It’s a known fact that Filipinos are hearty eaters. Despite being a small country, there is so much variety of flavours and dishes served in every part of the Philippine archipelago. There’s not one definite “comfort food” like fried chicken in the USA or sweets in most parts of the world, because Filipino food in itself brings comfort to every Filipino, wherever they may be in the world.
For Filipinos based overseas, one thing that bonds our community is undoubtedly our love for Filipino food. Although our cuisines haven’t received wide international acclaim (yet), there’s just so much to love about Filipino flavours that would definitely satisfy any palate.
Catch Mouth-watering Pinoy Classic Dishes at “Fiesta Filipino”
In line with this, the Philippine Embassy in Singapore is inviting our kababayans and expat friends to come and support the Filipino food festival, themed “Fiesta Filipino” at the Mandarin Orchard, which will run from June 22 to 30 only.
The said event commemorates the 50th Anniversary of the Philippine-Singapore diplomatic relations founded on the values of cultural, economic, as well as food diplomacy.
Bearing these in consideration, the commemorative event aims to feature the vibrant flavours of authentic Filipino cuisine, as interpreted by guest chef Michelle Adrillana, in the form of traditional favourites which include Sisig (Chopped Crispy Pork Bits, Onions, and Chili Pepper on a Sizzling Plate), Seafood Pancit Buko (Seafood Coconut Noodles), and Adobo (Pork Braised in Vinegar, Soy Sauce, Bay Leaves, and Peppercorn), among others.
The promotion will be launched with a special performance from the internationally acclaimed Philippine Madrigal Singers – the first choral group to win the European Grand Prix for Choral Singing twice.
As the Philippines celebrates its Independence Day this month, this one of a kind dinner out with friends and family will bring fond memories of home, as well as spark a greater appreciation for Filipino culture, even to those who have yet to visit the country.
The event will run from the 22nd up until the 30th of this month with the following schedule and prices:
Sunday-Wednesday: SGD 88++ per adult guest; SGD 33++ per child (aged 6-12)
Thursday-Saturday: SGD 108++ per adult guest; SGD 48++ per child (aged 6-12)
For enquiries and reservations, you may call 6831-6288 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
