The New SM Foodcourt in SM City Dasmariñas

Whenever I'm in an SM mall and can't decide where to eat and what I want to eat, SM Foodcourt has always been there to save my meal. While I enjoy visiting fast food chains and casual dining restaurants, I can't argue that when it comes to variety, SM Foodcourt simply offers more and for more affordable prices. And recently, I got to take a look, feel and taste of the new and improved SM Foodcourt in SM City Dasmariñas.
SM City Dasmarinas

If you've been a regular reader, you'd know that I live in the northern part of the Metro. So although I've already been to Cavite, this was my first time to visit SM City Dasmariñas ever. While this post will focus on the newly-renovated SM Foodcourt, I have to say that I liked how both the facade and the inside of SM City Dasmariñas looked like. The mall was spacious, and it even has an Annex housing higher end shops and restaurants.

SM City Dasmarinas Food Court

Almost every SM mall in the country has its own SM Foodcourt. And in the case of SM City Dasmariñas, their foodcourt has always been around since the first year they opened, back in 2004. Although I've never been to the mall prior to this visit, it was so nice to hear that its SM Foodcourt has already gotten a face lift. From an old and obsolete style, the SM Foodcourt in SM City Dasmariñas now enjoys a new facade. While renovations are usually nothing special, I was so surprised to learn that it was completed in just 43 days, and take note, with food tenants still maintaining operations.

Aside from the new tiles, new lights and new booths, tables and chairs as well as other fixtures will also be replaced with stylish ones. Now, with a promise of a better ambiance plus free Wi-Fi, let's have a look at the SM City Dasmariñas Foodcourt tenants.

There are currently 6 food stalls in the foodcourt: Pinoy Pyesta, Inihaw Express, Sizzling Plate, Kusina ni Gracia, Cavite Fiesta and Senlek Thai Noodles which booth still hasn't been done yet, and which temporary stall I failed to take a photo of.

Aside from these 6 food stalls, there were also food carts and take-out counters: Master Siomai, Waffle Time, Chichabog, El Bonito's Pizza, Taiwan Pearl Share, Buko ni Fruitas, Turk's Shawarma, Mongkok Express, Potato Corner and Oi Hong Kong Noodles, as well as a Beer Station which is already a staple in all SM Foodcourts.

We got to try out different items from different food tenants. I won't be detailing anymore how every dish tasted, but I sure got really full after eating everything!

Everything was good enough, especially for a foodcourt meal. However, the Soft-Shell Crablets really stood out. I didn't know Inihaw Express offers them, and I found myself addicted! As for the most disappointing, I think I'll have to give it to the Pad Thai. While it looked really appetizing, it was dull and lacked the flavors I love in this Thai favorite. I think if they make it more savory, zesty and spicy, the taste will then match the presentation.

Buko ni Fruitas Buko Pandan from Buko ni Fruitas

I know I said I was already full, but what's a meal without dessert right? So to cap off our lunch at SM Foodcourt, I got myself a Buko Pandan Salad from Buko ni Fruitas. As expected, they really used fresh coconut for every order, and you'll see how the food cart attendant painstakingly makes each and every order a la minute. I felt quite guilty, but I can't argue that freshly-made salads like this is really better than chilled pre-made ones.

Aside from good food, good ambiance, free Wi-Fi and great affordable prices, SM Foodcourt also offers this cool Yard Cup for just P99. Plus, from October 13 to November 30, you can enjoy a P30 cash discount for a minimum single receipt food and beverage purchase of P150 with any Coca-Cola product. Now, isn't that a great treat?

  12. I usually steer clear of foodcourts because of the hygiene factor. But I guess, there are always exceptions to any rule :)
