Lunch Under The Mango Tree

Last Wednesday June4, we had a team lunch from the office. We this kind of event we try to look for a new place or a common place we hadn’t dine yet.

Mango Tree The Fort

This time we choose the Mango Tree at The Fort . So we made reservation a day before so that things will go smoothly and not have any issue like no tables are available scenario. 
Mango Tree The FortGreat Ambiance is the first thing I can think of when describing the Mango Tree at The Fort . It seems to be occupying two commercial spaces for it is located on a corner spot of BGC High Street Central going to BGC High Street.It sure have a lot of leg room to walk around without bumping to other patrons which is a “pogi point” in my book.

They also have a loft corner on top but still did not over crowd the whole restaurant, which still have a open ceiling. This gives a great air circulation for the whole place.Mango Tree The Fort

We arrive around 11:30 and we’re the only people on the restaurant. So I took the chance to take some shots so that I wont be rude for some people who just want to dine and relax.

The first to be serve were the Gai (chicken) and Moo Satay (pork), served with cucumber and peanut dipping sauce.  

Gai Satay

Moo Satay

Satay is a dish of seasoned, skewered and grilled meat, served with a sauce. My favorite is the peanut dipping sauce, I just like it. 

We waited for a while for our rice but we can’t wait and started without it. Then came Tow Hoo Phad Med Ma-Maung is stir-fried tofu with cashew nuts, capsicum and onion.

Yes, we did ordered veggies to be complete.

Then our rice came, but the satay was already been long gone. We order 2 types of rice so we can have variety: Khao Kloo Kapi which is a stir-fried rice with shrimp paste or binagoongan rice and the Khao Pad Kai or Egg fried rice.

Khao Kloo Kapi

Khao Kloo Kapi rice is a bit heavy compared to the Khao Pad Kai rice. I would recommend the Khao Pad Kai rice so you can enjoy more food and not feel full.

Then the Goong Sam Rod and Pla Muek Yang came to complete the meal. But so I thought.

I really love my seafood. The prawns and squids are cook perfectly. Really enjoyed every bite of it.

A meal is never complete if you don’t have dessert, and because we are all full to the brim. We just ordered 2 desserts to share.

We had Mun Cheum or Sweet cassava topped with coconut milk and Khao Niew Ma Muang or ripe fresh mango served with sticky rice smothered in coconut milk.

YUMMY! Simply Yummy.

The best part of our experience with the Mango Tree was that we got a free Po Pia Goong or spring rolls for we have spend Php3000 or more.

All-in-all the Mango Tree is a fine restaurant to dine with your friends office-mate and families.

The Mango Tree BGC have a great ambiance  that will keep you coming back. The service is great, they always have a smile in their face and always ready to serve. The best part is the great food they serve that will excite your appetite.

Will surely go back and try their other dish.
