Call me old fashioned but one of the video games that I love is Diner Dash. I got giddy when I was invited for a foodie meet-up at Dine n Dash’s new home at SM Taytay. Their interior looks very Diner Dash although they should really work with their ventilation so customers won’t smell like the pantry after dining in. I couldn’t comment that much about their customer service because I didn’t walk in as a paying customer. I love that they have enough parking space for their customers and that their location isn’t that hard to find.
I was 30 minutes late for the foodie meet-up because of the traffic situation along Ortigas avenue extension at 12nn. Well, don’t fret – this is not the usual scenario in the area. There’s just an ongoing road construction. For some people who are coming from Makati, it’s safe to use the C6 road until the construction is finished.
Among the appetizers that were served, I was able to taste their “Nacho Drive”. I am a fan of chili con carne and nachos so, it’s definitely a new favorite.
Dine n Dash have 7 burgers to choose from and each can be served with fries and drinks for an additional P40. My top choices? Fantastic 4 cheese and Texas buffalo. These are not your usual burgers because you can really taste real meat for affordable prices.
If you are like me who can eat pasta everyday, then Dine n Dash pasta dishes is a must-try. Their pasta can either be served “solo” or “to share”. My favorites are Seafood Bleu Cheese and Chicken Aglio Olio. They have a hefty serving. Their “to share” serving can feed up to 4 pax (well, that depends on your appetite). Why I love their pasta? The noodles are perfectly cooked and their signature sauces will make you come back for more. Did I mention that their food is affordable? Their dishes are also Instagramable!
Choose from classic, hot and spicy, garlic parmesan and barbecue. Of course I always go for spicy wings! Pair it with Chipotle Mayo, Aioli, Blue Cheese or Honey Mustard then you’re good to go.
The big fish. Trust me on this, it is really big and it’s only P119! This dish can be served with rice or fries.
Thank heavens for oreos and ice cream! You just can’t go wrong with Midnight. I love the texture, the plating and the awesome taste of this dessert. The looks is not too complicated for a dessert but it’s the bomb!
I will definitely come back with Miguel to try out some of their dishes on the menu.
Dine n Dash is located at GF BPO Building, SM City, Manila East Rd., Taytay, Rizal
