Al Freso Dining at The Sunset Lounge of Pan Pacific Hotel Manila

Would you believe that here in the heart of Manila, there's a place where you can chill and just enjoy the summer breeze? Yes, I'm not kidding. It may not be obvious to spot it (since it's inside a hotel), but you'll find it along Adriatico Street of Malate, specifically in the Sunset Lounge of Pan Pacific Hotel.

Now, if you would take a look at these photos, you'll understand why I felt so light and relaxed when I was sampling their dishes. The ambiance is so different that you'll doubt if things are true.

Yes, I am exaggerating but it was just magical how Sunset Lounge was able to detach itself from the image of busy and chaotic street of Manila. It's like finding gold in a sea of copper. (I can't think of a better analogy, but you get the point.)

Even though the view is already great during pre-sunset, things turn out even better when the sun eventually sets, as the view gets dreamy, the air turns chilly and the ambiance becomes romantic.

Unique and intriguing, this Baby Back Ribs pizza was innovative with its authentic rib meat bits, which is also where the sweetness was borrowed. More than the intriguing flavors, it was the concept that made me like this dish so much.

Reuben Quesadillas || P350
Lightly toasted tortilla, green lettuce, sour cream and melted cheese

The buffalo wings of Sunset Lounge was rightly spicy featuring a more viscous sauce.

On the other hand, the chicken was notably good because of its clean-tasting batter (i.e. does not have a greasy taste and feel). It was crispy on the outside and definitely traditionally tasty in the inside.

Pork Sisig Tacos || P350
Pork mask, tacos, lettuce, tomato and onion and cheese

The Pork Sisig Tacos - creative and unique!
Innovative and creative, the Sisig Taco was something I found amusing because it was the first time I saw and tasted something that incorporated sisig in a taco. I enjoyed this dish for its concept as well as the refreshing taste!

Overall, I was able to really appreciate Sunset Lounge. The dishes were interesting especially the two innovative ones. However, more than the food, it was the ambiance that I found highly pleasurable. This was sufficient enough to make this experience worthwhile!
