Awesome ice cream. But now there's more to Mad Mark's Creamery & Good Eats than ice cream.
With the success of the first branch in Kapitolyo, Mad Mark's Creamery & Good Eats now has a second, much larger branch at Glorietta 5 offering a full menu from sandwiches to complete meals along with their signature artisan ice cream.
At the entrance of their newest branch, an antique ice cream churn along with some of the premium ingredients remind us of Mad Mark's Creamery & Good Eats beginnings: Hand-made, made-from-scratch all-natural artisan ice cream using the best and finest ingredients continue to be the key drivers to their success.
And now with a full menu, you can have a comforting meal and then some ice cream all in one place. Good food and great value, always a winning combination. And Mad Mark's offers a choice of grilled beef, chicken and pork dishes to suit your craving. Choosing your main dish at Mad Mark's is simple: Just select your main dish, choose from one of Mad Mark's special grilling sauces, and lastly, choose two sides. Mad Mark's Signature Steak, (P 225 Healthy 150g/P 285 Regular 200g/P 395 Feast 300g), USDA Angus Striploin with Bootstrap Steak Sauce, and a side of Smashed Potato and Rice. And for the price, this steak dish is a winner. Other sauces include Cream Mushroom Sauce, Roasted Nut, Ragin' Cajun, and Johnnie Double Black to go with their beef, chicken and pork dishes. You also have options for different sides, like Garden Grains, Grilled Corn Cob (seasonal), House Salad, and Bacon Potato Salad.
Or you can go for Mad Mark's Creole Grilled Chicken (P 195), tender grilled chicken covered in a flavorful Creole sauce with herbs and spice, served with rice and Tenn-Slaw. Mad Mark's also offers a a pork dish with its St. Louis Prime Grilled Ribs, ideal for sharing.
Mad Mark's also offers a full line of sandwiches, or as they call it at Mad Mark's, "Man Sandwiches," guaranteed to match any appetite. I go Mad Mark's Mariner (P 340 Full/P 180 Half), with fresh fish fillet on a Dutch crunch roll and topped with a creamy Mariner sauce. Rich and creamy, the sauce and vegetables perfectly complement the delicate flavors of the fish fillet. Another satisfying meal, and other options include a chicken sandwich (or the "Happy Camper"), a steak sandwich (the "Lumberjack") and a steak and chicken combo ("The Man").
When you visit Mad Mark's, you'll need to leave room for dessert. And Mad Mark's artisan ice cream is not to be missed.
The Rolling Dutchman, with a scoop of Mad Mark's signature Madagascar Vanilla Bean in between fresh English muffins spread with Nutella. Or you can have one spread with Cookie Butter, either way, both excellent choices. The best part is when you reach the bottom part of the sandwich, where the Nutella and ice cream settle as the bread absorbs all the flavors. Take a big bite and enjoy.
Or go for a double scoop with Mad Mark's Dark Roast Sumatra and Javan Hot Chocolate ice cream, a winning combo. The names says it all, as Mad Mark's sources all their premium ingredients from Madagascar, Sumatra and Java.
One bite and you know this is artisan ice cream, it takes a while for it to melt, and each bite is thick and chewy. Smooth, velvety and rich, and no air bubbles or ice crystals to get in the way of Mad Mark's pure and honest to goodness flavors. Seriously good.
Steak, ice cream and more, just can't get any better than that. And now you can find it all one place. Special thanks to Aaron Ngui of Mad Mark's Creamery & Good Eats for an awesome lunch.
Mad Mark's Creamery & Good Eats is located at the 2nd Floor, Glorietta 5, Office Drive, Ayala Center, Makati.
