Harry’s Cafe de Wheels

So for the third time in a row, we skipped all of the Chinese restaurants around the area for Chinese New Year and, instead, tried out this Australian-based café found in Solenad/Nuvali. Harry’s started out as a humble food truck and has grown to become a beloved Australian icon. Their specialty is meat pies and classic snacks/street food fare, like sandwiches, poutine, and soups. Their branch here in Manila also just so happens to be their first one in Asia.

Chunder Chowder – Hearty and creamy soup full of fresh clams and potatoes. This wasn’t too bad. The only complaints that I have are 1.) The bread bowl was tough to eat, and 2.) The serving size was too small.

Classic Hotdog – Viennese smoked sheep-cased Frankfurt, on freshly baked roll with cheese and tomato sauce. The bun was delicious and quite soft for my liking, but the hotdog itself was just fine.

Chicken Poppers – Battered chicken balls and freshly cut spuds. This dish had more wedges than chicken in it. Hmmm.

Harry’s Chicken – Fiery deeply-fried chicken, served with pepper rice and Harry’s special gravy.

For my drink, I had the very rich and sinful Dirty Dutch Mudpie.

I can’t really decide if we just ordered the wrong stuff or if the resto itself could use a little more improvement with the quality of their food. I still have faith in Harry’s, though, and I’m actually willing to give them another chance.

Ambiance/Interior: 5/5
Staff/Service: 4.5/5 – Food took a while to arrive.
Food: 3.5/5 (taste) 3/5 (presentation)
