Exclusively at Solaire Resort and Casino, Raina and I joined our foodie friends to a luxurious dining experience taken to spectacular new heights. For the first time in the Philippines, launched April 3, 2018, Dinner in the Sky will deliver Solaire’s signature fine dining paired with a breathtaking view of Manila’s skyline. Brought to us by the MMI group, Dinner in the Sky is a unique dining attraction unlike anyone has seen before in Manila. Every week, this high flying attraction features Solaire’s top chefs.
We registered at Solaire’s VIP lounge around 6:30 PM, where we were served complimentary drinks. The Pinot Grigio was zesty with a hint of green apples!
By 7 PM, we all lined up outside to board the “flight”. We had to deposit our bags in individual lockers before proceeding to our seats. Each person was given a number during registration, which also determined our seating arrangement.

For our first flight, we were blessed to have been served by South African Chef Hylton Le Roux of Waterside with Latin inspired cuisine.

Our First Course of the flight was the Tuna Tiradito on aji Amarillo paste with lime pickled red radish and cassava crunch. It was light, tangy, and slightly spicy–a perfect start to a culinary degustation.
The Second Course consisted of Anticuchos de Pollo which is a popular Peruvian skewer with tamarind habanero glaze, mojo verde, baby beetroot, and crispy cancha corn. The chicken meat was tender, juicy, and bursting with flavor.

Next up, our Main Course was the Cuban-style Pork Belly, slow cooked in orange juice concentrate for two days and laid on mojo sauce, agave roast baby carrots, and spicy refried beans. The pork belly was slightly tangy, extremely soft on the inside and crunchy on the outside. A real treat for pork lovers!

Finally, for dessert, we were served a deconstructed cheesecake dish that we had to plate ourselves. The ingredients that were on hand was a Dulce de Leche Cheesecake dome, pralines and chocolate texture. Prior to serving, Chef Le Roux challenged us to come up with best design and the winner is awarded two signature drinks from Waterside. While everyone tried their hardest to impress, I simply had fun putting my dessert together, and guess what? I won the challenge!

Raina and I proceeded to Waterside after dinner to get a Pisco Sour Apple (PHP 430) and a Pisco Sour Tamarind (PHP 430) while getting to know Chef Le Roux a bit more.
