Mr. Jones – Ultimate Comfort Food

While waiting for a 10:30PM movie, we decided to try out Mr. Jones in Greenbelt, Makati finally.  It has been on our list of dining establishments to try after all the positive reviews we’ve heard.

Two words: Comfort Food

The modern diner setting lends it a more relaxed feel compared to a hustling actual diner with blaring music.

We got the best booth in the house, a nice round table in the corner, fit for two to four (great for a dinner for two actually).  It was a bit different from the typical red booths and it afforded you a view of the whole restaurant, including a peek of what’s happening outside.

We just had an order of steak and eggs to share.  With our current appetite, we were actually kind of sad we couldn’t order more food.  That might be something to try with a bigger group of friends because the servings are HUGE.

There is just something about these all-day breakfast offers.  I guess this is why I called it comfort food.  The warm meat with mushrooms, perfectly cooked sunny-side up eggs and potato wedges was good up to the last bite.

Given our shared love for alcohol, we also sampled two of our favorite drinks, a mojito and a cosmopolitan.  Both were good.  Both had very nice presentations and were pretty to look at.  But both could have used more alcohol.  (Well, that’s part of what we were paying for, right?  I wanted the Russian-standard vodka they specified on the menu.)  In the end, I complemented and washed down everything with a glass of Chardonnay.

Compared to the other restaurants on the strip of Greenbelt 5, Mr. Jones was the only one packed that night.  Rightly so with the kind of food they serve.  The servings are big and are always well-plated, making everything look more mouth-watering.  Our table was right next to the kitchen doorway so I found myself constantly looking at what the other tables were ordering.

If you’re also out there for the drinks, tell them not to go easy on the alcohol.  There are certain times we actually need a bit more to relax.

Here are other photos from a separate trip.

I shall be back to try the steak and  the ribs.  Yes, I love my meat. 😀

    hey, thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment on my post about mr. jones.

    try the us beef ribcap tapa and garlic overload next time you visit mr. jones; i’m sure that if you’re a meat lover, you’ll certainly like it. it’s reasonably priced too at PhP 295++.

    now if you’re into wines too, you might want to swing back to my blog for my new posts about oakroom’s american wines and food festival.

    cheers! 🙂
