First up is their Honey Baked Ham (Php 590), which comes with orange and red wine flavored cabbage, apricot jam and a baked apple stuffed with raisins. The ham is tender and although it can stand alone when it comes to the taste when it’s eaten with the apricot jam, it takes the flavor to a different level as it adds sweetness to the otherwise savory ham. The baked apple is also something to look forward to. It’s the ideal blend of sweet and savory that is complemented by the taste of the raisins. The Honey Baked Ham is also a part of their Christmas platter (Php 3,200) and their Christmas Duo (Php 1,500).

Next up is the Duck Confit with Cranberry Sauce (Php 1,300). The duck confit is tender duck breast that is accompanied with red wine sauce and orange and red wine flavored cabbage. It also comes with a side of crunchy almond dumplings. The duck confit has a piquant taste that perfectly blends in when eaten with the sauce.
