I’m really glad that peanutbutter♥ is always able to accompany me and drive me to events specially this one day that I have to be in Ortigas and the MRT having “technical difficulties” that day. We had our little Twinkle along since we don’t have a nanny and she had no choice but to tag along with her parents..heehee.
Twinkle wasn’t in a good mood that day. She was crying a lot and when she’s like that, peanutbutter♥ gets upset as well. He didn’t know what to do to calm her down. Add to the fact that he wasn’t able to have a big breakfast before we left the house, — he was hangry.
So when I came to meet them, both daddy and baby were upset. We needed a good lunch. Since we wanted to try The Halal Guys, off we went to SM Megamall Mega Food Hall to eat.
The Halal Guys is a famous mediterranean restaurant chain in New York which just opened up recently in the Philippines. They’re specially known for their Gyro, Chicken, and Falafel Rice Platters and Sandwiches.
I ordered the Gyro Over Rice (small|₱269) which is like a shawarma topped over rice only without onions and cucumber. White onions and bell peppers are ordered as an add-on for ₱25. This rice platter consists of rice, tasty beef slices, chopped lettuce, tomato, and two small pieces of their pita bread then drizzled with a yogurt-based white sauce. You can order extra white sauce for ₱25 as well. Their platter, even the small one, is great for people who are hungry or those with big appetites. It has too much rice for me, though.
I ordered the Gyro and Falafel Combo (regular|₱369) for peanutbutter♥. We love Falafel and this platter has three pieces of it, gyro, lettuce, tomato, and a few pieces of pita bread. Bell peppers and onions were ordered as add-ons. I felt that the regular size is just right for a man’s appetite but you know what, peanutbutter♥ finds it too big and I couldn’t agree more. We could just have shared a regular size and ordered some pita and hummus on the side.
Anyway, I saw Sweetea by da.u.de on the Mega Food Hall, so naturally it was the drink that went with our food. I had Half and Half Lemonade with Calamansi Fruit Bombs.
The Halal Guys is located at 5L Mega Food Hall, SM Mega Fashion Hall, SM Megamall.
