CoW DaDi: Prime Rib At Its Finest

(Wow! It’s my first time to write a blog post using my mobile phone. It’s finally happening! Lol.) When my boyfriend and I have a hankering for awesome steak dishes, our go-to place is usually Mad Mark’s in Glorietta. But, … Continue reading

Mad Mark’s Part II: Cos We Just Can Get Enough

Wow! I’ve been gone for a¬†long time! I’m so sorry; I’ll try to get back on track. ūüôā

In line with this, I would like to share my 2nd Mad Mark’s experience— this time, with the resto’s trademark ice cream!

The last time we were there, my food buddy and I had an amazing time¬†(read all about it¬†here). And this 2nd time? Well, let me tell you one thing: Mad Mark’s doesn’t disappoint.¬†Mad Mark’s always impress.

For dinner, we ordered Steak & Frites (USDA steak with mushroom sauce, fresh salad, and herb fries, P265) and Yamazaki Steak (Osakan-flavored steak with fries, P265).

(Aaand hers, the Steak and Frites)

We didn’t order Patatas Bravas anymore because, as you can see, we already got that covered. Haha. Anyway,¬†as usual, I looove the food! I asked for my steak to be well done, and they did it right. I didn’t regret my decision to order mushroom sauce— it went well with the steak. The herb fries is good too, but I’d prefer the regular¬†patatas over that.

Now join me as we journey to the “dessert moon…”

We were excited to try the ice cream, but since we’re on a tight budget (as always!), we just agreed to share on one cup of ¬†ice cream.¬†We had a slightly hard time choosing the flavor, but fortunately, Mad Mark’s have flavor combinations up on their board, and the waiter suggested Madagascar Vanilla Bean with Javan Hot Chocolate.

The result? Amazing!

Both flavors were¬†neither too sweet nor too plain. They have their own attitudes. ūüėČ But if I were to choose, I like the Javan Hot Chocolate better. Why? Because it’s dark chocolate! I’m a sucker for dark chocos, and this ice cream hits the spot. The fact that every Mad Mark’s ice cream is homemade, well, made our experience more awesome.

We still have A LOT to try on that resto. Mark loves it, I love it… and we’re definitely going back soon! (Maybe after 3 months again… or less. Lol.)

Mad Mark’s Creamery and Good Eats: Insanely Yummy (and Heavy!) Food

IMG_20140724_195738

Mad Mark’s Creamery and Good Eats, located at¬†2/F¬†Glorietta 5,¬†Office Dr.,¬†Ayala Center, Makati. Other branch:¬†23¬†East Capitol Drive,¬†Kapitolyo, Pasig (Contact #¬†(02) 342-6802)

Wow! A blog post about food. Haven’t done a foodie post in a while‚Ķ geez.

Anyway, just recently, I was able to try something new in a not-so-new place for me: Glorietta 5. Hahaha. (I know, I know. Shame on this Makati girl.)

For dinner, my food buddy Mark suggested Mad Mark’s Creamery and Good Eats (or simply Mad Mark’s) in Glorietta 5 because, well, it’s his namesake. Haha. He initially picked the place because of its name, but we were surprised that it’s actually a good place with very sulit food.

Mad Mark’s actually started out as a quaint, hole-in-the-wall creamery in Kapitolyo, and eventually made its way into the fast-laned city of Makati. They serve the whole package– from appetizers to the desserts, which is their made-from-scratch ice cream, I believe.

Now for the grub we had. My pig-out buddy ordered the Signature Steak with two sidings (bacon potato salad and garden grains) and bootstrap sauce (P265.00), while I had the Yard Bird and Bacon Slab (P290.00). As a starter, we ordered Patatas Bravas (P75.00).

I had every bit of what we ordered and, in fairness, they’re all “Janey Approved!” I absolutely love the steak and the bacon– their chunky goodness just had me begging for more. The chicken’s also good, but honestly, I prefer the bacon and steak. Hehe. The fries (Patatas Bravas) are great, too! I love it when I chance upon long pieces of fries– no fast-food fries can amount to that!

IMG_20140724_192315(Yours truly, amazed by how chunky and heavy the serving is. Lol.)

Mad Mark’s offerings literally filled our tummy to the maximum level. Each meal was so heavy that I had to loosen up my belt! Haha not kidding. Not ideal for dinner (especially if you’re a weight-watcher), but they’re delicious anyway, so why not? Hahaha.

Unfortunately, we weren’t able to try any of their ice cream products, but at least we’ll have more reasons to come back SOON! We shall, and we will!

For a very satisfying food fest that’s not so hurtful on the pocket, try Mad Mark’s! Just make sure to list your name once you get there, because I think they’re jam-packed most of the time. ūüėČ
