A Red Apron BirthdayPosted: 1 February 2014
Red Apron is my latest restaurant find in Ibn Batutta. It’s funny how the mall started upgrading their food options just when I left Discovery Gardens. ANYWAY…
We celebrated this very cute and handsome little boy’s first birthday here yesterday. Jayrob is Karen and Jay’s second child. Kudos to Karen for all the effort – the party was a success! I know some things didn’t go as planned dear but don’t be too hard on yourself girl! We had lots of fun!!! To think you just planned and executed wonderfully your first daughter’s party less than 30 days ago and then this! (clap, clap and slow clap!)
Now ON to more serious stuff – THE FOOD. hehe
The restaurant is trying to resurrect the cafeteria style of dining where you get your food, pay at the counter and sit. It’s a good concept if you are in a rush to have lunch/dinner but the place is also welcoming for a leisure coffee morning with friends. Karen said it was their first time to host a party in their restaurant and there are still some/a lot of areas to improve on.
But because the staff was very accommodating,some things can be overlooked. They even learned how to make balloon trellis from YouTube to make the place look festive. They even prepared a dance number for the celebrant which gave the party a rockin’ vibe. Special mention to the FILIPINO staff which took care of us – thanks for being so warm and friendly.
The food was great! Everything was Y-U-M-M-O!! (expressed the way Rachel Ray would). I loved everything! (as in). I couldn’t stop eating! The Kare-Kare, meatloaf and chicken plus the oriental rice was all gone in 60 seconds from my plate. Even the kid’s meal of pansit, fries,pizza and nuggets was good, I’m lucky I got two for my boys haha.
We will definitely come back to try more. If you are looking for a good alternative to the Ibn Batutta food court which may get chaotic on the weekends. Give Red Apron a try, it’s nice and cozy won’t break the bank.
*I thought I took more photos but will probably grab some from Facebook when people start posting.
Again Happy happy Birthday to our dearest baby Jayrob. May the Lord bless you in this wonderful life you have ahead of you. Always listen to your parents, especially your mother (she’s always right!) hehe
Thank you for having us and sharing this special day with your family. I leave you with words from my four-year old “That was a fun night, mommy!” And indeed it was.
