FOODTRIP(103): Mesa, SM Megamall

Looking for a new place to eat on a rainy evening a few days ago, we came across Mesa at SM Megamall. I've been hearing lots of positive feed backs from customers who already dined at this place so was also curious if they really serve good dishes. 
Mesa serves different Filipino cuisines, not my usual go-to but was quite curious so I gave it a try. Went here for a dinner so place was a bit crowded already. There were still few seats available and luckily, we had a seat on a small area with a table. 

Menu was handed to use upon seating. Waiting time was for about 20 mins according to the staff. While waiting, I was able to observe the place at that time. It may look small outside, but the place can cater lots of customers especially at peak hours. They have lots of tables at chairs, and more seats inside. Knowing we ordered kinda lot, I asked one of the staffs of we can move to the other table (preferably seats with 2 tables together) since I find it hard to move with lot of foods place on our 1pc table. 

Btw, here's what we ordered: 

Kare Kare, Beef and Tripe (Php305) 
"Beef tripe and fresh vegetables cooked in a rich creamy peanut sauce" 
- Totally love their Kare kare version. First, their kare kare was very tasty, yummy and delish. The peanut butter taste was there and I like the smooth creamy peanut sauce. The servings were huge and good for sharing. 

Prawns, Sauteed with salted egg (Php295) 
- Not a fan of prawns but I liked this one! The salted egg and garlic (I'm not sure if it was garlic but it tasted liked one) on top on the prawns were a really good combinations. Very tasty and again, servings were a lot. 

Baked Scallops with Garlic Butter (Php225) 
"Scallops on a half shell with garlic butter compound" 
- I love scallops and butter, so imagine this two! Wow, just wow. The taste of butter along with the baked scallops were heaven! A must try! 

Garlic Rice/cup (Php45) 
- We find it a bit expensive for a cup of rice 

Pineapple Juice (Php65) 
- Normal pineapple juice. 

Overall, a bit pricey for a dinner meal but I think with the quality & quantity of the foods served, it's all worth it. Totally recommended for family, friends, balikbayans and even foreigners. :)
