Man Ho opens at Marriott Manila
Chinese banquets for up to 1,800 people have become the norm at the Marriott Hotel Manila ever since Chef Law Wui Wing joined in 2014. While that may seem lavish, the food served at these banquets takes it to the next level.
Live abalone from Hong Kong, red king crabs that weigh five kilos each, braised bird’s nest in a broth simmered with Chinese ham for at least five hours, and buchi stuffed with Ferrero Rocher chocolate —Chef Law has prepared them all (and much more) for weddings, birthdays, corporate events and other festive occasions.
(L-R) Assorted Barbecue of the best Chinese roasts from pork, chicken and duck (P1,288), deeply tender Beef Fillet and Black Fungus with ginger and leeks (P1,188)
With the opening of Man Ho in Marriott Manila, these exquisite dishes will be available to customers daily, without the need to book an entire banquet. Starting November 29 at 6:00 pm, Man Ho will have à la carte menus for lunch and dinner. Customers can choose from familiar Cantonese dishes such as deep fried boneless chicken, Japanese style fried rice with chicken and salted fish, beef fillet and black fungus with ginger and leeks, sautéed porcini mushrooms, and braised seafood soup with caviar.
(L-R) Two of most rare and expensive commodities in Chinese cuisine are synced deliciously – Braised Abalone with Sea Cucumber and Vegetables (P2,888) , Concoction of Braised Seafood made into a soup accented with Caviar (P628)
At this point Man Ho already has bookings for banquets up to this month. Some of the bookings are from repeat customers who have been extremely pleased with the delicious cuisine and the excellent service.
(L-R) All-time favorite dim sum, Steamed Custard Buns with Egg Yolk, made delicate and flavor-filled (P48 per piece) , Sweetened Almond Cream with tinges of egg white surprise (P288 ++)
“I always talk to the guests because I’m the one who knows everything about the Chinese food we serve,” says Chef Law. “I make sure they’re happy. If they’re happy, then I’m happy.”
While Man Ho aims to provide authenticity in its Chinese food preparation, it also anticipates attracting modern food connoisseurs by incorporating contemporary design touches to its otherwise elegant Chinese-inspired interiors. Guests will be welcomed by an elegant ambiance of high ceilings, intricate wood carving details, and floor-to-ceiling windows giving a lush view of the golf course. The restaurant has a total of 140 seats and features 6 private dining rooms for up to 24 persons. Two private dining rooms can be combined for larger gatherings.
Man Ho is conveniently situated in the new Marriott West Wing with connection to the Main Hotel and the Marriott Grand Ballroom.
