When World Topps in Timog closed, I got so sad, because I will never get to eat my favorite salpicao anymore...

But not anymore because I found a place where Salpicao is sooo good that I can now forget world topps ever existed hahahaha 128077🏼 and that Jambalaya is good too!!!

The place is small but cozy with warm lighting. Waiters were very attentive and informative.

I sure am coming back for more of that salpicao!!! 128077🏼128077🏼128077🏼

BACK RIBS: juicy,tender,flavourfull ribs,laced with house special souce. The taste is fine and classy . They should serve the ribs with thin layer of souce (a thick souce makes it salty) anyway they serve the dish with a cup of extra souce, butterd veggies and mash potato .The price is quite high and not commensurate for the serving .

Sorry for the dark / crappy photo. We were supposed to go to Jack's Loft (Il terrazo) but I didnt know that it already closed. So, we decided to check the POS building. And so, we found poppins

I ordered Black Russian (Vodka and kahlua). It was pretty good only thing I didnt like was it had too many ice. Also, we ordered San Miguel Zero which ofcourse frozen

Good - Great Cocktails / Drinks; they also served us complimentary popcorns
Great - Excellent Ambiance: nice interiors, cozy and relaxing. Great place to hangout / catch up with friends
Great Service: servers were courteous and attentive
Great Value for Money

We went to Poppins the night I finished my thesis defense. I was excited to try it since I love trying new restaurants with nice interiors & good looking food.

When we got there, I quickly noticed their dj area. It's so cool. I love the fact that the lights are dimmed because they have lighted candles on every table.

We order their caesar salad (190php), their creole bacon ____ (i forgot the 3rd word) (220php) and their Surf n' Turf (480php). Since I'm always a judger of caesar salad, I think I already know what a good caesar salad tastes like. Their caesar salad was alright. Their caesar salad dressing was kulang (i didn't bother to request for more dressing) that's why it tasted a bit matabang. I did not like the pasta that I ordered. Haha it's not for me. It's sour & idk I just didn't like it. Their surf n' turf included an australian rib eye steak, cajun shrimps & sweet potatoes. The steak was juicy but not as tender. It goes well with the bbq sauce. Their shrimps were fine, best with the sauce included in the dish. And the sweet potatoes was also fine.

So all in all, the place was nice & the food was fine. Will I come back? Maybe, so I can try their famous cocktails. Hehe.

Tried this place during their soft opening. I would definitely say that you'll get your money's worth. The food was good but nothing spectacular.

While waiting for the food, they will serve you butter popcorn. Too bad it was a bit "makunat" - Obviously not freshly popped.

APPETIZER
Poppins' Chiquee Poppers - Chicken croquettes with jalapeño, mozzarella and bacon centers served with sun-dried tomato jam and roasted pepper mayonnaise 128077

MAIN COURSE
Hickory Back Ribs - Served with haricot verts & skillet corn, and rice 128077 (Ribs was really juicy and tender)
Pesto and Walnut Crusted Salmon - Baked crusted salmon served with grilled asparagus and rice pilaf and a honey grapefruit glaze 128078 (The waiter failed to take note of this order. When it finally arrived, it was overcooked!)

DRINKS
Big Paul Apple - Fresh green apple and lime (According to my friend, this was too sweet)
Gab's Tea Fusion - Fresh cucumber and grapes 128077 (Very refreshing!)

Overall, I liked the food.

Went here back when they were still in their soft opening phase and they weren't so packed nor loud yet. So I'm not sure just how much things have changed since then.

The server we had was pretty impressive. He smiled a lot, refilled our drinks quickly and knew the menu well. He even asked us what we thought of our food.

That's rare nowadays so when you get a server like that, tip them well. Better yet, tell them they're doing a good job.128077

I ordered their Pesto and Walnut Crusted Salmon (Php 325) and it was pretty good. I love rice pilaf and I feel that anything eaten with it is delicious. It also had asparagus which added crunch and more "health" factor to this dish. Nice looking plate, too hehe.

Good food, good ambiance, good music and excellent service. 5 stars. 1108811088110881108811088

I should definitely go back to see how this place is doing now.

Speaking of meals with sweet potatoes (a.k.a. kamote), I totally forgot to review Poppins a while back!

I seem to enjoy _______ & chips meals. I could survive a meal without having rice, ohohoho. But anyway, I tried their fish and kamote fries/wedges. I was quite looking forward to the fries, since I enjoy BonChon's so much, but these were nothing like them. They were nowhere near sweet (but it's supposed to be a sweet potato! 128546), they weren't appetizingly orange, and...I dunno, I just didn't like em. 128148

The fish was good, though. The batter wasn't your crumby kind, which I liked for some reason, and the fish was tasty even without the dip. I tried the dip and it was pretty good, it had a nice tangy flavor to it that went well with the fish.

In terms of the ambience, I would probably prefer to come here during the day, when it would possibly be quieter. The acoustics weren't all that great, and it didn't help that the music was loud. The place is cute, though, bur again, it would probably look better during the day.

Service was okay, nothing too much to comment on about that. 128533

WOAH. the last time I ate here was just 2 months ago celebrating my boyfriend's birthday! #memories hahaha 10084 ^ le photo up there.

So my mom decided to eat dinner outside and told me to search for good restaurants near our place. yupp! I suggested a lot of restos and she was like "sa poppins na lang!" yessss naman mother pina-research mo pa ako :)) but it was a good decision after all. Poppins is a small resto if you're into a spacey one but the ambiance is nice, perfect for hangouts. they also show movies! omg last night they showed titanic <3 one of my fave movies. they also have a dj booth in the corner. last night's playlist was the bomb!!! singing through all the songs while eating :)) unleash the BALIW side of me hahahaha.

Anyways, so we ordered the chicken poppers for appetizer, caesar salad, vegetable soup and hickory baby back ribs... over-all I must say that the food was good but it lacks something! that I really can't explain @-) maybe some twists? Perks of being a CA student hahaha but yeah i really liked the whole gastrobar kind of setting. Thumbs up!

A newly opened gastrobar. My friends and i decided to try this out since we're looking for a good place to hangout. We were given free popcorn as appetizer.

Surf and turf
Beef was okay tender enough, what i didn't like is the kamote fries it tasted like it was reheated. 3/5

Chicken poppers
I was expecting this dish to be more tender and juicy. 3/5.

Shrimp (forgot the name)
Similar to tempura but the breading has coconut giving this dish a little twist. Btw you can enjoy this dish even more by adding a cup of poppins rice 4/5

Ribs-590
Really big can be shared by 2persons. Taste was okay. 3/5

*Just a spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go dooooown!* Unfortunately, I didn't quite enjoy eating at the themed gastropub as much as I enjoyed watching Mary Poppins as a kid. :(

I was most excited about the surf and turf for P400 and while it was good, it wasn't ZOMG this is awesome good. Serving size was pretty generous, but I found the shrimps kind of bland and the accompanying kamote fries a bit too tough.

Also got to try their chiquee poppers (as recommended by Em D -- I didn't enjoy it as much. The chicken was good but I was hoping for a bit more of a kick from the jalapeños (I could barely taste any!)

The Caesar Salad was... strange. I can't explain it! The Caesar dressing was just... not good. It lacked the tangy flavor I'm used to. I appreciate that the dressing was freshly made (I think! Coz it didn't taste like the store-bought stuff), but it wasn't very good. :(

But hey, hats off to the servers, they were pretty nice. As soon as I arrived, I was called by my name, meaning that the servers actually took note of my reservation! 128077
