Power Plant Mall - ANAther Travel Show

Power Plant Mall is a well-known and prestigious shopping center in Rockwell Center, Makati City. Established in 2000, it has become a prominent destination for locals and tourists seeking a high-end shopping and dining experience. Furthermore, the master-planned community is famous for its upscale and luxurious ambiance. The development was a mixed-use complex combining residential, commercial, and recreational spaces to create a modern urban environment. Power Plant Mall’s name is derived from its unique history—the mall was built on the site of a former power plant. This industrial heritage is reflecting in the mall’s architecture, which integrates old power plant structures with contemporary design elements, resulting in a distinct and captivating atmosphere. Moreover, the mall’s design and layout have been carefully planned to offer a seamless and pleasant shopping experience. Its open spaces, generous natural lighting, and lush greenery create an inviting and relaxing ambiance for visitors.

My day began with the usual hustle and bustle of the city, but as soon as I stepped into Power Plant Mall, the ambiance changed. The welcoming atmosphere instantly put me at ease. The mall’s architecture, with its open spaces and ample natural light, made it feel more like strolling through a modern park than a commercial center. I decided to start my day by exploring the retail stores scattered throughout the mall. From high-end fashion boutiques to well-known international brands and local designers, the diversity of shops caters to a wide range of tastes and budgets. The restrooms were clean and well-maintained, providing a comfortable space for guests. There were also plenty of seating areas scattered throughout the mall, offering a convenient spot to rest and people-watch. I also notice the cleanliness and maintenance of the entire place. It was spotless, and everything seemed to be luxurious.


After browsing through the stores, I decided to take a break and refuel at one of the many dining options available. Power Plant Mall boasts a diverse range of restaurants, cafes, and eateries, offering an array of cuisines to satisfy any craving. I decided to rest at Tsujiri, known for its matcha desserts. Its history can be traced back to 1860 when it was established in Uji, a region in Kyoto, Japan, known for producing some of the finest matcha in the world. We tried the Tsujiri Matcha Sundae for Php 305 and the Choco Lava moist cake for Php 245. Moreover, it was a mouthwatering sight with its vibrant green matcha ice cream, mochi, and whipped cream on top. Its matcha flavor was perfectly balanced, not too sweet, and the mochi provided a pleasant contrast in texture. The Choco Lava moist cake, paired with vanilla sundae, was equally tempting.

The warm and gooey chocolate center blended perfectly with the sundae, creating a harmonious combination of flavors. Throughout the years, Tsujiri has perfected the art of sourcing the best matcha leaves. Carefully grinding them to create a vibrant green powder that captures the essence of the tea. Its dedication to quality has earned it a loyal following not only in Japan but also internationally. Recently, it has expanded its presence beyond Japan’s borders. With branches in various countries, including the Philippines, where I had the pleasure of experiencing its delectable desserts at Power Plant Mall. Tsujiri’s menu boasts an impressive array of matcha-infused treats, from matcha soft serve and parfaits to cakes and other confections. Each item on the menu is crafted with precision and attention to detail. Ensuring that customers get to enjoy the authentic taste of matcha in every bite. Furthermore, I highly recommend trying their matcha creations.
