When I was invited to dine at FlapJacks because of the FlapJacks' Back...Better...Best! menu, I immediately said "yes"! What's not to like? I looked back on my first FlapJacks experience which was 3 years ago! Imagine, 3 long years! Thanks to my "Food and Drinks" tag I was able to look back on the restaurants I've tried.
By smiling and clicking HERE, you'll see that I had a grand time at the FlapJacks Restaurant several years ago with my family. If you wonder why I haven't been back to this restaurant even when I sing nothing but praises for them? I try to dine as much restaurants I can because I want to try new dishes!
And the new menu of FlapJacks definitely makes it worth re-visiting!
Php145.00 (approx $3.40)
Creamy clam and vegetable soup
It is very difficult to appreciate creamy based soup as it usually tastes overwhelming when you're not even halfway there! With the FlapJacks' version of clam chowder, I had to say, this is the BEST Clam Chowder soup I've tried. They obviously used fresh clams that are chopped in medium size, not too big and not too small! The texture is just right mixed with various vegetables. I consider this a very healthy meal!
Php395.00 (approx $9.20)
A platter of traditional Buffalo Wings, Fried Calamari and Zesty Nachos
The Buffalo Wings are spicy and I can taste Tabasco sauce? (not sure if I'm right). I think my tongue is used to the taste of Chicken Charlie, Bon Chon etc... that's why I don't crave for this as much.
The calamari is perfectly cooked! Crunchy on the outside and it was soft and chewy inside.
The nachos? The name says zesty but the chips itself is light to taste, best partnered with sour cream and salsa!
Lemon Pepper Pan Seared White Fish
Php295.00 (approx $6.85)
Mildly seasoned white fish with fresh squeezed lemon and pepper,
pan fried in olive oil. Served with herb rice and chef's veggies.
I feel the dish is good but it lacks something, probably sauce? I'm a sauce eater! *lol* Fret no more, remember the Clam Chowder that I ordered? It actually works pairing it with this fish!!!! It actually tastes perfect!
Php265.00 (approx $6.16)
Grilled chicken strips, vegetables and
Mexican rice in soft tortilla wrap
I'm not a fan of anything with beans except, maybe..pork n' beans in can? *laughs* Good thing I raised my concern to the order taker and I was told I can request to remove the beans, which they did and I LOVE this Mexi-Burrita Wrap sans beans! The tortilla wrap is soft and easy to chew at the same time, the chicken strips are flavorful.
Closer look on the flavorful rice, chicken strips and vegetables
The Original Hashbrown Burger
Php350.00 (approx $8.30)
Mouthwatering pan seared all beef patty with fresh tomatoes and lettuce.
Topped with golden fried hashbrown & American cheese
Hashbrown, oh how I love thee! It actually tastes good to have a piece of hashbrown in between the melted cheese and beef pattie. I was told by the server that this was requested by a lot of customers when they took this out on the menu. So now, they put it back due to customers demand!
For the drinks, I've decided to be adventurous and tried the unthinkable (in my dictionary). I'm a fan of vegetables but there are certain vegetables I just can't put near my mouth! Celery! I hope you guys are proud of me! I mustered the courage to try....
Jack and the Beanstalk
Php125.00 (approx $3.00)
Combination of celery, apple and pineapple
Surpisingly, the tiny hint of taste of the celery complemented the taste of apples and pineapples! I even challenged the server that I'll give this back if I don't like it! Of course, they won!!! This drink is surprisingly good! With everything that I tasted above? Adding a bit of celery will burn "a tiny bit" of calories! (wishful thinking) :P
Of course, Mr. AMW had his favorite Coca cola!
I am very happy that after years, the restaurant still has one of the best service I've tried! Smiling servers, a manager that goes up to you and ask how you liked your meal (they did that even years ago). The restaurant was packed and ambiance was definitely a great place to hang out not only with friends, but with the family!
