Sustainable Seafood Month at Marriott Manila

In line with its commitment to serve only the best quality and sustainable kind when it comes to seafood, Marriott Manila once again joined the nationwide Sustainable Seafood awareness campaign this March.

"We feel responsible of providing not just high-quality dishes but also sourced responsibly that results to more years of great food and satisfied seafood awareness cravings," says Marriott Executive Chef Meik Brammer.

Every Wednesdays, Marriott Cafe is serving premium quality black tiger prawns on their buffet spread. Selva Shrimps has a "Best Choice" rating for sustainability because these are naturally raised in mangrove forests, and doesn't have any harmful feeds used on them. It is a healthy shrimp that has a firm texture, succulent taste and vibrant color.


And to make the meal more interesting, Chef Meik created sumptuous Selva Shrimp dishes with a touch of Asian flair such as the Grilled Shrimps marinated in Indonesian Sambal, and for a more local touch- the Manila-style Sisig.

Of course, this is just a part of Marriott Cafe's international cuisine offerings. Lunch buffet is priced at P1,950 and dinner at P2,150.

Aside from Marriott Cafe, expect appetizing Selva Shrimp bar chows at the Greatroom. Perfect for snacks, cocktails, or simply to pass away time. Menu includes Boiled Shrimps with sausages and potatoes on the side, Baked Shrimps with chips and dips, Okoy or shrimp fritters, and Shrimp Kapao in a bun. That last one sounds interestingly delicious, right?

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. ;)
