Old Manila offers impeccable service, an innovative blending of flavours, and an elegant setting—for an evening to impress, be impressed, and even be surprised.
Chef de cuisine Bertrand Charles greets guests after they are comfortably seated and guides them through the menu, a great help when every item on the list is tempting.
Surprising the palate as well is the poached lobster starter. The seafood morsel is just right in its texture and tenderness, but the sauce it gently lays on is enhanced by hints of flavours that complement that of the lobster’s, not one overpowering another.
His signature dish, pan-seared foie gras, is a divine brew of a strange mix—foie gras, ginger, apple tuna. You will be in good hands following Chef Bertrand’s suggestions. G/F The Peninsula Manila, Ayala Avenue cor. Makati Avenue, Makati City TEL: +632 887 2888 www. peninsula.com/manila
