HEAT, the all-day dining restaurant of EDSA Shangri-La, Manila recently revamped its buffet menu to include eight new signature dishes created by the restaurant's eight specialty chefs. In a private dining event organized by hotel, HEAT's new Executive Chef, Tobias Unger, presented the whole concept to us, highlighting on the international diversity of flavors that diners can enjoy at HEAT. Executive Sous Chef Roxanne Castillo took us then to a culinary tour of the world by presenting each of the eight specialty dishes.
|Curry Laksa Seafood Dumpling|
|Signature Maki and Magic Cube Roll|
|Spaghetti alle Vongole|
|Cheese Spätzle (Käsespätzle)|
|Curry Sausage (Currywurst)|
|Pomfret (Pampano) Tandoori|
|Adobo Marinated Prime Rib|
Giving a sweet ending to our lunch was Pastry Chef Martin Frowd's Raspberry Molted Brownie Double Shot Vodka Cheesecake with Raspberry Sauce. Such a very long name for a dessert which simply translates to a rich chocolate coated cheesecake with raspberry sauce. Absolutely yummy!
Another major change that we noticed at HEAT was the way they organized or group their dishes. Stations are no longer named after the regional origin of the dishes, rather, stations are now named based on the way dishes are cooked. The Boiled/Soup Station for example includes all dishes that are either boiled or served as a soup wile Grille Me Up Station features all dishes that are grilled.
The Wok Station presents all dishes that you can cook in a wok while the Sugar Raise Station will send you to sugarland with all the cakes and pastries on the dessert spread.
The buffet at HEAT is available from Monday to Sunday, 12:00nn to 2:30pm for lunch and 6:00pm to 10:30pm for dinner. Lunch buffet starts at P1,890 nett per person while dinner buffet starts at P2,205 nett per person. For inquiries and reservations, you can contact HEAT at (02) 633-8888 extension 2740 or 2741.
