Chaplin, Century City Mall

While everyone was out of town for the holidays, my friends and I were stuck in the city. Our way to make ourselves feel better was to go somewhere we'd normally avoid - Makati! The roads in Metro Manila get really congested on regular days, so venturing that far out isn't always an option.
We headed over to Century City Mall and had lunch at Chaplin located on the fourth floor veranda. The restaurant has a very classy yet laid back vibe. It's the type of place that will make you want to stay longer than you intend to. On the walls are quotes that most will find funny and quite fitting, like this one for example:
Kwok was teasing me at how this quote captures me perfectly. Well, what can I say? I like to eat! :P

mainly offers Mediterranean and Middle Eastern dishes, but we didn't really feel like experimenting that day so we went with the safer, more common dishes like pizza, pasta, and burger.

Chaplin Pizza (P355)
shakshouka sauce, mozzarella cheese, eggs, pesto sauce
Shakshouka sauce is a combination of tomatoes, chili peppers, and onions. Honestly, I didn't feel like it was any different to normal tomato sauce.
On the plus side, I really liked the fact that they topped the pizza with egg because it makes it creamier. The pesto sauce was also a great touch because its flavor stands out from all the stuff you normally find in pizza. You can also make your own 10" pizza with two toppings for P295 (choose from onion, tomato, mushroom, black olives, garlic, and jalapeno).

Pasta Alfredo (P355)
choice of penne or fettuccini with cream of mushroom, 3 cheese, onions, sweet potato
I'm a sucker for anything with mushrooms and this one is no exception. The sweet potato was an interesting addition to the dish. It added some texture and creaminess to it.

Chaplin Burger (P375)
lettuce, tomato, pickles, onion served with side salad
I don't think I'd order this again. It wasn't anything special, really. I've had better burgers, and believe me, I've only had a few.
Maybe we'll dine here again on the next holiday to try their more unique dishes. Maybe. Thanks for taking me out, boys!
Chaplin is located at Fourth Floor, Century City Mall, Kalayaan Avenue Corner Salamanca Street, Poblacion, Makati City.
