Master chefs Duong Dai Doan and Le Duy Thanh will be whipping up traditional Vietnamese dishes with a healthy twist.
If the thought of Vietnamese food â€“ whether itâ€™s a comforting bowl of pho or a plate of crispy spring rolls â€“make you salivate, this food festival is perfect for you.
Spiral, an award-winning restaurant at Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila, will be presenting the latest installment of its Flavors of the World culinary series from April 23 to 29.
Headlined by master chefs Duong Dai Doan and Le Duy Thanh, who will be flying in from the historic Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi, the food festival will feature a series of traditional Vietnamese dishes with a sumptuous, healthy twist.
Renowned for their aroma, heat, sweetness, and sourness, Vietnamese cuisine is largely influenced by neighboring countries China, Laos, Cambodia, and Thailand, as well as France (which has played a major part of its history).
Diners will find themselves savoring stir-fried dishes, noodle-based soups, and more; all made with fresh ingredients.
During the food festival, the chefs will present two kinds of classic Vietnamese noodle soups: pho (traditional Vietnamese soup consisting of chicken, beef, flat rice noodles, and herbs) and bun thang (noodle soup originating from Hanoi served with prawn, pork, mushroom, salted egg, and herbs).
Other menu highlights include cha ca (white fish fillet with turmeric, galangal, fermented rice, and shrimp paste) and pork bun cha (bun noodles with mix herbs salad, and Vietnamese dipping sauce), along with favorites like fresh spring rolls, roasted chicken with honey and spices, as well as other refreshing desserts.
Prices start from US$52.70 (PHP$ 2,750) for the Spiral lunch set.
