I had my introduction to authentic French cuisine when I traveled to Paris last September for a business trip. No matter where I ate, everything was just so delicious. Back here in Manila, there are only very few restaurants that serves authentic French cuisine in the same quality as I remember it in Paris. One of which is The Nostalgia Dining Lounge at the Oakwood Premier Manila, in Ortigas Center.
This March, Oakwood Premier Manila's resident French Executive Chef Jérôme Cartailler will be serving an extensive selection of French Classics in a special Nostalgic Culinary Week menu. However, this celebration of French gastronomy will only be available until March 31, 2016. Fortunately, we were invited by the Nostalgia Dining Lounge last week to try some of the French dishes on the menu.

Let me end this article by quoting a man I saw in a French documentary about French cuisine. He said, une journée sans bien manger est une journée perdue, which means "a day without good food is a day wasted." So don't let your day come to waste by trying the French Classics at The Nostalgia Dining Lounge. Call +63 (02) 637-7888 local 8604 and reserve your table now.
