A Different Kind of Kenny Rogers Dining Experience: Kenny's Roast & Grill

Kenny Roger's Roasters is a staple in almost all major shopping malls here in the Metro.  With their usual servings of roasted meats plus mouth-watering sides served in a fast food format, you can bet their stores are always filled to maximum capacity during lunch and dinner services.

But bet you haven't heard of a new concept they have in place at Power Plant Mall?

While the family was strolling along Rockwell center, we came across Kenny's Roast & Grill, a more upscale version of Kenny Roger's Roasters.  Being the curious cats that we were, the family decided to have lunch here.

As mentioned, Kenny's Roast & Grill is not your ordinary fast food joint.  Catering to a mostly upscale clientele (Duh! Rockwell 'to!), they have a more formal ambiance and offer refined versions of their usual fare.

Love the lamps!

Aside from the differences in interiors, this more upscale version offers the usual menu items coupled with an eat-all-you-can soup and salad bar.

Unfortunately, their muffins are not included in the buffet.  Sorry all KR're only allowed 1 unless you willing to pay for extras.  =)

Menu options include Kenny's classic roast chicken (Php285).  Aside form the buffet soup and salad bar add-on, mashed potatoes (or rice) and grilled veggies are also included on the side.

A grilled chicken fillet (Php285) seasoned with thyme, rosemary and garlic is also a favorite among the patrons.

The chicken pieces are not your ordinary Kenny Roger's Roasters blend.  The flavors are much less subtle and not overpowering.  Just right.  Same with the gravy.  I guess they used a different mix for this.

Your grilled veggies, though, may come a little overcooked and limp.  So make sure to inform your servers beforehand to maybe tone the heat down a bit.  

I also have a comment on the service.  It was hard to call the attention of the servers when we needed anything (i.e. water, spoons, etc.) but they were fast enough in clearing our plates even though we had not asked for the bill yet!  I hate restos like that.

It's definitely a different Kenny Roger's Roasters dining experience.  =)

PH | Bang's Tony & Jackey Beauty Salon's Aqua Volume Rebond

I've always had ruly, unmanageable hair for as long as I can remember, hence the introduction of rebonding services here in PH is a blessing.  I've been having my hair rebonded or relaxed once a year since 2002.  It's an expense that I make sure is always included in the yearly luxury budget.

Whereas before I used to have my hair rebonded at a David's Salon (since they always deliver consistently great results), I had to stop and look to other establishments when they eventually jacked up their prices (what used to cost me Php3,000 is now priced at Php5,000 to Php6,000, depending on the branch!).  Too much for my already hurting wallet.  Hence, the need to try other salons.  I've been happy with the results, so far.

The one thing though. that always gets me though is how lifeless and limp my hair tends to look when newly treated.  It's always the case wherever I have my tresses done.  It will look it's best at least a month or 2 after treatment.  It was onl…

Style for Less: Ballerina Flats (Tory Burch vs Kamiseta)

Have you ever noticed how fashionable high-end items just keep on being reinvented by some other brand.  Well after having my eyes checked for fear of seeing doubles (normal daw sabi ni Doc), I decided to scour through the malls in search of fashion doppelgangers.

THE SPLURGE: Tory Burch's Reva ballerina flats (USD195 or around Php9,000)

When well-known American fashion designer Tory Burch released her line of Reva ballerina flats, it was an instant hit.  Known for its incredibly comfortable material and structure with a nicely padded sole and an elasticized heel, these babies made a killing and everyone wanted one. 

How to Apply for a Philippine Postal ID Card

I've said it once and I'll say it again, woe to the newly married woman who has, for years, have gotten so used to her surname only to find that a single (wedding) day, will change this familiarity forever.

I have to admit, it was not easy for me to adapt to a new surname, due mainly for professional reasons.  Throughout my profession career, I have been known by my maiden name and to have to inform all my contacts of the change was, well, too tiresome.  And so I decided to go the hypenated route and I eventually ended up with 2 surnames.  Such was the compromise!  =)
