Acacia Hotel (part 4): A Steakhouse and Treetop Lounge.


...continued from (part 3): Lurra Wellness Spa.


A Steakhouse

T and I have been looking forward to our dinner at A Steakhouse, Acacia Hotel's newest restaurant, which serves USDA prime beef, along with the freshest catch of the day, in a fine dining setting.




Our server is Alaizza again who gives us complimentary bread with chicken liver spread and tapenade while waiting for our food.







After that, she serves us amuse-boushe (a single, bite-sized hors d'Ĺ“uvre) of spicy buffalo wings.  




For my main, I order the 350g USDA Prime Grilled Rib Eye Steak (PhP2,010/$43.50++).  The sauces available are Demi Glace, Mint Jelly, Wild Mushroom, Red Wine, Bernaise, Peppercorn, and Horseradish Cream.  We get to choose two and I pick Wild Mushroom and Peppercorn.  The steak is tender and the serving is big so it can be shared by two to three people.




For his main, T orders the Chilean Sea Bass (PhP980/$21.30++) which is pan fried and seasoned with salt and mixed peppercorn.  It comes with one sauce and T chooses Bernaise.  




For my drink, I order again from the Healthy Juices menu and get the Stress Buster (PhP300/$6.50++).  It's a refreshing drink made of fresh apple, carrots, and cucumber and is said to remove stress, revitalizes the skin, sweetens the breath, and helps regulate sugar in the body.




T is still in the spa mood (read my blog post about Lurra Wellness Spa) so he orders Earl Grey Tea (PhP115/$2.50++).  It comes in a cool contraption that keeps the teapot hot throughout dinner.




Other best sellers in A Steakhouse's menu include the Creamy Lobster Bisque, Oyster Rockfeller, USDA Prime Grilled Fillet Mignon, Lobster Thermidore, and New York Style Cheesecake.

And for their 4th anniversary, A Steakhouse's 350g USDA Prime Grilled Rib Eye Steak (the one I ordered) will only be PhP1,300 nett instead of PhP2,010 nett!  It's available for lunch and dinner for the month of October.





Tree Top Lounge

After dinner, T and I are invited to the Tree Top Lounge which is a secret al fresco lounge at the topmost floor of Acacia Hotel.




The Tree Top Lounge has a Tapas Buffet offering unlimited tapas with your choice of wine or beer buffet from 6pm to 9pm daily at PhP780 nett.






As suggested by our server Michelle, I order Tree Top Lounge's Cocktail of the Month called Watermelon Soju which is blended Soju and watermelon.  I ask Michelle what Soju is and she tells me that it's one of the most popular drinks in Korea.  When I take a sip, I am surprised that it just tastes like soda!  T, on the other hand, orders Ashes (PhP210/$4.50++) which is a mix of Canadian whiskey, peach schnapps, triple sec, and sweet & sour mix.




T and I spend this time talking until we feel sleep taking over our brains again :)
