One of the the things that my family and I agree on is our love for seafood. Put a bunch of seafood in front of us and we would have no qualms polishing it off in a flash. This has been proven many times in the past so when I heard that Marriott Manila was holding a lobster buffet every Monday, I just had to go have a look. Of course I had to bring my Mother too or she might disown me. Haha.
Soon as we got inside M Cafe, this was the first thing we saw. Now I would have been overly excited save for the fact that I have never ever gotten one and I didn't get one this time around too. Sad.
This Claw Machine is yet again a creative touch that Marriott pulls-off for an interactive, fun dining experience. Each guest will be given a token to play the Claw Machine with a goal to capture a lobster stuffed toy, of which you can bring home. Another prize in store for catching one is a special platter of 400 grams of lobsters.
So since this was a lobster buffet, there was a bunch of lobsters all over the place and they were cooked in many different ways. Baked, butter and garlic, chili and garlic, stuffed, cheesy, and fried.
They specifically use Canadian lobsters that are known for its fairly sweet and tender quality catering discerning tastes and are flexible for any cooking style. And if you are quite new to lobster indulgence, trust their chef recommended specialty dishes like the Lobster Thermidor, a French classic that has a creamy stuffing mixture of its meat and cheese. For a highly flavorful dish, have the Garlic Lobster flambéed in white wine. Or go simple having it grilled with lemon accent for a wonderfully natural flavor. Here's a photo of us before we got our mouths full.
This fancy delicacy is unlimited only on Mondays starting May until August. What makes this an absolute treat is that it’s available both on lunch and dinner for Php 1,950 only – on top of the already incalculable array of international cuisines. Now that's a Monday worth waking up to.
