Weekend Food Tripping at: Orchard Road Megamall

You think I'm in Singapore?  I wish! 

A restaurant here in Manila was named after the famous shopping, entertainment and food road in Singapore called Orchard Road.  The restaurant offers Singaporean dishes most Singapore travelers missed after a trip!

What's interesting with the restaurant is that they showcase different dishes and you can visibly see them cook while you choose your meal!

The place is quite huge and there's a lot of tables and chairs for friends, families and of course sweethearts! 

Sweet and Sour Pork, Fried Egg and Rice
Php150.00 (approx $3.26)

As simple as stated, sweet and sour pork with rice included is a sunny side up fried egg (which we requested).  Nothing spectacular.  Just like regular sweet and sour pork we tried!

Char Kway Teow
Php150.00 (approx $3.26)

Not bad!  I actually like noodles a lot and this one came in with the nice texture and mix of peanut, meat and vegetables.

I haven't tried authentic Singaporean dishes, but I am confident that I know what's good and what's bad for my taste buds!  I may be deaf at times but nothing can cheat my taste buds.  I haven't tried a lot of dishes from Orchard Road restaurant but I can say, the food they offer are quite ordinary and you can even do most of them at home.  They are a nice, quick restaurant for hungry shoppers inside the mall, but if you're looking for authentic Singaporean dishes, there are a lot of options out there.

Here's a tip for first time Orchard Road customers. (Menu photo courtesy of

1. Get a slip available in the restaurant that looks like the photos below.
2. Walk around the open kitchen and note down the dishes you would like to order
3. Mark your order slip
4. Give your order slip to the cashier for payment
5. A number will be given to you and you go around choose your best table.
6. Food will be served and enjoy!
