MarrioTt Hotel Manila’s Gastronomia de España, launched recently was a month-long Spanish food festival showcasing the cuisine, wine and passion of Spain. It was a night of fun, Spanish tapas, wines and fascinating Flamenco dancers
that the guests enjoyed.
Guest chef Victor Burgos of Valladolid Spain, tickled the taste buds of celebrities, media, clients and foreign dignitaries as they relished mouthwatering jamon Iberico, jamon Serrano, olives, manchego cheese, paella, chorizos, pintxos, churros, arroz con leche and other Spanish delights.
Adding color to the ambience, the Flamenco dancers flown all the way from Spain gave their strong yet graceful performance showcasing their percussive footwork with intricate hand and body movements.
The event was also fueled with well-loved Spanish music played by Arriba band and Primo, a renowned trio from Resort’s World Manila; free flowing Sangria and wines from Spain brought by Bodegas Hidalgo and the raffle much to the delight of everyone present.
Truly, Marriott Manila is becoming to be the most sought-after dining destination on the other side of the metro.
