Create beautiful memories at Oakwood's Nostalgia Dining Lounge

What would you do if you could turn back time? I will definitely spend it with the parents and visit all the places that we used to frequent with the siblings in tow when we were still teenagers and cherish all the moment. Now that we are all grown ups, we havent had the time to see each other because they are all abroad. A little high and hello through social media would do if we are not busy with our jobs.  The moment I stepped inside the Nostalgia Dining Lounge at Oakwood Premier in Pasig, it suddenly brought me to the memory of the parents house. A harpist was playing The Times of your Life,  I smiled, stopped and savored the moment.  The interiors reminded me of everything I used to be. The pictured frames, the long table and even the choice of music that sorrounds the lounge. So surreal yet peaceful.

I was excited to see my name on the long table, seated with some of the blogger friends and familiar faces from media.

The new Nostalgia Dining Lounge is located in Oakwood Premier – Joy Nostalg Centre, sentimentality for the past and many other special occasions may be celebrated featuring an array of cross-continental classic cuisine and a touch of Asian – all specially created by resident French executive chef, Jerome Cartailler.

Chef’s Terrine – a pork and veal terrine flavored with Cognac

The first dish that was served was the Chef’s Terrine – a pork and veal terrine flavored with Cognac, which is an original recipe from three generations lovingly created by Chef Jerome’s grandmother who adored and loved good food, quality ingredients, and extraordinary flavors. The terrine requires time to prepare, allowing the balance of flavors to blend from the process of marinating until slow baking. The meat is tender and juicy.

Berkshire Pork “Milanese,”

The Berkshire Pork “Milanese,” which is based on Chef Jerome’s Italian favorite, the Osso Bucco, uses only the best quality of pork cuts in the world, the Berkshire Pork. It is then braised in a blend of white wine, orange and saffron, and tomato, topped with gremolata buttered fettuccine and a bone marrow crostini.

Chicken supreme filled with mushroom mousse, light gorgonzola sauce

The Chicken supreme filled with mushroom mousse, macadamia crusted salmon fillet with mini vegetables and Chardonnay sauce.  It was beautifully plated bursting with colors and flavors.

The dessert's name was Tartufo with Berries Coulis–Nespresso coffee infused mousse served with ganache .

Other must-try offerings include the Linguine Pasta Alla Vodka, Escargots in Puff, Tofu & Spinach Lasagna, and the Nostalgia Chicken Rice, among others. All are complemented with an ambience of classic art and design, nostalgic music, comfortable surroundings and friendly, customized service that relaxes with good, warm memories.

The Nostalgia Dining Lounge also houses three themed, private function rooms, all with a distinct interior and vibe that represents the international context of the main dining lounge. The Old Manila, which can accommodate up to fourteen guests, is traditional Filipino that’s reminiscent of the capital’s glory days.

 Bohemian Paris, which can accommodate up to six, comes with striking visuals and accessories with a youthful color palette that’s set in French architectural motif. It is sure to encourage dining, drinking and simply living!

 And lastly, Cosmopolitan Shanghai, which also accommodates up to six guests, is a mix of the old renaissance and the new, with walls adorned in Chinese hand-painted artwork, vibrant fabric and details, combined with traditional furniture and a unique oriental dining experience.

Recollections of our past truly matters – whether in events that stir special memories, places that evoke pictures in our minds of what has been, or simply keeping in our hearts those whom we truly care about. Relive them all and create brand new memories only at The Nostalgia Dining Lounge.

The Nostalgia Dining Lounge is at the 6th floor of Oakwood Premier – Joy Nostalg Centre along ADB Ave. in Ortigas Center. For reservations and more information, please call 637.7888 ext. 8603.
