Flavors of Asia at Marriott Manila



A lot of people will agree that one of the best ways to experience Asia is through its food—historic, flavorful, and vast. Especially for the Southeast Asian region  that boasts a multi-cultural and hard-hitting influence with the way we enjoy  cooking and eating, it’s no wonder why dishes that hail from these regions are  considered a feast for the senses.
 
To  pay tribute to this revered cuisine of the world; Marriott Manila brings home  four of the Asia ’s most famous cuisines.  From Thailand , Malaysia , Indonesia and Vietnam , Marriott Cafe tantalizes  everyone with a masterpiece through a month-long celebration of Oriental  flavors that’s uniquely Marriott.
 
What  else could be more exciting other than a larger than life encounter with  Renaissance Kuala Lumpur’s Ruhizad Muri, JW Marriott Jakarta’s Dadang Wahyudi,  Renaissance Riverside Saigon Phan Tien Hoa, and JW Marriott Bangkok Thanatorn  Krobsuay. Boasting with culinary career track that is dynamically diverse,  expect only authentic and a palate tickling adventure anyone could get.
 
For  only P2, 300 net from Sunday to Thursday and P2, 500 net for Friday and  Saturday, enjoy a charming Asian dinner that assures an enjoyable age-old  tradition of bonding through a delicious mix of aromatic, spicy, rich, sweet,  and hot Flavors of Asia.
 
Back  by popular demand, Thai food definitely deserves all the hype for its four  fundamental tastes that we Filipinos love: sweet, sour, salty, and bitter.  Chef Thanatorn Krobsuay who trail blazed the first two consecutive most-talked  about Thai Food Fest at Marriott Café, there’s no denying that it’s one of the  cuisines we regularly crave for. This year, chef Thanathorn makes the  selections more lavish and worth discovering with his new menu line up such  as: deep fried sea bass with chili sauce, sautéed squid with pineapple and  cucumber, beef balls cooked with typical Malay sauce, and braised beef spiced  with turmeric and coconut.
 
More  than its legendary nasi lemak, chef  Ruhizad Muri gives foodies a taste of Malaysia ’s noteworthy nyonya cuisine.  A signature Penang-type of cooking  that blends spices from roots (galangal, turmeric, and ginger); leaves  (pandan, lime, and laksa); fruit (lemon, tamarind, and green mangoes);  together with other ingredients like shrimp paste and chilies.  Imbibed from Thai cooking style, chef  Ruhizad puts an interesting twist with the time-honored wok dishes of  Malaysia . This section invites  everyone as well to get creative with blue crab, shrimps,dilis fish, beef tenderloin, chicken,  clams, barbeque chicken, steamed fish, assorted vegetables peppered with  Malaysian spices.
 
Another  Southeast Asian cuisine that deserves to be in the limelight is Indonesian.  Popular for their satay which shows Asians’ love affair for grilled meats,  chef Dadang Wahyudi makes skewers tastier and more appetizing with these  selections: chicken, shrimps, calamari, beef, goat, pork and fish in assorted  marinations! Another must-try is the bebek betutu klung klung, an  all-spiced up Balinese dish enhanced by a host of pungent roots, herbs, and  seasoning. Both locals and visitors are just so psyched about this heavenly  roasted duck recipe that it’s considered a dish specially reserved for big  banquets and ceremonies.
 
A  native of Ho Chi Minh, chef Phan Thien Hoa presents well-rounded Vietnamese  dishes notable for its minimal use of oil, bountiful use of herbs and  vegetables-- which shouldn’t make one wonder why it ranks as one of the  healthiest foods in the world! Most travelers would agree that a Vietnam trip is never complete  without tasting a steamy and flavorful bowl of pho. Considered the heart and soul of  Vietnamese cuisine, it features a delicious play on broth, rice noodles, meat,  herbs and spices. Another delicacy that Vietnam is famous for is the  Vietnamese spring rolls—soft rice wrappers filled with choicest meats and  vegetables such as shrimps, tofu, chicken, and beef. Enjoy it fresh and slow  at this special section which will make you feel the charming street-food  style eating in Vietnam .
 
And  with the Philippines long coast line, it’s a  crime to miss out our very owns seafood choices. Your meal will never be  complete without the tiger prawns, steamed lobster on ice, marinated marina  clam and curacha crab which are all  highly regarded for its freshness, standout taste and quality. So make sure  this cold section is part of your eating plan.
 
While  the West is abundant with milk for most of their dessert recipes, Southeast  Asians on the other hand capitalize on the creamy goodness of coconut milk,  whether it’s for glutinous rice or fruits. A mix of sweet, savory, hot and  cold, these should be a flavorful last hurrah for a really good meal: pandan  crepes rolled with caramelize coconut, stewed green bean with palm sugar,  banana in sweet coconut, pandan leave jelly plus other famous delicacies that  will surely strike anyone’s fancy.
 
Much more, we believe  that food and travel are a perfect way to go if someone wants to have an  in-depth experience of a local destination. With this in mind, our Marriott  properties in  Thailand,  Malaysia ,  Indonesia and Vietnam ,are giving away  three days and two nights gift certificates to four lucky diners of Flavors of  Asia—all you need to fully enjoy a one hundred percent Asian  experience!
 
Bringing  an authentic taste of local life and hospitality, our 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.
