Culinary Experience like no other at Top of the City

The first course served when we're all seated at the table were appetizers. Top of the Citi's French Hors d'Oeuvres were superbly appetizing to start our french meal.
The Smoked Salmon and Caviar Pie (P 500) is a delicious, sophisticated appetizer to start a special dining experience! Caviar Pie is a layered spread that consisted of croutons, cream cheese, onions, and ground pistachio topped with caviar and salmon. It is served with thinly sliced pieces of toasted bread.
Pan Fried Goose Liver Salad (P 995) The Shitake mushrooms go well with seared scallops, goat cheese, and parma ham. The balsamic sauce makes the salad plate even more heavenly.
Grilled Prawns and Mushrooms with Fresh Fruits and a Panache of Green Salad in raspberry vinaigrette dressing (P 695)

Now off to to main course:
My Duck Confit with Crispy Skin in Echalote Sauce (P 850) is a real winner! This flavorful French dish made with the leg of the duck. The duck leg was perfectly seared. The flavorful meat is moist and tender with a crispy skin.

Chicken Cordon Bleu in Lemon Butter Sauce (P 750)

We wrapped up our gustatory experience with Chef Jessie Sincioco’s famed Princess Carmen Sans Rival (P 250). It was a treat for Pistachio lovers like myself. This layered meringue dessert comes in layers of bread, buttercream, and of course, crunchy Pistachio bits!

I enjoyed the warm and relaxing ambience at Top of the Citi as my friends and I savored Chef Jessie Sinsioco’s best sellers.

The perfect view at the 34th Floor of Citibank, Paseo de Roxas, Makati City was truly a great match for a  top-of-the-world French dining experience.

Engaging Dining Experience at Tempura Japanese Grill

I love Japanese food. I'm not really a fan of sushi and sashimi though, but I do love tempura and katsu variants. I prefer my food cooked.

My introduction to Katsu further piqued my interest. As a foodie, I'd say that my superb Katsu experience at Tempura Japanese Grill justifies its premium price.
I have always wanted to try out eel and it is was yummy. The Deep fried eel with Japanese bread crumbs was really good. The Unagi Katsu is something that melts in the mouth. The breading seems to enhance the flavor. One serving comes with fresh shredded cabbage and teriyaki miso sauce.

I also love the Kurobuta of Tempura Japanese Grill because of its thick meat slices. Though deep fried, the breaded pork meat comes out tender. The tonkatsu sauce goes well with the premium pork loin cut which I find lean.
Kurobuta is the finest pork in the world mainly due to its softness and rich flavor. It is also known as the Black Berkshire pig.
The Salmon Katsu is perfectly cooked with the soft salmon fillet intact.

All these new Katsu-mazing Tempura Japanese Grill dishes are available in greater Metro Manila branches.

The Ramen Burger is a must-try! Its homemade beef patty comes with honey-cured bacon, roasted onion, sesame seeds, and garden fresh lettuce. Best of all, it is sandwiched between two pan-fried ramen buns!
Tempura Japanese Grill also serves thirst-quenching smoothies!

These offerings from Tempura Japanese Grill really deserve foodie raves. Try it sometime soon!

ABBA was one of the pop groups from Scandinavia that catapulted to fame on world stage in 1974 when it won the Eurovision song contest with Waterloo.
