Restaurant Review: Holy Cow

Published on February 28, 2010

I wasn’t really impressed the first time I tried Holy Cow. We decided to give it another shot thinking that things might have actually improved since it just opened its Robinson’s Place Manila branch when we first visited. Service was definitely better because it only took them approximately 5 minutes to serve our orders.

Boyet decided to try root beer float. It’s typical root beer with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Next to arrive was the County Mushroom Soup coming with a slice of garlic bread. It was fine but I honestly think that it was just gravy disguising as soup. The soup had a nice creamy texture and a sour aftertaste from the mushroom.

Lonestar Grilled Porkchop was Boyet's choice. The thinly sliced pork chops were marinated and perfectly grilled. The steak sauce was the ideal accent for the dish as it gave more flavor and aroma to the pork chops. Boyet opted to get plain rice and potato croquet on the side.

I wasn’t really hungry so I stayed away as much as I could from the steak. I decided to get a pasta dish which I later on regretted. I ended up eating the pork chops because I didn’t like what I got. The menu said that the pasta has beef sauce topped with mozzarella, quickmelt and parmesan cheese. It was a feast in my eyes but exactly the opposite for my taste buds. It was bland that I had to ask for extra parmesan cheese. But my effort was useless.

  1. "The soup had a nice creamy texture and a sour aftertaste from the mushroom." Sour in a mushroom is not a good sign, I think. That means it's not fresh anymore. ; (
