(Sorry Gail, inunahan na kita! hehe)
I’ve heard of this restaurant a long time ago, but it was only when Gail posted it on her blog contest that I took the time to search the net on what this restaurant was all about.
Heaven N’ Eggs is primarily a breakfast food place focusing on pancakes and eggs, available all through out the day. They do have other food choices like steaks, sandwiches, rice meals and wraps for lunches and dinners. I think the original outlet is at Glorietta? Or is it where it became famous? Anyway, I found out that they have just opened a branch at TriNoma last December.
Since that mall is just an MRT away, I hurriedly texted my high school friends Romie Joy and Jeane to accompany me on yet another gluttony fest 🙂
The theme of the restaurant is al fresco, and I didn’t mean it in a true sense. It’s an imitation of the outdoors, with a lamp post at the center of the room, cloud-painted walls, bench-like seats with taxi signs on them (biyaheng langit daw,haha) and a porch that suggests that you are dining right in front of a house. Some of the waiters are wearing angel wings.
I heard that they charge 8% for the service fee, so I made sure to make the most out of it. The crew was very accommodating and very friendly, even though I kept on asking them for extra menus, refills and other requests. But after looking at the receipt, I saw that they have increased that charge to 10%!!! That’s a frickin P93! Hell, I should have had asked them to clean my house too.
For the food, I ordered their bestseller, the Manila spareribs which costs P385 . My pick already includes a choice between a salad or soup (I chose the soup: crabmeat n’ bacon), 2 pieces of dulce de leche pancakes and a bottomless iced tea. I also heard that the serving was good for two people. When I got my plate, I already knew that I can finish the meal on my own, which I did by the way. Who the hell did I got that information (portions were huge) from? The serving was just enough for one, for me that is. hehe. My friends finished theirs on their own too, so I guess my judgment’s right.
The spareribs was so tender that it falls right off the bones. It’s very tasty as well.
The soup was watery, I’m not a big fan but it will do, while my dulce de leche pancakes are divine 🙂
Jeane ordered the Clemenzas Meatball pasta (P295). It has 2 huge meatballs and 2 slices of garlic bread. The pasta is very italian, meaning its a bit sour for the filipino taste.
I ordered Romie (hehe) to get the Jackson Five pancakes(P165). Its only now that I realized why they call it as such. I guess that’s Michael on the top. Haha!
They have these different pancake syrup flavors too. The first one is the peach. I didn’t like it because it tasted like cough medicine. The third on the row is the coconut syrup which is quite interesting. You know the coconut oil that we commonly use for massages? Well, that’s how the coconut syrup tastes like, only sweeter. There’s also the typical maple and coffee syrup. I like the coffee one the most. 🙂
Well, that’s it. The place is cozy, the waiting time short and unlike other restaurants, the food at Heaven N’ Eggs are very filling. But its a bit pricey and the service charge is very unreasonable.
I would definitely go back to this place, but only if somebody else would pay for it.
