THE YAPPY BUNCH were having a staycation in DISCOVERY PRIMEA for the birthday of the December celebrants and the Christmas season as well.

For our dinner that night, we decided that it should be somewhere special. We are after all celebrating something special anyways. We wanted to go out but we realized that since it's the holidays, traffic would be terrible and the restaurants would probably be jampacked (reservations are zero pa on weekends).

Aning and I decided that it would be best if we just stay put in the hotel and have dinner in TAPENADE. We remember how much we enjoyed the food before and I'm happy that this time, we would be with the boys. Yun lang, since it's a Saturday on a Christmas season, they cannot take our reservations for our big group of 20. Good thing that since DISCOVERY PRIMEA values their hotel guests (and because we're soooo CUTE), they finally agreed. 


TAPENADE is the restaurant in the ground floor of DISCOVERY PRIMEA that serves special Mediterranean dishes. 

Reservations were for 8:00pm dinner time but as early as 7:30pm, Team Santillana (THE POGI CEO AND WIFE) texted that they were already downstairs. Since THE YAPPY BUNCH we're all dressed up and pretty (he he he he he we're always fast), we went downstairs na to join them. 

After we placed our orders, TAPENADE served their complimentary bread and garlic infused olive oil. 

Finally, we're complete!!!!


Early birds Albert and Suet!


Jun and Mareng Gail!

Jonahs and BB Aning!

Gem, Jeorgina, and Jojie!

The kiddie table!!!!

Believe me, when we're together, Mati and Andrei prefer to sit with their friends!

Master Mati and Johans!

Andrei, Fritz, and Jelo!

The girls Jeorgina, Sky, Sasha, and Soleil!

BFFs Dani and Tiana!

PRIMEA really thinks of everything!!!!

Since the lights were dimmed in TAPENADE, they provided spectacles for guests who'll have a difficult time reading the menu. You'll just have to pick the grade!!!! Grabe right???

BB Anne's glasses for ordering! He he he he he!

Ordering up!!!!


Well.... For the cool part of the table anyways.


First on the table is my order of TAPENADE Stone Baked Feta Cheese (P460.00)!

Thick slices of Feta mixed with the salty and briny flavors of capers and sun-dried tomatoes. The stone pot is then filled with Honey and Greek Metaxa Brandy!

The result is a VERY HEAVENLY and ADDICTING spread!!! Soooo good and hugely recommended!

Next up is Yub's TAPENADE Pepperoni Pizza (P520.00)!

Oven baked and steaming hot. The crust had that toasty and light crunch. It was perfect with the gooey cheese!

For my main I got the TAPENADE Spaghetti Ala Vongole (P520.00)!

Fresh clams cooked in garlic, lemon, white wine, then mixed with al dente linguine!! 

Carbo loading because it's Christmas!

The bunsoy Andrei was feeling adventurous that night and got something different from his usual Carbonara.

He got the TAPENADE Bolognese (P520.00)!

Ground beef in rich tomato sauce then topped with Parmesan and whipping herb creme. He was able to finish this except for the meat. He he he he he!

As for the Master Mati, he craved for more carbs and got the Tapenade Risotto Al Nero (P480,.00)!

Creamy Risotto with Squid Ink then topped with Pan Roasted Calamari. 

He wiped this out in no time!

As for the others, they got some TAPENADE Soup of the Day (Pumpkin Soup at P290.00)!

TAPENADE Lamb Chops Scottadito (P590.00)!

TAPENADE Arroz Con Pato (P720.00)!!

TAPENADE Garlic and Shrimps (P590.00)!!!

TAPENADE Carbonara (P550.00)!

That's for little Tobey!

TAPENADE Spiced Lamb Kebab (P795.00)!

Besides their mains, Albert also got buffet the Salad Room (P880.00).

Sorry, I forgot who ordered who but some of my friends did order the same dishes. 

ERICJAZ FOODIES with our BP Family in TAPENADE!!!!!


Of course, we still stayed for chika chika. That is one thing that we will NEVER run out!

Our bill!

Yep! We divided the bill by families. He he he he he he!

A little while later, my friend mareng THE FOOD ALPHABET wife, dropped by to say hi. She was having dinner also with some friends upstairs and we got to chat a bit.

Great seeing you mare!

For "dessert", we had a mini-pictorial!!!

He he he he he he he!

The ladies!

And the guys!!!!!!

We also sang to our December birthday celebrants!

Advanced and Belated Happy Birthday guys!

(Advanced) Happy Birthday my baby!!!!!! He loved the song and cake!

It was SOOOOOO funny because while we were taking pictures of the celebrants, Gem passed by SEVERAL TIMES unaware of what was going on (because she was on her phone). 

We were all supposed to take a picture but she was walked behind Andrei, Gail, and Jelo!!!

At first we let her pass. 


Then she passed by the second time.

Me (sige lets wait for her): "Ayan she's gone! Smile!!!"

She passed by a third time and we were started laughing.

Me: "Ayan she's gone, okay 1... 2..."


Kaming lahat: "HUY GEM!!!! NAGPIPICTURE KAMI!!!"

HA HA HA HA HA! It was soooooooooooo funny!!!!

That's why when we had our family picture, we made sure there's a wall behind us so that Gem won't accidentally photobomb again! Ha ha ha ha ha ha!


Out of all the nice corners in TAPENADE, we chose this chic wall. Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!

I'm glad that we have all decided to have our Saturday dinner here at TAPENADE. This was indeed a special night so it's just fitting that we celebrate our weekend of BP togetherness somewhere nice as well.

Of course, I'm more happy that we were able to share TAPENADE with the boys. Besides being with their BP buddies, it's great that they're able to experience the ambiance, the food, not to mention the family-like camaraderie, in this popular DISCOVERY restaurant.

It was truly a wonderful night for all of us!!!!
