This is one interesting resto we tried while we were in Robinson’s Place Manila yesterday. It says on their store name that it’s the “new pasta and rice experience” so we decided to check this place out.
The restaurant offers 28 combinations to choose from. So the basic thing is their teppanyaki grill choices. So here are the steps in eating in KXP:

- Seafood: Shrimps Teppanyaki ( Php 180), Fish Fillet ( Php 150) and Squid Teppanyaki ( Php 135)
Step 2: Choose your sauce
- Meat: Steak sauce or Teriyaki Sauce
- Seafood: Gambas Sauce or Teriyaki Sauce
Step 3: Choose your siding
- Pasta ( Herb pasta served with Garlic Bread)
- Rice ( Steamed rice served with Mixed Vegetable Teppan), one can add Php 25 to change to fried rice
They also have rice meals pastas that look interesting. These are the pasta meals: Mac and Cheese (Php 120), Italian Burger Melt ( Php 180), Crabstick Tempura on Aligue Pasta ( Php 175) and Bacon and Shitake Mushroom Linguine ( Php 170). Here’s the rice meals: Spicy tofu Sisig with Rice ( Php 95), Tuna and Mushroom Gratin Rice ( Php 160), Baked Shrimp Thermidor Rice ( Php 180) and Chicken Strips on Baked Tomato Rice ( Php 160).
We tried the Teppanyaki grill selections since it’s their specialty. For me, I ordered the Squid Teppanyaki with Gambas Sauce and Rice as my siding. As for Karla, she ordered Chicken Fillet Steak with Steak Sauce with Pasta as siding.
The Squid itself was tender, that’s important for me. As for the sauce it was somewhat weird that it tastes like tomato sauce. I was expecting it to be sauteed in garlic and olive oil. The taste is ok, it’s just that I am not used to gambas tasting like tomato sauce.
As for the chicken fillet, this one is delicious. The chicken was tender, the sauce was tasty. It actually matches the herbed pasta. However as for the garlic bread, it was actually hard. We were expecting it to be a bit soft.
Their KXP iced tea is a must try because it’s refreshing and of course it doesn’t taste like your normal ‘Nestea’ iced tea. I could actually taste the vanilla flavor in it.
They only have 1 branch which in Robinson’s Place Manila at the 2nd floor of the Midtown Wing.
