We’re at the newest mall ever hit in Davao City, thanks to Zobel de Ayala’s for having an Ayala Mall in Davao. I am the one among of the thousands of crowd during the soft opening last May 12, 2011 and i will be posting my pictures here in my blog real soon.
On May 18, 2011 was the opening of the two new restaurants concept in davao at Abreeza Mall the T.G.I. Friday’s and Italiannis. It was owned by Bistro Group of Restaurant Concepts, some of the restaurant they owned was Fish and Co. , Pig Out, the new Krazy Garlik, Flapjacks and BillyRock Bar and Restaurant.
Bistro group restaurants is not new to me, I featured them in my previous blog, last 2009 i blog Billy Rock Bar and Restaurant along Shangrila, link, http://vinz8000.wordpress.com/2009/08/17/billy-rock-bar-and-restaurant-shangri-la-plaza/, In 2010 I blog about Flapjacks in Greenhills Shopping Center, link, http://vinz8000.wordpress.com/2010/04/30/flapjacks-greenhills-shopping-center-complex-san-juan-city/ .
Today’s blog it’s all about T.G.I. Fridays, a little bit of history T.G.I. Fridays began operation in 1994, with the opening of TGI Friday’s, the very first American casual dining chain in the Philippines and finally it’s here in Davao City.
The restaurant was located at Ground Floor in Abreeza Mall, We were there last saturday on lunchtime, luckily there are vacant table available for us and the waiter quickly handed us the menu, it was an festive atmosphere, inside there are a life size sculpture of Superman, outside there was an life size sculpture of marilyn monroe, mini size statue of liberty and the moonman armstrong, truly its an american inspired theme on a american dining restaurant. I’ve heard that their menu prices are adjusted lower for davao city.
We ordered their best seller Jack Daniel’s Glazed Ribs at 495.00 and a must try Jack Daniel’s Salmon at 595.00. We also ordered soup of a day at 95.00 and their best seller smoothies the Gold Medalist at 165.00 each.
I understand it was in their soft opening while i waited for my orders to arrive, i’m observing some waiter and waitress are so panicky and they are not so organized when taking orders with customers, some orders has been delayed, coz they are not listening to our food orders well. Finally our orders arrived by 30 minutes it took too long but I understand the situation coz there are a lot of diners in this place.
The food was excellent, the taste was very good, very sumptuous meal and I really love it, perfect and the bill is pricey at 1,666.61 pesos for two net with 10% service charge.
