Diamond Hotel's The Lobby Lounge Revisited

I've posted about my experience in Diamond Hotel's The Lobby Lounge before, and this time I brought D with me for him to give his seal of approval.

I wanted him to try Diamond Hotel's famous Truffle Fries (P200) which I first discovered at The Cake Club in Fort.


What I love about their Truffle Fries is that they remain crispy all throughout. The smell of truffle is there after every bite and the only thing I hate about it is the carbs, calories and extra pounds I get from finishing a whole order. I honestly am not a fan of fries but I think I'll make truffle fries an exception. 

Spinach and Ricotta Ravioli (P455)


I missed to try this during my first visit so I decided to order one for us. The ravioli were stuffed with spinach and ricotta cheese which tasted very light yet filling. I love that they included more spinach on the side and chopped walnuts for added texture. 

Zucchini Cream (P250)


I remember how I enjoyed Lobby Lounge's Zucchini Cream with the Parmesan Cheese Crisp on top, so I ordered one for D. He said it was good but I noticed that it was different from the one I had before. This bowl looked pale in color and the cheese was not crispy enough either.

Lamb Burger (P510)


The moment D was waiting for.. Diamond Hotel's Lamb Burger- Morrocan spiced lamb patty, feta, Parmesan cheese and harissa yogurt with onions, tomatoes and lettuce with a side of crispy fries. 

The lamb patty was so thick and juicy, D devoured it in minutes. Looks like he really enjoyed this one.. he mentioned how good it was several times. 

For dessert, I ordered for Ispahan (P280)- a macaron-based dessert with lychee, raspberries, cream and rose essence. 


Since we still got room for more dessert, we also had some Genmaicha and Super Moist Chocolate Cake Ice Cream (P180/2 scoops) 


We both liked the Genmaicha with its distinct roasted brown rice flavor. The Super Moist Chocolate Cake on the other hand has this bitter-sweet taste with some chocolate cake bits in it.

Diamond Hotel's Lobby Lounge Menu:




Overall, D enjoyed the Lobby Lounge so much especially their Lamb Burger. Their menu may not be that extensive but that just shows how they perfect each dish to make it special.
