XOXO With Love from Discovery Suites' 22 Prime

Its February 1 , the start of the love month and like it or not  the countdown begins hahaha

I dont know how it is in your country but in my neck of the woods (Philippines) Valentines  are  taken  seriously.  The occasion is akin to Christmas in February.

Woe to the gentleman who forgets to send his significant other  some flowers , card or chocolates on that day.

Concerts abound and are  normally sold out.  Flowers of all kinds enjoy brisk sales. Chocolates fly off the shelves faster than you can blink. Cinemas  are full.  Traffic which is  horrendous to begin with becomes a nightmare of epic proportion.. But still, this day is celebrated every year without fail.

Restaurants  are fully booked despite their ridiculously expensive prices and  unimpressive menu. It is up to the discerning patron to separate the good ones  from the overrated ones..

Good thing there are restaurants that can be relied upon to  serve beautiful food in a gorgeous setting, with a view to boot.

Take 22 Prime for example. There are steaks and there are  22 Prime's delicious USDA steaks cooked to perfection.   The buzz  about 22 Prime and their steaks are true and I learned it first hand during lunch today.

Moreover it turned out 22  Prime also serve divine non-steak items .  Read on and drool.



Grilled Vegetable with  balsamic quesong puti and lemon foam

I was amazed at the shaved quesong puti. I have a mind to replicate that at home. The vegetables were grilled perfectly and were succulent . The greens were crisp and fresh. The balsamic dressing and lemon foam rounded all the flavors together.  This was a perfect  starter to prepare your taste buds for more delectable dishes

With Oyster mushroom, semi dried cherry tomato, cauliflower puree and truffle sauce

The presentation was beautiful.The cauliflower puree with truffle sauce was a dream. The oyster mushroom  provided the contrast in texture vis a vis the lovely puree. The salmon roulade was perfectly cooked. Scrumptious!

Moist chocolate cake with raspberry coulis and vanilla tuile

The heart shape mousse was a delight to behold and apropos for the occasion. The burgundy raspberry coulis and slices of  red strawberry provided the dramatic flair to an otherwise plain-looking-alabaster mousse on a white albeit textured round plate

Taste :  The  tanginess of the coulis  gave us a brief respite from the creamy sweetness of the mousse which is dangerously close  to becoming cloying without the acidity of the raspberry and strawberry The vanilla tuile married well with the whole ensemble. It strongly reminded me of  my favorite lengua de gato.  Once you take a bite of it you would not want to share it. Trust me hahaha

Yellow split lentil puree with spinach and paprika  foam

Thick , creamy and flavorful soups are what I love  and the soup above fitted the brief perfectly. The paprika was strong which I liked. Just break the bread stick all over the soup for texture.

With sweet corn puree, wilted greens, mushrooms and salsa verde

Cooked a perfect medium rare, the steak was juicy, tender, well seasoned. Now I know why  22 Prime is synonymous with fantastic USDA prime steaks. If you are a steak person, this is your happy place.

Not to be outdone, the sweet corn puree, wilted greens, mushrooms and salsa verde were delicious as well and paired beautifully with the delicious  steak.

The portion was more than generous. I know the hubby and the carnivorous piggery will be overjoyed to have their dinner here.

With mascarpone cheese and chocolate soil

This was a perfect sweet ending to a romantic meal. Im not usually a fan of tiramisu but 22 Prime's version converted me.  I tasted the coffee liqueur  which contrasted nicely with the mascarpone and chocolate soil. The pistachio sable provided the  texture and  nutty component. The chocolate soil help round up all the flavors together. It was so good

Rarely do I find a Menu that is perfect from the appetizer to the dessert.  Sometimes the appetizer and main are delicious,  only to be let down by the dessert or vice versa.

At 22 Prime though  the 3 course Valentine Menu for the couple  ( all 6 described above) were perfect in terms of flavor and texture, price , portion and concept. Thank you Chef Gerwin Bailon.

The menu for HER for example was dainty and feminine while the  one for HIM was earthy and robust.  But if you are more inclined to get your partner's menu ( like me ) by all means  do so. It is after all your night and your choice.   You can even order the same thing or order both sets and simply share. Its Valentine's Day after all.

Love, Love. Love.
