We ate at GUMBOS in Mall of Asia last Tuesday to celebrate my grand aunt's 69th birthday. It was fun and we had a blast. The resto boasts a tagline of "A Taste of New Orleans" and they kept their word on it. Of course it was not a full experience seeing that they did not don masks nor did they gave away beads to guests as the New Orleans Mardi Gras is famous for.
We ordered all the house specialties and boy, was it worth it. I didn't even flinch upon seeing the bill because the food was just so good. Seafood Jambalaya, Ultimate Seafood Feast, Crawfish Etouffe, Seafood Artichoke, and many many more. You really need to try it. The picture on the right is the Jambalaya. The kitchen can be seen as well from the Dining Area. Think of those chef cook shows where the chef cooks right in front of you and serves it to you direct from the pan. That's how they do it. And the service was fine! Even with the service charge, I still gave them a huge tip coz they deserved it. I never had to ask for anything twice. I never had to call any of them since they would immediately go to you when you need something. Now that's what I call FAB CRM.
At the end of the meal, we even had them sing for my grand aunt and they performed with gusto. They even had this headdress sort of thing that they put on your head. Unfortunately, my Lola was so shocked by what happened that she had this WTF expression on her face the entire time. Lol! I actually had my picture taken with the thing and you can see from the goofy look on my face that we were having a blast. =p
So the next time I get to Mall of Asia, I'll make sure to drop by and have a taste of New Orleans. I'll take every word you've said here Kathy. Thanks for this post.ReplyDelete
