Shangri-la Hotel Sydney’s Philippine Food Festival Returns On 20 September 2018

Those who enjoyed last year’s Philippine Food Festival will be thrilled to know that Shangri-la Hotel Sydney will be continuing the tradition for the sixth year in a row.


From 20 to 30 September 2018, the hotel’s Café Mix will be serving a varied selection of classic Filipino favorites like Sisig, Lechon, Chicken Inasal, and, of course, Adobo. As with last year, guest chefs will be flown in especially from the Philippines to ensure the authenticity of the spread, only this time, the culinary contingent is coming from Makati Shangri-la Hotel instead of its outpost at the Fort.

And so that the entire feast will end on a sweet note, the upcoming buffet will feature a live Halo-Halo station, allowing diners to build their own version of the beloved Filipino dessert with finely-shaved ice, sweetened chickpeas, sugar palm, purple yam paste, tapioca pearls, jackfruit slices, and scoops of ice cream. This, of course, is in addition to Executive Pastry Chef Anna Polyviou’s colorful display of show-stopping, rockstar treats.
