Lucky enough, Old Manila had a degustacion dinner on their menu. Iggy and I opted for the degustacion with wine pairings, Maite had the degustacion without the wine. Tommie, Germs and Edith decided to go ala carte...
Here was our degustacion menu:
we had a complimentary appetizer to start..
Cold smoked wagyu beef carpaccio
Beef carpaccio is an Italian dish consisting of partially cooked beef, cut into thin slices, and served with arugula and a dressing of olive oil and lemon juice. It is usually offered as an appetizer at restaurants. Our carpaccio was served with poached quail egg topped with black truffle tapenade.. It was really good!!!
Seared jumbo prawns
Succulent, rich, delectable are the best description I can think of describing this dish!!!
Pan seared duck foie gras with spiced pineapple and Port wine glaze - a must try !!!!
Old Manila seafood tasting - Blue swimmer crab, silver anchovies, Pecorino chips, melted lardo.
Olive crusted lamb loin
and Tommie had the tried and tested Prime US Angus rib eye..
Old Manila is located inside The Peninsula Manila.
