So much hyphenation used in a single blog title. I know. 😀
Despite my prominent collarbones, almost-flat stomach, and generally slim body, yes, I DO EAT. And I really love eating out, especially when it involves food served in big portions, but sold in affordable prices.
So, let me tell you a story. Back in 2012, when I was still in college, my boyfriend kept telling me about Snakyard – a food stall inside J Centre Mall that sold classic Mac n Cheese, which he probably knew I would like. However, due to school work and life, I wasn’t able to drop by Snakyard until they moved to the mall’s food court and started serving delicious Pesto Herbed Pork Chops that impressed me at first bite.
Since then, we have become regular customers, and have tried basically EVERYTHING on their menu.
All those years I kept debating with myself whether to blog about it or not because, to be honest, sometimes I like being selfish and not sharing particular information with other people. So, I stuck with posting pictures every now and then on Facebook or Instagram, without really talking much about it. But there’s no use keeping it a secret now. It has become a lot of people’s go-to restaurant over the years and this review is long overdue.
Fast forward to 2018 and I ended up in Streetyard, the second branch of Snakyard, located in Parkmall. Much to my delight, I got to enjoy my long-time favorites again, thanks to the owners Charry and Jaren!
Snakyard and Streetyard are well-known for their Pork Chops, and let me tell you why.
Pesto Herbed Pork Chop
This is the classic chop that I was talking about previously. The dish that kept me coming back for more. Just look at that big slab of pork smothered with butter and pesto. It’s the ultimate comfort food, I tell you.
Sour Cream Chop
Shortly after the Pesto Herbed Pork Chop was added to the menu, came the Sour Cream Chop. For all my fellow pinoys out there who love to make a sabaw out of gravy, the sour cream sauce on this dish tastes great not only with the meat, but also with the rice. So, sabaw away! lol
Then came the Hang-Over Chop, which became my new favorite. The sauce is creamy, cheesy(?), spicy, and kind of has hints of Indian flavors in it. It’s a great pick-me-up for a slow day. I’d rave about how much I love it, but I think it’s better if you try it yourself. 😉
My other favorites…
Streetyard’s creamy Carbonara is something that even my now lactose-intolerant self could not resist. For only 90 Pesos, I’d say the serving is pretty decent if you compare it to restaurants that serve pasta dishes priced above 100 pesos.
If you’re not going to Streetyard for lunch or dinner, you can enjoy some nachos with your friends, or by yourself. A group serving is priced at 185 Pesos, while a solo serving costs only 70 Pesos. Both come with a salsa dip and meaty cheese sauce, with a choice of beef or pork.
Can’t find the time to make a trip to the restaurant to enjoy their pork chops and other delicious dishes? Don’t worry!
You can now order these through the Foodpanda app and have your favorites delivered straight to your home or office!
As a regular customer, I’m looking forward to more menu options in the future. But for now, I have these as my go-to whenever I want to satisfy both my hunger and my cravings, without having to hurt my pocket too much!

Thanks again to Streetyard for having us! The food coma right after was worth it. 😀
