Chef Rafael Jardeleza, Jr., or Chef Tibong, is a staunch advocate of heritage cuisine, creates a delectable feast of Western Visayas dishes at the famed Cafe Ilang Ilang at The Manila Hotel. This is for the whole month of August 2023, and available for lunch and dinner.
Western Visayas is home to the freshest catch of marine delicacies so one can expect mouthwatering seafood dishes that will surely whet one's appetite. Of course, Chef Tibong also highlights heirloom dishes and los postres.
Chicken Galantina. I heard that this is from Chef Tibong's secretly guarded family recipe that is handed down from generation to generation. And now I know why! Almost creamy in its smoothness, and packed with savory flavors, this is perfect with a glass of white wine.
