Friday Night Classics at Oakwood's Nostalgia Dining Lounge
Tomorrow is Friday-pay day once again, and besides your bank accounts being filled to the brim (how we wish!), there are also bills to pay and deadlines to meet as the weekend closes. More so, the most dreaded day of the month is here again. Friday pay day equals carmaggedon day. So, why not let the traffic subside and have a cozy dinner? Your old-time favorite steak perhaps?
If you happen to be in the Ortigas area, one of the best places to have steak is at Nostalgia Dining Lounge. Perfect timing because on Fridays, the restaurant offers the classics prepared by the Executive Chef Jerome Cartailler.
Aptly called "Friday Night Classics," the menu includes an array of starters such as the Caesar salad, gambas, and my personal favorite, the French onion soup (a warm and comforting bowl of onion gratinee topped with melted Emmental cheese. The starters are served in huge proportions, so if you're having steak for your main course, it is best that you split your soup and salad into two to make room for the feast ahead.

My brother had the US Angus Striploin. This 8 oz. slab of meat is lean yet succulent. He had the Merlot shallot sauce and sauteed mushrooms on the side which I must say complemented the meat perfectly.
