Oysters and Ribs :)

New Orleans Bourbon Street Steaks & Oysters,Newport Mall

2/F Newport Mall, Resorts World Manila
Pasay City, Metro Manila

Just had a blast watching the movie "Lockout" at the amazing Newport Mall Cinema. <3 

And since I was all filled up with the complementary popcorn and soda, contemplating on what to have for dinner was hard to do at such time. ^^ Fortunately, the ample time walking around the grand mall in Resorts World was able to help me rule in and rule out restos before finally deciding to try out New Orleans. We had to take about 3 complete strolls of the 2nd and 3rd floors before my tummy got starved.

It was as posh a place as most of those seen in Newport. The brightest mix of colors was splashed all over the place giving it a ragged feel of outside streets. The one who waited on us was accommodating and enthusiastic enough to assist us in deciding which to select from their lovely menu.

I was thinking "light" and "healthy", so I decided to try out their bestseller salad, the NOLA caesar salad. It was as good as any caesar so I think I know why it sells best :)

Since their steaks and baby back ribs were too heavy (and costly), we decided to have one of their French Quarter Classics, which the waiter highly recommended. True enough, the Barbecued Beef Ribs served with pilaf rice was an amazing blend of smoke and charred meat. The serving was generous enough to be shared by two.

And of course, dinner at New Orleans would not be complete without trying out their delectable oysters. There was a good set of choices from Rockefeller to Chili Garlic. As for me, the cheesy person that I am, I opted to try out their Oysters Formaggio. It was a grand serving of oysters baked to their best and topped with liberal amount of cheese :) Who wouldn't want that?

My first time at New Orleans Bourbon Street Steaks and Oysters was indeed satisfying. It wasn't cheap but I had good returns :) I did not have to go home disappointed at all.
