Starting June 9, Sheraton Manila has expanded its buffet spread at S Kitchen, aptly dubbed Sunday Fiesta.
“Sunday brunch has become popular here in Manila, so we created a concept that invites people to not just eat but dine like there is a celebration. It’s that overall authentic experience of local culture through food,” says executive chef Kiko Santiago.
S Kitchen features an array of international selections from East to West but the Filipino station remains the focal point. On Sunday Fiesta, however, it’s made extra special with more dishes: fresh lumpia on-the-go, which is wrapped fresh in front of guests, grilled selections over charcoal including lechon stuffed with paella, liempo, pork barbecue, isaw, chicken inasal with bacon, binagoongan with mango and fried rice with salted egg and dilis (anchovy), spicy goat kaldereta, and classic kare-kare with homemade bagoong, and seafood cooked in different ways via its dampa station.
Sheraton Manila chefs also leveled up their game by making their own native delicacies like biko sa latik (rice with coconut residue topping), banana-langka turon, ube maja with cheese, and a perfectly soft and chewy palitaw (sweet rice cake). Accompanying the Filipino fare are Western and Asian dishes that revolve around sushi, sashimi, cheese, cold cuts, steak, dim sum, curry, soups, gelato, and crepe.
