Our great group dining experience at Flame Restaurant at Discovery Primea Makati

I took a walk along Ayala after a day's work and (as always) I was an hour late for dinner with good friends consisting of some of the best in their respective industries. Thankfully, these people really didn't mind that I missed the stories during my absence. But sure enough, these guys know me better. Just upon arriving, all I hear was "Nines, sit down and drink fast coz we're almost drunk hahaha"

Overlooking the crazy traffic from Edsa and the hustle and bustle from early night Ayala in Makati, we then enjoyed hours of laughter and endless banter at the corner area of Flame Restaurant, which rests 16 floors high above the city; with no one to care and no one to judge us....not even the servers who kept coming back near our table because we kept on asking for wine refills.

Flame Restaurant at Discovery Primea is the ideal dining destination this season, as it continues to offer unique culinary experiences and innovative Asia cuisines to guests. 

Makati, Discovery Primea’s Flame Restaurant offers guests a heightened sense of luxury dining.  Diners’ culinary journey starts as soon as they are greeted with a warm welcome and ushered into the spacious restaurant.  Sleek and stylish interiors featuring a “living” chandelier and an expansive marble-top kitchen lend a touch of charm and elegance, while the floor-to-ceiling windows enhance the atmosphere with panoramic views of Metro Manila’s skyline. 

Flame caters to a variety of experiences such as relaxed solo dining and business lunches to special occasions including romantic dinners and celebrations for groups of varying sizes.  The restaurant is home to two wings—the Ayala and Urdaneta sides, respectively, which may be reserved exclusively for private events.  Whatever the occasion may be, Flame’s versatility makes it the ideal venue for enjoyable get-togethers and events especially for the upcoming holidays. 

Apart from its luxurious and well-appointed spaces, Flame has always been a stage for the hotel’s chefs to innovate.  Led by Discovery Primea’s Executive Chef, Luis Chikiamco, Flame’s latest exciting chapter sees the move from European cuisine to a more playful yet sophisticated modern Asian menu.  Moving away from his French culinary pedigree, Chef Luis draws from his childhood memories and creature comforts to create flavors that evoke wonder or nostalgia, and sometimes, both. 
Flame’s new lunch and dinner menus feature the freshest ingredients translated into the most imaginative creations.  For starters, the Tuna Yukhoe Tacos—Chef Luis’ version of the Korean specialty with fresh chunks of tuna cured in gochugang and soy-honey vinaigrette stuffed in homemade taco shells and topped with Asian slaw, are a welcome treat.  Or, diners may tuck into Josper Grilled U.S. Chicken Wings with togarashi waffles, charred leeks, garlic chips, spring onions, and teriyaki sauce. 
For the main course, guests looking to explore the diverse and modern Asian culinary landscape may choose from the Steamed Chicken and Lobster X.O. with shiitake, Chinese sausage, served with sticky soy rice and bean curd skin; Crispy Pork Belly with eggplant, ground pork, tofu, tomatoes, and hot bean paste; or the Pan-Seared Black Bass with spinach, water chestnuts, candied walnuts, coconut masala, and Asian gremolata.  Incorporated in Flame’s menu are bestselling dishes diners have come to love, such as the iconic Take-out Lobster Fried Rice.  This dish is a feast, featuring homemade cured Chinese sausage with a whole grilled lobster and perfectly cooked egg.   

To end each meal on a delightful note, Flame presents a selection of desserts, with the Yema Cake taking the spotlight.  Presented in a modern and whimsical fashion, this treat combines the flavorful elements of condensada cremeux, quezo de bola, and old-fashioned homemade vanilla ice cream. 

A highlight for this quarter is the exquisite five-course dinner tasting menu which offers guests a unique set of dishes to enjoy. Offered at PHP2,400++ per person, the dinner tasting menu features Asian creations such as Marlin Ceviche, Crispy Crab Claws, and Spiced Chocolate Tart.  Guests may sample this exquisite treat from October until December 2018.  Rate is subject to applicable taxes and service charge. 

Flame is open from for lunch and for dinner from Mondays to Saturdays.  For inquiries and reservations, please call +632 955 8888. Flame is located at the 16th floor of Discovery Primea.  For more information on upcoming activities, visit discoveryprimea.com or follow Discovery Primea on Facebook and Instagram.
