Resorts World Manila (RWM) welcomes the summer season with Coco Fest 2017. Every day until the end of May, RWM signature restaurants and Newport Mall dining outlets will thrill your taste buds with an assortment of coconut-infused dishes in a culinary celebration of this quintessentially Filipino flavor.
Guests and diners can get a taste of island cuisine from Impressions, Ginzadon, Passion, The Terrace, Café Maxims, Bar 360, and Victoria Harbour Café, as well as popular restaurants like Johnny Kahuku, UCC, Mr Kurosawa and Johnny Chow.
Impressions, RWM’s multi-awarded French fine dining restaurant, has added a Filipino flourish to a traditionally European dish with the Coco Salmon with Ube Puree and Curry Tuile. A seared salmon filet rests on a bed of mashed ube and coco foam sauce, topped crispy tuile curry. The surprisingly delightful symphony of flavors is a sophisticated diner’s dream.
The Terrace at Maxims Hotel takes your summer barbecue to the next level with its Coconut Piña Colada Pork Ribs – juicy, fork tender ribs are covered in a tropical barbecue sauce that will make your taste buds dance with hints of tangy pineapples and sweet coconuts. The Coconut Milk Rice with Chicken Curry at Victoria Harbour Café at RWM’s Gaming Area is a fragrant rice dish cooked in coconut milk and pandan leaf.
For dessert, Café Maxims gives a cheesy update to two classic Filipino sweets: Coconut Macaroons and Buko Pie. By weaving in finely grated cheese to the macaroons and pie, Café Maxims’ pastry chefs balance out their rich sweetness with the lightly salty taste of cheese. In a nod to the typical Asian’s love for rice, Ginzadon – RWM’s Korean and Japanese restaurant, has created a tri-color sweet glutinous rice roll with coco jam and roasted desiccated coconut. Passion’s Sweet Corn and Coconut Cake is a perfect combination of Filipino and Chinese flavors.
Participating Newport Mall restaurants have an assortment of savory and sweet dishes that will open up your senses to the versatility of coconut as a cooking ingredient. Coco Fest 2017 is RWM’s contribution to Madrid Fusion Manila, the biggest gastronomic and cultural experience event of the Philippine Department of Tourism.
“At RWM, we celebrate the best of Filipino culture in every way we can,” Chef Cyrille Soenen, RWM Director for Culinary Arts and Maîtres Cuisiniers de France said. “Summer in the Philippines is a truly happy season, and Filipino cuisine has so much to offer in terms of technique and flavor. The Coco Fest is one way we can deliver a first class Filipino experience through food.”
