Manila Hotel decided to do just that. It conceptualized to elevate Philippine street food from the food carts, sidewalk alleys and public markets, to our dining tables in this country’s premiere five-star hotel.
Street food served in style. Yes, that seems to be the goal here, and Manila Hotel’s culinary team led by Swiss Chef Konrad Walter seems to be doing a perfect job!
Here are just some of the dishes that’s taken a major overhaul in presentation, but otherwise tastes just as good (and even better!), reminiscent of all the good things we enjoy as Filipinos.
The Sun Deck at the Manila Hotel serves as the perfect venue to hold the street food buffet. At only P395++ per person, you’re in for a gastronomic treat as you relax and gaze into the Manila Bay sunset.
