The trend of high-quality beef has definitely made its rounds in the Manila foodie circuit. New and specialty restaurants serving every imaginable variation of the indispensable meat have refined our palates and turned us into even tougher critics when it comes to beef cuts, doneness, marbling, and countless other criteria. While you might be familiar with Angus and Wagyu, however, we’re introducing your tastebuds to an unexpected brand of beef and steak that’s bound to be your next big fave!
Slab upon slab of glorious beef!
A beautiful, yummy mess!
So, what does it take to produce awesome-tasting beef anyway? A little background study revealed that for beef to taste and marble as awesome as it does, it needs a combination of clean water and air, wide open spaces to roam freely, lots of grass to feed on, and the right climate. It just so happens that Canada possesses all these conditions, making it an ideal spot to raise quality cattle, and in turn, produce amazing beef.
Enter the Canadian Beef Advantage, an endeavour of New World Makati Hotel in partnership with Canada Beef International Institute and supported by the Canadian Embassy. For the entire month of September, get to taste the difference of Canadian Beef for yourself as New World Makati presents exquisite dishes featuring the world-class beef in their restaurants.
Jasmine, New World Makati’s traditional Chinese restaurant, will be serving a special à la carte menu that puts the spotlight on classic Chinese dishes, enhanced with quality Canadian Beef Tenderloin. The menu will include Diced Beef Tenderloin with Cashew Nuts, Wok-Fried Beef Tenderloin and Coriander Tips, and Black Pepper Beef Tenderloin on rice. Their Café 1228 buffet will also be serving Canadian Beef dishes; must-try’s include the Whole House Cured Corned Beef and the aged Barley-Fed Beef with roasted vegetables, baked potatoes and yorkshire pudding. Buffet rates start at PHP1,999 for lunch on weekdays, PHP2,299 per person for lunch on weekends, and and PHP 2,399 for dinner per person daily.
