My Birthday Dinner at Cru Steakhouse, Marriott Manila

Last week, I celebrated my birthday at Marriott Manila's fine dining restaurant, Cru Steakhouse.  Although I have been to Marriott Manila many times, it is actually my first time to dine at Cru.  I have to admit, I was excited about this birthday dinner with Mickey.  As a couple, this is one of our firsts together and I have to thank our gracious hosts, Marriott Manila and Director for Marketing Communications, Michelle Garcia, for making my birthday truly memorable.

As we walked inside Cru for the first time, we noticed the plush interiors, warm lighting and the relaxed dining atmosphere.  It is perfect for a romantic date or for life celebrations with your loved ones.  From the dining area, you can catch a glimpse of Cru's chefs creating your perfect meal.  They really put their heart and creativity in their work, as each plate that reached our table was both flavorful and was presented beautifully.

On the right side of the restaurant are seating for bigger groups and also an impressive selection of wine is displayed just in case you'd like to order a bottle for the night.

It was also a few days short of Christmas when we visited Cru, and they had decorated the bar and the tables with simple elegance and tied with the grand Christmas tree they had at the lobby.  It was enough to keep you in a festive Christmas mood as well.

Turning a year older today and I am grateful for the blessings that God has given us in our lives.  I am not even talking about material things, for me what is important is the constant presence of love, happiness, good health and God in our lives is enough.

Dining at Cru, was truly an unforgettable experience.  The best ingredients assembled on our plates definitely created noticeably fresh and flavorful dishes, the steak was made just as we wanted it, well done, but still tender and juicy.  The desserts were perfectly made to be not too sweet, but just right.  Great food plus excellent service makes this place worth every penny.
