We have GIFT certificates for Cabalen so Me and my cousin Tin went out and went to Mall of Asia to window shop and of course eat our hearts out in Cabalen. It's been eons since we've been there! IT's been 4 years since our palate taste all the foods being served in cabalen.
When we we're tired and hungry we went to cabalen and asked the girl infont on what time will be the dinner and we were answered that it's on going already. It's only 5 o'clock but since our stomach needs to be satiated we presented the GC to her and we we're led at our table. I had the Fried Kang-kong, Umba, Pork sisig, Lechon, maki, and i think i also had imbotido and chocolate mallows and iced tea. The lechon was not yummy. It was too bland tasting. The next time that i'll be eating there, note to self - just eat kang-kong, maki and the mallows! I don't know why but I was not satisfied with the way all of the food that i tasted. IT was bland and oily.
And while we we're eating they were cleaning the floor. I don't know why. maybe something spilled there or they are cleaning while there's still not too crowded.. the aroma of the zonrox was too everwhelming and while eating it tend to make one lost their appetite and not enjoy the food.
BUt all in all even if the way it taste ( i mean the way it was taste years ago! the food was great! ) was not on par with the way it used to, I will still go there and pig out! They are cheaper than Dad's and Yakimix so if I have a tight budget i'll still go and visit cabalen and if be given a GC again! who am I to refused a gift! It's still food! =)
