TERRP (Try Every Restaurant in Robinsons Place), Phase 4.

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've tried all the restaurants on the 1st floor (currently 36, down from the initial 40), the 2nd floor (currently 8, down from the initial 14), and the 3rd floor (currently 30).  And finally, to finish out this godforsaken project, I'm now on the 4th floor (currently 11).  After tonight, 5 more to go--the home stretch--I can taste the end.


This is the 80th in the series, the 6th on the 4th floor.  Pedro Gil Wing.

All restaurants on the 1st floor:

- 39(1.36) Apr 2 / Cabalen (Filipino) (see 5.087 Buffet Scraps) / 1.5 / $$

Marina Oyster Seafood Grill is Filipino restaurant chain.  Founded in 1997.  Currently 9 locations, mostly in malls scattered around Metro Manila.  Touted to specialize in seafood, though at least half of the menu is comprised of meat dishes.


The crispy crablets were okay.  Nice crunch on the outside, but very little flesh inside.  As such, not much crab flavor, just a bit spicy.  Whatever.
