Last Monday, we celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary in Discovery Suites Manila. I have arranged to have our dinner inside our suite instead of having it in 22 Prime where it is crowded as usual. Also, we need privacy and we won’t feel at ease to have our photoshoot with many people watching. I am really thankful to the management who extended their assistance to us in this special event; however, I have to share my thoughts about dinner.
I requested for a set-up in our suite because of privacy issues– I was informed that it will be charged P1,000 for this. I agreed–thinking that it would be something really romantic like seeing the candle-lit table and other decorations. I was surprised to find out that they just placed a tablecloth and nothing more… Honestly, I felt like we paid too much for the service. Then, the foods were served. Mr. Albert Fernandez, the F&B manager, even went to our suite and explained to me everything about our dinner. He was very polite and professional while we were there even in our email conversations.
I ordered Wagyu Sirloin Steak for hubby- (P1413.24 net). While I was taking a shower earlier, a staff from 22Prime called to ask if he wanted it to have medium done or well done. He preferred to have it medium done and according to him, it tasted good:-) I couldn’t say anything about the steak because I don’t eat meat (except chicken and burger patty).
For myself, I ordered Roasted Airline Chicken (P1076.24 net). It was just okay– nothing really special about the taste, but the chicken meat was soft. I liked the mushrooms and the vegetables though.
I included Lobster Truffle Mac & Cheese (P462.02 net) in our dinner because I love pasta. For this, I will give them thumbs up. I super looooove the cheesy pasta and the noodles were cooked al dente. I must say of all the foods that we ordered, only this one deserves its price.
The Garlic Roasted Potatoes (P315.96 net) only looks appetizing. I was looking for the garlic taste but it was bland 🙁
For dessert, I chose Chocolate Goddess (P380 net). I loved the taste of the chocolate and berries, but I wasn’t able to eat much because I was already full at that time. Being a chocolate lover, i must say that it was divine. It’s just that the serving was too small that makes it overpriced.
The last in my list is the Strawberry Mango Iced Tea (P489.20 net for 1 pitcher). I didn’t order wine because I do not want to get dizzy and we still have to shoot for the anniversary video (winks). That was refreshing and even the kids enjoyed the drink.
Overall, it was okay, but it could have been better if only they made it more romantic. I will still recommend 22 Prime especially to those who go for fine dining.
