It’s Filipino Fiesta Every Sunday at S Kitchen
Sundays are all about families and friends getting together to share meals and catch up. What better way to spend the end of a busy week but to indulge in delectable old-time Filipino favourites? Head to Sheraton Manila’s S Kitchen, which features an extravagant Sunday Filipino fiesta-themed buffet crafted by the hotel’s culinary team helmed by the Executive Chef Kiko Santiago.
While the buffet offers a bountiful spread of international selections, the spotlight is on the Filipino station, which has almost everything Filipino you could dream of. Carnivores will definitely take pleasure in the lechon painstakingly cooked over wood fire for hours. Alongside this world-famous porcine dish are Cebuchon (pork belly infused with fragrant spices), liempo (grilled pork belly), isaw (a popular street food), chicken inasal wrapped in bacon, and seafood options such as tuna panga (jaw) and pinapautok na bangus(stuffed milkfish).
Other fiesta staples such as bagnet, chicharon, crispy tadyang (ribs), bihon longganisa, miki batchoy, kare-kare with homemade bagoong and fresh lumpia with dinakdakan or inasal filling, prepared tableside are also showcased for guests to indulge in. Of course, the Filipino dining table is never complete with the well-loved carb: rice. Take your pick from bagoong rice, paella Valenciana, or the simplest, piping hot steamed variant.
“Sunday brunch has become popular here in Manila, so we created a concept that invites people to not just eat but dine like there is a celebration. It’s that overall authentic experience of local culture through food,” says Santiago. The grand finale is a sinful spread of Filipino delicacies that includes biko sa latik (rice with caramelized coconut cream topping), banana-langka turon, ube maja with cheese, and the billowy palitaw (glutinous rice cake).
S Kitchen’s Filipino Fiesta brunch runs every Sunday, from 12:00 noon to 3:00 pm. For reservations, call 902 1800 or catch more updates on @sheratonmanila in Facebook Instagram and Twitter.
