This is one of our favourite Filipino (comfort) food restaurant. Ordered gising gising, general's chicken, spicy squid and beef tapa. Everything was really good. I also like their crispy tilapia, lechon kawali and binagoongan and a lot more. Very affordable prices. Servers are also nice and quick.

Recipes by Café Metro has been at Resorts World Manila for quite a while now and I am not surprised seeing that a lot of people are here given that it's one of the restos in this mall that has cheaper prices compared to other restos.

It's my 2nd time to eat here in this mall and I was quite disappointed with what I got. I ordered the Garlic Chicken Rice Meal and was sad with the taste of the dish.

It was too bland, no taste at all! Given that it's seasoned with much garlic, I wasn't able to taste any flavor in the dish so I asked for some soy sauce and vinegar to give it some life.

Rice was served generously. The complimentary iced tea was fine too but I hope they could improve in giving tastiness to their meals.

PS Do not sit near the doors. The air con's really cold and it may make you feel uncomfortable.

Service was really really bad 128528 We were really hungry after watching the play so we wanted something fast and good. Recipes has always been a favorite and service is always fast (unfortunately, this is not true in this branch 128527) so I suggested we eat here.

Since Anthony's allergic to anything with gata and does not like tilapia, we ordered something else -- General's chicken (225) then we also tried the Tofu with Garlic Sauce (140). Plus one garlic rice. 128513

We have this rule to never follow up. But we were surprised to see that the orders of the other table came first. WHYYYY. Unfortunately, we were waiting for nothing. They forgot to place our order. 128552128534 Other tables were almost done eating and we haven't even started yet. 128546128548

To compensate, they gave us one free garlic rice. Wow, thank you. 128530 Because of the incident, we did not fully enjoy our dinner. The tofu was too plain and there's nothing garlicky about it. The chicken was different -- It tasted minadali. 128531 The garlic rice was good, mas lasang garlic kesa sa tofu. 128527

When my family goes to Resortsworld, there's a big chance we'd be dining here! 128522 It's more affordable than most of the F&B establishments plus their food tastes delicious! You'll never go wrong with the items on on their menu with the stars! 127775127775127775

Most dishes are great tasting like Generals' chicken, gising-gising. I just wish they'd put more meat in their kare-kare. It's mostly vegetables, "tuwalya", and odd beef parts.

Like what kuya Patrick B said, there's no waiting counter.

We ordered prawn tempuras, liempo with kangkong, and chicken curry. The server said na each serving's good for two, but it seemed na good for one lang siya.

The chicken curry, for me, was bland. Parang kulang ng curry powder, haha. I was expecting it to be spicy kasi maraming sili.

The liempo with kangkong was just okay, although I didn't eat the kangkong, haha. (Don't get me wrong, I like kangkong! Only that I didn't like its smell kanina.)

The tempura somehow made up for the disappointment. The prawns were huge kaso tatlo lang, mas marami yung veggies.

Price range: P150 - P300. Di siya sulit for me. Mah tummeh ain't happeh. 128546

PS: Bon Voyage koya Patrick B & ate Mary Rose L! 127886

First thing that I don't like in this place is that they don't have a waiting counter. So we had to go inside and call the attention of a wait staff.

We ordered lechon kawali, chicken curry, and prawn tempura. Serving size is small. The tempura is way better than Tokyo Tokyo though since they use real prawn. But nothing really special.

Not so sure if I'll ever return to this place.

This post is my official entry to the GGGG (General's Gising Gising Group) Dianne E, Neil R Carla M. I've been a fan of the GGG combo since my first dining experience at Recipes, but this is the first time that I'm actually reviewing it on |ooloo. 128522

Had dinner here after a loooooong drive from QC (Metro Manila traffic, is there no end to you?). I declared that upon arrival at the mall, I will eat whatever the hell I want (yes, including rice) and Ton V cannot give me grief about it!!! Hmp!

Ton can't complain anyway because this is the first time I chose a Filipino restaurant. Whenever we're together I would usually choose Italian, which he doesn't like. Hahaha! 128523 or Mediterranean which he has learned to like. 128522

It's too bad, though, that my first review for this restaurant had to be for a so-so experience: gising-gising was superb and creamy as how I remembered it to be, but the General's Chicken was hella bitin. The serving was so small and the chicken didn't taste very fresh. 128530 it was kinda rubbery. I know it's drenched in sauce in all, but I remember the dish to have a slight crunch because of the breading.

Oh well. The sauce was delicious anyway, and I finished it off. I even ordered an additional dish - Spicy Squid - because nabitin nga ako and I was still hungry. It was ok. Teeny pieces of squid with a sweet and sour sauce, and a couple of peppers to add spice, I guess?! Ugh. I hate sweet and sour.

Our waiter, Doods, was very friendly though. But I noticed that he uses the same jokes on all of the customers --

Ton: Doods, pahingi rin kami ng water.
Doods: on the rocks?
Me and Ton: ah. Hahaha!

I heard him repeat this joke to the ones at the next table. LOL. Good effort. 128540

Been a while since we ate here. Actually not a fan but my family love the food here.

So anyway we got our usual orders---

General Chicken
- yum

Fried Tilapia
- yum especially if you soak it in the dipping sauce provided

Gising Gising
- not a fan of coco milk based viands so this is mehh

Lechon Kawali (my order)
-this came with sautéed kang kong
-asked the server for lechon sauce which they freely served. Yey! The serving was too fatty though so I was only able to eat 1/3 since I had to cut off the fats hahaha
-when I got to the kangkong part, I asked for bagoong but the server said they charge extra for it... Hassle

Oh well, but all in all, food was good

Recipes is a restaurant with a different approach. Its dishes are unique and absolutely delicious! I recommend these dishes: General's Chicken, Gising-Gising and Crispy Tilapia. The food's affordable but it's quality is really good!

Been gushing about this place to my parents because I've recently dined at Recipes Greenbelt.

So when we went to Resorts World, I was happy to cajole my parents to eat here.

Oh! The experience was terrible. 128562

We ordered General's Chicken, Crispy Tilapia, Kare-Kare and Seafood Rice.

There were strands of hair in the rice and the Kare-Kare. Yuck yuck yuck! 128561

They did replace the meal but to think we're already halfway through when we discovered it.

After which, I sent a message including my complaint about the resto through their fan page. The brand manager just apologized and said they will improve their service.

Still, I'm not going to dine there again. Service was bad and food is not clean. 128078

Just check the picture.

It's 1030pm. The restaurant closes 12 midnight.

We are still eating.

The tables beside us and the tables in front of us are already tucked away (see photo).

They were sweeping and mopping while we are still eating.

Worst experience any customer can have.

Ill never go back here ever again and I suggest you don't try this restaurant too.

Place : a bit crowded, the tables are quite close to each other.

Food: Adobo flakes with egg and rice P180 - they were literal with the flakes. It was really really crunchy. I can no longer taste the adobo flavor.

Korean BBQ Short Ribs P175 - It was glazed with yummy sauce but the serving was filled with fats and less pork.

Pork Binagoongan P215 - It was served with super maasim mangga 128077 . It was also flavorful but a bit oily.

Service: Average :)

128078 No dessert in the menu :(
