Potato Corner The Spud Diner
We all know Potato Corner as that little stand selling flavored french fries in malls and as a food cart staple in most kiddie parties. It's now much more than that.
Last June 9, 2010 I was invited the the grand opening and launch of Potato Corner's The Spud Diner. It's a little place on the ground floor of The Ayala Columns at the corner of Buendia and Ayala Avenue.
They sure are serving more than just flavored fries now. We got a pretty good sampling of the unique potato dishes Potato Corner The Spud Diner is offering. Potato Sausage Surprise (P165, pictured above) is a dish made thinly sliced potato wedges, sausage bits, melted cheese, herbs and spices. That above is the actual serving size and plating, but since we were trying out so many dishes we were given smaller portions.
My companions and I agreed that the Baked Potato Lasagna (pictured above, P90 for a full serving) was delicious. It's made of potato sheets layered with creamy sauce and ground beef in between then topped with melted cheese.
Another tasty dish is the Italian Job (pictured above, P85 for a full serving). Thinly sliced potato wedges are mixed with tomato paste, capers, olives, cheese, and Italian spices. It's very savory with a flavor that's reminiscent of pizza.
For dessert, Ice Cream Temptation (P50, pictured above) was served to all the guests. Piping hot and crunchy fries are coated with chocolate powder and then topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Yummy! I don't think I've ever had anything like it, I'm pretty sure my kids will have a blast with this treat. :D
