Millie's All Day Dining at UP Technohub

My second visit to Millie's was in their Technohub branch. This time around, I was just in time for their Holy Week and summer menu. Millie's is named after the mother of Microtel's president, who has an extensive experience in the hotel industry. This restaurant has its 3rd branch in the Philippines, with its other branches near Mall of Asia and Batangas. The Techohub branch is the biggest of them all with an indoor and outdoor seating area.

The restaurant specialized in home-cooked favorites, unlike anything other hotels have served. Their penchant for simple, homey cooking truly caught my attention.

I first tried the Mango Graham Smoothie. At Php 160, it was chock-full of milky goodness. The toppings were comprised of thick whipped cream, a cheesecake wedge, 2 wafersticks, and graham tidbits. It was atop a thick milkshake with fresh mangoes.

It was so good that I wanted another glass of this splendid concoction.

We even had a complimentary bread basket with the sumptuous meal which was to come.

The dining area was bright and spacious. It also had a wonderful view of their lawn and the surrounding buildings in Technohub.

The Burata Caprese was the appetizer of the day. It cost Php 550. It was a white substance made out of feta cheese and dough served cold with tomato, olive oil, and balsamic vinegar garnish. Every bite had a chunky, cheesy flavor with a hint of salt and sour tastes.

The Baby Back Ribs cost Php 550. It was a half slab of beef ribs packed with their special marinade and baked to perfection. It came with coleslaw sides, salad, and ranch dressing. Every bite was perfect with the tangy taste of the ranch dressing sauce. 

The Hainanese Chicken cost Php 350. It was a half serving of chicken on rice with the customary broth, chili sauce, soy sauce, and ginger. The meat was tender and much more flavorful with a dip in each of the sauces. The soup was great in itself. It was full with chicken flavor.

The Tropical Grilled Marlin (Php 475) was a chunk of grilled Marlin over soft mashed potatoes and salad. It came with Mango Salsa for that sweet, fruity flavor. I liked the fact that the meat was well-done with a hint of oil for flavor.

The Seafood Marinara was at Php 310.00. It was a mix of their finest seafood selection which included mussels, clams, shrimp, and squid over linguine noodles and tasty tomato sauce. It was truly made for pasta and seafood lovers. The meal was done freshly.

The Pan Fried Salmon cost Php 630. It was a huge helping of Salmon mixed with capers, mashed potatoes and salad. The capers, paprika, and olive oil gave it so much distinct flavor that I couldn't help but almost finish an entire plate. The fish itself was fresh, too.

The Panna Cotta was at Php 195. It was a small serving of milk jelly with mango and cherry sidings. I liked the fact that the jelly itself was quite soft and easy to digest. It had a slight milky flavor too.

Lastly, we had 4 varieties of their gelato. I particularly liked the Artisan Gelato Siling Labuyo & Orange Swits at Php 220. It was an excellent combination of iced cream, chili, and orange gummy candy which made its fiery taste noticeable at the back of the tongue. The others were also similarly priced at Php 220, with the Vanilla Gelato taking the cake for its simplicity.

For those with conservative tastes and an inkling for no-frills international comfort food, Millie's offers something for their taste buds. It is located at 1/F Microtel Technohub.
