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.

Dine at Royal Saigon

Royal Saigon Restaurant is one of the most popular tourist choice in Ho Chi Minh City. Maybe it is also because it is located at Bui Vien, which is the tourist hub in HCMC. And it was actually my friend who wanted to eat at Royal Saigon, I just happily tagged along.



Another Day in Paradise Dynasty

Paradise Dynasty has been a family favorite since it opened its doors at S Maison Conrad in Pasay City. Although the location is far from us, the restaurant was always the first one that comes to mind when we go malling in the area. Now, it has opened branches in Podium Mall and SM Aura Premiere.
