Savoring Filipino Food at Luzviminda6 - Timeless Flavors at F1 Hotel Manila

Got to check out F All-Day Dining on their 6th Filipino food festival called Luzviminda 6 - Timeless Flavors that happened last June 7, 2018 inside F1 Hotel Manila. It was also my first time visiting F1 Hotel Manila so I did not know what to expect. After parking at the basement of the hotel, we headed straight to the elevator and we were warmly greeted by the hotel assistant and smiled at us. First impression lasts and were glad that we were instantly greeted by the warm hospitality of the hotel. We also happened to bump into Chef Boy Logro and he opened with a joke as we happily head on to event.

We proceeded to the program of the Luzviminda 6 at the F All-Day Dining. An entertaining cultural dance started the program and enjoyed the historical journey of dance represented in the islands of Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.

We then moved to the ribbon cutting ceremony with special guests Roberto Francisco, Chairman of Hotel and Restaurant Chef’s Association of the Philippines; Sharwin Tee, host of Curiosity Got Chef; and award winning TV and movie actress Jacyln Jose. Also present were Department of Tourism NCR Director Cynthia Lazo, Attorney Jeff Martinez and F1 Hotel Manila’s Hotel Director Cindy Brual. Another performance highlighting the Filipino culture by the Philippine Barangay Folk Dancers that made the night lively and happy.

Of course the highlight of the night, the Filipino food led by F1 Hotel’s executive chef, Angelo “Chubby” Timban, who, together with guest chefs, AJ Reyes and Zhe Jacinto, created a memorable feast for the guests. Luzviminda is the culmination of our chefs’ talents and collaboration, bringing their skills and personal recipes to the fore to create the kind of authentic Filipino cuisine that would set your palate on a journey around the Philippines. Each chef have their own highlighted dishes during the festivity. Each chef exhibited their own highlight dishes; Chef Chubby’s delightful centerpieces were Insarabasab and Kalabasa Flan from Luzon; other regional dishes were Bulcachong and Pocherong Baka ni Tatay Ipeng in which dishes supplemented Chef Chubby’s flexibility in both creation and presentation of his expertise. Meanwhile, Vizayas was showcased with Chef AJ’s appetizing Kinilaw na Lobster and Sinuglaw while also serving Adlai and Smoked Corn Salad and Tamales Blanca that stemmed from various regions of the country where Chef AJ familiarized himself with to craft such delectable recipes. And of course, the feast wouldn’t be as satisfying without Mindanao’s Chicken Piyanggang and Beef Korma by Chef Zhe and her genuine Grilled Bicol Express and Raspberry Piaya that she effectively developed through diverse culinary aspects that can only be found in our country’s rich and beloved customs.

We enjoyed what Luzviminda 6 offerred us which is the delicious Filipino food specialties of the 3 top chefs combined with the great service from our table. For me, all the food were great but the Kalabasa Flan took the prize for me as the best Filipino dessert at Luzviminda 6 food spread.

Kalabasa Flan! Definitely a must try!

Also documented the food through my youtube channel and will post it soon!
