Crimson + Baro’t Saya = Fiesta!

June, Independence Day, and local festivities always go hand in hand in the Philippines.

“What better way to celebrate than showcase what Filipinos can be proud of?” Mr. Gerhard Doll, General Manager of Crimson Hotel Filinvest City, Manila.

“We support, wholeheartedly, the local art scene – both the recognized and the up-and-coming artists from the south of Manila.” Doll ended to officially open the event.

The ‘fiesta’ festivities begins with the ceremonial hacking of the lechon baboy with extra crispy skin and juicily sumptuous meat.

Apart from the standard Italian and Japanese selections, Cafe 8 has transformed an entire bar into famed Filipino favorites.

It starts from kare-kareng ox tail with bagoong, jaw pinching sinigang na bangus belly, pinaputok na pla-pla and a long line of savory dishes.

Right beside are sweets in the form of marngo sago, scramble, dirty ice cream or street sorbet, buko pie and halo halo.

To those who are curious, Cafe 8 included 2 fruity lambanog (strongest alcohol available in the country) based drinks.

If that’s not enough expect classic Filipino tunes completing the package of delivering a ‘fiesta’ in the comforts of Crimson Hotel Filinvest.

All of these are readily available any time of the week for 1514 nett for lunch or 1729 nett for dinner.
