Chef Owner Matthew Crabbe flew in to Manila to introduce Ruby Jack’s new dishes made of choice ingredients sourced from the Philippines and around the world.
“Ruby Jack’s is originally a popular steakhouse in Japan and for more than 2 years of operations in Manila, we are delighted that diners at the luxury integrated resort City of Dreams get to experience Ruby Jack’s highest quality steaks, meats and seafood; and its impeccable service. We further strive to excite the palate of diners with the timely introduction of innovative new dishes that complement our highly-sought-after main courses,” Chef Crabbe said.
“In every dish, Ruby Jack’s culinary team tries to bring out the true and natural flavor profile of each ingredient and use it in harmony or in contrast to the flavors of the other ingredients. We add new dimensions of flavors to the way guests enjoy their steaks. In our starters and side dishes, you can find fresh ingredients such as the sweetest tomatoes and distinctive natural Umami taste of shio konbu from Japan; coconut rum from Africa; truffle and olive oil from Italy; local citrus and nuts; and house-made ricotta cheese,” he expounded.
Some of Ruby Jack’s new starters are coconut flamed foie gras with caramelized pineapple and cashews, black Angus carpaccio with whipped home-made ricotta and sugar tomatoes, sizzling scallops with whipped shio konbu butter and burnt dalandan. The new sidings on the menu include mashed potato garlic chips, oregano brushed and torched peppers and cauliflower gratin with truffle scent. Choice of sidings is served with any of the premium char-grilled steaks, meats and seafood.
