The Salmon in Madgascar sauce & Bagnet Bicol Express lacked flavor.

Had the Bicol sampler and adobong pusit. Liked everything even the portion size. And to top it off, it was affordable! 128077

You can visit this swanky restaurant at the lobby of The Oriental Legazpi, an equally swanky hotel nestled on a hilltop overlooking Legazpi City.

I got to have lunch here on a school day. So how could I, an average student with an average allowance, bring myself to such extravagances? Well, this is where my mom comes in.

My mom was at The Oriental to attend a meeting for work. Since she was in the city, she invited me to join her there for lunch and well, I simply couldn't say no to that. I have more stories about The Oriental but I'll let you in on that later 128540

So from the looks of the stylishly minimalist restaurant--clean colors, classy geometric furniture and furnishings, glass panels stretching from the floor to the high ceilings that provide a bright, bird's-eye view of Legazpi--this place called for an armed wallet. And call an armed wallet, it did. (ily mom)

I immediately trained my eyes on the blueberry cheesecake at the pastry display the minute I had walked in. Then and there, I knew exactly my first order. It came a short while after the waiter had gone with our orders and there was no delay found in pouncing on my prey. The verdict: it was alright. The slice was huge. But let's just say I prefer cheesecakes with a soft, wispy consistency over theirs which is more solid. And at P100+, this must be the priciest blueberry cheesecake you'll find in these parts.

It took a pretty long time for me to select what to really have for lunch. On top of the three-digit prices, they all come in hefty servings for three or more people and we didn't really want that. Diet eh. Loljk. I ended up ordering Fish 'n Chips (pictured above), just one of their appetizers, which goes around for more than P200 + a plate of Jasmine rice. Like all their items, it was sure plenty for the two of us. There were six battered fish but they were jumbo-sized, and a bunch of fries. But more importantly, they were really, really delicious. Tender and flavorful and very filling. And this is just their appetizer!

I also got to try their Oreo milkshake. What can I say? Who wouldn't love a big, foamy Oreo milkshake?

Jasmine is mainly intended to cater to guests of The Oriental, but if you've got the budget, pay a visit and experience literally high-rise dining in Legazpi City 128515

Speaking of, I said I had more stories about The Oriental. Well, that's because I got to spend the night there for FREE!! More on this in a separate review woot!

The Hilltop sandwich (clubhouse) was normal.
The fries were done the way I like it (soggy and salty). I didn't get to finish it though. I wasn't as hungry as I thought I was. The pili pana cotta was great. Needed more pili flavor though. But if you're a fan of pana cotta, you'll like this unique twist for this region. I think they have big servings. Especially for the pana cotta. ;)
