JDH and I tried the food in Old Manila because we heard that The Peninsula Manila flew in guest French Chef Patrice Martineau of The Peninsula Tokyo.
We decided to try out the Business Lunch Special. JDH had the Salmon and I had the chicken.
Our first course is Marinated scallop with mango-passion fruit chutney,
spiced watermelon with citrus broth.
We had a lot of bread because the food took a while....
This is my Champagne poached French heritage red label chicken with celery trio
and mushroom fricassee.
JDH's Tasmanian salmon confit with caramelized french fig, lettuce mousseline,
crispy potato smoked salmon salad.
Dessert was Apple citrus Vacherin, Granny Smith gelee, cider reduction and
Calvados chantilly cream.
