The Loft and Autospa: Pamper and Dine

Whoever thought of putting up a carwash and restaurant/bar is a genius. I have not interviewed the owner personally, but as you can see, this dual business sure is thriving.

Let's start with the AutoSpa. Like the name suggests, you can pamper your car spa-style. They offer different packages for the carwash you need. So it's not just the ordinary soap and wash, they even have under the chassis wash and engine wash. Complete with wax for a shiny new car finish! Plus they also do a little car servicing.

But this site is all about food, so let's visit THE LOFT. Simply put, you can relax under an air conditioned restaurant as you wait for your car. However, they welcome customers even without cars.

Restaurant by day and a light bar by night. It's a place you can chill with your friends. They do have a loft indeed but it's closed during the day.

The building is walled with glass windows but if it gets too hot, there are these roman shades(?) to keep the sun rays out. The interior is well decorated too. Gotta love that long bar.

They serve various dishes, but what caught my eye was the Calamares Fritos and Texas Smoked Pork Ribs! We ordered an additional serving of rice and a tall glass of Lemon Cucumber soda.

Here are a few images of our meal before I get to the review.

These Calamares Fritos are really crunchy and the squid is perfectly cooked! Glad it came with a dip because to be honest, the taste was kind of bland. Perhaps they forgot to sprinkle a bit of salt? The serving is quite good for the current price of ₽170.00 (as of June 2016). Definitely would order this with beer!

Up next is the Texas Pork Ribs, which is supposed to be one of their house specialties. I have to say, I am quite disappointed. Mainly because the sauce didn't sink into the meat, if you know what I mean. Technically or culinarily speaking, it seems that the ribs were boiled to become soft, which is a good thing because it almost fell off the bones! But where is the stock after that? I couldn't taste it in the sauce. Oh well. The side dishes of mashed potato and vegetables are quite good though.

Maybe I need to try other dishes to give them another chance. But for now, I would rate them as:

AMBIANCE 4/5
TASTE 3/5
SERVICE 4/5
VALUE FOR MONEY 5/5

The Loft is located along Lucao Road, Dagupan City, Panasinan

It was my first time to try THE LOFT since i am new in Pangasinan. I and my friends were really excited to try what was on their Menu. We asked the crew what is their best seller for Pizza. She replied "All of our Pizzas" so we asked her which among those pizzas are usually on top of the line that is being bought by many customers? She said the Mexican Cajun Chicken Pizza. With the information that was given we requested an order of it. While waiting for the pizza we have also tried one of their appetizers (Sour Cream Potato Chips), I can say it was really awesome. Next on their menu are Choices of Pastas. We ordered Chili Seafood Pasta - A must try and their Carbonara. While we were eating, one of the crew came and said that we have to cancel our Pizza since they don't have some of the ingredients. So she gave an alternative which is the quesadilla. So we waited for 15mins but sadly she came back asking for us to cancel again since they don't have a cheese. With our dismay we ended up eating small meal and was not that satisfied with the kind of service they have provided.

Fue mi primera vez para tratar el LOFT ya que soy nuevo en Pangasinan. Yo y mis amigos estaban muy emocionados de probar lo que era en su menú. Pedimos al equipo cuál es su mejor vendedor para la Pizza. ¿Ella respondió: "Todos de nuestras Pizzas" así que pedimos su que entre esas pizzas son generalmente encima de la línea que está siendo comprada por muchos clientes? Dijo que la Pizza de pollo Cajun mexicano. Con la información que se solicitó una orden de ella. Mientras espera la pizza también hemos probado uno de sus aperitivos (crema agria patatas fritas), puedo decir fue realmente impresionante. A continuación en su menú son opciones de Pastas. Pedimos Pasta de mariscos Chile - debe probar y la Carbonara. Mientras nos estábamos comiendo, uno del equipo vino y dijo que tenemos que cancelar nuestra Pizza ya que no tienen algunos de los ingredientes. Así que ella dio una alternativa que es la quesadilla. Así que esperamos 15 minutos pero lamentablemente llegó pidiendo volver a cancelar otra vez ya que no tienen un queso. Con nuestra consternación terminamos comiendo comida pequeña y no estaba satisfecho con el tipo de servicio que han proporcionado. Espero que algunas cajas de sugerencias donde los clientes pueden proporcionar algunos comentarios de mejora.
