Restaurant Review: The Old Spaghetti House at Robinson's Otis

The Old Spaghetti House is one of our favorite pasta place.  I recall the first time I've tried  The Old Spaghetti House (we used to call it TOSH for short) was way back in college days when they had their branch near DLSU.  My classmates used to go their for lunch.  We've tried many of their mall branches but its our first time to try out their Robinson's Otis branch.

 We ordered their Appetizer Basket (210 php) for appetizer.  It contains Calamares, Chicken Fingers,Onion Rings and a mayo dip.

For our main course we ordered Seafood Marinara (195 php), Eggplant Parmigiana w/ Penne Pomodoro (165 php), U.S. Beef Bistro Steak w/ Parmesan Spaghetti (245 php), Gambasetti (195 php) and I forgot the last dish.=(  They all tasted good.  I liked the Seafood Marinara the most.  Although it was similar to the Gambasetti, it was more flavorful since it has more ingredients.  Each had their own flavors to share.  Except for the U.S. Beef Bistro Steak w/ Parmesan Spaghetti.  It was a U.S. steak plus plain spaghetti.  The spaghetti had gravy as sauce.  I was expecting that the spaghetti would have its own definitive sauce but it was as if the spaghetti was just a rice substitute.  It was worth the experience but I would probably not order that again.

Because of the tempting signs all over the restaurant, we also ordered the Match Green Tea and Java Mocha for drinks.  The Match Green Tea was delicious!  I loved how it had a rich green tea taste that was not overpowered by sweetness and creamy texture.  On the other hand, I found the Java Mocha too sweet.  I already divided the drink into two glasses and added water to it just to make it tolerable and it was still too sweet!  It was like sugar milk.  I should've ordered the Match Green Tea instead.=(

 For dessert, we always order the New York Cheese Cake.  Their cheese cakes are imported from the Cheese Cake Factory in the USA.  That's our favorite!   My little sister also wanted to try out their Strawberry Funnel Cake w/ Cream.  I'm not that fond of funnel cakes.  But it was good.  The texture was just right and it was not too sweet.  

Overall, the meal was satisfactory.  The cost is average.  The service was a bit slow since there was only one server.  Their pasta is delicious as always.  We'' probably come back here again.
