Back to the 50's at District 50

Last night I had a chance to finally dine at District 50. It is a new restaurant at J Centre Mall and the theme is a 50's inspired restaurant. The ambiance kinda reminded me of TGIF but with one huge difference. They have an old Beetle Volkswagen inside the restaurant for a table of two. I really liked the concept since it really stands out among the other restaurants I've dined in.

Although this wasn't the first time I visited the place, this was the first time I dined their. I only ordered drinks on my first visit and I didn't get the chance to try out their dishes. After browsing their menu we decided to order the Pork Stir Fry, Creamy Pesto Pasta and Cream Dory with Pesto and Pea. I was almost tempted to order the baby back ribs but I had to control myself since I am trying to lose weight right now.hehehe

Creamy Pesto Pasta - P180.00

The first dish that was served was the Creamy Pesto Pasta. I think it only took less than 10 minutes to serve this dish. The dish was presentable and was served with two slices of bread. At first I thought the serving size for this dish was a bit small. I think it had to do with the huge plate they used to served the food. When I started eating the dish,which was by the way very tasty, I realized that I had a hard time finishing my share. The pasta was very heavy on my stomach and we still had two more dishes to consume.
Pork Stir Fry - P 165.00

The next dish they served was the Pork Stir Fry. I am really not aware of what ingredients they used in this dish but the taste was familiar to me. Although I am really not a fan of Pork mixed with vegetables and sauce I think the dish tasted good. The pork was properly cooked and it was tender and juicy inside. Serving size for this dish was more than enough for one person.

Cream Dory w/ Pesto Pea - P180.00
The last dish that was served was the Cream Dory Pesto and Pea. This was my favorite among the three dishes we ordered last night. I really liked the strong flavors in this dish. There were a lot of different ingredients that perfectly complemented each other.

My first dining experience at District 50 was very satisfying. Their service was excellent. Our food was served very fast and place has a great ambiance. The food was tasty and reasonably priced. My only regret is that I didn't order their Baby Back Ribs. I will definitely try their ribs on my next visit.

District 50 is located at J Centre Mall, Corner Bakilid Street, AS Fortuna, Mandaue City

  4. Nice... Hope to visit that place. The cream dori fish looks good. Hope they got good desserts.

  5. I visited the place again last Sunday and ordered their barbaric ribs. It really tasted great. I have to say their ribs was one of the tastiest ribs I tasted. I also ordered the Cream Dori with Pesto pea since I really enjoyed it on my previous visit. So far I would recommend their Barbaric Ribs and the Cream Dori. I will try their burgers on my next visit. I was really intrigued since it looked very tasty in their menu. Anyway thanks for dropping by. Hope you'll enjoy your visit their.

  6. Looks like a real cool place, nice touch with the VW Beetle!

  8. Hello anonymous sorry to hear that you had an undesirable experience their. So far I didn't have any problems with their service. Although I've only dined there twice, our food was served within a reasonable time.

    It would be great if you mention the dishes you ordered so that others will be aware on what dishes not to order.

  10. I've been dining at District 50 many times and I must say that their food and service has been top notch each time. Their prices are very reasonable considering they are located a nice, clean and secure shopping center. You will not be disappointed when you try this restaurant.
