The SM FoodCourt at SM City Bacolod was renovated last year along with their new north wing expansion. It occupies a part of the north wing 2nd floor, just behind the SM Cyberzone, and now features an interesting mix of tenants that aim to provide diners with a variety of local and international dishes, textures, and flavors at affordable prices.
Yesterday, bloggers and media were treated to a dinner spread at the SM FoodCourt featuring Asian cuisine. Four tenants showcased their bestsellers, namely Mr. Kimbob (Korean), Tokyo Joe (Japanese), Four Seasons (Chinese), and Kublai Khan (Mongolian rice).
Mr. Kimbob features healthy Korean rice sizzlers, rice rolls (kim bob), mandu and of course, kim chi. These are their bestsellers. Most of their dishes have a red tint, which instantly tells you that these are laden with chili. But if you are like us who love it hot, you would want to ask for more of their chili sauce at their condiments area. We love the fact that their dishes are served with a lot of
Tokyo Joe offers Japanese fare in big and affordable servings. Their bestsellers include their large bowls of ramen, bento boxes, and don buri (rice toppings). If you are in a group of 3 or 4, you can order several dishes and share them to have a complete meal.
Four seasons is a Chinese restaurant that made their food easily ordered and quickly served served in a food court setting. They have dimsum and dumplings, complete rice meal sets, and even a single serve shabu2 in a small pot. It can serve up to 3 pax.
I remember Kublai Khan in Cebu as an eat all you can Mongolian rice restaurant. But here, they have designed their space for the food court setting where people can choose different ingredients for a single bowl of Mongolian rice. Tonight, we sampled different combinations, which you can either make yourself or just let them mix according to their taste. You can choose to have rice, bihon, or pancit as the carbs part of your bowl.
The SM FoodCourt Bacolod is open daily during mall hours, from 10am to 9pm, unless there are special occasions where they shorten or lengthen their operational hours. So if you have a hankering for any of these four Asian flavors, you know where to go.
