For the SM Megamall Food Sale, our preferences to visit were extra-ordinary food to pig-out. When we were starting to do some look-out, Gumbo is our first choice.
Gumbo Restaurant is located at Mega Atrium area of SM Megamall at the 2nd floor. This was my first time to dropped by to this area where places of food to eat were a lot of selection.
Since this is a Food Sale, we made it a point to be early on the said restaurant considering it is also Friday and anticipating the long weekend ahead. There would be many people around who would really avail it.
Gumbo is a sister company of Burgo’s Restaurant serving “New Orlean Food Taste”. Famous are Jambalaya and Cajun dishes.
Expect a colorful ambiance around even it is small with waiters/waitresses wearing those colorful hair dress and beads to feel those New Orlean Mardi Grass.
What I will be sharing with you is a some sort of photo essay on the dishes I have tasted with Gumbo. These food were also highly recommended by their restaurant supervisor and considered to be best-sellers.
While waiting for our food to be served, a FREE appetizer of sliced bread and olive oil were served to us.
Banana Bracer and Watermelon Shake were the preferred refreshing beverages for the whole meal. I enjoyed more the Watermelon Shake, not to sweet and fresh in taste. Price each is P 155.00.
Clam Chowder for starter is very thick soup and a bit salty. The bread served as a bowl can be also eaten as a partner in the soup. Price is P 145.00.
Four Season is a bunch of fruit salad like slices of kiwi, orange, grapes and peaches with slices of ham tossed in lettuce topped with vinaigrette. All fresh and among the dishes, this is what I enjoyed more. Price is P 425.00.
Big servings for Calamares for P 395.00 – chunk slices of squid rings dipped in tartar sauce and has those crispiness in each bite.
Seafood Jambalaya is a free dish one can avail in the SM Megamall’s Mega Food Sale. It is like a paella with the mix of all those seafood and spices. Overall, bit salty for me.
I enjoyed more the taste of Bourbon-Style Baby Back Ribs surrounded by barbeque sauce especially if it goes with mash potato and mixed vegetable. The servings of mixed vegetable is crunchy and all fresh to my taste buds. Price is P 595.00.
Grilled Chicken in breast is too thick for eating. But the white sauce that comes with it and combination of lemon juice, asparagus and tomato salsa made this dish remarkable in its taste.
Overall, I enjoyed my dining experience with Gumbo especially the resto staffs were very accommodating with your need.
Next time, would come back to try pizza and pasta combination.
