Metro Alabang's Food Court

Metro Supermarket is a fairly new establishment located in Alabang Town Center. As with most supermarkets, they also have a food court. What I found interesting about their food court is that it's not the usual stalls you find in most courts here. They have Sbarro, Buffalo's Wings N' Things, Serenitea, etc. The place itself is clean and the tables seem to get cleared out quickly. Nice place!

The Famous P.F. Chang's China Bistro

P.F. Chang's China Bistro is a restaurant which caught the blogosphere's attention when it opened its first Philippine branch last year. The first branch opened in Alabang Town Center. Around the restaurant's proximity are large statues of soldiers and horses from ancient China. The place itself is large and spacious. On its first few weeks it was incredibly hard to get a seat too, so you can see how someone would be excited to dine here if they haven't had the experience yet.

For starters, we went for the Sichuan Shrimp. It cost a whooping 595 pesos. It was a spicy dish and I couldn't get enough of it. The order is good enough for 1-2 people if you're eating rice with it.. Of everything we ordered, this was the dish that I liked the most.

New Obsession: Hapadog

Hapadog: Original Japanese-Style Hotdogs is a fairly new restaurant in Alabang Town Center. According to their website, they also have a branch in Legaspi Village, Makati. The branch in Alabang Town Center is cozy, able to fit maybe about 15 people. What I like about Hapadog the best is that it's a new kind of dining experience, in the sense that I'm not familiar with many places that offer hotdogs that have such a twist to it.
