A good dining experience generates word of mouth marketing on behalf of the company. That’s why I wanted to share to you our recent dining experience with my colleagues at Mian Restaurant located at Marriott’s Grand Ballroom. Actually, I heard good reviews about the Mian through my friends too.
Top quality food, wonderful ambiance and excellent staff. These are the key points I’ve always been looking for whenever I go to a restaurant in search for another good dining experience.
I believe everything depends on the first contact between the customer and the restaurant. I choose where to eat based on the ambiance, the interior, and the friendly staff. Basically the present mood of the restaurant for it sets the tone of the customers or tells them how to feel. We came into the Mian with what I’ve been looking for. Friendly staff welcomed us as we entered, elegant dining area, and a good lighting perfectly set our mood. The color scheme of the restaurant promotes a positive aura among us and brings excitement to have our order.
For starters, we ordered pork jiaozi, a Chinese chorizo with soy calamansi lime dip and shrimp lumpiang sariwa. Colleagues really loved the Mian’s version of shrimp lumpiang sariwa. Good choice to start the Mian experience.
Next thing to arrive was the Noodle Bowl. Chef’s Beef Noodle and Braised Pork Belly really excite me. I’m a noodle lover and I’m sure people like me will get hook with Chef’s Beef Noodle.
Next is the Rice Bowl, which I believed the must try. We had Beef Caldereta and Pork Adobo, these two were my favorites. We all enjoyed how the preparation of the food was made, the tenderness of the meat was a real score, and the flavorful taste was just so perfect. You can’t go wrong with the Rice Bowl choices.
So much enjoying the food, we haven’t noticed that it was about to finish when our dessert served on the next table. Halo halo it is! Came to our surprise, our halo-halo was also served in a very large bowl and we was really mouth watering. Shaved ice and evaporated milk to which are added with various boiled sweet beans, jello, ube halaya, ice cream and leche plan. A balance of sweetness and appetizing ingredient made this the all – time Filipino favorite dessert.
It was really a rewarding time for us all of us, such been a busy and tough week at the office. It was a good choice that we had spent a sumptuous lunch at the Mian Restaurant.
