Cowrie Grill, Manila Hotel’s signature restaurant, recently opened at the heart of the Promenade Shopping Center in Greenhills. Guests and VIPs delighted in a feast for the senses with the sight, sound, smell and taste of Cowrie Grill’s exquisite food offerings. Hundreds of cowrie shells adorned the place, symbolizing the many beautiful islands of the Philippines.
First, home-baked breads were offered to everyone present with a plate of Sun-dried Tomato Butter and Mixed Herb Butter.
Then the Fresh Mushroom Cappuccino was served. It’s a soup made with fresh mushrooms and herbal cappuccino and with crunchy mixed herb flatbread on the side.
A tableside preparation happened next before we were finally able to savor the flavor of the Maitre D’ Caesar Salad. It was good, one of the best Caesar salads I’ve ever had. Crisp and fresh veggies were generously sprinkled with bacon bits and well-coated with delicious dressing.
And then the main entrée was presented and sliced in front of the excited guests.
This US Angus Beef Prime Rib was so tender and flavorful. It was served with potato gratin (which was equally yummy) and veggies (French beans, spinach, cherry tomatoes and a roasted bulb of garlic).
Finally, it was time for dessert. This sweet and beautiful creation called Baked Alaska was flamed with brandy. It’s chiffon cake on the outside and vanilla and strawberry ice cream on the inside.
Cowrie Grill offers signature creations with the highest standards through the culinary expertise of Chef Michael So Chan and his highly trained team, so expect exciting surprises from them every time you visit.
