Hole in the Wall at Century City Mall

Hole in the Wall at Century City Mall is NOT YET OPEN, but I am so excited about it I can't wait to share these photos with you.

Charlie refers to his new venture with business partner Dwight as a "food court," but I refuse to call it that. 

The incredibly handsome space houses 11 all-original concepts from healthy stuff like salads and cold-pressed juices, to comfort food like burgers, pho, and shawarma, to the totally wicked stuff like salted egg fried chicken wings! There is something for everyone.

The place can accommodate 400 people who will surely be oohing and aahing like me the moment they walk into the hole in the wall. Every corner, every nook and cranny is so picture perfect. I spent a good 40 minutes walking around the place before I finally settled into a leather couch. I wanted to sit on every chair, every stool, every bench. Lol.

Here's a sneak peek so you know what I'm gushing about.

Now, the most exciting part.

THE FOOD.

Phobobo will be cooking up incredible beefy beef noodle soup that is "pho-king de-li-cious" :P

 

 

DSC1551

Posporo will be serving a wide selection of slowcooked Filipino food, like a sosy turo-turo.
Hi Kat and Earl! :) 

 

 

DSC1553

Jeremy Slagle, aka Mister Delicious, will be making his famous pastrami and corned beef 
among other delicious things. I love a good reuben and I can't wait for this to open!

There will also be an area serving craft beers

Spruce for healthy salads and cold-pressed juices

Burger patties in the making

 The Beef is a back-to-basics burger place that serves its burgers with no frills - just good 
quality beef patty, lettuce, tomato, and cheese (if you want it). I am loyal to Pink Egg Episode's
Mayura Wagyu Burger - I think it's the best, but I have to say this comes very, very close!

Tiny Duchess offers sweet and savory eclairs

 

 

DSC1871

The sweet ones. My favorites are the double chocolate and lemon meringue. 
For savories, the salmon wasabi and croque monsieur.

Chef Miko Aspiras of Scout's Honor

The very talented pastry chef will be spoiling us with special cookie and milk flavors

 

 

DSC1660Check out this one he calls "Cookie Inception." It's a cookie within a cookie within a cookie!

Charlee had the chocolate mint cookie and look how happy she is! :)

 Green Cheese by my pretty friend CJ

Green Cheese specializes in Japanese cheesecakes and they bake them fresh
in-store everyday

So light and fluffy, it is, indeed, the happiest cheesecake in the world!

Green Hair loves Green Cheese :)

 

 

Charlie told me the whole place took one year to complete because they had to redo so many things until everything is perfect.

If you are not yet as impressed as I, wait till you see the outdoor dining area.

Green Cheese at Hole in the Wall ♥ ♥ ♥

 

I've never been a big fan of cheesecakes, especially Japanese cheesecakes, which I think are too light, too airy, too eggwhite-y. I mean they're okay as long as I don't have to eat them for dessert. Because they are NOT desserts.

They are… ummm… bread. Or something.

 

 

DSC1571

That is, until Green Cheese.

 

 

DSC1633

Green Cheese uses Japanese techniques, but makes its cheesecakes a bit creamier 
and just slightly sweeter, so they don't taste like… ummm… meringue.

 

 

DSC1627

All cheesecakes are baked in-store everyday so you get them fresh all the time

 

 

DSC7117

 Original Cheesecake. Look, it's smiling!!!

 

 

DSC7122

It truly is, as the box claims, the happiest cheesecake in the world :)

 

 

DSC7134

The happiest cheesecake is also so light and fluffy, like creamy puffs of clouds!

 

 

DSC7119

The Green Tea Cheesecake is equally addicting

 

 

DSC7123

So light and fluffy and grassy, the way real Japanese green tea cheesecake is supposed to be!

 

 

DSC7139

I could have finished both cakes easily, but it was past midnight so I didn't dare eat
more than their chins. I was also too lazy to grab a knife and plate so I ate them
with a fork, out of their boxes. :P  Believe me, it was hard to stop.

 

 

The next morning, when I was ready to eat the rest of their faces, this was what I found in the fridge:

 

DSC1821

OMG!!! MY MOM!!! SHE'S A MURDERER!!!!!!!!!
Click here to see what she did to my mooncakes and chocolates! Arrrrrgggghhhh!!!

 

 

So my massacred cheesecake didn't look all that joyful, but if you saw my face, it was as happy (and okay, fine, as round) as the happiest cheesecake on earth! :)

Congratulations, CJ!!! :)
