Marriott Hotel Manila: Taste the Australian Outback

The folks at Marriott Hotel Manila are taking the Outback to the metro this month, celebrating Taste Australia with a rich diversity of food and drinks served all over the hotel! Savor the steaks from the Outback, relish the seafood from the Great Barrier Reef, imbibe the wines from the cellars of Adelaide, or feast on the rich meat pies from Victoria.

The Marriott Café is hosting an Australian Wine Buffet (P825) with five of its most excellent wines from the vineyards of Australia available every night, together with featured cheeses that create the perfect partnership on your palate. There is also a new gelato flavor on the menu - Vittoria Australian Coffee - that will be available exclusively for this month which makes for a sweet ending to an already delicious meal.

At Cru Steakhouse, experience posh dining and try the limited Chermoula-Marinated Australian Lamb Loin (P1,900), prepared by Marriott’s very own Chef Rej Casanova. Couple the dish with any of the three taste-selected Shiraz wines and don't forget to try their selection of cheeses for a classic, well-loved combination. Order a cup of hot, steaming Vittoria Australian Coffee to end your big meal and to pair with dessert.

Eat, drink, and be merry the Aussie way at the Greatroom with original meat pies, juicy surf n’ turf, and savory side dishes! Couple it with a mug of XXL beer, a glass of Australian wine or one soda to complete the rustic experience in all Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays of January, 6pm – 10:30pm for P1,100.

You will probably find me at Java+, savoring the rich flavors of freshly baked meat pies in three savory flavors: Beef, Mushroom & Onion (P480 nett), Beef, Potatoes & Mushy Peas (P450 nett), and Beef & Cheese (P420 nett). Enjoy it with Vittoria Australian Coffee Frappucino and find your corner at their best-loved coffee shop for the ultimate comfort food.

For guests who want to experience Australia in the comforts of their own rooms, all in-house guests may order Wine Carafes (P350 for 270ml), with a choice of WIllowglen Chardonnay or Willowglen Cabernet/Shiraz. Couple it with an Australian Cheese Trio (P570), a platter of Rubicon Red, Wild Wasabi, and Smoked Cheddar with a side of homemade jam, toasted crostini, and spiced pecans to perfectly tickle your palate.

Meanwhile, those who wish to soak up the sun with an ice cold beer on hand can choose from the local San Miguel Draft (P210) to Australia’s all-original ales such as Foster’s Lager (P250) and Victoria Bitter (P250).

So if you ever find yourself mucking around Manila, nursing a craving for succulent lamb loins, savory meat pies, or the cool, fruity wines from the Land Down Under, check out the Marriott Hotel Manila and join in the delicious Australian celebration! See you guys there!
