Pick A Pot of Goodness at Pick-A-Pot Asian Fusion Restaurant

Good news for Baguio and its visitors: Kadis Grill has opened a sister restaurant (more fast casual dining than super casual a la carinderia dining … not that there’s anything wrong with the simple staples =b) at Megatower Residences!

Baguio Pick-A-Pot Asian Fusion restaurant

Presenting, Pick-A-Pot Asian Fusion!

As evidenced by their menu, they have a number of choices of dishes for us.  Pick a pot, pick a bowl, pick a plate, etc. of eatables to satisfy your hunger and/or your cravings.

Take your pick …

  • Pick a Mason Jar

Starting with the drinks, it seems the trend has really caught on that beverages be served in mason jars. Not that it does anything for the taste of the drink … it only makes it more appealing to the eye. Look and be mesmerized! … looking down at the pattern on the lid while sipping the fruity milky liquid that is our smoothies from a colorful paper straw … without realizing it, we had cross-eyed looks on our faces. =))

  • Pick a Hot Pot

The pot Race picked was a cute and amusing one.  Placed on the table, this mini shabushabu made me flashback to bahay-bahayan games I played as a child, only a few scales smaller =D Half cooked ingredients are served with broth in the pot and these all get completely cooked from the alcohol based flame down under. Once the flame goes out, (or after one more refueling *hihi), we ended up with beautifully cooked delicious sotanghon noodles, crunchy vegetables, tasty meat and crab stick slices, kikiam and other seafood-y balls and a comforting broth with floaty bits of egg in it.

  • Pick a Sizzling Plate

When the hot plate of gambas was delivered to our table, it was madly a-bubbling and a-popping. Just goes to show how saucy it was, which I was thankful for since that made for extra flavoring/souping of our rice. Nicely cooked, tender shrimp; it almost tricked me into thinking I was eating cream dory. ^^, Lots of veggie sahog that did well with the rice, also.

  • Pick a Plate

We got a chewy crepe with a generous stuffing & topping of mangoes, and drizzle of choco ripple. (Does that make it rain then? *snickers) Although on other days, I could take sourness without the involuntary squinting,the mango cubes in this dish seemed to be sourer than normal. It must’ve been the contrast to the sweet taste of the ice cream and the chocolate rain. (I do prefer this kind of  consistency for mangoes, a tad unripe than mushy and over, so no biggie.)

Mango crepe supreme. Mmm, chewy … like a soft taco. *hihi

  • … and Pick a Plastic Cake Container even

Perfect butter to graham cracker ratio crust for this blueberry cheesecake. \m/ I didn’t get any coughing aftereffects like when attacking pulvoron leftovers. All in all, it was a creamy, jelly cheesecake with just the right amount of blueberry sauce topping on it.

X marks Pick-A-Pot for good food in Baguio. Go ahead and pick a pot, a plate, a bowl, a mason jar, a plastic cake container of their food; it’s all good.

(I’m thinking this would be one of the great places to head for after the Panagbenga parades next weekend-February 28 and March 1, 2015. *wink wink)

Food: 5 treasure chests

Service: 5 treasure chests They regularly checked on our hot pot to see if it’s run out of soup, so they could refill it. Yey!  Nice and friendly, attentive owners and staff. (“,)

Ambiance: 4 treasure chests

Price: 4 treasure chests Sizable hot pot serving, good for two at P180. We could’ve shared that and been satisfied. (The same with the gambas.) In the interest of providing you with a well covered blogpost, we opted to order more dishes. You’re welcome, my foodie friends. *hihi
