It was a meet-up with my travel buddy, who just went home from a short stint abroad. Though we initially planned to try the buffet restaurant there, I decided against it as I had too much food during the holidays, so we went to The Clubhouse instead. :P
Finding this resto was a bit of a challenge, as we had to walk around outside Robinson's Magnolia to spot it. What we didn't know was they also have a door inside the mall.
I shared a pasta dish with my friend, the Four Cheese Lasagna (Php 235).
|Four Cheese Lasagna|
Good for two people, the pasta swims in a cheesy sauce that it is best to wipe off the plate with the bread. Love it!
My friend ordered a simple Tuna Rice Bowl (Php 185) while I got the Benny's Classic (Php 315, double).

The Tuyo Rice Bowl is garlic fried rice, tuyo, olives, mushrooms, and capers. Judging on how quick my friend finished it, I believe it was delicious.
What I would go back for is Benny's Classic. Served with fries and salad on the side, the hollandaise sauce has this creamy and thick texture, combining well with the poached eggs, ham and English muffin. This breakfast staple is so heavenly!
For drinks, we shared a carafe of Lemon Iced Tea (Php 160), which is more reasonable than ordering per glass.
There weren't many dessert choices during our visit so we decided to skip it.
More than anything, I have been always a fan of comfort food and The Clubhouse is one of those places that I will go to should I have a craving for it. The resto has a vast menu that it would take me a lot of visits to try everything. The ambiance is quite relaxing, and the service is excellent. I can't wait to have their Benny's Classic again.
