Weekend Food Trip at: Krazy Garlik (Part 2)

Happy Sunday AMW readers!  How are you today?  Are you well rested and ready to take the world for the week to come?

If you're as lazy as me, well, there's always food to reach out to!  Shall we officially call this day "Pig Out" day?  Please, let's make it official!  *cyber blood contact* :P

During our family bonding at Crown Regency Makati, I've decided to have a birthday lunch with my family while my brother is still here for vacation, since Greenbelt 5 is the way to go, I've decided to take them at Krazy Garlik as I've dined here once and so far, food was great!

Beef Salpicao
Php395.00 (approx $9.87)
Sauteed beef tenderloin with garlic, 
black olives, pimientos and olive oil
This was the free appetizer I got because of my Bistro Card and the free Appetizer coupon.  I'm glad I chose this as this tastes really good!  The beef is very tender and juicy, looks very spicy but it isn't as spicy as it looks!  I like the version of Krazy Garlik better than the ones we had at Italianni's.

Amazing Krazy Garlik Salad
regular Php275.00 (approx $6.87)
to share Php475.00  (approx $11.87)
A refreshing Asian salad mix with cucumber, bell peppers, 
onions and oriental chicken strips toosed in sesame lime dresing.  
Topped with fried wanton and peanut sauce.

Super yummy salad that can rule the salad world!  I love the texture of various vegetables with fried wanton giving it an extra crisp on the overall dish!
Shrimp Maramonte
Php450.00 (approx $11.25)
Al dente spaghetti paste sauteed in pesto sauce,
 fresh baby clams and shrimps
Because I'm staying away from seafood, I didn't give this a taste but according to my brother, this tastes okay.  Nothing spectacular but it wasn't bad!

Mushroom Matsuri
Php350.00 (approx $8.75)
Oyster, shiitake and button mushrooms
 sauteed in our homemade teriyaki sauce
I don't know why I missed this dish on the menu!  My brother-in-law has a good eye for good food!  Upon serving, I want this dish myself!  I love dishes with all sorts and kinds of mushrooms!  This dish is perfect with a hot cup of rice!  Or 2 cups?

Sweet 16 Chicken
Php495.00 (approx $12.37)
Crispy chicken fillet, fresh pineapple, capsicum in sweet and tangy sauce
 topped with crispy noodles and served with salted fish fried rice
May not look appetizing on physical appearance but my mom exclaimed the sweet and sour chicken is tender and very flavorful!  I'm glad there is only a minimal amount of fat!

Honey Fried Chicken
Php395.00 (approx $9.87)
A family favorite, half-fried chicken with top grade honey and fried garlic
My dad ordered this chicken dish and I ordered mashed potatoes separately as I know he's a fan of it!  Out of all the dishes we tried at Krazy Garlik, this was a major fail as the chicken doesn't have much flavor, as soon as you get into the meat, it tastes really bland and an extra gravy could help!  

As for the mashed potatoes, it came off quite dry and there wasn't any gravy or sauce that comes with the dish too!  Sorry dad!  At least you enjoyed our company *winks*

Barbi BBQ
Php245.00 (approx $6.12)
My nephew's kiddie meal!  This is a wonderful variety to what kids would ask for!  Spaghetti, barbecue and mojos, my nephew was happy and full!

BBQ Garlic Chicken
Php450.00 (approx $11.25)
Hot-off-the-grill chicken fillet with mozzarella, asiago cheese, 
onions, peppers, cilantro and garlic flakes in a special hickory barbecue sauce
Since Mr. AMW and I were quite full from the hotel's breakfast, we've decided to go for pizza and share it with the rest of the table!  The pizza was baked fresh and I like the flavorful kick of BBQ sauce, the taste of BBQ sauce could get a bit overwhelming on your second slice!  So note to readers:  not for the faint heart, order this if you are into BBQ sauce!

And since it was my birthday month, I was given a nice scoop of my favorite Vanilla Ice Cream! :)

If you look back on my first Krazy Garlik experience (read post HERE), I wasn't that impressed with their service and after almost a year, I've decided to see if there's any improvement.  Unfortunately, their service is still slow (really slow)!  I know the fact that I should consider the number of customers who were dining in but that day, it wasn't that full and I realized the servers aren't that organized!  We have to follow up on our drinks several times and we even had our food ready before our drinks!  

I really love to dine in again at Krazy Garlik but the slow service is putting me and other diners off!  

Have you dined in at Krazy Garlik? 
Did you have the same "slow service" experience we had?
