Feast for the Day!

When Melchor and I were in Manila last February 2008, our coordinator Clarice had a food taste test planned for us at Edsa Shangri-La Hotel. This was to confirmed our menu choices for our big day.

We were ecstatic to learn in spite of our short time in Manila, we can still squeeze in the food tasting of the menu we will have. We went to Summer Palace Restaurant, the in-house Chinese food stop in ESL, and I guess who can't not like Chinese food? haha!

With our previous inquiry, we were presented Double Happiness Wedding Packages. Since we both love to eat, and feel that our guests will enjoy more with Chinese food, you guessed it right! We chose Lauriat for our menu.

We actually chose Chinese Lauriat Menu B, here's the original menu:
CHINESE SET MENU B
P1*,***.00 per table of 10 persons
Suckling pig combination
Hot prawn salad
Braised shark’s fin soup with crabmeat
Braised bamboo piths with Yunnan ham and garden greens
Braised pork spareribs with red wine sauce
Steamed lapu-lapu in light soy sauce
Sautéed minced chicken bedded on lettuce
Steamed crab with minced garlic
Fried rice “Yang Chow” style
Hot cream of mashed taro with sago
Two kinds of sweet dim sum desserts
Chinese Tea
Iced Tea

Due to some preferences, we kinda personalized the menu into the things we love to have... :) (hahaha! ndi naman obvious na matakaw noh? haha!)

We changed the following into:
1 ) Hot prawn salad to Steamed prawn with minced garlic - Melchor doesn't like anything with Mayonnaise in it... so Steamed prawn with minced garlic it is!

2)
Braised bamboo piths with Yunnan ham and garden greens to Braised two kinds of Mushroom with broccoli - ah.. hmmm.. we just prefer the broccoli. haha!

3)
Steamed crab with minced garlic to Fried Crabs with Spicy Salt - since we already have Steamed prawns, we decided to opt for the Fried Crabs.

4)
Hot cream of mashed taro with sago to Chilled Mango Sago - haha! We prefer the Mango Sago! hahaha!

5)
Two kinds of sweet dim sum desserts - Since we'll be serving portions of our yummy cake, we had this dim sum desserts deleted. hehe :) Will blog about the cake soon, when I finally finalize my design! hehe
