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.  =)
