It was my first time to eat at a mall located in the South. I’m an East (Pasig) and North person and well, you can throw Makati there also but I seldom find myself in the South area. It was also my first time at Westgate and it seems to be our version of Eastwood. There were several restaurants and coffee shop in the area.
It was also my first time at a Hawaiian-themed restaurant. As well, a first time to try the luau fests.
Luau Fest: food served in banana leaves meant to be shared.
Our choice of theme for the luau fest was a hit. The bagoong rice was made of bagoong balayan (anchovy sauce) and not of bagoong alamang (shrimp paste). I never knew bagoong balayan tasted good with rice. Combined with grilled squid, chicken, liempo, eggplant and okra – it was a hearty Filipino dish. It felt like we were actually beside a beach and enjoying a grilled dinner.
The other group tried these:
Davao Gulf (mostly served with salsa;
came with mango salsa, pomelo salad, cucumber salad and kilawin;
with crab rice)
Japanese Hawaiian (with pineapple pork rice)
Hula Hula is a must try especially for the experience. I have yet to try their crabs and famous belly chops.
