Lunch at MESA

My mom is here in the Philippines for vacation so we usually have a family lunch every weekend. She suggested “MESA” for our lunch. It’s been years since the last time we ate here, we have tried the SM Southmall and SM North EDSA branches and so far we had a good experience. 

It took us a long time to browse the menu because we were thinking if we will order from the MESALO-SALO Menu, Boodle Menu, or Sampler menu but we ended up ordering our own meal since iba-iba gusto namin ulam. It was funny because it took me a long time to check their menu but I still chose Inihaw Sampler, yun din yung mga past orders ko.

Since it was not our first time eating at MESA restaurant, we thought that they will serve our order in 20-30 minutes, but 40 minutes had passed, wala pa rin so we need to follow up twice pa. So our experience with SM Grand was not pleasant because it took them an hour just to serve our meals. Nagutom na kami kakahintay, we were them before 11AM and 12NN na bago pa kami nakakain. I don’t know why it took them so long to serve the food and when we ate the Inihaw Sampler, hindi naman mainit.

Inihaw Sampler includes grilled chicken leg quarter, pork belly, scallops meat, river shrimp, squid, pork BBQ and a slice of Bangus belly basted with sweet soya glaze topped with spring onion.

The food is good naman kaso mabagal lang ang service, though maayos naman ang mga waitstaff nila. We are group of 11 people and we ordered the following, pero ang nakain ko lang yung Inihaw Sampler, Kare-Kare and Sinigang na Boneless Bangus. (kung ano yung malapit sa akin) And dahil sa gutom na kami, yung Inihaw Sampler lang ang nakunan ko ng picture.
