Spiral Master Chef's Dad Favorite Dishes

Let's take a closer look at the dishes offered at the Father's Day Weekend Brunch.

Spiral's Culinary Artisans Talking about their Dad's Favorite Dishes

Chef Bryan Ortigosa, Filipino Food Master Chef will be offering  Sinuglaw. Sinuglaw is a combination of words of Sinugba (grilled) and Kinilaw (eaten raw) and it has been a memorable dish for Chef Bryan. During his childhood days, his father would take him to the market where they would buy and eat a whole fish and would grill half of the fish and would make 'kinilaw' the other half of the fish.

Chef Halim Ali Khan, Spiral's Indian Master Chef, will showcase an Indian dish that his father taught him to make. Cooking Sikandari Raan (Roast Lamb), the lamb leg should be marinated overnight and slow cooked a day then baked into an oven for that tender, easy to tear apart and fall off the bones lamb dish as his father instructed him. With 10 to 12 Indian spices partnered with Biryani rice soaked with lamb stock, it will be a juicy and flavorful pairing.

Chef Dennis Macaranas, a Thai Food Master Artisan, will add his twist to the Bangkok-style beef tenderloin adding 5 aromatic Thai spices for that distinct tangy and extra flavor. He was inspired to create this dish similar to bistek (beef steak) that has been their pulutan (snacks when drinking alcoholic beverages) and bonding time with his father as they drink together.

Chinese Master Chef Michael Tai shared his father's creation called Dragon Balls Lettuce. It is made up of seafood balls wrapped in lettuce and its his father's way of making him eat vegetables as a kid by disguising his favorite seafood in this dish.
