We’ve always been proud of our Filipino cuisine. You can find unique and delightfully delicious dishes in every region around the country. Bicol’s pinangat and laing, Cebu’s lechon, sisig from Pampanga, the Ilocos bagnet, and Batangas bulalo are just a few of our favorites.
“Kusina Kultura Day” @ Hilton Manila’s Kusina Sea Kitchen
For those who are craving for some Filipino cuisine, Kusina Sea Kitchen located in Hilton Manila, started the year with an irresistible offer called Kusina Kultura Day!
It’s a special buffet offering held every Sunday from January to March 2020, showcasing an array of Filipino classics with signature lechon, dampa style seafood, and sumptuous local desserts, among others.
Last week, we revisited Kusina Kitchen for a feast of Filipino favorites.
We kicked-off our long-due Sunday buffet at the Talipapa area, the Dampa Paluto-style where you can choose from an array of seafood options and have it cooked/prepared by the chef, in any way you want.
Notwithstanding, we had a plateful of butter-garlic shrimp and crab!
While waiting for our requested dish, we started with a bowl of hot Sinigang and that of Bulalo soup to warm our tummies. Both tasted good and are rich in flavor.
We even shared a second round of the latter. It’s a treat especially in this pleasantly cool January weather in the Philippines.
Aside from Filipino favorites, there is also a good spread of international cuisines that can suit the global taste buds of most visitors. These includes the Paella Valenciana, Yangchow, Mussel Marinara, Pork Loin Sambal, Buttered Vegetables, and Beef in White Sauce.
Add to that the Beef Lengua, Chicken Coqauban, and Bolognese Pasta, among others.
It is noteworthy to mention (nonetheless expected) that Kusina‘s Signature Lechon is a crowd’s favorite. The huge roast pig was literally wiped-out in less than an hour after buffet opening.
The melt-in-your-mouth roast pork was flavorful inside and had crispy skin. You can have it as it is, or eat with plain rice or Arroz Valenciana.
For Mrs. Seats For Two, it goes well with another Filipino dish called pinakbet.
Needles to say, we had a filling lunch buffet. Our photos above proves it all! 🙂
But we made sure there’s room for dessert.
In between plates, we had a few scoops of Pinoy sorbetes and kakanin (rice cakes) such as puto and bibingka which are variants of steamed Filipino rice cakes. There were sweetened delicacies in colorful wrappers as well.
As lights were dimmed and window shades pulled down, guests were treated with some special cultural dances and performances while enjoying their desserts! We were pleased with the traditional folk dance and we’re glad that the hotel showcased such for local and foreign guests to enjoy.
“Kusina Kultura Day” at Hilton Hotel Manila‘s Kusina Kitchen is held every Sundays until March 2020. For reservations, you may call Kusina Sea Kitchen.
