I love happy hour! I love it for the cheap, good food more than the drinks. I was already quite satisfied with the food choices at PassionFish until Sha told me it was nothing compared to Ruth’s Chris happy hour menu.
It’s been more than a decade since I last ate at Ruth’s Chris and I forgot what their steaks taste like. All I remember was it never made an impression on me that’s why I’ve never been back.
This was the elegant main dining room.
This was the bar area across it.
All the food and drinks on the happy hour menu cost $7 only!!!

I just loved my drink called Moscow Mule. The ingredients were Smirnoff, Canton ginger liqueur, fresh lime juice, splash of ginger ale. It tasted just like an adult and amped up ginger ale. They served it in a big glass, maybe 10 to 12 oz. It was really a great deal at $7.

The problem with the food being so cheap at $7 each was ordering way too much food. I wanted to try so many things that we ordered 5 entrees for 3 people.
This was my only lobster roll during the whole trip. I liked the way it was lightly dressed and the taste of the fresh, sweet lobster was very vibrant.
New England Lobster Roll
My super duper favorite dish of all was the spicy lobster. It tasted just like the rock shrimp tempura at Morimoto and Nobu but with lobster. Can you imagine how extravagant and indulgent that was for a person who rarely sees lobster in the menus of the restaurants in Manila?
I’m not ashamed to admit that I ate this entire order by myself. I didn’t share any with Sha and John. Well, they live in the USA and can eat this anytime, right? If I wasn’t already so full I would have ordered another one of these spicy, creamy, crispy nuggets of seafood love.
I ate some of the steak and I must say there was a generous amount of beef for one sandwich. The taste and quality was excellent.
Steak Sandwich with Fries
The burger was a bit dry and bland but the beef still tasted like really good steak. We also ordered the awesome tenderloin skewers served with salad greens and a sesame soy sauce dressing.
Prime Burger with Fries
This is how to eat more food without getting too full fast. Don’t eat the bread! Sha and I passed on the bread but John couldn’t resist eating them.
Again, pat on our backs, we did a good job clearing our plates. I may never get to eat in the main dining room since I loved the happy hour food so much. I love happy hour and I will see you again Ruth.
