Hole in the Wall

IMG_2870-33

Late last year we kept on hearing about a new restaurant located at Makati and kept on hearing Hole in the Wall and first thing that popped up in our head, “sooo,what’s the name of the resto?” haha! But even before we heard of the place, we already discovered Scouts Honor and being such a sucker for cookies we had to go and try it out for ourselves.

Hole in the Wall is at the 4th floor of Century Mall, along Makati Ave., corner Kalayaan Ave. and yes, as we got there, we were searching for Scouts Honor and guess what? We were greeted by the sign “Hole in the Wall”!

The place has a homey and cozy vibe to it and it isn’t actually a food court nor a restaurant but more like a huge dining room with different dining table sets, each having it’s unique style to it.

To enjoy the food experience here, it be best to be in a group because the servings are enough for at least 2 people, unless you have a very big appetite. Plus, there are a lot of delicious meals to try and one visit isn’t enough to enjoy it all.

PHOBOBO

Sweet Chilli BBQ (Php 320)

Not really a fan of Vietnamese dishes but we could make an exception with their  Sweet Chilli BBQ dish. It’s a bowl with grilled pork strips, spring rolls, veggies and vermicelli noodles with a dash of peanut sauce. At a glance, it doesn’t look appetizing but as soon as all those ingredients are mixed together, it’s absolutely delicious. It has a sweet and nutty flavor with a meaty and fresh bite to it.

Mister Delicious

Classic Corned Beef Rueben (Php 420)

On our second visit, I had my cousins come along to try it out as well and to also try out the other food spots. My cousins opted to try out Mister Delicious that offers mostly stacks of sandwich slices with all sorts of delicious goodness added to it.

BAD BIRD

Bad Bird is a big hit with the foodie crowd, which meant delicious food awaits. Too bad, on our first visit the line already reached the other side of the world haha. The saddest part of it, was that we were willing to fall in line but it just had to be us who could no longer be accommodated huhu, tears fell right where I stood, feeling so envious of the person that was the last in line… hahaha just kidding!

On our second attempt, we went straight to Bad Bird and we were second to the last, what a sigh of relief haha. So, was it worth a tear? It sure was! A truly bad bird but a little pricy for fried chicken. The chicken was moist and juicy with a crispy and flavoful coating. You can choose from waffles, corn or dirty rice to partner with the chicken. We tried it out with waffles and had an additional plate of corn on a cob.

SCOUTS HONOR

Last but certainly not the least, DESSERT! What we really came to try out. What caught our attention was the “make your own cookie mix”  and yes they offer a variety of flavored milk as well.

We got to try different variants of the cookie. You can have it soft and chewy or a little crunch to it as well. You also get to choose from a variety of toppings and up to two types of cookie dough. Some of what we tried were too sweet but then that’s why cookies are always great with a glass of cold milk.

Hole-in-the-Wall-10

If you want to make your own cookie, order their Craft Cookie set. You get to choose from a selection of cookie doughs and so far we’ve tried their basic chewy cookie, peanut butter cookie and even their molasses oatmeal cookie. Then next you get to choose three toppings and some of what we’ve tried were marshmallows, reeses peanut butter cups, white chocolate and peanut brittle (who would have thought that could be partnered with a cookie!).

IMG_2875-30

We would recommend to partner it with plain milk but then that’s just how we prefer it but just to give it a try, we ordered their Salted Caramel flavored milk. It taste alright but it didn’t really go well with our cookie creation. Some of the toppings that we picked didn’t match the cookie dough hahaha I guess we suck at cookie combinations but then we did hit a few winners as well, basic chewy dough was our fave. To be safe, they also offer ready made cookies of different flavors.

Overall, we enjoyed what Hole in the Wall offers, a little pricey but some worth coming back for. There are a lot more food spots but our stomach couldn’t handle anymore mouth-watering dishes.

    I was wondering what is a hole in the wall. Why did a resturant adopt such a name?

      usually when we hear that phrase, its usually an unusual restaurant hidden somewhere around town. 🙂 They made their own version more high end and composed of different food finds 😀

    That hardly looks like the holes in the wall restaurants I know. Too bad you did not mention the prices. But I already feel these are expensive. I am sure the kids will enjoy the cookie thing, but how much is that?

    There’s always so many people at Hole in the Wall on weekends, which is a good sign, of course, but it has kept us from going and and trying the food out. Must plan a trip on a weekday. I am super convinced by your photos. Lol.

    • timjuls
      March 9, 2015

      Yup, better try it on a weekday. The place is super packed during the weekends, even at 10pm the place is still crowded, especially Bad Bird! haha
