I was delighted to receive an an invite to SABROSO! A Festival of Filipino Gastronomical Journey & Expressions at The Midas Hotel & Casino.
Sabroso is a spanish word which means Delicious. So I was eager to see & taste what culinary masterpiece Chef ARNOLD GUEVARRA of Midas Hotel will prepare for his guests. Oh yes, aside from the flavors & aroma, I love a good plating. It enhances the whole dining experience don’t you think? :)
To be honest, I’ve never stepped foot inside the hotel. So even though I knew it was going to be a Filipino Food Festival -and you know I’m not too keen on our native fare, I reconsidered because it was our first time at Midas Hotel & Casino. And so, Kap & I went on a Friday -bellies hungry & ready for lunch at the Cafe.
2702 Roxas Blvd., PICC Reclamation Area, Pasay
(02) 902-0100 loc. 1184
Buffet rate: 1,920.00 php/person net lunch or dinner.
Buffet schedule: Lunch – 11:30 am to 2:30 pm Dinner – 6:30 pm to 10:30 pm
The media lunch started with a welcome OPM dance from Midas Hotel’s very own F&B staff in keeping with the Filipino theme. Necessary introductions were made & key Filipino dishes were presented beautifully & with flair to the 100 or so guests.
After which, we were invited to partake of the sumptuous buffet spread to our heart’s content.
