Advance Happy Chinese New Year! Some of us would probably celebrate this special occasion in a Chinese restaurant with our family along Binondo in Manila. But for those who are searching for a luxurious and elegant place to welcome the ‘Year of the Rooster‘, the new Man Ho Manila restaurant located at the newly opened West Wing of Marriott Manila, is a good choice to celebrate the upcoming Lunar New Year.
This 2017, Man Ho offers the Prosperity and Good Fortune lunch and dinner sets.
We liked a lot of things about the restaurant; from the wall decor to their tablewares. The lovely lazy susan as well as the classic and elegant serving plates got our attention. Moreover, Man Ho‘s hotel-quality service left nothing more to be desired.
Man Ho Prosperity Lunch Set
Here’s what we had from our Prosperity Lunch Set a couple of days ago. We started with a set of marinated black fungus and marinated raddish. Both cold dishes were refreshing and prepared us for the big meal ahead.
Next came the assorted barbecued meat combi-suckling-pig which was already good as a main dish even by itself.
Seats For Two loved the ‘lechon‘ (suckling pig) part. 🙂
Not to be missed in any traditional Chinese lauriat set is the soup. We had a Braised Fish Lip Soup Sea Cucumber with Black Mushroom.
The long name is justified by the taste, so you wouldn’t mind. Fish lips? It sounds and tastes as interesting as well. 🙂
For the main dishes, we started with the Sauteed Clam Meat Sliced Chicken Chili Sauce. We appreciated the tenderness of the clam and the sliced chicken, specially that of the former, which is a rarity.
Welcoming the ‘Year of the Rooster’ is a delicious Deep Fried Golden and Crispy Chicken. Moreover, the stir fried Kai Lan in ginger sauce and Steamed Live Garoupa are noteworthy.
The fish was served in a big plate, de-boned and served right in front of us.Needless to say, the steamed garoupa was very fresh and flavorful.
Like most Chinese lunch or dinner, rice is usually served at the end of the meal, before the dessert.
It’s done for guests to enjoy the flavors of the dishes. We had Fujian style fried rice.
This private room can accommodate about 20 guests. We also discussed about the upcoming Miss Universe promotions at Marriott. If you’re dropping by Marriott Manila anytime soon, please do drop by the bakery and get this decadent Marriott Tiara cake specially made for Miss Universe 2017 in Manila.

To welcome the prosperous new year and end a wonderful lunch, we were served with three kinds of desserts – steamed custard bun with egg yolk, red beans cream dumpling and coconut pudding with red beans.
