SM Southmall re-launch to a new direction in shopping, dining and entertainment

SM Southmall re-launch
Southerners are happy to hear that news that SM Southmall was relaunch few weeks ago and it now bears a new direction to an enjoyable experience in shopping, dining and entertainment. Me and my family go to this mall and its one of the most OKAY mall for us here in the South, the Okay means is that we love the mall's offering when it comes to restaurants, shopping, Imax movies, Ice skaring and many more. Its a mall that completely stand out from other malls in the South, because its the only one that can offer everything.

When the Food Street was opened, from the 1st time we saw the new and incoming restos there, we at home decided to check out and feel the mall's new changes, then we found out that the Food Street is the most comfortable area for dining, we love the spacing of each resto and also keeping it away from the event center and have a nice comfy dining with any noise. Or if ever there's an event at the Food Street, you can go directly to their al fresco dining area outside and feel the nice air and also ambiance of a warm lighting and nice accommodation. We taught that SM Bacor and SM Molino will be the best mall for us here in Cavite, but then the SM Southmall is the most recommended mall if you are living in the South. Well, sometimes others, but my itchy feet always bring us here.

Its just a 30 minute drive away from Bacoor City, when there's a traffic in Las Pinas, add more 30 minutes hehehe.


Let's check out the launching event that I covered last Nov 17th.

The Foodstreet is still the main attraction here, for me it’s the perfect dining venue for a mall. Other SM malls should follow this direction.
