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.
Phobobo will be cooking up incredible beefy beef noodle soup that is "pho-king de-li-cious" :P
Posporo will be serving a wide selection of slowcooked Filipino food, like a sosy turo-turo.
Hi Kat and Earl! :)
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
Charlie, the bad bird of the Bad Bird will be frying up some Japanese-style umami chicken
Chef Jayps Anglo of Sarsa will be serving up shawarma from this "food truck"
Suzy Lee of Kwong's puts an evil twist to Chinese food
Like this super duper crunchy Salted Egg Chicken Wings!!!
And Truffle Siomai
That's Chester prepping the beef at "The Beef"
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
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
Check out this one he calls "Cookie Inception." It's a cookie within a cookie within a cookie!
Read my separate post on Scout's Honor here.
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
So light and fluffy, it is, indeed, the happiest cheesecake in the world!
See my separate post on Green Cheese here.
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.
Super exciting times ahead! Congratulations, Charlie and Dwight and the whole
Hole in the Wall team!
Hole in the Wall will be on SOFT OPENING starting Friday, October 24. Please take note that not all 11 concepts will be open yet. They do it slowly, but surely. :)
