100 Revolving Restaurant

I've been wanting to post something about the 100 Revolving Restaurant in Eastwood in Quezon City. The restaurant is a popular lunch or dinner venue for corporate types, families as well as couples. The latter include those on a date where the one probably takes his/her partner out for an impressive meal. And impressive is really a word to describe the food and not just the views you can get from the revolving restaurant. I'll let a few photos speak for the restaurant. These are not professional photos, taken only with my trusty BlackBerry.

It's no surprise that the food is really good at 100 Revolving Restaurant because the chef is the renowned Chef Jessie Sincioco of Le Souffle fame. I was a bit surprised though the first time I ate there when we had guests over from Japan, Indonesia, Vietnam and Thailand for a meeting of our research group. I wasn't able to recognize some items on the menu that were signature dishes of Chef Jessie's. 

And so I made sure that I would be back a next time. The timing was actually great and it was a spontaneous thing I brought up with the Clairvoyant whom I picked up early from her office. It was not difficult to convince her to have an early dinner considering we were there at around 5PM - perfect for catching the sunset and getting our main courses just before one full revolution of the restaurant. We'll be back again soon. Medyo ma-traffic lang in that area, which is usually the deterrent for people who might want to enjoy a splendid meal at the restaurant.
