When it comes to hotel buffets, THE MANILA HOTEL'S CAFE ILANG ILANG delivers. Complete yet concise. That is how CAFE ILANG ILANG shows itself. Keeping up with tradition, MANILA HOTEL invited The Diva.
Starting THURSDAY, August 25 up to September 16, 2016, the Manila Hotel would be celebrating the FILIPINO FOOD FESTIVAL.
For this particular event, different Filipino dishes were served along with the usual parts of the buffet.
Diners would enjoy the Chef's take on seafood. Crabs were drowned in a rich sauce while shrimps had crab fat on top of them.
Surprisingly, the sisig that Chef Dedet served is not your ordinary usual dish. This one had different flavor profiles. It isn't too spicy and must be eaten with rice.
One thing that Chef Dedet is known for would be her lechons. These babies are incredibly good and deadly. During the preview, she served one with truffle rice coming out from the belly of the pig.
Aside from all the Filipino food, patrons could also expect the seafood section to spruce up their appetites.
There are tender cuts of meat and grilling stations to attend to their carnivore needs.
For dessert, DEDET prepared her famous SUMAN with different sweet toppings liks YEMA and CHOCHNUT and even UBE.
More than Filipino selections, Cafe Ilang Ilang also offers cakes, chocolate, macarons, and sugar free ice home made ice cream.
