A Filipino Feast for the Senses at Café 8

Crimson Hotel Manila celebrates the 119th Philippine Independence day with a “Fiesta or Pista” featuring dishes from various provinces that collectively define the Filipino cuisine. 

Before entering Café 8 browse through the Hiraya Art Exhibit showcasing the creative works from local artists. The display is organised by the team behind “Art in the South in Filinvest” which Crimson Hotel supports. They are also be hosting an art fair on July 1 and 2, which I heard will be more affordable collection.

The culinary team of Café 8 presents flavours from around the Philippines – from the North’s Viigan longanisa, Visaya’s aromatic chicken inasal to the South’s kilawing tuna the Filipino version of Ceviche.
