Friday, June 05, 2015
The Nostalgia Dining Lounge at Oakwood Ortigas is currently having its Friday Night Classics wherein guests and diners can feast on US Angus Steaks and other best selling dishes of Chef Jerome Cartailler. Happening every Friday from 6pm to 11pm, Friday Night Classics hold the promise of a delightful dining experience people deserve at the end of a stressful work week.

With recent revamped that transpired at The Nostalgia Dining Lounge (formerly Oakroom Restaurant), its classic ambiance that exudes sophistication and elegance suggests best fit an equally impressive feast. In that regard, what could be more impressive than delicious dinner of steaks alongside some great sidings and sauces?

I visited The Nostalgia Lounge recently with my good friends Richie and Rina to check out their Friday Night Classics offering. Having dined there several times in the past, I have always been confident about Chef Jerome and his band of talented chefs. But still, the evening wasn't devoid of excitement since dining at Nostalgia with its impeccable service and great food is always - always a delight.

Our diner started with the usual basket of warm bread perfectly matched with creamy butter. Although complimentary, these breads - as I have said several times before in my blog posts - are not your run-of-the-mill kind of bread.

A salad sounds enticing to balance the meat feast we were about to get ourselves into. However, we figured if we must indulge, we should might as well do it hardcore. Good thing that Ms. Aleah Alam, Oakwood's PR and Marketing Executive suggest we each get a hearty bowl of Onion Gratin (Php375). The thick layer of Emmental Cheese on top of the savory soup was enough to made me decide that it's going to be one helluva delicious night, as expected.

The Friday Night Classic menu features a handful of Nostalgia's Signature dishes with emphasis on their steak selections. We all decide to get the three choices of steaks and share so that we could try everything - because among us friends, that's how we roll.

US Angus Striploin at Nostalgia Dining Lounge Oakwood Ortigas
We had the US Angus Striploin (Php1,560/8oz.), US Angus Tenderloin (Php2,215/6oz.), and US Angus Rib Eye (Php1,645/7oz.). All medium well. All impeccably executed

Diners are given the option to choose their preferred sauce to go with their steaks. Choices includes; Bernaise, Peppercorn, Bleu Cheese, Merlot Shallots, and Honey Mustard. We got to try the Merlot, Peppercorn, and Honey Mustard which all taste great but the Peppercorn really leaves a good impression to me.

Each serving of steak comes with the guest's choice of side dish. Choices includes Creamed Spinach, Sauteed Mushrooms, Baked Potato, French Fries, Mashed Potato, and Grilled Asparagus. We had the Creamed Spinach, French Fries, Grilled Asparagus, and Mashed Potato - all were great accompaniment to our steaks but the spinach for me was highly remarkable.

Of course, the night of feast wouldn't be complete without desserts - one of the many things that Nostalgia's kitchen do really well. And boy did we feast on delectable desserts to cap off the night and to somehow celebrate our dear Rina's birthday.

First on our dessert line up was this amazing Baked Choco and Hazelnut Cheesecake (Php320). Cheesecake is one of my favorite desserts in the world and Nostalgia's Baked Choco and Hazelnut Cheesecake melt my heart I was so close into finishing the entire slice all by myself and asking for another one. It was dense, smooth, and silky in texture while the flavor was reminiscent of Nutella only way creamier.

We also had the Deconstructed Black Forrest (Php325) which is still astounding as ever. I remember having it during my last visit and to this day, I am still impressed at how well it was executed. The Tartufo (Php325) was equally impressive.  It is essentially made with Nespresso coffee infused mousse served with ganache and seasonal berry coulis.

Of course, the ever reliable New Zealand Ice Cream Selection (Php180) was still ever present complete with different toppings served on the side.

Great food coupled with enjoyable conversation fueled us that night. And during the time when all of us were busy dealing with slices of manly meat in front of us, the soothing music from Nostalgia's talented pianist serenaded us.
