When I blogged about the new Shangri-La Plaza East Wing last month, one of the things that I look forward to is the food, and yes, the shops. For now, let's concentrate on the food, shall we? When we first set foot in the new east wing, one of the restaurants that caught my eye was The Strip Hollywood Steakhouse. How could I miss it? It's one of the first restaurants to open in the new wing and with it's expansive facade, it'll surely catch your attention. Also, with a name like that, you had me at "steakhouse".
I call these little triangles of bliss. Cream cheese insides with delicious cranberry dip. It's a mix of sweet and salty. One bite will leave you longing for more. A tad on the oily side though...

So how did we like the food? To tell the truth, I wasn't impressed with their steaks. I think I'd rather go back to I'm Angus Steakhouse whenever I crave for meat. The steaks cool down easily; we just took less than five minutes to take the photos and by the time we had the steaks, it was almost room temperature. It tastes mediocre too, nothing to rave about. Thumbs down. But what got me was their sea bass and the phyllo triangles. The sea bass was cooked perfectly - moist, fork-tender and flavorful. While the phyllo triangles remind me of the pringles slogan: once you pop, you can't stop.
Overall I'd give The Strip Hollywood Steakhouse a 2.5 out of 5. Not happy with the steaks but maybe I'll go back and have their non-meat dishes.
The Strip Hollywood Steakhouse is at 5/F Shangri-la Plaza Mall, East Wing, Shaw Blvd cor. EDSA, Wack Wack, Mandaluyong
