Foodie’s Guide on What to Eat at HOLE IN THE WALL, Century City Mall

hole in the wall century city mall

Before the year 2014 ended, there was Hole in the Wall at Century City Mall, sparking the food marketplace or food hall concept that has long changed people’s dining experiences in the US such as Eataly in Chicago and Faneuil Hall Marketplace in Boston. People love to control what they can put in their plate and comfort, “ease of eating” and quality they can get from their food these days. It’s no wonder that Hole in the Wall has been a huge hit for foodies and curious citizens alike.

Not every stall at Hole in the Wall sparks the interest of the majority. Whether it’s your first time going to Hole in the Wall, or want to experience other stalls the second or third time around, then this foodie guide is for you.

Perhaps Hole in the Wall’s most popular food stall is Beyond Concept’s BAD BIRD: A take on your customizable chicken plates, a trend that has been going on since Senor Pollo.

Two piece Umami fried chickens on a plate with spicy levels of Safe, Spicy and Chemical go along with Dirty Rice, Corn and Coleslaw or Sweet Potato Waffles. The Dirty Rice Plate is highly recommended. Stay away from the Sweet Potato Waffles as they feel like they have been left in the cold for too long. Service can be bad so you must arrive with patience.

Phobobo

Worth a Visit? No

Phobobo’s fusion of American and Vietnamese cuisine has greatly disappointed many, its serving being too small than what was advertised. Foodies recommend getting a slurp of Maki Mi at Kwong’s Provisions instead.

If you’ve always been dreaming of milk and cookies before you go to bed, Chef Miko Aspiras’ Scout’s Honor is the dream come true. We once again see the urge to customize everything we eat from pizzas to ramen, but this time, creating your own cookies doesn’t sound like a bad idea. Pair your Cookie Inception or Smore’s Tag Alongs with Horlicks or their very own Horchata made from whole milk and toasted sticky rice from Laguna.

Mister Delicious’ Chef Jeremy Sagle has long perfected his formula on Wagyu corned beef and pastrami since 2012. This too-huge-for-one-person sandwich is a breather from your usual club, and possibly one of the best reuben sandwiches in the metro. Best to pair the Pastrami Reuben with Katipunan Ale Craft beers when you visit with your friends.

Kwong’s Provisions

What to Order: Prawn and Crab Roe Balls and Salted Egg Chicken Wings
Budget: P200 – P300 per person
Kwong’s Provisions Menu

If you’re a fan of Spring by Ha Yuan, then Kwong’s Provisions Westernized palate shouldn’t bother you.

From their famous Amah Kwong’s Lumpia, to Maki Mi and Mantou Buns with Chili Crab Sauce, Kwong’s Provisions attracts a modest yet curious flow of customers who find familiarity in Chinese cuisine.

Best to share a plate of Salted Egg Chicken Wings and never to miss the Soft Shell Po’Boy Cua Pao. That Crispy Hong Ma Cua Pao is arguably one of the first baos before Ippudo swept away the metro.

Opening Hours: 4:00pm – 10pm daily
Telephone Number: (02) 556 8817
Worth a Visit? No (for the none spicy food lovers)

There’s much loyalty around Chef Jayps Anglo’s Sarsa Kitchen + Bar, so there were high hopes around Liberation Shawarma. Unfortunately, if you are not a fan of spicy food, Liberation Shawarma might be too hot for you. And yes, there’s a sign in front of the stall so don’t say they didn’t tell you it’s that spicy.

Green Cheese

Worth a Visit? Yes
What to order: Japanese Cheesecake – Original
Budget: P350 per box; P50 per slice

You know how Japanese cheesecakes are – fluffy in texture and light with just the right amount of sweetness. Chef Mitsuma should cap your dinner with a dainty slice of Japanese cheesecake.

If you don’t have much time, I don’t really recommend grabbing an eclair at Tiny Duchess, as you can get better ones at Eric Kayser; and also Spruce, since P250 is too expensive for fruit juice.

The Beef, which will be serving hamburgers soon, excites me because I think that’s missing from the whole Hole in the Wall concept. I still feel that Hole in the Wall’s food selection is limited, and there’s much potential in this place. I would love to see a food stall with Japanese and Italian cuisine here.

It will be best to arrive at Hole in the Wall around 6:00pm since lines are only starting to form during that time, and easier to find a seat in this 400-seater food hall.
