Ongoing till September 16 (Sunday)Â at the Diamond Hotel is Makanan Lazat: A Malaysian Food Festival featuring an authentic Malay spread featuring the culinary masterpieces of veteran Malaysian Guest Chef Cheong Yan See, who is currently Enderun Collegesâ€™ Culinary Department head.
If youâ€™re not familiar with Malaysian cuisine, youâ€™re missing out on an incredible culinary adventure. Exotic, colorful and full of enticing flavors, Malaysian food is an extraordinary combination of native Malay, Chinese, and Indian food traditions, and a myriad of other ethnic groups from its different regions.
There isn’t a lot of good Malaysian food available in Metro Manila, so do try not to miss this rare opportunity to enjoy some of Malaysiaâ€™s most popular dishes like its Curry Laksa, Nasi Lemak (steamed coconut rice) and Satay Ayam, or Malay Chicken and Beef Malay Sticks cooked upon order and served with some of its traditional condiments.
While exploring its more exotic dishes like the Dalcha Kambing (Lamb Shank with lentil curry) and Chef Seeâ€™s very own motherâ€™s version of Chili Prawns (Udang Masak Sambal Pedas), you might just bump into the cast of The Phantom of the OperaÂ as well especially since the whole cast is staying at the hotel till the end of their Manila performances.
For inquiries and reservations: call Corniche at the Diamond Hotel at (632)528-3000 loc. 1121.
