Rufo’s Famous Tapa at Robinsons Galleria

Because hubby was watching live boxing (Donaire vs. Prado) at the Smart Araneta Coliseum yesterday, I didn’t bother to cook family dinner anymore. My son and I just ate at the food court of Robinsons Galleria before we went grocery shopping. I saw a few new stores and decided one of them. We ordered dinner at Rufo’s Famous Tapa.

Rufo’s Sulit Combo, Php85.00

Rufo’s Sulit Combo seems like a good deal as it includes Rufo’s famous tapa plus another viand plus one side dish and rice (garlic or plain). You can choose any one of these viands for the sulit combo: Pinoy Beef Steak, Pork Sisig, Chicken Adobo, Tocino and Longganisa. For your side dish, you can have fried egg, prawn cracker, oriental cream soup, or atchara (pickled papaya). The tapa was saucy and soft but a little too sweet for my taste. My son said it’s yummy, though. The atchara would have been a safer choice for a side dish as the oriental cream soup was bland.

Personally, I like their chicken adobo more than their tapa. That’s because I’m not really fond of saucy tapa. I prefer spicy tapa without the sauce and with a hint of sweetness only. However, I’m pretty sure that a lot of people will choose this sulit combo because it is super affordable.

Burger Steak, Php66.00

I asked my son if he wanted Burger Steak, and he said okay, so that’s what I ordered for him. It includes 1-piece burger steak with gravy, fried egg, prawn cracker and garlic rice. He ate a few pieces of the prawn crackers, some of which were slightly overcooked. He also finished the burger steak, which was a bit dry and tough to cut and chew. It was also served cold. We will not order this again.

Their chopsuey looks promising, so I’d like to try that next time, along with their Intriguing dessert, the Black Sambo.

Chicken, Shrimps and Ribs Feast by Burgoo

Burgoo is one of hubby’s favorite restaurants. That’s because he enjoys the food here, as well as the dining promos they usually offer. If you happen to drop by Burgoo and can’t decide what to order, then go for a combination platter.

Chicken, Shrimps and Ribs Feast, Php795.00

On one of our visits to Burgoo, we tried their Chicken, Shrimps and Ribs Feast. The barbecued ribs were for hubby, the grilled shrimps were for moi, and the roasted chicken was for our son. The ribs and chicken were tender, juicy and tasty, while the shrimps were fresh, sweet and succulent. Crispy country-style fries are also included in this platter.

Tuan Tuan at SM Megamall

We decided to try Tuan Tuan at SM Megamall two Saturdays ago when we saw that there wasn’t a lot of people inside.

Barbecue Pork Snow Buns, Php128.00

If Tim Ho Wan has Baked Bun with BBQ Pork, Tuan Tuan has Barbecue Pork Snow Buns. While the Barbecue Pork Snow Buns are slightly smaller and cheaper than Tim Ho Wan’s Baked Bun with BBQ Pork, the two are comparable in terms of taste and texture. They’re both pillowy soft, flaky, crispy, as well as sweet and meaty. Our son liked this a lot that he requested for an extra order.

Pork Meatball Congee, Php148.00

I ordered Pork Meatball Congee for our son because he wanted something quick to eat. He only had a little of this, however, because he enjoyed the Barbecue Pork Snow Buns more. I ate most of this and found it quite simple but pleasing. It was lightly seasoned with a generous serving of meatballs.

U.S. Angus Steak with Black Pepper Sauce and Mushroom on Rice, Php388.00

Hubby had U.S. Angus Steak with Black Pepper Sauce and Mushroom on Rice. He liked the slightly spicy sauce and the tender steak.

Fish Fillet with Pumpkin and Crabstick in Creamy Sauce on Rice, Php288.00

Out of curiosity, I ordered Fish Fillet with Pumpkin and Crabstick in Creamy Sauce on Rice. I enjoyed the fish and the green veggies but was a bit overwhelmed by the combined sweetness of the sauce and the sweet corn.

Mixed Fruit Iced Tea and Fresh Lemonade, Php128.00

The Mixed Fruit Iced Tea was refreshingly cool and sweet, while the Fresh Lemonade was a bit too sour for our son’s taste.

We’d definitely go back to Tuan Tuan for their Barbecue Pork Snow Buns. We’d also like to try other items on their menu next time.
