Savor the luxury of the ocean

Marriott Hotel’s café added Canadian lobsters to its buffet line every Tuesday for the whole month of April. There is a myriad of ways to enjoy this fresh seafood. These huge lobsters are perfect for any style of cooking–boiled, grilled, or drizzled in a flavorful sauce. Crack it open and taste the silky texture of the lobster’s meat. Specialty dishes like Lobster Thermidor are also available to try. This is a classic French lobster with meat stuffed in cream and covered with over-browned cheese. You may also opt for Garlic Lobster flambéed in white wine or enjoy a citrus flavor by grilling it with lemon slice extract.

These flavorful hors d’oeuvres would certainly thrill your palate for the main course. This is composed of the well-marbled and perfectly grilled slabs of steak. These go perfectly with sides like a classic garlic whipped potato, sautéed carrots, thick and flavorful mushroom risotto, and black peppercorn sauce. For a sweet finish, there is also a dessert buffet table with signature cakes and sweets of Marriott Manila’s Executive Pastry Chef, Fil Afable.
