Delectable choices

We’re at a time when it’s still risky to go outside — staying home or leaving the house even for an hour are things that should still be carefully contemplated on.

Gone are the days when you could dine for hours at a restaurant or go lounge with friends for a staycation at a hotel. But that doesn’t mean you could no longer enjoy your favorite dishes and snacks while in quarantine. You can, but most definitely with proper health and safety protocols.

Returning to tradition

Marco Polo Ortigas’ culinary team, led by executive Chinese chef Ken Leung, continues to celebrate culture with Lung Hin’s new line of Hong Kong Chef’s recommendations and a special selection of culinary gems fit for every palate.

Guests may enjoy chef Ken’s Pan-fried Minced Pork Chive Dumplings topped with dried Sakura Shrimp, Sauteed Squid with

Three-Kinds of Onion, Steamed Garoupa Fillet with Olive and Ginger in Soy Sauce and Chilled Red Bean with Coconut Milk Jelly until 31 October. This limited selection is available for dine-in (still in compliance to health protocols) only.

Chef Ken Leung also presents a seven-course meal which includes the restaurant’s favorites Deep-fried Japanese Oysters in Wasabi Sauce, Crispy Roasted Baby Duck in Black Pepper Sauce and Steamed Live Crab in Chinese Wine and Egg White served with E-Fu Noodle all for a minimum dining group of five adults.

Log-on to www.marcopolohotels.com or contact (632) 7720-7777 for more details on the hotel’s compliance on safety protocols when dining.

Healthy and yummy

Staying healthy is quite easy for some. But keeping a good diet, which means resisting sweet cravings, can be a little hard for everybody.

But it won’t hurt if you give in to your cravings once in a while especially if it involves a healthy snack. Nice and Natural nut bars, which contain protein and is a good source of fiber, are made from natural ingredients such as nuts, wholegrain oats and fruit bits all drizzled with chocolate.

Nice & Natural nut bar comes in Choco Almond Crunch and Mixed Berry Crunch flavors, and is available at SM Stores, Robinsons Supermarket, Shopwise, Mercury Drug Stores, Rustan’s Supermarket, Ministop and 7-Eleven outlets nationwide.

Happy Birthday, Charlie!

A bestseller that perfectly blends both sweet and savory flavors, Yellow Cab’s Charlie Chan pasta is perfect for anyone who also craves a bit of kick in every bite.

The pizza restaurant chain is dedicating four days of promo (from 16 to 20 September) to celebrate its unique dish that makes everyone want more because of its generous serving of scrumptious chicken strips, juicy shiitake mushrooms, fresh spring onions and crunchy roasted peanuts mixed in a spicy oriental sauce.

The limited time offer is available in select Yellow Cab stores nationwide for dine-in, curbside pick-up, take-out, drive-thru and delivery. This is also available via GrabFood, FoodPanda and LalaFood.
