Tomahawk Chop at 22 Prime, Discovery Suites OrtigasI was among those who witnessed how Chef David Pardo de Ayala transformed these huge, thick, and raw 1 kg 6-Star Tenderplus Australian beef into the most delectable steak dish ever. Its massive size actually reminded me of a caveman’s club.

Chef David Pardo de Ayala, Discovery Hotels Corporate ChefThe affable Chef David (pronounced with a short “a”) gamely answered our questions and posed for photos. He stressed the importance of making sure that the meat is at room temperature before cooking it. “Nothing will ruin a steak more than taking it directly from the chiller to the grill,” Chef David explains.

Tomahawk Chop sharing portion with Caesar Salad and Steamed Vegetables at 22 Prime, Discovery Suites OrtigasWe sere soon served individual portions of the Tomahawk Chop accompanied by a bowl of Caesar Salad “22 Prime” and grilled baby vegetables. Our steaks were already sliced for us, so all we had to do was dig in. 😀

The thin layer of fat on the sides served to heighten the melt-in-your-mouth goodness of each slice. The naturally sweet grilled baby vegetables complemented the steak perfectly. We each had a glass of Verse 1 Cabernet Sauvignon to go with our steak too. 😀

From June 1-15, 2010, 22 Prime will offer its Australian Tomahawk Chop & “Verse 1” Specialty Menu for P4,800. This includes a 1kg 6-Star Tenderplus Australian Beef Rib Eye served to share with a Casserole of Baby Vegetables, a bowl of Caesar Salad “22 Prime”, and a bottle of Verse 1 Cabernet Sauvignon. This special menu can be shared by about 4 hungry people, but portioning is really up to the guest’s discretion.
