Last night dinner with my lavidabby. Place is big. Food was yummy, I like the salmon salpicado that we ordered. and not too pricy. Kanin is literally "white rice" hindi tinipid! Utensils and glasses are presentable. Place is clean and well managed. There's a smoking area, lots of flat screen tv to watch for UFC and basketball fanatics! There is a mini basketball court that you can play and a 3 large basketball arcade for kids and young at heart to bond with. A mini souvenir/boutique shop at the corner. There's a function room for a big group and for occasion. There's a bar. A good voices singer full band. Love the sound system (Hindi basag pakinggan) there's photo galleries, everywhere. Though comers are class D! Pwede Na din.

Awesome place if you're a huge basketball/PBA fan because if its set-up. Not really a reliable place to eat lunch. After the group on the other table have left so was our waiter. It was difficult getting refills for our water and iced tea. The steak we got was tough and they never even bothered to ask how we want it cooked. The bagnet was nothing special either. Not sure how the rest of the dishes taste or if they are more attentive during drinking hours. Overall, the enormous plush exteriors, vintage jerseys, awesome photographs and numerous TV's were worth coming back for rather than the food and service.

I was delighted to see this one time while I was walking towards buying DVDs. Finally after many attempts, I saw what's inside. It's huge, can fit hundreds. It had memorabilia all over. From jerseys, photos and even basketball activities.

On this trip, my friends and I had three appetizers. They were named either famous PBA player nicknames or signature moves. They weren't exactly fitting the food though.

The Crispy Squid Rings was the best. At Php 180 it was generous. It comes with Spicy Cheesy Meaty Flavor and Coriander Tomato. It's indeed crispy, good on its own but better with the sauces.

Next was the Dynamite. We taught it was the wrapped fried green chili but it's Kilawin with liempo and chili. It also had dilis. This was just okay. It was confusing to eat with so many things going on.

Last stop was the Shrimp Dumplings. It had cheese inside which made it even more tasty. It had 6 pieces each filled in every bite.

I would suggest going for their Team Samplers for groups. They have 5 kinds.

Last night was our company Christmas party at Metrowalk's PBA Cafe. We got a function room that's good for 30 pax for a consumable amount of P20,000.

Upon seeing the cafe at the 2nd level, there's a smoking area for the hoop fanatics. Inside, you'll see casual long tables and chairs at the middle giving the sports bar feels of the venue. There's a stage for live bands and artist performances, a bar wherein LCD TVs are hanged for basketball game screenings. A basketball arcade game machine's also installed in the area for the basketball fanatics who want to show their shooting skills. PBA premium items are also sold in a counter near the arcade machine.

Inside the function room, 2 long tables with chairs were set-up. At the center was a LCD TV where you can play videos and rent the cafe's Magic Sing for videoke sessions.

For our food, we ordered sets of rice, chicharon, pansit, Buffalo wings, Seafood & Meat Platter, pizza, sodas and beers for the after party snacks.

The chicharon was really crispy, crunchy and not oily. Even if it was pure skin, without the deadly chewy fats, it was still addicting most especially when dipped with their really sour vinegar.

The pansit bihon tasted bland for me. Good thing the vegetable and chicken toppings were generously placed, making it a bit acceptable.

The Buffalo Wings tasted like the famous Korean chicken from Bon Chon. It was sweet and a bit spicy all at the same time. Underneath it were yellow, crispy chip like flakes that actually tasted delicious for me.

The Seafood & Meat Platter has Grilled Tuna Belly, BBQ, Fried Chicken, Squid and Onion Rings. Almost all the items tasted bland and that made me sad. I needed to pour in so much soy sauce and vinegar in each of them for them to be bearable. It's as if the marinade wasn't enough for them and the salt and pepper weren't spread well.

The Cheese & Pepperoni Pizzas were just OK for me though it felt like they weren't freshly made. The crust tasted old and as if they were just re-heated.

Anyway, I appreciate how accommodating and attentive their servers were in dealing with our concerns. Good thing they were so flexible in letting us extend more hours, from 12AM-3AM even if we were the last customers already. Cheers to their Magic Sing as it brought out the crazy in each of us. Videoke sessions are always addicting after all!

First time to eat here its a PBA themed cafe nice place they have street court if want to play and basketball shooting arcade game. The place can accomodate up to 500 pax and function rooms good venue for small and big event. The food is great papa salad or paco salad is great good combination of veggies pasta and pizza is ok. What i reallly liked PBA sampler , fries , chicken , sisig, calamares in one plate. We are looking for a nice place to celebrate my sons bday and we decided to do it here his friends and cousins will surely enjoy this place and the food. The price is not cheap but the place and food serving will compensate.

I think this is the first ever PBA themed resto-bar in the country. The place is quite big as it can accomodate 400 people more or less. It has 30 LED tvs and a big ass screen which broadcasts live PBA games commercial free. It also has 3 big function rooms and a basketball half court where baller wannabes can shoot hoops. Perfect place to watch games with the barkada over a round of beers. The food though can still be improved. I ordered the beauty parlor ( tri colored sliders with a burger patty, corned beef and beef tapa on each burger). Sliders were juicy but bland. Good thing it came with a generous amount of fries as sidings. My verdict: if you want to feel the PBA vibe, this the right place, otherwise you can still enjoy the game with beer and sinful sisig at your favorite carenderia.
