I haven’t been back to Stacy’s in over a year so when I found out it opened a branch in The Fort, I immediately made a mental note to drop by the soonest I can.
They’re located on Rizal Drive, Forbestown Heights, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City.
Check out my first reviewed trip to Stacy’s here. (This happens to be my second food blog entry, so… I cringe at the photos.)
I’m definitely still a big fan of the interiors — so many cutesy and dainty details to marvel at as you wait for your food. The whole place is a scene out of a little girl’s dream!
A Stacy’s staple: a mug of treats (i.e. buttered popcorn, marshmallows and Berry Knots). This looks better than it tastes.
Here’s their Homebaked Chicken Parmesan – baked chicken fillet, tomato sauce, cheese, herbs, corn and carrots.
The chicken was served on a hot plate to preserve its flavor. Despite its commendable presentation, we found this to be just okay. On a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being the highest), this merits a 6 from us. A few bites in and already the flavors ran a bit dry and lackluster. I guess what it missed ultimately was a distinct, contrasting element.
Clara’s Feast, however, is most recommended. This rice bowl is composed of the following: dried salted fish, chorizo, golden kernels, a mango-tomato salsa, sunny side-up eggs (two!), and buttery fried rice. Now, if the chicken heavily lacked variety, this dish didn’t, definitely! If I were to nitpick though, I would’ve appreciated a bigger serving of the chorizo and the fish — all that was served is what’s seen in this photo. The rice made up 80% of the bowl.
Their Choco Lava, meanwhile, is still as deceiving as ever. This seemingly mouthwatering treat isn’t all that, really. I’ve had better, cheaper (!) chocolate cake. I won’t be ordering this again.
As per usual, we got sweet treats with the bill! On a related note, payment at Stacy’s Fort is still on a cash-only basis.
That’s it for this food trip =)
