33rd Floor 100 Revolving Restaurant, Eastwood drive corner C-5 , Quezon City-Philippines
I got an invitation from Wazzup Pilipinas to visit on the newly opened restaurant in the part of Quezon City. It came to a surprise that the the Miss Earth 2013 candidates were also invited to grace this momentous occasion.
The revolving restaurant concept is not new in the Philippines, the country had its first revolving restaurant in Quiapo district , Manila way back in the 1970’s .The building, once the Manila Royal Hotel, now occupied by SM clearance sale outlet or SM Carriedo branch . The building can be viewed every-time we had a special tour inside the Metropolitan theater .
magnificent skyline of Metro Manila and surrounding cities
There is another one in Cebu , But the largest up to date is the 101 revolving restaurant.

It was having an opportunity to meet with 29 Miss Earth 2013 lovely candidates out of 88 total candidates and experience the superb signature and customized dishes of Chef Jessie, a celebrated chef , connoisseur and and author of some books.
Concept of the Restaurant:
Chef Jessie 100 Revolving Restaurant is owned by the Que Family of MDC (Mercury Drug Corporation) located at the 33rd floor of the company owned (MDC 100) building, the first high-rise venture of MDC.
Ms. Tess Laurente, the PR Manager and Chef Jessie herself when we had a chance to interview them talked about the story behind the name of MDC 100. The 100 is a very special number for the Que Family, They started a business with 100 pesos, so it symbolizes the humble beginning of the company, very inspiring!

It is the only and biggest revolving restaurant in the country today. The couple were inspired by the other revolving restaurants whenever they traveled abroad.

You dine and revolves and experience the beautiful view of the city. Revolving will take around 1 to 1/2 hour. You can experience the different facet of Metro Manila skyline, from lush green golf courses, posh subdivision , buildings, major thoroughfare , business district and mountains from nearby Sierra Mountain and Rizal province.
The restaurant can accommodate between 250 to 300 people at any given time . The restrooms are clean and the simple flower arrangement adds charm to the place.
You are lucky you will see different kinds of bird species and a beautiful sunset between 4-5 PM. The place is an Idyllic venue for weddings, marriage proposals, Valentine Dates, New Year celebration for a safer and better view of fireworks, family gatherings, reunions and for all occasions.
There are some celebrity guests at the restaurant which includes politicians, artists and beauty queens
Note: I think is is one of the BEST restaurant in Metro Manila. The restaurant can rival some of the first class hotels and restaurants . Value for money , ambiance, relaxation and magnificent view of the skyline. There is a parking space at the basement of the building.
The restaurant operates from 11am up to 11:00pm and they have some extensions.
