Food Review: Persia Grill (Sky Garden, SM North Edsa)

Opo, kumakain din ako ng real food.



Baka akala nyo puro T!$3 lang ang kinakain ko.



Choz.



Anyway, rumampa ang lolah nyo sa Quezon City recently at dahil matagal ko ng gustong kainin ang may-ari ng restaurant na itetch, naisipan kong dito na lang kumain.... sa Persia Grill.


I was expecting to be served by no less than the owner himself with this 'uniform'....





















Hahaha! Wishful thinking lang naman ang bruha. Kasabayan ko dati sa gym 'yan at may lingering emotions pa ang reyna. In short - 'pagnanasa.' choz.


Heniway,


Walang katao-tao ng dumating akey. Sunday ng 12:30pm yon kaya i was expecting na may lunch crowd na. May dumating namang 2 pa kaya naging 3 kami. Hindi naman kami pwedeng mag-orgy don ng 3 lang. And besides hindi ko type yung mhin na kasama nung bilat. Choz.


Humahaba ang kwento.



I called the waitress and I ordered Mozarella Cheese Puffs (P95.00) for appetizer.























Disappointed agad ang lolah nyo. Dapat ang tinawag dito ay Mozarella Cheese Pufffft!


First, it was greasy at sobrang kunat. Maygash. The 'dough' they used is soo kapal (and kunat nga) and the mozarella cheese filling is very little. The cooking oil, (where the mozarella puffs were deep fried, i supposed) will spill alongside the mozarella cheese when you cut it.


Hanung lasa? Well, mas value for money pa ang P55.00 two-slices pizza ng Pizza Hut.


For the main course, i had the Grilled Lamb Chops with Dolmeh (P335.00). The waitress asked me how i want my meat cooked and i told her "medium rare".


This is what i got.






















Pakshet! If this is medium rare, eh hanung hitsura ng well-done?


Uling?


Gusto ko sanang isoli yung food pero kiber na lang, nilafang ko na.


And i thought the 'surprise' is over.


I realized that 70% of the steak is actually chunks of bone.



















Hey, the last time i checked, tao pa ako at hindi Siberian Husky. Shushal! Hihihi.


Kung tatanggalin ko pa 'yung sunog na part, eh kapiranggot na lang talaga ang matitira sa inakay ng tupa na itetch.


The size and the quality of the meat and how its cooked is far-cry from the image in their menu. They must have just seasoned the meat with salt because I couldn't actually determine if it was marinated, herbed or spiced prior to grilling because the burnt taste overpowers the distinct gamey flavor of the lamb. Wait, nag-nosebleed akey. Hihihi!


















The Dolmeh is actually good. Not as good as Cyma's but i kinda liked it.


And another thing i noticed is that considering there's just 3 of us eating in their restaurant, the entire floor was filled with smoke eh wala namang nag-tsi-chicha o shisha. whatevah.


They must really fix their exhaust system.


But the food is a greater concern.


I actually felt i was cheated! Despite the fact that i was using my Groupon voucher (P400.00 worth), i think yung price ng meal ko eh hindi commensurate sa quality ng food.


I told the waitress my comments at tumango-tango lang ang bilat.


She then asked me if i will order dessert pero i decided to not prolong this unsavory experience.


Enough na ateh.


And yes, i am the BBB.


Big Bad Blogger?


Nope.

Ms. Chuniverse said...

@Ewan.... Haynaku, may punto ka dyan. Baka nga may relasyon ang starbucks at Persia Grill. Dapat pala hindi ako nag sash at crown nung pumunta ako dun noh?



@Kiks.... mapapawi lang ang disappointment ko kung si Kian ang magsi-serve sa 'kin next time. Hihihi. kilig much. :)

@HRH Queen Chuni: hahaha! i totally loved this one... you meticulously described the taste of your far-from-sumptuous meal.. for Persia Grill (Sky Garden, SM North Edsa), "X marks the spot" --- "The size and the quality of the meat and how its cooked is far-cry from the image in their menu. They must have just seasoned the meat with salt because I couldn't actually determine if it was marinated, herbed or spiced prior to grilling because the burnt taste overpowers the distinct gamey flavor of the lamb."

and here's where i did a cartwheel.. hahaha! you need a bloodbag, my queen? --- "Wait, nag-nosebleed akey. Hihihi!"

Simurgh said...

Kelerkey!
Wala ako masabi, sana namudmud ka ng award.

Mr. Hush Hush said...

madam chuni, the first time I ate at Persian Grill was very disappointing for me too (at Valero Makati), even though Kian was there to oversee everything. His presence was not 'powerful' enough to compensate for the bland food they had (I think I had kebab that time). :( Besides, KIan has huge ears! hahahahaha sama ko :(

Anonymous said...

ahhh di ko nakilala si Kian Kazemi pala yan ng PBB anoh? hehehe. hahaha kung me "hotdog ni Aljur" eh me "kebab ni kian" ba? hehe

likod muna, pag ok sa iyong teyts, pati harap may I show na..enjoy my dear..( pagpasensyahan mo na ang blog ko ha, di kasi ako kasing galing mo!..choz!)

shenanigans said...

groupon? meron na ba dito sa manila? or beeconomics yun? hehe! i must know competitor namin sila eh sa US.

anyway, ilang star ang verdict mo?

shenanigans said...

aaahhhh.. naun ko lang na realize.

kaya siguro ganun yung servings sayo maybe because coupon lang gamit mo. since may 50% discount yun.. brand dilution is one of the disadvantages of group buying or also known as daily deals site pero hindi naman lahat actually.

candy said...

Ms Chuni, knows nila na mahilig ka sa t*t3 kaya ganyan sinerve nila. pansinin mo yung buto ng lamb hugis t*t3 na may b3tl0g.... hihihi..

Ms. Chuniverse said...

@JC.... kuya kim lang ganon? hahaha! well, tingnan natin. hihihi. Next target: Basix at Dusit Thani Hotel. shushal! :)


@Citybuoy.... they have one yata in Valero. Well, if you want greek food, i'll recommend Cymas at Greenbelt. :)


@DPromdi.... bwahahaha! walanghiya ka. Sana ibang 'matigas na buto' na lang. hihihi. :)


@Shenanigans.... yes, groupon/beeconomics. meron pang cash cash, buyanihan, ensogo, etc. i'm a big fan of these. hihihi! you have a point about diluted chuva na yan. but, thats bad. it will boomerang to them big time. :) kaya right now, i'll just buy buffet coupons muna. :) thanks!


@Candy.... bwahahaha! futah ka. uu nga noh. pero sana titi na lang sinerve nila, happy ako, happy sila. everybody happy!!! choz.

ʎonqʎʇıɔ said...
