Happy 150th birthday, Jose Rizal!
Erman and I chanced upon Team Manila's wonderful Rizal installation in front of the Ayala museum last Sunday. The work is comprised of 80 boxes decorated with words and images depicting our national hero's life.
Names, places he's been to, dates and excerpts from his books
We had lunch at Mr. Jones. Lots of good reviews from our friends so we were quite excited eat here.
First up: "Tater Tots 3000 to the Max!" (p275). Fancy deep fried mashed potatoes with either broccoli, walnuts, jamon Serrano and Gorgonzola inside. Served with sour cream and cheddar dip. Found this dish yummy but a bit expensive. Not a lot of filling inside either.
Erman ordered "Two dogs in bed" (p220). This one was reasonably priced :) Yummy fries, jalapeno, pickle and coleslaw on the side.
For meow: "Wicked Truffled Mac n' Cheese" (p395). This was just okay for me. I loved the taste of the truffle oil in the sauce but somehow there was something lacking... Maybe because I had the bacon removed? Haha! Dish is good for 2-3 people.
