It is a nice experience to share a breath taking view with someone special and close to your heart at the 19th floor of the Apple One Equicom Tower at Cebu Business Park – Blue Elephant.
Blue Elephant has one of the best panoramic view of the Metro. When the elevator doors open, you are greeted with the Blue Elephant dazzling with blue series lights above it. But the question now is which part of this restaurant should we dine? Blue Elephant has the Alfresco Dining and the VIP Lounge which you can choose if you have made reservations ahead of time.
The Alfresco Dining of Blue Elephant gives you the best view of the city lights while the VIP Lounge gives you that cozy feels of dining with the perfect service. We had to go with the VIP Lounge since we made tried to make a reservation about 30 minutes before we came. The good part is the VIP Lounge wasn’t full so walk-ins are still accommodated.
I just love the cozy-homey feels of the VIP Lounge. The staff suggested this area since there were a lot of waiting staff and it had a better service compared to the Alfresco Dining Area.
We had the following dishes: Fried Beef in Sesame Seeds, Carbonara, Beef Quesadillas, Fried Squid in Garlic, and Chicken Cordon Bleu. Let me start with my favorite dish down to my least favorite dish that I have tasted.
Fried Beef in Sesame Seeds. The Beef were fried properly and its flavor were the best especially when you dipped the beef in the sauce that it provided. It was an appetizer but I had it as a main dish.
Chicken Cordon Bleu. Though serve late so I hadn’t taken a photo of this dish. Anyways, they’ve used the best type of cheese which I forgot to ask. The chicken was quite juicy also not bland and dry compared how other restos cook this dish.
Carbonara. My least favorite. Having tasted an authentic Italian Carbonara made my standards a lot higher. I regret having to place a lot of pasta on my plate. The downside of this pasta is the white sauce. It was somewhat too sweet and definitely didn’t compliment the overall flavor of the carbonara.
