5/F Shangri-La Mall, Edsa corner Shaw Blvd., Mandaluyong City
We wanted to try a restaurant that I haven’t reviewed yet. We ended up choosing Secret Recipe. My friend recommended this and I said why not? Besides my colleague Jo always mentions that we should try to eat there (calling Jo!).
We ordered their ever-famous Lamb stew, let you know later if we liked it 😛
Here are what we ordered:
- Green Apple Kasturi (Php 120)
The restaurant has pictures of their menu items all over the walls. This was one of them & it looked so delicious so I ordered it. It does taste good, not your usual fruit juice. I do think that Green Apple is not the only ingredient here, I just can’t figure out what 🙂
- Iced Lemon Tea (Php 50)
I didn’t order this but I’ll order this drink when I eat at Secret Recipe next time. Not our usual powdered Iced tea. Combination of tea, water & lemon 🙂
- Irish Lamb Stew (Php 480)
This is highly recommended by everyone so even if I’m not fond of lambs, I said why not? Maybe it’s really that good. This is tender lamb shank cooked with herbs. Served with mashed potato (designed beautifully) & bun. My friend was totally disappointed coz he tried the same dish at a different country’s secret recipe restaurant. I guess it’s because the lamb here isn’t the same? For me, I’m really just not fond of lambs period 🙂
- Thai Style Fried Rice (Php 300)
I really liked the presentation for this dish and I feel it’s a bit cheap considering the serving. And it’s delicious too though the soup was just toooooo spicy! I think the chef accidentally put too much spice in it!
It’s fried rice cooked Thailand style with shrimps & shrimp paste. Served with 2 pieces King prawns, additional shrimp paste, salad & Tom Yum Soup.
- White Chocolate Macademia (Php 120/slice, Php 1400/whole)
I love white chocolate & I also love macademia nuts but I’m not fond of cakes. When I first saw the cake slice, I said wow it’s a big slice of cake! Best for sharing unless you really eat a lot hehehe 😛 It’s good but I’m not wowed by it. I can barely taste the macademia but it’s still okay nonetheless.
My friend was kinda disappointed with what we ordered, I felt there’s no chance for that person to go eat at Secret Recipe again 😛
As for me, I’m really not fond of Lamb so I wasn’t really expecting anything. As for the restaurant & the food they serve, I think I will go back to try their other dishes. It’s not that bad, I gave them good feedback when they asked me to provide it in their sheet. 🙂
