Dreaming of enjoying lavish treats in front of the beach but hesitant of leaving the city because of the pandemic’s travel restrictions? Stay on foot. Save your gas and visit Metro Manila’s The Food Truck at Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila.
Set up at the five-star hotel’s exuberant bayside garden, The Food Truck presents that refreshing vibe beaches provide. With a magnifique sight of the sparkling bay while it offers sumptuous international favorites complemented with overflowing beer and soft drinks, happy hour becomes more thrilling.
Chef Bettina Arguelles, the first-ever Filipina executive chef in a five-star international branded hotel in the Philippines, showcases popular food truck fare such as tacos and burgers, smokehouse-grilled specialties including smoked salmon, bellychon and beef brisket, as well as sizzling platters like classic sisig, sizzling gambas, and sizzling squid are all prepared a la minute for a guaranteed Accor ALLSAFE seal.
A must try is their cheeseburger slider. It’s an all-beef patty with lettuce, tomato and cheddar in homemade brioche bun. The bellychon is also unforgettable because of its crunchy unique tangy taste. Make sure to also get a taste of the Tuna Avocado Bowl. It’s a rice bowl with vegetables, avocado and tuna on top. There’s also the tuna kinilaw. The presence of coconut milk in the kinilaw is unexpected but a hit to our tastebuds.
Another treat for The Food Truck adventure is the warm, friendly and accommodating gestures of the staff, always ready to assist, with executive chef Bettina also around supervising the food preparation.
Great customer service, the wide selection of appetizing food, the unlimited beer and soda, its refreshing ambiance really make the overall experience gratifying and is worth going back to.
The Food Truck by Sofitel is available from Thursday to Sunday from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
