When the Philippine government converted the former US military base it into a freeport zone, Subic has been a traveler’s destination. With roughly 2-3 hours travel time from Manila, one can enjoy the many attractions it offers. On a rainy Saturday early this August, I found myself in this place once again. I was here several times already. I remember living in one of those basecamp where the American soldiers used to live. I experienced climbing up a 40 feet post in the Subic Extreme Adventure. Then I remembered having awesome dining experiences in restaurants I no longer remember the name. This time I found myself at the Harbor Point Mall, just in time for ClawDaddy‘s Grand Opening.
I shared my first ClawDaddy experience before and it was really good. Here’s a chance to experience it again, I said to myself. It was mid-morning and so we decided to have some brunch. While waiting for our food, I decided to roam around and take pictures.
The place is already brimming with guests but the place is huge that I didn’t find it difficult moving around the restaurant. The Americana theme is very evident, from the wall decals, neon signs and tables. Maybe this is how it used to be when the American soldiers still roam the area. My thoughts was interrupted when our food came.
We had pancakes and waffles, and bacon, sausages and hashbrown to get started with our brunch. I was already enjoying my breakfast when the serving plates were removed and replace by a new set of food.
I suddenly realized it’s lunch time when Seafood in the Bag and Baby Back Ribs were laid down on our table. I enjoyed the former when I was at the restaurant’s Bonifacio High Street branch. The taste never changed here at Harbor Point. That alone proves the quality control that ClawDaddy has in their food. I also enjoyed the ribs; it’s flavorful and tender. I love it! We capped our sumptuous brunch with desserts — Tres Leches and Wedge Mud Pie.
Tres Leches is most milky cake. I love that it’s not very sweet. But I fell in love with the mud pie because it’s very chocolaty and melts in your mouth. Heavenly!
Dining at this restaurant is always a delight. It never fails to satisfy my taste buds. If you’re heading Subic or even when passing by, take a detour to Ayala Mall’s Harbor Point Mall and dine at ClawDaddy.
