——————–
Sharleen and I met up for dinner last week.  It was a great night to bond with one of my dearest friends.  I just missed her.  We used to go out a lot before.  Since she got married and had kids, we had to cut down on our meet up days.

For our dinner, I gave the suggestion that we should try out Mr. Jones because I have heard lots about it on Twitter.  I like to try out things I see recommended online, it doesn’t matter if it’s foxy bingo online or a really good book, I think it’s good to try things that others recommend. When we arrived at the venue, we had to wait because we were 3rd on the waiting list.  I thought to myself, I guess that they really were that good.

Here are what we ordered:

  • Cherry Almond Crunch (Php 175)

cherry shake mr jones

I love almonds and cherries!  So I had to try Mr. Jones’ famous milkshakes.  I ordered their cherry almond crunch :)

Mr. Jones’ Cherry Almond Crunch milkshake basically has vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, cherries, almonds and almond syrup.  All ingredients were shaked in the metal container then poured into a glass.   If there were any excess, they would still give it to us.  That’s the reason why the shaker was served to me as well.

  • “Garlic Portobello” Steak & Eggs (Php 450)

According to my friend, this Beef Tenderloin steak topped with mushrooms and served with three eggs (cooked any style) and with potatoes was too watery and ended up with no taste.  I could see the disappointment so I guess I will never order this Mr. Jones’ menu item.

  • 1/2 Inch Thick Double-Smoked Bacon & Eggs (Php 295)

This is 1/2 inch big big bacon!  I usually prefer crispy thin bacon though but this is okay.  It was served with biscuits, potatoes & 2 eggs.  Definitely will make your stomach full.

  • U.S. Beef Ribcap “Tapa & Garlic Overload” (Php 295)

tapa overload mr jones

This is like the yummiest tapa I have ever eaten!  Overload, true sense of the word!  I wasn’t able to finish it.  It was just too much but I defintely recommend that you order this.  Bestseller! :)

The tapa was topped with tons of toasted garlic and was served with garlic rice, 2 eggs and atchara.  This is definitely a must order.

  • Twinings Green Tea Lemon (Php 110)

The servers will let you choose which flavor of Twinings you prefer.  Then right after they served it in a tea pot with a huge cup (which could actually be a container for a soup).  It’s that big! :P:P  Cute!

I also liked the ambiance of the restaurant.  It had this diner design.  They even had a jukebox!!  I tried the jukebox out (it’s the small thingy behind the seat in the picture below).   It had songs of Elvis Presley.   All of it!! hahaha!  I also love the couch which was very comfortable.  You would really love to hang out at the place for quite some time.
