Try Every Restaurant in Robinsons Place (TERRP), Phase 3.

In Manila since January, here through October under the current contract, living above Robinsons Place, I've been eating my way through the mall.  As far as I know, nobody has ever done anything like this, my unique contribution to the city's food/blog scene.  I did all the restaurants on the 1st floor (currently 36, down from the initial 40) and the 2nd floor (currently 7, down from the initial 14).  Now, I'm on to the restaurants on the 3rd floor (currently 28, 2 of which were already covered during Phase 1).  Then, once Phase 3 is complete, time permitting, the 4th floor.  Henceforth, however, I'll take them as they come, no more pushing the agenda; if I don't finish, oh well.


This is the 58th in the series, the 15th on the 3rd floor.  Padre Faure Wing.

Kim n' Chi is a Korean-style food court stall.


The bibimbab was crap.  The main problem was that the components had all been sautéed in oil, rather than parboiled in water then lightly dressed in oil, making everything rather greasy.  And the beef consisted of big chunks of tough meat, way too sweet, totally unpalatable.  No quite sure if I'd had any expectations going in, but I was disappointed nevertheless.
