Back at Mr. Jones

It was an exciting lunch as I was back at my favorite American diner ... Mr. Jones!

Just a month ago, I first tried Mr. Jones with the Yummy team and now I'm back for a food tasting in preparation for an exciting event for work!

Thanks to Raintree Restaurant's super accommodating and friendly Marketing Manager, Belle; I found myself enjoying a wide array of Mr Jones' specialties earlier was these will be served to our special guests in a couple of weeks.

Here's what we had for lunch...

We've tried The Threeesome during our first visit to Mr. Jones, I love the Egg Salad with Truffle Oil and Black Caviar! Each bite is h-e-a-v-e-n-l-y. The other two are the Prawn Coleslaw and the Macaroni Salad. Must enjoy these yummy salad together with their delicious butter toast.

Make a wild guess how many milkshake we all had this afternoon. :) One? nah.. Two? Nope! Threeee? Maybe... Four? CORRECT!! Yep! We all had a taste of four of their best-selling milkshakes and we're all glad we did! My favorite was the Blueberry Granola Yogurt as well as the Black and White.

Moving on to our main dishes. We got another favorite -- remember Elaine's Melted "Old Bay" Crab and Dory Thermidor (Php. 375)? We had this again today and I was able to fully appreciate the freshness of the Dory as well as the yummy addition of the crab meat! Yum! I wanted to dig into the rice but I remembered what our next dish was that I stopped myself just in time for the...

U.S. Beef Ribcap Tapa & Garlic Overload (Php. 295). I loved it the first time and I'm loving it forever! There's more lean meat this time and the tapa sauce was just bursting with flavor. My boss D suggested that we add a little orange juice on the tapa as it "gives a new dimension". I tried it and he's right, I love the sweet-sour surprise that I get after biting into the salty tapa.

After the tapa, came the Wicked Truffled Mac and Cheese (Php. 375). Unlike the previous Mac and Cheese that I had during my first visit, this one was better. It has more cheese sauce and good thing, it wasn't badly burned like before. I can also taste and smell the truffle sauce which really made me enjoy this dish even more.

We actually had two more specialties but I am keeping this a surprise for our guests who will be joining us for the event. These are customized ones that will be specially created just for them!

Mr. Jones is always a happy place with delicious food! Now, I really have to schedule that date with Paul to make him try Mr. Jones soon!

Mr. Jones is located at the Ground Floor of Greenbelt 5, Ayala Center in Makati City. Call them at 501.3111
