Back in Mamou for my 43rd

Been a while since I last dined here. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that they now have a branch in Power Plant, which happens to be my favorite shopping mall.

I first wanted to go to Barcino there for my birthday dinner. But when we arrived at around a little past 8pm, there were no tables available. So the next best option (a tried and tested one) was Mamou.

Luckily for us, there was a table good enough for 5 people right outside and it wasn't so hot that particular evening. We were famished so we didn't lose time in ordering. While waiting for our orders to arrive, I just had to take a few photos because it was my first time at this branch.

The chandeliers give the place a nice and unique touch

Loved the paper placemats

We were given a complimentary bread basket. The breads are small and perfect because they're easier to wolf down LOL.

Then the food came ... finally! (note: service wasn't bad. we were just so hungry!)

Truffle Flavored Vegetable Mushroom Dip with Melba Chips
The perfect appetizer!

Soft Shell Crab Salad
Beer battered soft shell crabs, arugula, Lola Rosa, tomatoes, anchovy vinaigrette
The dressing in indescribably delicious. One can never go wrong with this.

Batac Bolognese
Spaghettini, Batac Ilocos sausage, fennel, stewed tomato sauce, served al dente

Lamb Tapa
White garlic rice (you can ask for red rice), eggs with truffle flavored oil, salsa Pina on the side
The lamb was to die for!

Lorenzo's Truffle Cream 
Spaghettini, Truffle flavored cream, Grana Padano cheese, served al dente
Although a bit on the heavy side because it's cream-based, I really really loved this.
So tasty!

Pulled Steak Sandwich
Sliced Prime Grade Angus Ribeye on white or whole wheat bread

There was absolutely no room for dessert after trying out a little bit of everything we ordered. The kids were so happy with the food, too. Plus it was really nice dining outdoors because Rockwell is now all set to welcome Christmas. We were surrounded by red lights.

We had some leftovers to bring home in these paper doggie bags that are so appropriate. I wish all restaurants would stop using plastic bags.

Thank you to my wonderful babies for taking me out to dinner!
