Stag Dinner at 22 Prime

22 Prime was chosen as the venue for Trance's stag dinner since our groom to be is a certified steak lover.

We always order bone marrow when it's on the menu and tonight was no exception.

Too bad it wasn't any good as it was dried up and salty. No wonder they covered it with lots of garnish.

I ordered the Surf and Turf Special.  For 1,950++ I had:

Everything was prepared properly but the steak was nothing to write home about. I felt that I could have eaten a jucier steak, in the comforts of home, grilling a slab of meat from Santis. 

I was not alone in my view as friends were also not impressed:

To 22 Prime's credit, we all had a good time celebrating Trance's last few days as a bachelor because of the good service and intimacy the establishment offered. The food, however, was a different story altogether.

22 Prime is located at  22/F Discovery Suites 25 ADB Avenue Mandaluyong City. For more information, call 7198888 or click here
