First Bite: 100 Revolving Restaurant

I’ve always wanted to visit MDC 100 Revolving Restaurant. I can’t believe it that I have never heard of the place till I met Chef Jessie, the head chef of the establishment. A carousel ride while having dinner? Why not?! However, my plan to visit gets pushed back all the time to the point that I got tired of planning to visit. One night though, it finally happened!

Hello, 100 Revolving Restaurant!
I could have been giddier to finally be at the restaurant I’ve been eying for months if only I wasn’t too hungry. There were only a few diners when we arrived but service was slightly slow.

R went with the Dragon Maki (PHP500) and Angus Rib Eye Steak (PHP1,350). I went with the Balut Surprise by Chef Jessie (PHP300), Cheese-Spinach-Mushroom Soufflé (PHP360, regular | PHP500, large), and Duck Adobo “A la Pael Romualdez” (PHP850).
The wait basket was a long wait! I could sense R becoming grumpier and grumpier every time the restaurant moves an inch. Well, the servers said that they were still baking a fresh batch when we arrived.
After a while, the Dragon Maki, shrimp tempura with cucumber and kampyō (dried shavings of calabash) wrapped together and topped with sesame seeds, arrived. It would have been a great dish if only it was not wrapped loosely. It was falling apart.
The Balut Surprise arrived next. I find this one interesting as they placed a whole balut inside. The clear soup represented the soup that comes with balut and to add a bit of flavor, a few strips of vegetables were added. 
The soup was pretty light and was a good appetizer.
The soufflé arrived next and it was pretty good. Even without the cheese, the soufflé was already flavorful. 
I love the creaminess and softness of this dish.
The duck adobo though was too salty for me. I had to eat it with rice. There were also some parts that were a bit “gummy”. I hate to admit but I made a wrong move in ordering this one.
Next served was the steak and it was quite ordinary. I like Myron’s President Steak better.

I guess people visit the place not really for the food but the experience. I liked that I got a 360⁰ view of the city and there were fireworks too that night! Overall, it was still a nice dinner.

100 Revolving Restaurant is located at 33rd Floor, MDC 100 Building, E. Rodriguez Jr. Avenue, Corner Eastwood Drive, Libis, Quezon City.
