Experience a variety of new flavors and new dishes, each one created to complete your experience at Hotel Rembrandt...
Located at the heart of Quezon City, Hotel Rembrandt weaves old world luxury with modern amenities in a seamless blend for a memorable experience. And now, new flavors, and new dishes, await your next visit to Hotel Rembrandt.
Hotel Rembrandt's new menu includes a wide range of creative yet classic dishes, from appetizers to mains and desserts, bringing a whole new world of diverse flavors to the heart of Quezon City. And that evening, we sampled the new menu in an exclusive tasting event..
In an exclusive preview of the hotel's new menu, guests were invited to sample the wide selection of new dishes with an elegant tasting menu featuring small portions of the signature items. Chef Marie Jo Camarista, Consultant Chef to the AHMGI Group which owns and manages Baguio's Le Monet Hotel, Vigan's Hotel Luna, Vitalis Resort and Spa and Staylite Hotel in Ilocos Sur, led Hotel Rembrandt's culinary team in preparing and serving the hotel's new menu. The new menu will be part of the wide selection of dishes offered at The Lobby (for more on The Lobby at Hotel Rembrandt, see my previous post here).
Before the formal tasting of Hotel Rembrandt's new menu, guests were invited to The Malt Room, located at the hotel's basement, for a round of cocktails. Special cocktails by Cointreau, the Cointreau Fizz and the Cointreaupolitan (L) were served, including round after round of Miller Genuine Draft (R).
After cocktails at The Malt Room, guests were then led to the hotel's Grand Ballroom for the formal tasting of the new menu, and served premium Single Malt Scotch Whisky (L), The Singleton 12 Year Old, along with a selection of fine wines from wine importer and distributor Titania Wines (R).
Our tasting experience with Hotel Rembrandt's new menu began with Chef Marie Jo Camarista's elegant Hors d' Oeuvres, a sampler featuring bite-sized versions of her signature Artichoke & Funghi Pizza, Calamari, and Prosciutto & Arugula Pizza, paired with a glass of Robert Skalli Chardonnay. Each bite-sized piece delivered rich and bold flavors, with even more flavorful dishes yet to be served...
Chef Marie Jo Camarista's elegantly plated Shrimp Scampi is served next, draped in rich crab fat and served on a stone slate. The briny sweetness of the plump prawn is followed by the richness of the crab fat to complete the flavors, complemented by a glass of Spanish wine, Vina Albali Airen with its fruity notes. This one's a personal favorite.
More seafood starters were then served, including the Salmon Ceviche (L), with the creamy and buttery flavors of the fresh salmon contrasting with the sour and tart notes of the ceviche dressing, paired with Mapu Sauvignon Blanc; and the Tuna Tartare (R), with its fresh and clean flavors, paired with Petit Fuime Pouilly-Fume.
For the mains, Chef Marie Jo Camarista served her comforting Spaghetti and Meatballs (L) paired with Mapu Cabernet Sauvignon Red and the savory Stuffed Roasted Chicken (R) paired with Gran Tierra Temperanillo. Stuffed with nutty mushrooms, the tender roasted chicken roulade is another favorite.
A medley of flavors arrived next, with a variety of bite-sized samplers of signature mains, including the (clockwise from top right) Shrimp Thermidor paired with Three Wishes Chardonnay, Fish and Chips served with Miller Genuine Draft, and Burger Sliders paired with Three Wishes Merlot. The rich flavors from the sampler portions give you an idea of what to expect from the regular servings of the new dishes.
A duo of pasta dishes plus another seafood dish were then served, with Pan-Seared Tuna with Balsamic Glaze and a hearty Seafood Pasta (L) plated in one dish, and the Shrimp Scampi Linguine (R), comforting dishes with rich and classic flavors.
The exclusive tasting ended with Chef Marie Jo Camarista's Cheese Platter, featuring the Artichoke & Sun-Dried Tomato, Spicy Mozzarella Stick, and Grilled Cheese Sandwich paired with a glass of Piccini Toscana Blanco with its fruity and citrus notes. New flavors, new dishes, just a sampling of what you can expect at Hotel Rembrandt on your next visit. And you can expect even more new dishes, as the new menu is served at The Lobby of Hotel Rembrandt. The Lobby is open from 6am to 1am, indulge in The Lobby's daily breakfast buffet, ala carte choices, and classic dishes with its merienda and dinner buffet (for more on Hotel Rembrandt's Merienda Buffet, check out my previous post here, and for their sumptuous Dinner Buffet, see my earlier post here).
