Filipino food fest in Sydney

Filipino food could be the next best thing in Sydney as foodies explore other tastes on offer in this cosmopolitan hub.

Delicious though seemingly underrated, Filipino cuisine has attracted interest on a commercial scale with some major hotels now planning Filipino food festivals, Shangri-La Hotel at The Rocks among them.

Last month, the hotel flew in three senior chefs – Rico Venzon, Erma Palanca and Blanche Oropesa – from Shangri-La Hotel Manila to oversee the planning, preparation and presentation of the week-long lunch and dinner Filipino-cooking inspired buffet.

Old-time favourites such as lechon, kare-kare and adobo complemented appetisers, salads and desserts to feast on.
