The Best Food Picks at Robinson's Magnolia

Robinson's Magnolia is one of my favorite places to go to because of its nice atmosphere and awesome food choices.  When I received an invitation for a food tour at the restaurants here, I did not hesitate to confirm.  In this foodie tour, RJ Ledesma played the Pied Piper of Magnolia and food bloggers played the mice.  He did not have to play any music because the sound of good food was already music to my ears.

We made several stops that started in the food court and ended in the Magnolia Ice Cream house which was ironic since it was what was originally here before the mall took over.  In fact, Robinson's is only at the early stages of a plan that will make this the Magnolia Town Center that consists of high rise residential buildings and a commercial complex.  A lot of establishments are within reach including schools like Xavier School, La Salle Greenhills and Immaculate Conception Academy and the LRT Line 2.  

It is going to be a dream living in the Magnolia Residences as amenities include a swimming pool, jogging path, table tennis room and a private theater.  Visit their showroom now at Level 1, East Lane, Robinson's Galleria and take a look at what could be your future.

Here are the food picks that we got to taste throughout the night:



Zigla!





It won't be a matter of time before I become a vegetarian even though that is always getting delayed.  When that does happen, one of the places I will certainly frequent is Zigla!.   We were given a taste of their Tuna and Cheese Sandwich which is composed of high fiber whole wheat loaf, tuna, onions, celery and egg pimiento spread.  I took one bite of the sandwich and I knew right away that I will be coming back to Zigla! often in the near future.



House of Silvanas





We were treated to some delicious silvanas thanks to the House of Silvanas.  They offer different flavors such as ube, mango, pandan and strawberry.  They certainly came a long way from becoming a home based business.  I was not a Silvanas fan before but now I'm always craving for it thanks to the silvanas from the House of Silvanas.



Pad Thai and more!





Coming from the same team that brought you Thai Bistro and Silk Road, the specialty of Pad Thai and more! is Pad Thai (duh).  I already got to sample their pad thai when I ate at Thai Bistro and Silk Road before so I was really excited when I found out they were one of the places we were going to visit in this food tour.  When I got a plate of their Pad Thai, I was able to finish one whole plate while other bloggers shared one plate.  I guess they were saving their appetite but I threw that option out of the window for this one.



Villa del Conte






Who would have ever thought that we would sample chocolates in the middle of the food tour?  The chocolates at Villa Del Conte were absolutely tasty.  I understand why chocolate lovers would come up in groves just for their chocolates.  

 

The Clubhouse










The Clubhouse is one of the restaurants I have been wanting to try for a long time and my wish finally came true thanks to this food tour.  They have a homey ambiance and nice comfort food for all ages.  My cravings were certainly satisfied with the food they served which were Tuyo Rice Bowl, Vigan Longganisa Hash, Hungarian Sausage and Eggs and the Truffle Mushroom Scramble.  I loved everything here and there was nothing to dislike.  I can't wait to come back and celebrate a special occasion here.



Gaucho






 
I always pass by Gaucho and was always curious as to what was inside it due to the amazing interiors.  Wow, now I know what I was missing as I saw all those delightful meaty dishes.  I knew this was the restaurant that will give me a full appetite when the night is over.  They served Cordero Entero a la Cruz (Australian lamb), Cochino a la Cruz (Suckling pig), Falda a la Cruz (US beef shortplate) and El Pozo de Fuego (slow roasted from the fire pit).  As a meat lover, all the dishes left me speechless and my tummy told me that it was more than satisfied.



Magnolia Ice Cream Flavor House











.
The last stop was none other than the Magnolia Ice Cream Flavor House.  There was barely any space left in my stomach for dessert.  Not only do they have ice cream but they also have sandwiches and pasta choices.  We were given lots of ice cream and I loved all of them.  There is no doubt in my mind their ice cream is one of the classic Filipino favorites.
