Johnny Rockets: A Fun Afternoon with Bloggers!

I am a huge fan of diners and their massive servings. Do not underestimate my small physique cause I could down a huge plate of anything in an instant. So imagine how ecstatic I was when Johnny Rockets - an international restaurant chain that provides the food, fun, and friendliness reminiscent of feel-good Americana - came up with a fun event for Mommy Bloggers Philippines. :D

The event was held at their Eastwood Mall branch, one of their six branches here in the country. The rest are located in Tomas Morato, Burgos Circle, Alabang Town Center, Harbor Point Subic and Shangrila Mall. This year, they'll be opening two new branches at Fairview Terraces and Boracay! Definitely excited for the Fairview Terraces branch cause it'll be the one nearest to me.

I've been to diners during my stay in New York and Johnny Rockets indeed have the same all-American look and feel! With its tabletop jukeboxes and authentic decor, I felt like I was back in the States! Johnny Rockets also offers an equally all-American menu - from hamburgers, including gourmet burgers such as the sumptuous Truffle Burger and the Surf and Turf, to shakes and malts.

Their latest offering this summer is their Summer Shakes which left me speechless. They currently have three flavors - Hawaiian Breeze, Halo-halo, Guyabano - which absolutely matches the Filipino taste. My favorite is definitely Halo-halo. It's nothing like your ordinary halo-halo because of its heavenly creaminess and perfect sweetness.

There is no other better combination than to match Johnny Rockets' summer shake with the Original Hamburger and American fries served with a ketchup smiley face. Other mommies may have failed to finish this ginormous 1/3 lb burger made with fresh, 100% pure imported ground beef, but this mommy downed all this! :p  

The Original Hamburger. Yum!

Of course, a day at Johnny Rockets will not be complete without great entertainment! Johnny Rockets, the home of dancing servers, definitely live up to this proposition. Their friendly servers treat us to an exciting dance number every 30 minutes. They probably have choreographed hundreds of dance routines for their guests. Anyway, here's a short clip of one of their performances:

This summer, they also have a Kiddie Crew Program called the Rocketeers Summer Camp. This one's open to kids ages 6 to 12 years old. This would have been a nice activity for Z, but he's just 2 1/2. In this 4-day program, they will be taught different activities including the dance moves shown above. :) You may visit any Johnny Rockets branch near you to enroll your kids. This activity will last until the end of May.

Take home Halo-Halo summer shake cause I loved it that much! <3
