As The Hotel Show Philippines opens its doors this week in Metro Manila, we had a look at some of the hotels that are really getting people talking in the market there at present. The Mariott Manila is doing just that with its new vegan set menu at one of its top restaurants, the ironically named CRU Stakehouse. CRU, looking to ensure that it caters to all audiences, has created an exceptional menu for vegan eaters that does not disappoint.
Going vegan is currently one of the world’s biggest trends in healthy eating. With more in the media than ever before about the potential health implications of eating meat and dairy products including via the popular Netflix documentary ‘What the Health’ – people are looking for new and interesting ways to eat a plant based diet.
The award-winning CRU Steakhouse is providing a game-changer for the Philippines market with their vegan menu. The restaurant, based around an open kitchen concept, strives on creating quality food with fresh and organic ingredients. An example of this includes their vegan chocolate, straight from Felchlin, Switzerland. Vegan or not, you should not miss the opportunity to try this special culinary creation.
THE VEGAN MENU
For the starter, Mediterranean Chickpea Falafels come accompanied with lemon-artichoke puree, grape relish and a of touch cilantro oil. Moving on to the main course, grilled forest mushrooms and leeks with a garnish-like basil gremolata, come with a side of garlic crushed baby potatoes, and tomatoes. For the grand finale, there’s the chance to experience the restaurants’ famous Chocolate ice pop mojito, which is a flourless chocolate cake, with coconut mojito parfait and rum salted caramel.
On a recent interview with executive chef Meik Brammer with TTGmice Magazine he responded when asked what he liked most about his role: “The feeling of creating something that people are willing to pay for”. Read the full interview here: http://bit.ly/2uY3A2S
Marriott Manila continues the vegan trend by introducing some delightful vegan treats found at the Marriott Bakery Café. Executive pastry chef Fil Afable partnered up with Anil Rohira who’s the Felchin corporate pastry chef and this dynamic duo created their popular dark and white chocolate vegan bars.
