Jack’s Loft, And Ours Too!

Standard

As newlyweds about four years ago, the place Jake and I first stayed in was  fifty steps away from Jack’s loft in San Juan. No wonder, we trooped over to the place quite often then– whether to just have a swig of banana- peanut butter smoothie or grab a big time bite!

Just today, ‘Jack’ and I had a reconnection of sorts. My high school friends and I decided to hook up at Jack’s loft, Tomas Morato for a catch-up chat. Once  again, I feasted on their gastronomic delights with my eyes closed! Yum-o! 

Our fantastic beginning was made up of lettuce and everything nice…

 After much deliberation on what to order next, we finally decided to get carbonara, chicken fingers, beef salpicao, and grilled chicken breast with mashed potatoes. Now, that’s 3 hours straight on the treadmill! Haha!

Their beef salpicao just had the right blend and consistency of the soy sauce and oil. Very garlicky but not offensive nor bitter. Beef, so tender. Yum! Ahh, how we raved about this salpicao (translation: pinag agawan namin!).

 Their mashed potato dish has got to be one of the yummiest I’ve sampled. It’s soft, creamy and literally melts in your mouth!

 I just love their carbonara. The pasta noodles lock in much of the flavors of the white sauce. The play of salty (courtesy of the bacon) and creamy in the sauce, absorbed by the lingune noodles, just makes the whole ensemble wonderful beyond words!

Cheers!!!

  1. My friends and i wanted to spend our bonding time at Jack’s Loft Robinsons Place Manila coz we really love their iced tea. While my other friends went to the comfort room, my friend and i went to the Jack’s Loft Robinsons Place Manila to reserve seats. And then while we’re arranging the seats (imagine the waiter just looked at us, he didn’t even help us), i ordered 1 iced tea immediately because i’m too excited for it. Until he asked me “how many of you will order because he will be scolded by their supervisor if they will allow us to just order 1 iced tea”. Ofcourse we are not too rude just to order one, ofcourse will order MANY! Imagine on how they treat their customers! If i were the owner of this Jack’s Loft Robinsons Place Manila, i’ll fire all the staffs especially that SUPERVISOR!!! Is that how they get an income? treat their customer? While there are many tables vacant take note! Because of that, i’ll never visit that Jack’s Loft Robinsons Place Manila AGAIN! Well i just hope that that store will be closed SOON!
