki and Cheesy Bacon Wings again. 

6. Sweetea's by da.u.de

 


For freshly-brewed tea blends, there's Sweetea's by da.u.de. I admit that I'm not a huge tea fan but I love trying out new drinks every time. The drinks are prepared as you order hence the 5-7 minutes wait time. 

I tried the Mango-Nilla (Php 120/130) while my friend had the Almond (Php 110/120). The mild sweetness will surprise your tastebuds if you are used to having sugary drinks, but I love it that Sweetea's emphasize that flavor of the tea leaves than confusing it with too much sugar. 

Other stalls in Mega Food Hall are Dojo Dairy, Waffo's, Chubby's Rib Shack and SP Steak & Paella. I can't wait to try Halal Guys when it opens. ;)

  4. Didn't know that this place existed! It seems that a more upscale buffet (not your usual food court choices) is getting famous around the malls here in the Metro. I really wanted to try the Nav & Tex Mex, it super duper looks good in the picture! Hehe

Mango Bravo by Conti's

Mother dear celebrated her birthday last month, and as I always do, I bought her a birthday cake. Last year, I got her Grandma's Chocolate Cake from Purple Oven, this time it's Mango Bravo by Conti's.
One of Conti's bestselling cakes, Mango Bravo is available in two sizes: Mini (Php 665) and Regular (Php 1195).
Thinking about the amount of food that will be stored over the weekend, I bought the Mini. 


Mango Bravo is a wafer-based cake with cream, topped with slices of ripe mangoes, with choco syrup and cashew nuts. Oh, this cake needs to be frozen, btw (super thanks to my friend Mike for taking me and my cake home safely. hehe.)

Chocolat: Deep Dark Chocolate Cakes

I've always been curious about Chocolat eversince a friend told me it's really good. PLUS it was included in Spot.ph's Top Ten Chocolate Cakes in Manila so I suggested that my friends and I meet up at this hidden cake store in Katipunan area.

Chocolat offers signature chocolate cakes and other specialty cakes. The place is a small shop that could only sit 10 persons. Customers usually drop by to buy cakes for takeaway.

Pimples No More with AcneCare #MayPagAsaPa

Acne is one of the most common skin problems among teenagers. Also, acne can affect adults. 
What causes acne? According to MayoClinic, the four main factors that cause acne are oil production, dead skin cells, clogged pores and bacteria. Hormones, certain medications, diet and stress are also huge contributors that can trigger acne. 
Here are the basic prevention tips you can do to avoid acne:
1. Use less oil-based skin products. 
Using oil-based sunscreen, cosmetics, and other skin care products makes you more prone to acne.
2. Watch what touches your face.
Avoid resting your hands and other objects (like your phone screen) to your face. 
3. Don't prick your pimples
Just don't. 
Here comes a more effective solution to prevent acne: Acne Care Beauty Soap.
