Magnolia Town Center

The Magnolia Residences City Food Picks is a foodie tour at the nearby Robinsons Magnolia Mall that highlights urban comforts amidst a variety of food picks and shops.

A few weeks ago, we were accompanied by two famous food connoisseurs in the country behind the Mercato Centrale Group and Our Awesome Planet, RJ Ledesma and Anton Diaz respectively.

While RJ served as our tour guide, it was Anton who hand picked the restaurants we visited in the Magnolia Residences City Food Picks Tour. He combined the concept of good food, uniqueness, and variety of dining choices as well.

Be ready to fill-up your eyes from appetizers to main entrees to dessert food such as chocolates and ice cream.

HOUSE OF SILVANAS

House of Silvanas is almost a household name for dessert lovers having started since 1995 with its highlight silvanas product.

The CITY FOOD PICK for this dessert house is no less than the silvanas themselves!

The rich buttercream in between two thin meringue wafers is dusted with cookie crumbs in a variety of flavours such as pandan, strawberry, mango and ube.

It was so good I brought home some.

This is the highlight of the night for me – Gaucho. (Top Photo)

Gaucho is the first and only Argentinian restaurant in the Philippines. They have been here for quite a while and I have been to Rob Magnolia a number of times but I never knew about them. Maybe perhaps because they are located at the far end of top floor.

Since Argentina is known as a meat-loving nation, this two-level Argentinean inspired restaurant serves up organic pork, US beef and Australian lamb roasted Argentinean style.

The CITY FOOD PICKS for this stop are signature dishes “El Pozo de Fuego,” Falda a la Cruz; Cochino a la Cruz; and Cordero Entero a la Cruz. The Gaucho experience was so good it deserves it’s own article. Watch out for that here in NomNomClub.com in the next few weeks!

THE MAGNOLIA ICE CREAM FLAVOR HOUSE
