SM Mall of Asia is such a big mall with lots of dining places to choose from. A lot of them are already existing in other establishments but one of its unique restaurants is Unit 8 Cafe located near the bayside of the mall.
Fellow food bloggers and I were invited a few weeks ago to taste the delicious dishes that Unit 8 has to offer. Basically their dishes are a mixture of different international cuisines. So let’s start the foodtrippin’!
The Fruity Wonton salad is very good most especially if you’re health conscious. The wonton is made of cream cheese. It’s served with raspberry vinaigrette on the side.
The Chili Crusted tofu is served with sweet chili sauce on the side. Under the tofu cubes are fried noodles which is good for pica-pica.
Eggplant Rollini is one of my favorites here in Unit 8. This is a very unique dish and I didn’t even realize that it’s eggplant until someone told me that it’s made of eggplant. This is somewhat like canneloni but instead of pasta, they used eggplant.
Here’s another favorite: Fish Fillet in Light Soy Sauce. I loved the way the fish was prepared. It’s very tender and juicy.
Their Beer Battered Fish and Chips are probably one of the best Fish and Chips I’ve tasted here in Manila. I loved their tartar sauce.
The barbequed chicken is very tasty. I know it’s a common dish among us Filipinos but I seldom encounter a barbequed chicken that is very tender and tasty. Plus, it’s already deboned so I didn’t need extra effort to eat it. It’s also served with a cup of white rice.
This is also one of my favorites. There are 3 dips to choose from: soy-vinegar, tartar sauce and spicy mango aioli. The White Bait is deep fried until it’s crispy. This is a very good way to start your meal here in Unit 8.
Fried Lasagna Rolls is another favorite of mine. This is just like Eggplant Rollini except that this is really made of lasagna.
See how big their serving is? This barbequed pork can be shared by 2 people (except if you’re really, really hungry). The pork was marinated for a long time though I preferred the barbequed chicken more than this.
One of their unique shakes was the Kamias Lychee Shake. I expected that it was sour but actually it tastes more of lychee. It’s very refreshing. Actually, their shakes are made from real fruits. I ordered the grape shake and I could feel the texture of the grape skin in my tongue.
Ok, now we go to their very sinful desserts. The Frozen Mango Tango wasn’t that sweet in fact, it’s just right. It has toasted cashews in some layers topped with whipped cream. Yum!
Their Tiramisu is probably my favorite dessert among all the desserts I’ve tasted here in Unit 8. I can’t explain. It’s heavenly.
For the White Chocolate Bread Pudding, it’s served with whiskey sauce and topped with vanilla ice cream on top. I liked the feeling of tasting hot and cold at the same time while I’m eating this dessert.
Unit 8 is one of the most unique restaurants I’ve ever dined in my entire life. The food adventure is different because of the uniqueness of their dishes. This is a place where you can enjoy good food while sharing it with your families and relatives. The ambiance is very relaxing because of the abundance of light green around.
