Ein Prosit to the 79th Oktoberfest at Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila

All roads lead to Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila on October 6-7, 2017 for the much-awaited 79th Oktoberfest. It also happens to be the 8th year that the German Club of Manila will celebrate Oktoberfest at the hotel. Oktoberfest pays tribute to the centuries-old Bavarian customs and is the most authentic German beer festival in the country.



Sofitel Manila's Harbor Garden Tent will be transformed into a traditional biergarten and expect the hotel's master chefs to prepare sumptuous Bavarian feasts that features roasted pork knuckles, roasted calf, laugen rolls, grilled German sausages, mouthwatering pastries, and unlimited ice-cold San Miguel beer.


To liven up the festivities, The Bavarian Sound Express will fly in straight from Germany to entertain guests with lively Oktoberfest music and international hits. Of course, Oktoberfest is never complete without the annual beer drinking contest, and raffle draw with a grand prize that will take the winner to any destination of choice in Germany. And for a truly authentic Bavarian celebration, men will don lederhosen, while women will wear dirndls. These are traditional Bavarian clothes which adds color (literally) to the festivities.


Of course, to make most of the evening's Oktoberfest festivities, guests may book a weekend getaway at Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila as a relaxing treat after the festivities. Room rates start at Php 6,000nett per night.

Oktoberfest 2017 souvenirs are also available for purchase.

  1. Whenever I hear or read Oktoberfest, naiisip ko na agad traffic. I remember when my husband went home from his business trip, inabot na siya ng madaling araw dahil sa traffic kasi may Oktoberfest event. Anyway, mukhang good deal na yung 6k nett ng Sofitel for weekend getaway.

Ilustrado Restaurant Anniversary Degustation

Jose Rizal and the Spanish era are synonymous with the word Ilustrado but for me, what comes to mind is this restaurant in Intramuros, Manila. Coincidentally though, Intramuros was once called the Walled City and is rich in history and glamor of the bygone days when Spain ruled the country. Visiting Intramuros is like a history lesson itself and dining at Ilustrado is the cherry on top.

As Ilustrado Restaurant celebrates its 29th anniversary this October, it brings back the specially curated 8-course Ilustrado Degustation by Chef Bernice Pimentel.

"This year, 2019 marks the third year that we have been doing an anniversary degustation and this year, I am not only bringing forth our culinary heritage to the present but also incorporating much more local ingredients," says Chef Bernice.

Fat Fook Manila

Fat Fook Manila, the restaurant that's been making foodies excited with its Taiwanese noms opened its latest branch at The Globe Tower in BGC. The restaurant which has a seating capacity of about 40, also has a dedicated take-out counter should you have cravings for yummy Taiwanese snacks.

There's a lot of interesting noms from the menu but here are my favorites:

Taiwanese Sausage on sticks. I've been hearing about this amazing sausages from my friends who has been to Taiwan and its on the must-try list. And thanks to Fat Fook Manila, I don't have to fly to Taiwan to enjoy these sausages. It tastes sweet but the meat is firm and not as oily as our local sausage (longganisa). The garlic inserted on the sausages looks weird but it adds some flavor to it. I'm guessing that this sausages are best paired with a bottle of beer. ;)


Holiday Specials at Ilustrado

Filipinos pride themselves when it comes to holiday season get-togethers with family, friends, colleagues, etc. They even try to outdo each other when it comes to discovering new goodies and delicious food finds.

And because Ilustrado Restaurant knows that delicious food is a special highlight of any get-together, it has a whole array of mouthwatering choices for everyone.
