Weekend Food Tripping at: Tender Bob's

Happy Sunday!
I had a super fruitful Saturday.  Spent wonderful time with my family plus my baby Pomeranian dogs.  They're not babies anymore but in my eyes, they'll always be! *aww*

My sister also visited mom's place so it was "almost" a whole family bonding but of course, I have a brother who's working in Shanghai but in our hearts, he's with us! *double awww* :P

Weekend food tripping time!  Are you hungry?  Yes?  Good!  Read on... *evil laugh* 

Frankly speaking, the first time I've dined at Tender Bob's was its branch at Greenhills, it was newly open then!  We walked out the restaurant feeling full but not as satisfied!  The food are okay but nothing worth remember!  I don't know why but since I started to blog about food, I am giving restaurants a second and third chance and I'm glad the second time is always sweeter!

Nacho Chips
Php220.00 (approx $5.23)
White tortilla chips, topped with ground beef, olives,
cheese, salsa, chives, mushroom and black beans
Not bad, I'm not a bean-eater so I can get away taking out the beans, but the rest of the ingredients are perfect match!

Php290.00 (approx $6.90)
Loaded with garlic, served spicy or mild
YUMMY!  My dad enjoyed this too, everyone liked this and I nearly went for second round!

Sizzling Salisbury Steak
Php205.00 (approx $4.88)
1/3 lb. burger drenched with mushroom gravy
and topped with fried egg.
This dish was actually served in a sizzling plate but I requested them to transfer in a "safer" plate for my dad to eat comfortably.  I also suggested to separate the gravy so my dad doesn't have to eat up all the cholesterol and fats! :)  I'm a good nurse aren't I?

US Beef Salpicao
Php360.00 (approx $8.57)
US Flat Iron steak aged in garlic and olive oil
No wonder, this obviously was soaked in a good amount of garlic and olive oil as I can taste the flavorful aroma of the beef with hint of garlic and the meat was very succulent and easy to chew!  Personal favorite! 

  Ultimate US Steak Sandwich
Php315.00 (approx $7.35)
US Flat Iron strips with caramelized onions
and sauteed mushrooms.
You really can't go wrong with a sandwich that includes caramelized onions!  Onions turn into this sweet garnish that won't leave you bad breathe!  The Ultimate US Steak Sandwich is THE ultimate sandwich to try when you visit the place! 

Sea Burger
Php175.00 (approx $4.00)
Their very own fish patty.  Their specialty
My sister is quite conscious with what she eats and she has chosen a Sea Burger (in which I thought is one super healthy burger LOL).  The serving is HUGE and she has to cut it in half and leave the rest for take out.

Grilled Salmon with Tropical Salsa
Php395.00 (approx $9.40)
6oz. Salmon fillet grilled medium with flavorful salsa.
Now you got this right, this is the more healthy alternative when you plan to be health conscious and still dine outside!  My mom ordered this and she told me the Salmon was really fresh to taste.

I usually go for water when I dine out as I'm not a fan of carbonated drinks!  Thanks to the availability of various fruit shakes, I was able to order my favorite Ripe Mango Drink.

The restaurant was packed with customers coming in and out!  I am liking the good service and the wonderful ambiance perfect for hangout!  Parking space is okay as you can just walk from Greenbelt parking area to the restaurant.  My mom checked the washroom on the second floor but nearly got stuck!  I hope they fix the lock ASAP or someone may scream soon!
