French National Day Specials at Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila


C’est Trop Bon!!, it means delicious in French, it’s the word that we learned for this month and thanks to Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila for introducing to us an another gastronomical experience featuring their French National Day Specials in observance of a French celebration called “Bastille Day”.

The new set of French food that are served at Sprial Manila’s European atelier will be available from the entire month of July 2016.

So if you want to try French cuisine in a French brand hotel, then you should be here at Sofitel and explore the taste without going to France.

European atelier in a busy state because of the French National Day Specials.
All of the French food are served here.


Also highlighted for this one month food special event, Sofitel’s L’Epicerie or the cheese room will feature 200+ kinds of cheese that was prepared by cheese masters and experts.


Sofitel invited a cheese expert, Colin Chandaras to have a special lunch and dinner event during these schedules of Jul\y 6-10, 2016

Colin is trained by a master cheesemaker, Pascal Beillevaire, who is from the world renowed cheese maker for 30 years, Fromage Beillavaire.

Here are the French food specials at Spiral Manila


Chicken supreme in foie gras sauce, trompette mushrooms


Duck confit with lentilles


Beef tartare


Petit pois a ala Francaise


Pissaladiere (caramelized onion and anchovy)



-- this is my fave!!!


Escargot a la bourguignonne

-- the most delicious escargot that I tasted in my life!!
truly a C’est Trop bon!




If there’s cheese, the best to pair it is with a good fine French wine



Will edit this – I forgot what it was called, it’s a welcome wine drink.


I also tasted a cheese fondue.
This is now my favorite. People should try this instead of chocolates. This was shown to us in a short cooking class with Sofitel’s executive chef. Read below the schedule if you are interested to be part of the cooking class this July 7.
