Todd English Food Hall: From New York to Manila (SM Aura)

September 25, 2015 Philippines

Todd English Food Hall has been hyped when it arrived.  My siblings were one of the many eager beavers who lined up just to try it but not me... I'm once again the last with the bandwagon.

I thought the big signage with clear glass window was the entrance... Only to find out from my little sisters that it was the exit.

The real entrance is located at the side where waiting seats are placed.  Everyone is listening attentively as their name will only be called thrice before moving on to the next.  There were no microphones nor do they text so I suggest that you patiently stay put of you'll miss your turn like we did.  Boo! :(

By the time we were relisted, called and ushers to our table, we were all so hungry that we just ordered everything our server suggested.

While waiting for our orders, I can't help but observe how cool and modern the interiors were.

There's a raw area by the side which many don't seem to notice.  Although it's a food hall, this one seems more formal.  Everyone was seated and no one bothers getting off their seat to notice the surroundings.

This seemed famous based on the online photos.

We forgot to try their macarons...

We loved the playfulness they did with the colorful pasta.

I've never gone crazy for a spaghetti.... that is before I've tried the Brooklyn Style Meatball Spaghetti.


The Grill

T.E Slider (390 php)
The T.E Slider may look simple but it's the X factor because of its tasty beef pattie.


Mainss

T.E Half Chicken (320 php)
The T.E Half Chicken is hands down the best among all our orders!  Don't miss this!

T.E Half Pork Chop (440 php)
The T.E Half Pork Chop is a 48-hou brined pork chop.  It was pretty good.  It was tender and succulent.

T.E Two Way Duck (650 php)
The T.E Two Way Duck was good enough for me.  But, the family found some parts too rubberyYou could skip this as the T.E Half Chicken is more worth it.

Salads

Spinach Salad (290 php)
Looking for something healthy and delicious?  Well, the Spinach Salad is almost healthy with the spinach, tomatoes, cranberry, peach, fried onion save for the bacon balsamic dressing - but trust me this is worth the guilt.


Flatbread

Cheese Crispy Eggplant (460 php)
The Cheese Crispy Eggplant didn't look visually appealing for me.  But, this is so good that it made me appreciate flat breads even more.


Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
Todd English Food Hall has lived up to my high expectations.  Pricing perhaps is New York standards but worth the experience.
