(Trivia: Manila Royal Hotel's Revolving Restaurant is credited to be the first in the Philippines located in Quiapo, Manila in the 1970's.)
We recently tried it with our Mercato partners, RJ and Vanessa, who are fans of Chef Jessie's food.
Here's our 100 Revolving Restaurant experience...
100 Revolving Restaurant is located at the 33rd floor of the Mercury Drug Corporate (MDC) 100 building -- the tallest building in the Eastwood area.
(Note: They say that this is the perfect place to propose because even if the girl is unsure about her answer, the revolving motion would convince her to say YES. :P)
Check out the classic Chef Jessie menu:
100 Revolving Restaurant Menu: Freshly Made Salads | Something Japanese, Soups | Main Course: Beef, Pork, Lamb | Main Course: Chicken, Seafood | Something High End | Sandwiches | Pasta | Wild Rice Risotto, Solo Pizza | "100" Desserts
Thanks to RJ, I've learned to appreciate ginger ale, which is good aid for digestion.
Vanessa ordered this fresh salad with sweet rasperry sauce and mushroom fries -- she loved it down to the last piece. :)
I love my salad, too! Abundant with slices of seared tuna, it's best eaten together with the nori strips and sweet wasabi sauce. The serving size is big enough for two people to share.
Just the way we like it -- hot onion soup topped with melted cheese.
100 Revolving Restaurant Drinks Menu: Drinks: Water, Coffee, Fresh Fruit Juice | Special Smoothies | MDC 100 Wine Menu | MDC 100 Glass Selections: Sparkling, White and Red Wine |Bottles of Sparkline Wine, Rose Wine, Dessert Wine | Bottles of White Wine | Bottles of Red Wine |On Corkage
Simple linguine pasta with the right balance of mushroom and truffle flavors.
My partner RJ is vegetarian and his favorite pasta at Chef Jessie's is the Spicy Putanesca. He liked it...just the way he expected a Chef Jessie dish to be.
Instead of steaks, we would often go for lamb chops, and Chef Jessie's version is served with 4 big pieces topped with her classic French sauce. The lamb was perfectly cooked, and the sauce had a good consistency and flavor that didn't overpower the taste of meat.
Vanessa's favorite -- milky-soft Chilean sea bass with creamy sauce, topped with foie gras. This dish is memorable for them because this was served during RJ and Vanessa's wedding.
This actually signals it's time for dessert!
Perfectly executed souffle with milk sauce. A solid ending to any Chef Jessie meal!
Overall, we like Chef Jessie's 100 Revolving Restaurant for its excellent and authentic French cooking, served the classic Chef Jessie way. The ambiance has a classic fine dining look but a bit old school.
It's best to order the dishes the Chef is famous for. The menu is actually familiar if you're already a fan of Chef Jessie and Le Souffle. We recommend the French onion soup, the seared tuna salad, the mushroom truffle pasta, the grilled lamb chops, the chilean sea bass with foie gras, and the souffles for dessert. They also have a good selection of wines that would go well with your meal.
But aside from the usual favorites, it should also be interesting to try something new from Chef Jessie. Are there any? Do you have recommendations?
So whether you're just searching for a quiet, romantic fine dining evening, looking to host an impressive business meeting, or celebrating a special milestone in your life, Chef Jessie's 100 Revolving Restaurant is the perfect place for you.
Budget is about P1,750/head for a 3-course meal with wine.
