Our globally trained culinary team of the third-generation in their families proudly gathered their pamana (heritage) recipes to provide comfort and nostalgia. Some dishes include “Imbaliktad” an Ilocano style beef stir-fry with vegetables that was a favorite appetizer of Chef Karen Domingo’s grandfather, and the “Gotong Batangas” that is only cooked during special occasions by Chef Joey Rizalito’s grandmother.

These and more other Pamana recipes will be featured at the buffet spread including Filipino street food favorites such as kwek kwek, isaw, taho and an inviting Samalamig beverage station.
