Sumptuous Pre-Christmas Dinner at 22 Prime, Discovery Suites OrtigasMonday, December 07, 2015
One night they went out over the stillness of evening breeze, a cry, a gentle cry. The sea did not hear the cry as it is fathom by its own voice, the earth did not hear the cry for the earth slept… there are only 2 men who heard the cry – the shepherds and the wise men…
Gee... I still remember the poem I had recited when I was in college. It was month of December and that was all about the star of our celebration – Jesus Christ! Well, the true meaning of Christmas should be spent with Him and be grateful and thankful for all the blessings and love He bestowed upon us throughout the years and of course, with the people you love and care around.

In line with that, I know, just like me, most of us are already planning on where and how they’re going to spend their Christmas with their love ones. As for me, no plan yet, but definitely I would be spending the first half of the day at work, but nevertheless, I am sure it’ll be an all-out fun, a celebration for His birthday and a gift-giving day with my families and friends afterwards. However, for those who are looking for an option let me share with you my pre-Christmas dinner at 22 Prime, Discovery Suites Ortigas. It has store something that would make our Christmas season merrier, more wonderful and something that would give an extra oomph on the season of gift-giving.
Dinner started with different cocktails such as Breakfizz of champions, Pierre Collins and Foie Old Time’s Sake. But since It was a fine dining dinner, I liked my Beringer Chardonnay and/or red wine to be paired with the start of the dinner, the USDA Angus Prime Rib Eye. Which is, so far, the best steak I’ve ever tasted. You can also have it medium-rare or well-done whatever your preferences are to make your sumptuous meal even great, Chef Anthony Raymond will surely adjust it for your likings. More so, a Double Smoked Bacon Turkey Roulade is also available. Though chardonnays can also be paired with Foie Grass Terrine, a petite green with dried fruit compote and red grape gastrique salad.

And there was the Pumpkin Bisque with Melted Leeks and Crab Ravioli which tasted so creamy and yummy. Having this soup alone can already make your Christmas dinner one of a kind and what’s even more exciting was the dessert buffet by Chef Alvin Lucero. Gee… a different kind of chocolates and cakes were served on the most crave-able and unique table setting. Well, this is way too perfect for the kids or even kids-at-heart to just stay in one place. Can’t wait to have my nieces to try it for themselves and I am sure no more chasing here and there as this is a delightful buffet table to keep them busy.
