When I was in UAE and worked for a year. I witnessed vending machine dispensing anything you could imagine (from sim cards, perfumes, makeup palette, nail polish, gadgets and even gold!) But since I associate vending machine with snacks and canned sodas. I was surprised that there's an automat that dispense healthy food too. That was good news for a foodie like me.
I prayed that someday someone would invest in a vendo machine dispensing healthy meals ( organic power bars, pudding, and or a teriyaki steak bar) just like the one I used to dropped coins in Abu Dhabi. They also have bottles of naturally pressed fruit juices like kiwi, papaya, and a mixed of fruit drinks. The food was tasty and healthy. The price is reasonable enough for a pack lunch of your choices. I thought we should have those in our country. Until I got an invite to attend Robbie's Deli in a Hurry, SM Clark Pampanga launch.
Robbie's Deli in a Hurry is the first ever vending machine wall with a kitchen in the Philippines at SM Clark Pampanga. The launch on June 30 was attended by RDF’s CEO Robert H. Lo and partner Chef Sau del Rosario, RDF's executives and bloggers from Manila and Pampanga.
It was fun ordering from the vending food wall. I tried their food and it was honestly good and freshly cooked. You could see how the food was prepared. There are many choices from easy cooked/fried food to gourmet. I ordered one gourmet at php200. The gourmet variand has vegetable for a side and a cup of fried rice. Not bad for a gourmet food.
There are many choices from Robbie’s: On-the-Go, Lunch Box and Gourmet. On-the-Go features quick yet filling snacks and dishes like Pan de Embutido, Quezo de Pan de Ham and Pork Tonkatsu with Egg, all for PhP 50. The Lunch Box line includes meals like Barbecue and Sisig, which range from PhP 75 to PhP 100. Gourmet on the other hand, boasts of special dishes like Honey Glazed and Cheesy Beef Stew from Chef Sau del Rosario's menu.
