Last week, I got to again visit Chef Jessie’s 100 Revolving Restaurant and enjoy lunch with the Miss Earth 2013 candidates. We were treated by Chef Jessie to a choice of either Tenderloin or Rib-eye, plus a Torte of our choice. I chose the Tenderloin, and then had the Macapuno Revolving Torte for desserts.
The Tenderloin steak is the kind of steak with the least fat. If you’re not dieting, unlike me, you might want to go for something else less expensive but more tasty than the Tenderloin. Let’s face it: fat is responsible for a big chunk of a steak’s flavor. And since the Tenderloin is more lean than fatty, it’s not as tasty as the other steaks. Thus, to make up for the lack of flavor, they wrap the tenderloin in bacon to give it more flavor. 100 Revolving Restaurant’s Tenderloin was extremely juicy, melt in your mouth kind of steak.
100 Revolving Restaurant’s Revolving Macapuno Torte was such a delightful plate of dessert. The Macapuno was perfectly sweet, and the core of the torte had pandan-flavored syrup(?). The bottom portion of the torte was crusty, giving you something to bite into and chew on. As with all of Chef Jessie’s dishes, plating is very crucial. And thus, this plate of Macapuno Torte came to be picture-perfect.
