There’s More To British Food Than Just Fish And Chips!
Sample more British flavors at Marco Polo Ortigas Manila until March 24.
If you haven't gone beyond fish and chips when it comes to British food, then it's time to step out of your comfort zone. You can try out British flavors at the Marco Polo Manila Ortigas Manila until March 24 with a spread prepared by the culinary team of Executive Chef Alisdair Bletcher.
Shepherd's Pie and Fish and Chips at Cucina
Fish and chips, a quintessential British meal, is part of the buffet spread at Cucina. Expect to find beer-battered fish paired with fried potatoes and don't forget the malted vinegar and mushy peas (it's also traditionally served with curry sauce).
If you love potatoes, then Shepherd's Pie should be on your must-try list. It's a filling pie usually made with lamb or beef with a mashed potato crust.
Little else spells British more than afternoon tea. Pair your favorite tea with scones (tender pastries with a nice crumb paired with clotted cream, butter, or jam. Or all three!), egg tarts, and pies.
Cocktails made with Pimm's
Have you tried Pimm's, a liquor made in England from dry gin, fruit juices, and spices? End the day with cocktails made with this British liquor which is usually taken with lemonade or lemon-lime soda in England.
