Secret Recipe

Note: This restaurant is already closed.

My friend and I always end up eating pasta whenever we get hungry. During one of those days, we felt hopeless in choosing someplace new to eat and ended up at Secret Recipe.

Secret Recipe is an international cafe chain across 9 countries including Singapore, China, Thailand, Australia and Philippines. It offers comfort food like pasta, Asian specialties and cakes.

I got myself Beef Lasagna (Php 170).

Beef Lasagna

Lasagna is the traditional baked minced beef with special tomato sauce topped with cheese, served with homemade bun. The lasagna looked..microwaved. It looks disappointing and it tastes average.

My friend got Spaghetti Meatballs (Php 225).

Spaghetti Meatballs

My friend was supposed to order Spaghetti Bolognese (Php 185) but I persuaded him to order the one with meatballs, so he did. Same as the lasagna, it was average.

We were supposed to get dessert but cancelled it since we were in a bit of a hurry.

Maybe we should have just gotten dessert instead of pasta.

Overall, Secret Recipe has a nice ambiance but being an international chain, I expected that it will deliver at least satisfactory dishes. Thinking about the pasta dishes we ordered, I think we should have gone to Greenwich instead.

However, I will go back to try the cheesecakes, cream cakes, and pies.

  1. ay nakakadisappoint nga ... pass na ako dito next time haha

  2. Hi kay! Onga eh. nadisappoint talaga ako.

  3. Whenever I hear about Secret Recipe, desserts na agad pumapasok sa isip ko.. I've read tons of positive reviews about their cakes. I haven't personally tried them though. I also thought na since their cakes are good, baka their other dishes are good din. Pero baka pass nalang muna ako sa pasta nila, but will definitely try their cakes soon.. :)

  4. Hi Sumi! We were supposed to order cakes but cancelled it because we were in a bit of a hurry. :)

  5. their pasta was forgetable but a friend loves their dinner rolls which I find okay. I enjoyed their cakes that's why when I'm at Megamall and craving for some desserts, I go here. Would recommend their Pecan Butterscotch.

  6. Hi madie! I agree with the dinner rolls. :) Thanks for the recommendation! I have to try the cakes soon. :)

  7. Hello Mich! Just stumbled upon this old post. Have they improved their dishes by now? Kasi, my mom and I were planning to eat in this restaurant (in RP Ermita). But, parang may vibes nga siya na food won't be that great. Haha! :)
