Marriot Cafe: Flavors of Asia

10:27:00 PM



What a way to start the month... I attended this Bloggers' Night for Flavors of Asia last Monday in Marriott Manila and got the chance to meet the chefs behind this oriental celebration happening for a month, (from L to R) JW Marriott Jakarta’s Dadang Wahyudi, Renaissance Kuala Lumpur’s Ruhizad Muri, JW Marriott Bangkok Thanatorn Krobsuay and Renaissance Riverside Saigon Phan Tien Hoa ~




We stayed at The Den for about an hour or so and enjoyed these refreshing Flavors of Asia beverages:


From L to R: Apolkat Shake (Avocado & Chocolate) - Indonesia
Teh Tarik (Black Tea & Condensed Milk) - Malaysia
Thai Lemongrass - Thailand
Limade (Fresh Lime Juice) - Vietnam

Right before Dinnertime, the chefs introduced themselves and presented their signature dishes that made us ready for Marriott Cafe.

Beef Rendang 

Som Tum (Green Papaya Salad)

Cha Gio (Fried Spring Roll)

Assorted Satay

All four chefs will also conduct a special cooking class for only P1, 500 net inclusive of a hearty lunch: July 9, Thai; July 16, Malaysian, July 23 Vietnamese; and July 30, Indonesian. If you wish to experience this treat that’s injected with fun and information, consider enjoying Asian cuisine by learning to cook it yourself!

Marriott Hotel Lobby ^ 

Let me try to walk you through of what I have seen and experienced that night...

These will make you say, you are ready for another luxurious and/or sumptuous meal...





It was so hard to decide what to get first but the Vietnamese Noodles Soup counter caught my attention because of the weather recently...



I personally love the salad station...


Look! There's Chef Ruhizad Muri beside the Chinese Station ^



Yummy but HOTTT ;) Good thing the servers were attentive enough to see what you need and got (2) Apolkat Shake in less than a minute!

My all-time favorite: Buttered Shrimps&Crabs - you can ask any of the chef to this for you and you can instruct them should you have any other cooking style in mind. 

Buffet is never complete without Tempura! If you want Ginger Raddish for your sauce, they give it by request :) 

I love buffet but I don't normally get the urge to eat a lot. I just love and enjoy seeing food and how people (especially chefs) prepare what you mostly crave that can certainly make your fine dining experience a remarkable one. I personally recommend Marriott Cafe - the place and the wide variety of food is just perfect whether you have something to celebrate with your family, friends, colleagues, etc. 

Oh well, at least, I still managed to get sweets...

Gelato for only P140: Gianduja Amara & Tiramisu

Tiramisu & Blueberry Cheesecake on the background ;)




Dear Vanna/Yani, Thank you so much for having me and for this ^ ;) 


Hope I can book a room before the year ends. ;)
