In this insta-age, it’s considered a luxury to slow down and enjoy the simple things — like having a meal. The Food Hall, is a blessing to the public precisely because it marries the simplicity of a food hall and the unlimited choices of a world-class buffet, but don’t call it one. Brought to fruition by Foodee Global Concepts and established in 2014, The Food Hall is now getting a makeover that incorporates its original “food theater” concept and exciting additions to its roster of stations, not to mention new dishes from each one.
“We’re relaunching The Food Hall to remind everyone where it all started — Pound, Flatterie, Hook and The Grill will all be in the roster, to give diners a flexible dining experience that allows them to choose among our high-quality and affordable dishes from different cuisines. It’s a concept that is close to our heart because at the core of the company is a passion for introducing new flavors and dynamic restaurant concepts to the public. This time, we’re bringing all the restaurants we love under one roof,” says Eric Dee, Chief Operating Officer of Foodee Global Concepts.
Hook by Todd English is now only available in The Food Hall. Specializing in a seafood menu offered through Platters that comes in Raw, Grilled and Fried, Hook’s must-trys include their Beer Battered Fish and Chips, Pan Seared Halibut, Spicy Salted Egg Prawns and Torched Nigiri.
Burger lovers can enjoy Pound’s juicy offerings at The Food Hall, starting with their Double Backyard Cheeseburger, Crispy Chicken Burger, and Pound Foie Gras Burger.
The Grill is an exciting new addition to The Food Hall, as well as its hallmark food station offering a wide variety of premium steaks at affordable prices, such as the Petite Rib Eye Steak is available for only P890 while the Flat Iron Steak at P680, Braised Lamb Shank, The F.H. Half Chicken, Braised Beef Cheek and The F.H. Pork Chop.

Last but not least, Dessert. First-time diners at The Food Hall have to try the OMG Lava Cake, and The Bomb, a white chocolate dome (homemade chocolate brownie, banana and dulce de leche ice cream cake) poured with melted salted caramel sauce.
Foodee Global Concepts is also expanding this year, opening four more Pound branches and 2 more Flatterie branches.
Dee says, “With the relaunch of The Food Hall, guests can expect the same premium dining experience in an unfussy yet sophisticated setting, with well curated food stations that offer freshly prepared dishes, more menu options and affordable lunch sets.”
