FOURTEEN Food Station – Buffet At Cafe Ilang-ilang, Manila Hotel

#ManilaHotel #CafeIlangIlang

Bigger Place, More Choices. Indeed, Manila gives you More Than The Usual.

The famed Cafe Ilang-ilang of The Manila Hotel was renovated. It is spacious enough to accommodate up to 320 diners. To be able to feed this hungry bunch, Cafe Ilang-ilang buffet has more than a dozen food stations. It even has the Cigar Room and the Wine & Cheese Room available for small parties of a dozen or two.

The cooking stations have chefs behind them preparing the meals. You can request for anything. I had one chef prepare my shabu-shabu while I pick out a slice of their roast beef at the other food station.

Here are what you can expect in Cafe Ilang-ilang:

  • Japanese Buffet to enjoy tempura hot off from the fryer.
  • Freshly-sliced sashimi.
  • Baby back ribs and roast beef at the Churrasco station.
  • Halal kitchen for our Muslim brothers.
  • Pizza, all kinds.
  • Signature Pizza of Manila Hotel.
  • Desserts under Chef Jerome. He has his signature macaroons.
  • Ice cream.
  • Filipino food, of course!
  • Korean station!
  • Mongolian station.
  • And many more!

You may say that you have been to most eat all you can places at Manila, but being in Cafe Ilang-ilang during lunch will totally be different. It is like being around the World all at once.

Try it out and enjoy Manila!

Experience Good Food in a Provincial Setting in the City: APAG Marangle

#PressRelease

Quite known in the province of Pampanga and was rated as #1 in GMA 7 Pinaka Yummy for 2015 feature for the said province, APAG MARANGLE is now here in the metropolis!  Located at Park Square, Ayala Center in Makati City, APAG MARANGLE is set to win the hearts of the city people with authentic Kapampangan food and service.

Established in 2008 at Bacolor, Pampanga,  APAG MARANGLE simply started with food whose flavor is truly home grown and has grown from generation to generation but keeping true with its root.  The aim of the people behind this restaurant is to deliver Kapampangan food in its true sense; no fusion, no twist to capture the market, simply good, home cooked, Kapampangan dishes.  With good food, they then matched it with true-blue Kapampangan courtesy and service.  For Cherry Tan, manager and owner of APAG MARANGLE, “We are here to let people experience how it is to be welcomed in a Kapampangan’s house and be served with food coming from our kitchen and from our hearts.”

From appetizers to desserts, all the food offerings are prepared the Kapampangan way.  From slow cooking of meat to sauces flavored right and true, you are to expect rich and delightful dishes to try and dine.

Since it is Kapampangan themed, expect dishes that are locally found in that province such as Camaru Ginisa (crickets), Buro (fermented rice) and Betute (stuffed fried frog); some of the local delicacies that you have to try and experience at least once in your life if you are a non-Kapampangan.  APAG MARANGLE also offers food that we are familiar with such as Kare-kare and Sinigang(Sigang).  With the food selection that they have, there is something for everybody.  This is a place that is good for the family, friends and even visitors who would like to experience real provincial Filipino flavors.

Currently, they have three stores – the original restaurant in Bacolor, Pampanga, another at the Marquee Mall in Angeles, Pampanga and the latest which is here in Park Square in Makati City.  With the latest addition of the Park Square branch, they are currently serving during lunch and dinner but come June they will launch their breakfast offering for those who would like either a plated or a Filipino breakfast buffet.  With prices that is comparable to other restaurants in the area of Makati, what is the edge of APAG MARANGLE?  The answer:  GOOD AUTHENTIC FILIPINO-KAPAMPANGAN FOOD that you would love and enjoy!

With a space capable of seating nearly a hundred and an area for group meetings, APAG MARANGLE Park Square is ready to all your dining needs.  The whole place is even designed to replicate the original restaurant in Bacolor, Pampanga.  The whole place simply echoes a strong provincial ambiance despite the fact that it is situated at the business area of Makati.  Dining here would be similar to dining in the province without moving out of the city.

Come and visit this new treasure in the city of Makati and experience authentic Kapampangan dishes the way it should be; no fuzz, no fusion!  You can call them at their Makati branch with numbers  (02) 688 5812 and (0925) 875 1100 for reservations and inquiries.
