100 REVOLVING RESTAURANT (JONAHS' BIRTHDAY)

And once more I am back in 100 REVOLVING RESTAURANT!

It is the birthday of our friend Jonahs (aka John Lloyd he he he he) and his beautiful wife Ann wanted something special where the BP Group could eat, dress up, and take lots of pictures (as usual). So with that, I suggested 100 REVOLVING RESTAURANT by Chef Jessie since my family had such a great time when we celebrated my Wedding Anniversary, and my officemates loved the food when Maru Sotto treated us for his birthday. Another big factor for us in choosing this restaurant was that it does not get jampacked with people so I'm sure we could take a lot of pictures without getting weird looks from people. (Something I'm very used to. I'm not sure about my friends though).

So it was set: a Friday night with my favorite BP Group (sorry it's a secret what it means) to eat, dress up, gossip, and take LOTS pictures.

Oh and to celebrate Jonahs' birthday too!

Sorry John Lloyd! Ha ha ha ha ha!





100 REVOLVING RESTAURANT!





I originally reserved a table by the window in order to maximize the experience of the 100 REVOLVING RESTAURANT. But there were some KJ's who felt dizzy with the slow rotation in that area so we switched to the "stable" area with the wooden floors.

Tsk.. Tsk.. KJ's!

Ha ha ha ha!



ROLL CALL!

Birthday boy Jonahs (who is turning the big 4-0 hence the birthday celebration) and his wife Ann, who was my College barkada. 





Mareng Chel and hubby Abel! 



They also brought with them handsome baby Tobey whom I named as my new godson whether they like it or not. Ha ha ha ha!




Mareng Gail of GLOG and hubby Pareng Jun (aka Edward Cullen... he he he he).



 

Mareng Gem and Pareng Joji, the oldest couple in our group. Har de har! Ha ha ha ha! Yeah right.



And of course... Hold your breath...

ERICJAZ FOODIES!!!

Ermaygaaad we look good!

Sorry love your own. Ha ha ha ha!




Our server that night in 100 REVOLVING RESTAURANT was always smiling, ready to help (with pictures... ha ha ha ha!), and got everyone's orders and bills right!





As always, we were given complimentary bread and spread in 100 REVOLVING RESTAURANT. I loved this as it was a blend of red and bell peppers, parmesan cheese, fresh herbs, and swimming in olive oil.  What I do is slather on a generous helping of the butter then top it with the tomato and peppers mixture.




One bite and I'm in appetizer heaven! Even if I would only be eating THIS in 100 REVOLVING RESTAURANT, I would go home a happy lady!





Ordering up!

(Me: "I want some dinuguan, chicken joy, happy meal, and fa la la la la la la la laaaah!")





The pogi hubs.... 





The "always right" wives... HA HA HA HA!

Kidding! With the way we're seated, you would think we were in some sort those "quickie date" thingies.


Now brace yourselves...
FOOD IS COMING... 
or IT'S HERE rather... He he he he!

Now I forgot who ordered who. All I remember is what the Chinese Adonis and I had. Blame it in our being totally absorbed in each other. Blech....


100 REVOLVING RESTAURANT Onion Soup served the "classic" way (P260.00).




Ordered by the "classically" handsome birthday boy... NAKS!




Mareng Gail's 100 REVOLVING RESTAURANT California Maki (P350.00). I think she offered us to try the pickled ginger... He he he he he...




Mareng Gem's big goblet of Sangria.

Oooh... somebody's planning to get drunk tonight! Yihiii!





I don't really order appetizers since it would usually fill me up even before the main course, but I just HAVE to have 100 REVOLVING RESTAURANT'S Seared Tuna Salad (P395.00)!





This has been my favorite the last time I was at 100 REVOLVING RESTAURANT and I vowed (like a superhero) that when I return I would order myself up another plate of this delicious creation by Chef Jessie. 




Do tell me, what is NOT to love in this 100 REVOLVING RESTAURANT salad? You got a pile of fresh greens topped with shaved carrots, nori flakes, peanuts, sesame seeds, roasted garlic, AND slices of seared fresh tuna. This wonderful dish come together with a tangy wasabi dressing that truly plays with the taste buds. C'est Manifique!!!

