Truth is, we went to Legazpi Village in Makati just across Greenbelt 5 to try a colleague’s suggestion –for us to subject Gabby to a VTR in a talent/modelling agency for TVC (read : TV commercials). Oops, let me clear that out : Gabby only had his photos taken and did a VTR; no casting calls yet, people! Of course we’ll let you know if he’ll be doing something beyond ordinary. (Well, you know for Tina and I, he’ll always be our GREATEST KID!) We just took a chance; brought him in and we’re glad that our little boy liked it! He told us he was asked in the VTR room to smile, turn right, then left, turn the camera and smile, state his name, school and age and smile again. If there would be no calls for a go-see or whatnot, then there’s no harm, just plain fun!
After few more steps from the agency, Tina, Gabby and I with one of our friends found ourselves seated comfortably here…
Who says you cannot eat breakfast in the afternoon? In Mr. Jones, some of our favorite morning starters are served all day! (Wala lang yatang tuyo, tinapa, danggit at itlog na pula’t kamatis, hehehe)
It was our first time to try Mr. Jones, a considerably newer food place an upscale diner at Greenbelt 5 that’s related to Museum Cafe (also in Greenbelt), Chelsea Market Cafe (in Serendra) and Momo Cafe (Eastwood Mall and Robinson’s Place). According to the wait staff, Mr. Jones serves breakfast-all-day beginning 11AM.
So at around 3PM, I was enjoying one of the most delicious TAPA in town…
U.S. BEEF RIBCAP “TAPA & GARLIC OVERLOAD” , Php 295+. Servings in Mr. Jones are HUGE! Sharing is inevitable! Take my word on it : it’s one of the yummiest breakfast plate I had The beef tapa were sliced as thin as bacon strips, so flavorful that it can still stimulate your palate sans vinegar and achara(pickled papaya)! But the achara and a little-sweet vinegar also add up to the experience! That tapa and garlic overload rests on a bed of garlic rice… Ahhhhhh… ang SARAP!
The eggs can be cooked the way-you-want. I asked the smiley waitress what’s best, and she recommended scrambled. Actually, I don’t mind whether it’s sunny-side-up or scrambled. But it seemed like the staff really knows their stuffs.
Surely, it deserves a second try on our future visits! It’s that good!
For our commercial model-to-be cute kid, he enjoyed sipping heavenly milkshakes from a tall glass and a canister…
CHOCOLATE MILKSHAKE, PhP 175+ This tasted like blended chocolate ice cream and we liked it! Gabby loved it. What we liked about it? They serve you even the extra-blended shake in a canister if the glass is already full. It felt like you had 2 for the price of 1.
Tina and our friend shared a huge plate of….
MAC N CHEESE, PhP 350+. We noticed the use of 3 different pasta : rigatoni, penne and macaroni all fused into one dish; creamy and cheesy with bacon bits and mushroom. It was OK but would not sky-rocket you to outer space.
Just look at the evidence that Mr. Jones’ Tapa and Garlic overload is really a must-try :
Whether Gabby will soon nail a bit player part in a TVC or NOT, we’re considering going back to Mr. Jones whenever possible if only for that tapa and to try their other breakfast-all-day menu!
