C2 @ Power Plant --- never again

Had an impromptu lunch with DB today, after an extremely hectic morning. I was so looking forward to rewarding myself with a delicious meal so I suggested that we go to C2 because the one in Shang Mall never fails to impress me.

DB busy on the phone while we were waiting for our orders to arrive

We sat by the window, because as you all know, I love natural sunlight

This is their open kitchen

Fried Pampano with Adobong Kangkong

Pork Binagoongan

(in fairness, the bagoong was really good --- we asked for more)

Aligue Rice

The verdict?
Everything we had was below par, truly disappointing. To think I've always enjoyed dining in C2 Shang Mall. I wonder what the difference is between the two branches? Maybe the one in Power Plant is a franchise, I don't know. That's the only reason I can think of. If I wasn't happy with my meal, you should've heard what DB had to say. I will save it for your imagination because it's way too vulgar to mention here hahaha! That's how p*ssed off he was and if there is someone anyone needs to impress as far as food is concerned, it's my DB

Sorry, C2 Power Plant...I don't want to throw away precious money over there ever again.


  1. I've always loved food from the Cravings group since their early days in Katipunan. I patronize both Cravings and C2 in Shangrila. I haven't been to Rockwell in ages but since I've always been pleased with 2 Shangrila, like you I also wonder why you had a horrible experience.

    My only concern about the Cravings group is when we dined at C3 in Greenhills. The food and the venue were great but they allowed the people who had an event for that evening practice. The noise was just too loud, we came out of the restaurant with migraine.

  2. Heard some other bad reviews about C3 in Greenhills as well.

    Wouldn't call my C2 Rockwell a horrible experience. I guess it was just natural for me to compare them to their Shang branch since that's where we've been going all this time. Far cry talaga.
