My heart fell when we were told we won't be karting anymore. The afternoon rain had rendered the tracks un-navigable. Sitting inside the Game Room, I glazed over the menu, distracted by the crisp thwacks of cue sticks.

THE PLACE
The Game Room was Kart City's in-house food place. With three billiard tables, and an easy, hangout vibe, it wasn't a surprise that the place was popular. On one corner was an elegant bar, with a brown sleek finish. Scattered around the room were bar stools where billiard players awaiting their turns can often be found. If a room had a gender, the Game Room would be male. A very sporty and chill one at that.

On a panel overhead, a widescreen tv rested. Sir Roy wanted to watch Ang Probinsyano, but the other customers had it tuned to a basketball game. We didn't mind and just let it be.


THE FOOD
My companions took care of the ordering and my god were they great at it. There were sinigang, kare-kare, sisig (Php140) and other food that would be great paired with a beer.

The sinigang was, of course, comforting. The kare-kare creamy and mild. 

Then came the crispy pata (Php440), which seemed to be calling my name. Oh boy, I love pork. By the time I had a bite of the sinfully delicious crackling skin, I'd completely forgotten about the cancelled karting plans. I was OK with just a plate of crispy pata.

A bowl of Chef's Salad (Php175) came to our table. Mai and I attacked it. It was gone in a matter of minutes.

Then, there was this pizza-looking thing that you must roll with spinach. It was a lot of work but it was quite delicious.

THE SERVICE
We had quite a lot of orders. We were a group of eight, but I was quite surprised at how quickly our orders came. But then again, I'm rather oblivious as a person, so don't bet a house on my word. 

The Game Room is a nice place to hang out with your barkada. I believe it was actually meant for this. The overall ambiance of the room all points to this conclusion. Thee place might be glaringly masculine, but it wasn't intimidating. It was a good-guy kind of room. 

BOTTOMLINE
It was surprising to find such a nice little foodscape in a place that's primarily known for kart-racing. Heck, some people even come here just to hangout at the Game Room. Couldn't blame them. Good food, good ambiance, and reasonable prices. What's not to like?
