Weekend Getaway: Highlands Prime Steakhouse

[Part 2 of White Day Weekend Getaway] After lunch, R and I decided to ride a cable car to explore Tagaytay Highlands and it turned out to be a not so good idea because it was a really hot afternoon. Good thing we were prepared to swim. (Okay, I was prepared to just dip and do nothing else.) After bringing out the mermaid and merman in us, we decided to have dinner.

Hello, Highlands Prime Steakhouse!
The place has a very cozy feeling. Despite being a steakhouse, it didn’t have a snobbish ambiance to it.

R wanted to eat outside for the view but it was rather chilly that night. Anyway, we still went for it.
We decided to go for the following: Westfalian Barley Soup (PHP158), Sautéed Scallop of Hudson Valley Foie Gras (PHP920), Norwegian Salmon Steak (PHP880) and John Wayne’s Prime Rib (PHP2,598, 20 oz. | PHP1,998, 14 oz. | PHP1,380, 10 oz. | PHP1,008, 7 oz.). We also got some fruit shakes.
The barley soup, which was a mix of ham, carrots, celery and potatoes and blended with cream and egg yolk, was a good appetizer. It sure warmed up the tummy and was pretty light too.
The foie gras was also delightful! I loved the contrast in flavors of the foie gras and the pineapple bits.

While waiting for our main course, there were some fireworks a few miles from us and it was love. (I remember there were fireworks too when we visited 100 Revolving Restaurant. Lucky!)

I got so distracted by the fireworks that I totally forgot to take photos of the mains! So, I present, our half eaten mains.
My salmon was so-so. I guess I really am not a fan of grilled salmon. I prefer it baked.
The prime rib though was delicious. It was juicy and tender. R paired his steak with baked potatoes and wild mushroom ragout.
We ended dinner with an order of panna cotta which was really good. It was topped with grapes and mangoes which gave the smooth panna cotta an additional texture. 
Overall, it was a nice dinner. Plus, our server Mary Joy was funny. She only suggested juice for steak and she asked us to sit closer “para sweet”.

Highlands Prime Steakhouse is located at Belleview Drive, Tagaytay Highlands, Tagaytay City, Cavite. For reservations, call (046) 483-0820.