I was really planning to share it and offered everyone at the table if they would like to split it with me. As usual, everybody ignored cute little ol' Jazzie so I was left to happily munch and express my ecstatic delight to the deliciousness of this salad on my own.




In no time... 

BURP!

Egad.. The 100 REVOLVING RESTAURANT Seared Tuna Salad was so good I was thankful nobody listened to me when I offered to share it. HA HA HA HA HA HA! Kidding.




For the main course, Mareng Chel ordered this 100 REVOLVING SALAD... este RESTAURANT Charcoal Grilled Baby Back Ribs (P700.00). She said she was not that happy with this order. 





Abel ordered 100 REVOLVING RESTAURANT Roasted Duck. I haven't tried this before but Mareng Chel said Abel was not a fan of it. 




I think cutie Tobey agreed... He he he he!




Birthday boy Jonahs had the 100 REVOLVING RESTAURANT US Black Angus Rib Eye Steak (P1,350.00) served with buttered vegetables and potato au gratin!





Me thinks our kumpare enjoyed his 100 REVOLVING RESTAURANT steak because this was immediately wiped out right after this picture was taken!




Mareng Aning had the 100 REVOLVING RESTAURANT Pasta Ala Chef Jessie (P795.00) which had an abundance of prawns, scallops, sun dried tomatoes, and mushrooms. 




I think Mareng Gail ordered the 100 REVOLVING RESTAURANT Carbonara (P450.00) with bacon and fresh thyme. 




Mareng Gem ordered the 100 REVOLVING RESTAURANT Prawns Thermidor and loved it! I had a taste of this before and YES, this is SOOOO delicious! I would eat THIS with garlic rice!!




Pareng Joji also relished his 100 REVOLVING RESTAURANT Assorted Seafood Gambas (P850.00) with its savory garlic laden sauce.  

Hey.. What do you know? I DID remember everyone's order! Score!



As for me and the Yubskers, we split a plate of 100 REVOLVING RESTAURANT Tiger Prawns in Curry Sauce (P950.00) because not only was I quite full from my salad, but the serving is enough for sharing.

This is my plate with the rich curry sauce and pickled papaya salad.





Check out my husband's very plain rendition of this seafood entree.... Yep! He's such a finicky eater! I think he even got peeved that our server forgot to remove the pickled papaya. Ha ha ha ha!






ERICJAZ FOODIES with our BP Group in 100 REVOLVING RESTAURANT




Later on our always smiling server brought out a cake for the birthday boy!




Wow thank you! 100 REVOLVING RESTAURANT did not just give us a slice of cake, they generously gifted Jonahs with a whole Tiramisu!!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JONAHS!




Don't worry you still look like.... 39? He he he he!





Seriously, even if you are already 64, I know somebody who will still love you and continue wanting to grow old with you. Yiihiii! Si Drew Barrymore!






It has become tradition for our BP Group to air out our appreciation and share what we love about the celebrant. I was not a fan of it before because I get very uncomfortable when I'm the center of conversation. But now I look forward to hear out what my BP Group will say about me the time I turn 30... He he he he he!

So here, we started sharing our fondest memory and loving message to Jonahs. My poor Chinese Adonis was first and we all know how he doesn't love talking much. He he he he he! He did give a very sweet "Happy Birthday" to our John Lloyd.





Up next was Jonah's BFF Abel who almost choked tears while giving out his message.... 





To which the birthday boy savored with his full heart.

BWA HA HA HA HA HA!





After Mareng Chel it was my turn. And though I HATE talking and giving out speeches, I was able to say a lot since we have known each other since College. 




After Mareng Gail, Mareng Gem gave a very knowledgeable testimonial for Jonahs...




Same goes for Pareng Jojie...





Pareng Jun's speech was short, sweet, and sosy. Ha ha ha ha! He had that mestizo accent when talking kasi. 





And of course, the last speech comes from mareng Aning!





Yihiiii!!!

"This special love that's deep inside of us... Will all reveal in TIME..."

Theme song!





And because of that, you'll be hearing the song "BE MY LADY" from Jonahs for life!!!!





By the way, if you think we were just talking doing our birthday message for Jonahs... Heller! Did we just met? We also ordered some of Chef Jessie's special desserts.

