As we know many Filipinos love basketball as their hobby or sports. Many Filipinos dream of being part of the National Team or meet their favorite basketball player even just once. Filipino’s love for basketball can be —- from the many basketball games held here in the Philippines such as the NCAA, UAAP, PBA and other basketball games in the Philippines. NBA Cafe is a haven for all the basketball lover here in Manila. Not only your tummy will be filled but your eyes will also be satisfied!
So Let’s start with filling up our tummies
Here are two of their main dish that you can eat with rice
Baby Back Ribs that is good for two. It is a pork that was steaked with mushrooms, broccoli, green bellpepper and corn. The dish has a strong flavor that is ideal to eat with rice. The meat was a bit hard but still chewy, I guess I just prefer my meat to be very tender. Their sauce is also a bit stronger than what I prefer but my sister acknowledged the good tast of their sauce that was new and unique (‘mind you my sister have a very picky tastebuds).
My first bite of chicken was unexpectedly gratifying because at first I was at doubt of the taste, since chicken and potato both don’t have that much flavor with them but the sauce was enough to cover up, It was so good and I loved it. The flavor was not too strong and no too bland, it’s just right — enough for me to love chicken more ❤️.
The foods are given in big amount, mostly the main dishes are for two but it doesn’t include the rice (P60/bowl).
Next are the Burgers, so we asked for their best seller and they recommended Hickory Smoked Bacon Beef Burger.
<p align= “justify”>Hickory Bacon Beef Burger is layered with Bacon, Beef Patty, Cheese, Onions, Tomatoes and Lettuce. The burger patty was thick! Making the burger really tall.</p>
For the Cheese Burger, we were full already that we get to take just a slice of it and base on the little bit of it, it was in the average level, I mean the patty was okay, the cheese was okay it’s just on a okay level.
The burgers were served first and so we started eating the fries to fill up some spaces in our tummies since we came in hungry.
The burgers for me was just a bit above the typical burger taste? It just that the taste wasn’t that impressive considering the price as compared to other cafes/burger stores that offers the same price or even higher but their burgers are worthy of it.
After filling up our tummies its time to satisfy our eyes, here are the basketball collection that they have
Since NBA Cafe is located on the top end corner of the mall the outer area was mostly in glass letting the sunlight in
They also have the Bar Area for those who want to grab some beers and cocktails
All in all, it is a must visit place for basketball lovers but even if you’re not, you will still enjoy the basketball collections and start getting curious. And when it comes to food, I prefer the rice meals, especially the chicken more than the burgers. I’ll rate NBA Cafe at around 3/5.
+The staffs are surely very very very very very accommodating and friendly. They answers to all your needs and want with a smile and a friendly response.
+Birthday Celebrants are give free cakes and a birthday song ofc!
+They will all gladly take your picture, as many as you want!
