Elmer Dado with Gruppo Tribale and all the DJs killed it! Everyone felt the vibe as laser fountains webbed the entire dance floor to the beat of live percussion plus techno/trance music filled ICON bar last September 4, 2011. ICON has 9 VIP rooms and 3 bars plus the tables all over the dance floor. The crowd arrived late evening and the party just started around 2am. Woohooo!!!
Beer is my usual drink when I go out with friends; nevertheless, I enjoyed the Classic Mojito (Php 230) that was served. The mint, lime juice, and rum mixture was refreshing. What I didn’t like about mojito is straining all the mint leaves while drinking. It’s either you swallow it or get it stuck between your teeth.
We liked the Lychee Martini (Php 230) with a hint of coconut. I was delighted with the sweet scent and tropical flavor.
We were served a tall serving of Margarita (Php 230). It would’ve been great if the consistency is slushy rather than watery. Maybe the ice melted faster making the taste a bit bland, lacking the kick of tequila.
We had ICON Supreme pizza (Php 720) which I love. The pizza was served warm, just about the right temperature to sink my teeth in. It was topped with mushroom, beef bits, ham, pepperoni, bell pepper, onion, mozzarella cheese and dashed with herbs. It was so flavorful!!! The smoky taste of mushroom, the sweet caramelized flavor of onion, combined with the meaty flavor just hit the spot. No doubt, this pizza deserves to be named ICON Supreme. Definitely a must try.
If you like something hotttt and spicy then this appetizer will satisfy your taste buds- Nachos El Grande (Php 410). It’s a bed of nacho chips loaded with chili meat sauce and melted cheese topped with another layer of nacho chips drizzled with sour cream to finish it off. I like the soggy part where all the meat sauce and cheese combine. Yeah! The spiciness of the meat sauce that heats up my mouth followed by the mint-lime taste of mojito is just perfect! I could finish this entire thing! Uhm… if I wasn’t in a bar. Heheheh…
Feast your eyes with the laser lights, fill your soul with energy with the music, fill your tummy with the great food and drinks ICON has to offer. Experience all these only at ICON.
