Our choice of mall these days is SM Megamall. That’s because my husband’s office is near this mall, and that’s where we park our car to save on parking fee. We had dinner at Chelsea Kitchen , SM Megamall last August and tried the following food offerings: Crispy Pork Belly Bagnet, Squid Ink Chorizo Adobo, Three Cheese Pizza and Cookie Dough Cheesecake.
We were supposed to order a different pork dish but it wasn’t available when at the time of our visit, so we opted for Crispy Pork Belly Bagnet instead. The pork skin was crispy, yes, but the meat was a little tough to eat. It was also very mildly seasoned but a tiny sprinkle of rosemary salt made it quite delightful. Aside from the rosemary salt, this pork dish also came with a side of sour apple onion jam, which wasn’t really to our liking.
This Squid Ink Chorizo Adobo has baby squid, homemade chorizo, red onion and local tomato. The squid was tender but the sauce was a bit more sour than usual perhaps due to the addition of local tomatoes. It was okay but I don’t think we’ll order this again.
This 12″ stone-fired Three Cheese pizza, according to their menu, is their bestseller. As the name suggests, it has three types of cheese, although not specified on their menu. A cheese pizza is something safe that we can order for our son who’s a certified cheese lover. He ate most of it which was expected because we really ordered it for him. I managed to have a slice, too, and I liked its pleasing mild cheese taste.
Another bestselling item at Chelsea Kitchen is their Cookie Dough Cheesecake that my son enjoyed a lot. He actually wanted it all for himself. Lol! I couldn’t blame him because it was creamy and silky without being overly sweet.
We were pleased with our orders at Chelsea Kitchen, save for the Squid Ink Chorizo Adobo. Maybe it’s because we’re not used to the taste of tomatoes in the squid adobo. We like this seafood dish with only vinegar as the souring agent.
