It feels good to just type in my good ol' laptop for a change, and enjoy the bed weather in my actual bed (haha) instead of speeding things up or rely on mobile blogging on my way to events! In short, hibernate-mode-on na naman, at nakisabay pa ang cold weather! :)
Anyway, although tiring and ubos-oras, it's nice to look back to the past 2 weeks of multi-happenings (National Events Day? Hindi na, more of National Events Year!). I realized I had a series of food trips with my blog-barkada---and ang pinaka nangunguna dito? With Paul and Sarah!
The last time I ate in New World was with these 2 din, when we tried the New World Makati Hotel's Cafe 1228. It's great to be back, and this time, try the 2nd floor food offerings of this fine hotel--Signature Set menus featuring authentic Chinese cuisine takes center-stage naman for this dinner in JASMINE.
Seasonings are our Chinese foods' best friends:
Always great to start a (heavy!) Chinese meal with their hot house tea:
JASMINE presents diners with four Signature Sets to choose from. Each set menu features a signature Jasmine dish such as XO Prawn with Sotanghon in Claypot, Steamed Cod Fish with Garlic, Beef Short Ribs with Black Pepper Sauce, among other favorite dishes.
What we had:

Dim sum lovers are in for a mid-day treat as Jasmine features UNLIMITED servings of freshly prepared dim sum. Have a fill of sweet and savory steamed buns, succulent dumplings, crispy spring rolls, and baked delights, plus a choice of tea or soda for Php695+ only per person!
On the weekend, diners can opt to indulge and match the dimsum feast with a glass of sparkling wine for a total of Php950+ per person.
All set menus are designed and prepared by Chef Wong Kam On and his team of seasoned chefs:
Great laughs with bloggers from the lifestyle and entertainment circle:
Also, Paul won the raffle! :) Pakaswerte nga naman!
One of the listed Philippines' Best Restaurants for 2013, go for JASMINE to satisfy your Chinese food cravings. Private rooms are also available for events, meetings, and parties. Authentic Cantonese cuisine, priced right, and with the best ambiance, this experience will definitely not be my last! As a vegetarian, next time I'd love to try their broccoli and mushroom dishes.
