I like the food at Mr Jones. I am there almost every week. So when there was a promo from Groupon of P500 for P1000 worth of food, I immediately bought 4 coupons.
Last Friday was my first time to redeem one of the coupons. Incidentally, it was also my husband's first time there.
Even though I frequent the diner, I usually order my favorites and don't try anything new. That afternoon I decided to order something new, the Honey Drizzled Fried Chicken with Homemade Biscuits.
I love, love, love, the homemade biscuits, they tasted very fresh and they were soft and sweet and creamy. I also feel the same with their mashed potato, that's creamy as well. Same thing with the light-colored gravy, that complemented all three (chicken, biscuits and mashed potato).
What I don't like was the over-fried taste of the chicken and how oily it was.
For my husband, it was Tapa and Garlic Overload.
He liked the garlic rice, atchara, vinegar dip and the sunny side-up eggs and also the taste of the tapa. He just doesn't like that it has a lot of fatty parts.
We also ordered Hot & Spicy Shrimp Scampi for appetizer.
Incidentally, I cooked Gambas just the night before. It did taste almost the same. Mr jones was just spicier and has lots of oil. But I like how it tasted. I also like the rye bread croutons dipped on the sauce.
