Valentine’s Menu at Discovery Primea Luxury Hotel Makati

As part of our wonderful staycation at Discovery Primea a few weekends ago, Carl and I were given the chance to try the special menu that Tapenade is whipping up for this coming Valentine’s. Discovery has quite a number of Valentine’s deals available for the love month and I can’t wait to share them with you below. But first, have a look at the intimate meal we were invited to try.

Chandon Brut Australian Sparkling Wine: The meal started with a glass of bubbly that was crisp and not too sweet, just the way we like it.

Tapenade’s Salad Room: You’re first invited to step into Tapenade’s salad room which has to be one the most beautifully curated buffet selections in the city.

It has such a beautiful selection of local and imported greens (not to mention all you can eat fresh oysters!) and delicious cheeses, marinated fruits and vegetables, and homemade dressings. I would happily go back to Tepanade just for their salad room. It’s the perfect venue for a lunch meeting.

What’s also great about Tapenade’s Valentine’s Menu is that you and your partner get different dishes and are encouraged to share bites and mix and match to get a wider variety. Here were the dishes we were invite to try.


(For Him) Spanish “Arroz Caldoso”: Prawns, Mussels, Clams, Tomato Soffritto, Jamon, Saffron Broth 

(For Her) Provencal Potato Gnocchi: Porcini, Shitake, Button Mushrooms, Truffle Cream


(For Him) Grilled U.S. Beef “Mignonettes”: Fresh Mushrooms and Asparagus, Potatoes “Boulanger”, Creamy Onion “Soubise”, Red Wine Sauce

(For Her) Greek Seafood Yousevesti: Prawns, Clams, Orzo, Merguez Sausage-Saffron Broth


(For Him) Mediterranean Lemon Tart: Honey Lavender Ice Cream

(For Her) Italian Chocolate Panna Cotta: Aromatic Pears, Chocolate Crunch

The verdict: Everything that came out of the kitchen for this menu was hearty, seasoned to perfection and left us dreaming about it a few days later. If you’re still on the lookout for where to enjoy Valentine’s, we can’t recommend Discovery Primea and all their amenities enough. This is truly a luxury hotel worth trying.

Tapenade Restaurant is located at the G/F of Discover Primea 6749 Ayala Ave. Makati (Tel. # 955-8888)

Baby Barangay at Windward House Batangas

A few weekends ago, the Baby Barangay group was invited to spend two nights in Windward House: a magical beach house in Nasugbu Batangas that is available for families to rent.

It really doesn’t get more perfect than this.

I’ve written about Windward House in the past and you can check out that feature here. My dear friend and super blogger Patty Laurel-Filart recently shared her thoughts on our vacation and you can check her blog entry here.

So for this post, I decided to share some slice of life pics from our trip instead. I hope you enjoy them.
