Slow Burn MNL: Surf & Turf Platter (P999 for half-tray, for 2-3; P1,599 for whole tray, for 4-5)

The truffle umami rice is a meal in itself (it's that flavorful!) but throw in tender ribs and garlic shrimp, plus French beams and tomatoes and you have a meal worthy of a celebration. Slow Burn MNL also has a new Chicken and Chorizo Pasta Platter (P999) on the menu: chorizo adds spice and flavor to the creamy sauce. Yum!
