Gastronomia de Esapaňa at Marriott Hotel Manila

Food. Wine. Passion. Rediscover these while staying at the Marriott Hotel Manila.

Marriot Hotel Manila brings you authentic Spanish cuisine whipped up by the young and handsome guest Chef from Valladolid, Victor Burgos.

Spanish cuisine is not really new to us, Filipinos, whose cuisine is laced with Spanish dishes. After all, we have danced the flamenco, did the soulful singing while playing the guitar, and the Spaniards built majestic churches, which  made our country a bastion of the Catholic faith? And I loved and even wanted to read Don Quijote in its Spanish version.

So, you know what I’m talking about. Head for Marriott Hotel and get a chance to taste the famous Ibérico ham, relish the season’s first olive oils in Andalusia, and sample what is served in the bustling food markets of Catalonia. Enjoy also the tapas like the locals do, sip and savor the wines at Rioja and learn about the gastronomic society in the Basque.

Food: Dinner Buffet at Marriott Café

For a wide array of choices, every corner of Marriott Café’s dinner buffets shout muy delicioso! Various cold cuts like chorizo, salchichon, lomo, Iberico ham, and Serrano ham are served with fresh tomato bread. Different cheeses such as manchego, cabrales, tetilla, and mahon are best paired walnut bread and membrillo. What more? Enjoy spoonfuls of hot and cold soups like the gazpacho, salmorejo, purrusalda, lentils with chorizo, and lamb stew. Salad lovers are also in for a treat as the salad bar boasts of different flavors and textures for the discerning palate. Escalivada and Chicken (roasted vegetables with chicken and walnuts), Mejillones en Escabeche (marinated mussels with onion, Spanish paprika, and white wine), Ensaladilla Rusa (Russian Salad comprised of potato salad with mayonnaise and garden vegetables), or Melon con Jamon Serrano (melon and Serrano ham). Choose the Champiñones al Ajillo (sautéed champinion with garlic, white wine, and parsley), Ensalada de Remolacha y Esparragos (beetroot salad with green asparagus, lettuce & orange), or Atun encebollado (tuna with onion pickle). There’s also Codorniz Escabechada (marinated quail in vinegar & vegetables) Ensalada de Alubias (white beans salad with vegetables and Serrano ham), Ensalada de Mango y Gambas (prawn and mango salad with yogurt dressing), Queso Manchego con Miel y Guayaba (manchego, guava, and honey), and Salpicon de Marisco (mixed seafood salad, northern-style).

Mini paellas are of course available, along with hot items like the Bacalao Ajoarriero, Mussels Marinara, Pisto Manchego, and Pollo al Ajillo. The carving station on the other hand is filled with more Serrano ham, Iberico ham, lamb shoulder, suckling pig, and turkey.

Before the next day’s siesta, make sure to try the Crema Catalana (caramelized custard cream) and the Arroz con Leche (creamy rice pudding with a touch of canela and lemon). Better yet, feel like a child once more by pouring chocolate on the deep-fried Churros coated with sugar.

More sweets? Have fun with Flan de Huevo (Spanish version of creme caramel) or the Tarta de Santiago (Northern Spain’s almond tart with milk foam).

To mesmerize the special diners, Marriott Café also offers live cooking of the churros, paella, and tapas.

Wine: Wine Dinner at Cru Steakhouse

Cru Steakhouse continues the celebration of Spanish delights on June 13 by pairing succulent meats with impeccable wines. Bodegas Hidalgo de Filipinas brings the finest wines from Spain. Featuring Emina 2005 Ribera del Duero, this wine has dark, fruity flavor that brings cheese and leather into play. The palate is hard and snappy, with acid-based cherry and plum flavors.

Salut definitely goes to the hams and cheeses, especially its selection of tapas: Salmorejo con Berenjenas Fritas (Southern Spain’s cold soup with deep-fried eggplant), Gambas al Ajillo (garlic prawns, olive oil, and parsley), Croquetas de Setas (creamy croquettes with a mix of mushroom), and Pintxos Moruno (marinated lamb skewer with manchego cream sauce).

For the main course, Cru Steakhouse serves Arroz Caldoso de Marisco (moist rice with seafood), Entrecot con Pisto y Crema de Queso Manchego (rib-eye steak with manchego cream sauce and pisto), and Muslo de Pollo con Graten de Patatas y Bacon (chicken leg with potato and bacon gratin).

The Flan de Huevo and Tarta de Santiago are also available for dessert, along with Crema de Yogur y Chocolate Blanco, Fruta de la Passion, y Gengibre (white chocolate, yogurt with passion fruit, and ginger crumble).

Experience Spain’s food, wine, and passion this June at Marriott Hotel Manila’s Gastronomia de Espaňa. Dinner buffet is available daily at Marriott Café (Sun-Thurs P1950 and Fri-Sat P2300).

Ocean’s Harvest at Marriott Hotel Manila

Cooked seafood on ice

Fresh catch of the day

Marriott Hotel Manila is giving its guests a new dining experience: a seafood buffet every Friday and Saturday from 6:0o p.m. to 10:30 p.m. all year-round.

Called Ocean’s Harvest, this seafood buffet offers diners numerous fresh seafood and can even request the chef to have their choice seafood cooked their way. For only P2,300, guests can indulge in a sea of mouthwatering seafood dishes.

Sweet and sour crabs

We ordered first the sweet and sour crabs. The sauce of this dish is divine! It has the right amount of sweetness and sourness that coats well the crab meat and tickle the palate.

 Wizheart orderd this pampano with just the simple soy sauce.

This pampano dish is like a home-made dish made to taste gourmet-like. The fish is so tender and it tastes so good when eaten with the slightly caramelized garlic.

An assorted of seafood

We had a plate of grilled assorted seafood. The squid, the shells were so fresh that when grilled are to die for!

Lobster in garlic and butter sauce

This lobster in garlic and butter sauce is a must-try. The lobster is so tender and juicy and compliments really well with the garlic and butter.

 Seafood lasagna

Marriott Cafe’s seafood lasagna is another must-try. I just love the mixture of seafood and its sauce. Rich and cheesy!

M Cafe’s gelato

What a perfect way to cap the seafood dinner with a gelato. I had a mix of gianauja amara and Palawan walnut. It was just so delicious!

If I were you, I’d go and have your own Ocean’s Harvest experience at Marriott. You can start your dinner with a piping hot soup of shrimp gumbo in lemon grass cooked Tinola-style. Or you can have the steaming hot pot of sinigang in local miso or tamarind alongside talakitok, maya-maya, head prawn local clams. Whatever suits you.

The Ocean Surf Market Style Buffet Menu includes fresh salmon, tuna loin, local tanigue, pompano, talakitok, lapu-lapu, maya-maya, shellfish, jumbo prawns, half shell local scallop, local clams, jumbo squid, suahe shrimps, blue marlin, and local gindara. You can also have your fill of slippers lobsters, local blue sea crab, curacha crab, prawns, mussels, and white shells. All of these you can have cooked your way. Not to mention the friendly and very accommodating chefs at Marriott.

Here we are, happy about our simple grilled fish! 😀

If that isn’t one awesome dining experience, I don’t know what is.