100 REVOLVING RESTAURANT Regular Vanilla Souffle (P300.00) was so nummy in our tummies!




So light but very scrumptious!!! I could just put my face in the ramekin cups and licked away if I wasn't feeling human that night!






My favorite was also the 100 REVOLVING RESTAURANT Regular Chocolate Souffle (P300.00)! It was deliciously fudgy without that cloying taste at all!




Coffee and souffle... Such bliss!

BTW, make sure to order your souffle while having your entrees since it takes about 30 minutes to prepare. The wait will surely be worth it!!!!




Jonahs generously offered to share his birthday cake with us. But we told him to just take it home to the kiddies and have another round of birthday song with them.



Now I did warn you that my group loves taking pictures right? Here are SOME that we took in the serenity of 100 REVOLVING RESTAURANT!

Enter if you dare...


BP Group... hug!




ERICJAZ FOODIES!

OMAYGASH I thought it was Annette Benning and Kenneth Peralta (Mark Anthony Fernandez or Kenneth Duremdes) at first... But at second glance... KAMI PALA???

Kidding! Just give us this one.. I think I'm having second childhood already. Ha ha ha ha ha!





Me and the ladies posing on our "day-off" beside lovely plants. He he he he he!




Mirror shot!

Thanks Mareng Aning for covering my "biceps".





When you see IT, you'll sh$% bricks... Ha ha ha ha ha!




I really super love my BP Group and I'm so thankful that we all got together. We all got our weird quirks sure but everyone shares our love for family, togetherness, motherhood, kiddie playdates, food, and PICTURES!!!

One thing is for sure, life sure got sweeter (and wackier) with them. I love you girls!

Sorry nalimutan na naman si birthday boy.

Ha ha ha ha ha!!!!

SO. THERE.

  1. Mare which is better , the Crisp salad or the seared tuna salad here?

    1. Mare it's difficult to give a straight answer because they both have different dressings and toppings:. The seared tuna salad here has a wasabi vinaigrette while the one at Crisp has one that is similar to bleu cheese. I find the seared tuna very light and appetizing while the other is heavier in the tummy and could be an entree. It really depends what you're feeling to indulge in for that day because both are equally delicious!

  2. - uy sige na, tell me na what BP Group means!!! Baden Powell ba yan, kasi mga girlscouts kayo? Birthday Party, kasi sunod-sunod na birthdays ang pino-post ko dito sa blog mo? Binibining Pilipinas, kasi mahilig ka mag long-gown? Tell me naaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!! hahaha...

    -haven't been to 100 Revolving Restaurant before, although parati kong kinukulit si The Partner. Di lang talaga namin afford. Bullet day I will lafang here. Remark my words.

    -Happy birthday Sir Jonah! Ang cute niyo pala. #manyaktalaga

    -OH NO! Sayang! Sana di kayo nag-transfer. I think half of the experience of eating there is the rotation itself.

    -Hi Mareng Gail! Vavavavooooom!

    -bakit biglang "hold your breath" pagdating sa inyo... di ka naligo, 'day? hehehehe...

    -uy pareho tayo! Ganyan din ako: butter muna then yung salsa. Tsalap!

    -Ang fuge ng mga husbandry! =) Pwedeng menage a cinq! hahahaha...

    -sige na nga, maganda din ang mga wives (napilitan! hahaha)... Seriously, though, you all look fab! Must be the lighting, hehehe...

    -ooooohhhh... that Seared Tuna Salad looks really good! Baka naman nag-offer ka nga sa kanila ng salad pero scary naman facial expression mo, kaya they declined, hahaha...

    -"C'est Magnifique" - my word of the day

    -That Prawns Thermidore!!! Piktyur pa lang, ulam na!

    -Homaygulay! I swear, tinalo na ni Eric si Richie sa pagka-picky eater, hahaha... kahit atsara pala di siya kumakain.

    -What a beautiful couple the celebrator and his wife make. Many happy returns!

    -Kailan ka mag-30 years old? Nung March (nung nag Death March)? Or nung May (nung may Hapon pa dito sa Pinas)? hahaha...

    -one of the items on my bucket list: to taste Chef Jessie's souffle.

    -What does BP mean na.... tell me naaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa... Waaaaaaahhhh... hahaha

    -Have a great Thursday Jaz!
