It had been a while since our last visit to Robinsons Galleria

Although it is relatively near the family abode. We somehow always get sidetracked by either SM Megamall or Shangrila Plaza Mall.

Last week , we were privileged to have been invited by Mangan for a Food Tasting Event of their Valentines Day Menu and their best sellers

Its a Perfect Match P999

For only P999 for two Mangan diners get to enjoy the following : 

Suam na Tahong
Definitely a steal for lovers  who would love to celebrate the day of  hearts  for the whole month of February. The Suam sa Tahong warms the tummy in preparation for the mains. The mussels and clams were plump and fat and a joy to pop in your mouth.

a choice of Sizzling Chicken or
 Crispy Pork Adobo

The mains were simple yet hearty fare. Choose between either the chicken or the pork. Both were satisfying , delicious and filling

Everybody's Lumpia or
Ensaladang Talong

The perfect foil to the fried mains, the ensaladang talong is my choice of side. I loved how the grilled talong with mango and  onions cut through the richness of the protein. The downside to this was you will be wishing or ordering more cups of rice.

Everybody's lumpia although delicious on its own was just too much when paired with either chicken or pork. Fried on fried does not really sound appetizing to me.

Two Cups of Rice

Two Watermelon Shake

A refreshing drink, I could just chug gallons of these fruity drink all day long

Tibok Tibok

''Tibok-tibok usually anglicizes as carabao milk pudding, is a  Filipino dessert pudding made primarily from carabao milk and ground soaked glutinous rice. It originated from the province of Pampanga. It has a soft jelly-like texture and is topped with latik before serving'' - Wikipedia

My first thought was pannacotta?  It looked like pannacotta and jiggled like one but the difference lay in the carabao milk and ground soaked glutinous rice ingredients.


Classic Bibingka
I loved how freshly made it tasted  and felt on my palate. It was fluffy and soft with cheesy and salted egg notes.Do not forget to eat it with the grated dessicated coconut


Another classic dish, palabok is a perennial favorite. Mangan's version is traditional through and through. Brought back childhood memories growing up in La Huerta Paranaque

Piniritong Hito at Buro
That burong hipon was the clincher. It married well with that humongous cat fish. I never saw cat fish presented that way  ie like a daing na bangus.


Nothing can beat the pakbet- bagnet combination.

Seafood Kare Kare

I loved the kare kare sauce. I prefer the oxtail though instead of the seafood kare kare


Mangan  for me and the family never grows old. It is always a joy rediscovering and reconnecting with an old favorite.

Perhaps the secret to their success is their consistency and affordability. Whichever branch of the restaurant you find yourself in, you know you will get the same delicious dishes you are craving for without fail every time.

Check it out and let me know how it turns out for you

Mangan is located at  Level 2 Robinsons Galleria Ortigas Quezon City
