What’s new in Shang Mall? Aside from the retail stores that I featured in my last story, Shangri-La Mall has opened a number of dining options to add to its existing restaurants. From breakfast, lunch, dinner (plus snacks and coffee breaks in between), people can now trust they have some place to go to whenever they are in the vicinity.
If you live in or have an early meeting in the Mandaluyong area, stop by Bake House at Level 1, North Wing. Yes, the in-house bakery that you see in Shangri-la Hotel The Fort is now part of the Shang Mall dining selection. Whipping up freshly baked sweet and savory bites, every indulgence here is made with natural and trans-fat free ingredients. Choose from sweet treats like the conscious cookie and various delectable croissants and pair it with a hot or cold drink of your choice. (I like the dark chocolate drink. I was given hot milk in a cup and a dark chocolate lolly that I need to dip in the steaming liquid — FUN!) If savory dishes is more to your liking then try the pancetta quiche or the beef pie. They serve whole cakes, too, like Strawberry Lychee, Quark Cheesecake and Ohaina.
Filipinos are in a Korean daze right now what with all the Kpop, Kdrama, and Kreality shows. Complete the fascination with palette pleasing dishes at Bulgogi Brothers, Level 6 East wing. For delicious Korean food that family and friends will surely enjoy, this restaurant is definitely a great choice. Enjoy mouthwatering sweet-savory bulgogi or barbecue as you dine in front of a round grill. The cooking is as much fun as the dining itself!
All-time favorite TGI Fridays is right across and offers salads, mains and desserts. Try their whiskey-glazed baby back ribs, spicy Cajun shrimps, pasta dishes. They also serve Filipino food like pork liempo and rice.
Coffee lovers will be happy to discover yet another coffee place in the mall. Department of Coffee may sound a bit stiff — it’s anything but. Pair their brews with buttery croissants and pastries. Chocolat au pain is a winner! The stand alone kiosk is perfect for short stops in between your shopping spree. It also serves Cafelat Robots if you feel like making your own cup at home.
For big snacks and dinner, try the choice cuts of steak-quality grass-fed Australian and American beef only from Raging Bull Burgers at Level 1, North Wing. Menu favorites include the Angus Beef Patty, Kickass and Raging Wagyu burgers. Not wanting for sides, you can order fries with different toppings. Milkshakes for kids and beer for bigger kids are likewise served. Vegan selection is also available.
Jay R. Polloso, Shang Properties EVP for Retail and Commercial says, ” Our diverse selection of dining destinations reflect our commitment to providing our mall guests a memorable Shang experience. We understand the needs of our customers that is why Shang Mall continues to evolve to better cater to the demands.”
