C2 Power Plant Mall

It's our first time at C2 Powerplant mall. I have frequented it's Shang branch, and used to love it! The menu has been changed, I see...and I was so excited to see that they have embraced my favorite MALUNGGAY!!! =)

I cook malunggay rice daily. Learning about how nutri-packed the lowly Moringga Olifera is, I ditched my multi-vitamin caps and switched to a cup of malunggay cooked with my rice for office lunch. Oh yeah...I really take time to cook my rice before leaving for the office, even if my family complains with the smell! hehehehe They don't like the grassy aroma coming from steaming my rice! ;P

Anyhoos...back to C2---this is why I was so happy that I can enjoy my maluggay rice even if we are dining out!

Malunggay Rice Php 150.00
Garlic sauteed rice with malunggay pesto. It's a more subtle tasting garlic-malunggay rice that I think is more acceptable to more people than my grassy steamed version ;P We liked it, although we thought it needed more salt and for me, more moringa flava! =) Nonetheless, eating spoonfuls and spoonfuls of this rice felt virtuous, knowing we are doing our bodies alot of good...hence, we wipe out the bowl ;P hahahahaha

And ofcourse we did not clean up the Moringa rice in solitaire...no, no...we paired it up with fittingly healthy choices...

Crispy Tawilis Php 225.00
Fish fingerlings battered and deep-fried, then drizzled with sweet-soy glaze. These delicacies from Taal lake, Batangas were a real treat! We loved every crispy fish-ling dipped in the sweet-soy sauce, that was served on the side, rather than drizzled as described.

Lumpiang Hubad Php 125.00
Thick cut fresh vegetables, sauteed and cooked with the lumpia sauce. The Wrapper was fried and crunched to bits, served along side. We loved the freshness and lightness of this dish. It doesn't taste like the traditional lumpiang ubod that I adore, but this rendition had a nice and filling twist to the classic dish.

After our meal, we felt full, yet we still felt good =) Service was excellent too and I love the classy-casual ambiance, even if we were inside the mall. We will definitely come back here!

Since we have been oh so good with our food choices, we treated ourselves to a nice strawberry sorbeto at Pazzo =)

Strawberry Sorbet Php 85.00
Refreshing and yummy!

Jen, since we're all on the subject of healthy and delicious eating, might I recommend Le Bistro Vert in Salcedo Village? The inch-thick pork chop, spiced pumpkin soup, and green tea tiramisu are all fab. :)
