One shouldn't pass up the chance to taste interesting variations of Filipino cuisine as Philippines' Department of Tourism, Hotel and Restaurant Association of the Philippines, and Bayview Park Hotel Manila's Kulinarya Festival will mark its end this coming July 29.
We were invited at its launch last May 2011 and they gave us a local food splurge of Bicolano dishes. Bicol express, pinangat, and native delicacies -- all familiar to us, have never really tasted as good as when you're eating them right under the fiesta-inspired buffet area of Bayview Park Hotel.
And now on its last week, Bayview Park Hotel welcome us with a buffet lunch from selected regions of the country.
Bistek Tagalog from the Katagalugan Region.
Pinakbet from my own region... Ilocos Region! (",)
Pancit Habhab from the Province of Quezon
And the crowd favorite... Kinilaw na Tanigue also from the Ilocano Region. It is also most requested by those who frequent Bayview's daily buffet said marketing assistant, Ms. Precy Mendoza.
The lineup of sweet delicacies from different provinces remind us of our childhood, especially the palitaw which we rarely see in the city this time.
The place is filled with office employees enjoying their 450-peso lunch break and packed with families and tourists who drop by to satisfy the innate craving for the real Filipino taste.
