Looking for fine and diverse Filipino food? You might not know it, but the answer is yes. 😉 From May 19 to 29, 2016, the Diamond Hotel’s Corniche restaurant commemorates the festivals of May by serving Filipino cuisine for both lunch and dinner buffet-style. With renowned Filipina chefs and advocates of Philippine cuisine, Chef Myrna Segismundo and Chef Jill Sandique, there’s no doubt that this one will be exceptional. The KTG (Kain Tulog Gang) had dinner here last week to sample flavors from different regions of the Philippines. Truly, Corniche is one of the places where you can feel thrilled and satisfied with a meal that can bring joy, warmth, and comfort.
Culinaria Filipina Filipino Food Festival at Corniche (Diamond Hotel, Ermita, Manila)
Corniche at Diamond Hotel showcases international cuisine in a refined dining room where you can enjoy a great upscale meal composed of familiar recipes and dishes close to your heart. The vibe in the restaurant is comfortable and quiet so consider it for any date night or family affair. In normal occasions, both a la carte and buffet are available (Chinese, Filipino, Western, Indian, Japanese and more).
Since we are celebrating the Culinaria Filipina Filipino Food Festival, it would be best to take the chance to go buffet-dining and go heavy on fancy and delicious Filipino regional specialties that are a breath of fresh, exotic air and away from ordinary.
Chef Myrna Segismundo leads the presentation of well-prepared dishes with a contemporary twist and enhanced by select ingredients. Must-tries include Kinilaw na Salmon, Oysters on a Half Shell and Shrimps, Prime Roast Beef Tagalog, Caramelized Onions, and Basi Wine Sauce; Kesong Puti, Cherry Tomato and Pako Lato Salad; U.S. Beef Tenderloin Morcon a la Emilia, and more. Everything looked stunning with different colors and textures plated artistically.
Chef Jill Sandique makes desserts that can melt your heart. Most people don’t save room for dessert…but you should! Don’t miss luscious sweets such as the Dulce de Leche Cake, Tableya Cake, Peanut Chocolate and Muscovado Coconut Masi, and Suspiros de Macapuno con Natilla. The selections are wide enough that will let you hide in cake and ice cream if you want, but go in with an open mind and expect to try something outside of your comfort zone. 😛
It’s hard work keeping a buffet style constantly fresh and stocked. Diamond Hotel does as good a job you can expect. At Corniche’s Culinaria Filipina Filipino Food Festival, be enchanted by the flavors of the Philippines yet again with the unequaled creations of skilled chefs for only PhP 2,288 net per person.
To add excitement to the food fiesta, there will be a lucky draw where two diners will each win a two-night stay in Baguio for two when they spend a minimum of PhP 5,000 at the buffet!
