TERRP (Try Every Restaurant in Robinsons Place), 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 doing the restaurants on the 3rd floor (currently 30, 2 of which were already covered during Phase 1).  Then, once Phase 3 is complete, onto the 4th floor, time permitting.  Henceforth, however, I'll take them as they come, no more pushing the agenda; if I don't finish, no big deal.


This is the 69th in the series, the 26th on the 3rd floor.  Padre Faure Wing.

Steak Escape is a yada yada fucking yada.  

The only thing that matters is that it's the last stall in the food court.  Done.  Escape indeed.

YUM!!

Pork tocino is a Filipino pork dish.  Consists of thinly sliced pork, marinated in soy sauce, MSG, loads of sugar, and radioactive red food coloring, grilled to a carcinogenic char.  Tastes like burnt bacon candy (when the family was here in May, Dominic tried pork tocino at the airport cafeteria on the way back to Korea and totally loved it).  Often served at breakfast along with a fried egg.

The pork tocino at Steak Escape was okay.
