Ocean's Harvest at M Cafe, Marriott Hotel Manila

It takes a gourmet treat at Marriott Cafe to rejuvenate this blog. How could I resist a dinner with lots of seafood, which I can have cooked my way?

Chefs standing by and happy to cook seafood dish your way.

I grew up from the country's seafood capital, Iloilo. Fresh seafood was an everyday fare and they didn't come expensive, too. I know how seafood dishes should taste like, even if they're prepared simply.

That is the come on for Marriott Cafe's Ocean's Harvest. For only P2,300, I can have seafood to my heart's content. Since I could request the chef how my shrimp or scallops, fish or even the lobster should be cooked, I opted to go simple. I ordered a pampano with only the soy sauce and herbs. It didn't disappoint. The fish was tender and fresh, and it brought me back to my mother's kitchen in Anilao, Iloilo.

There is more than the pampano for your choices. The Ocean Surf Market Style Buffet Menu includes fresh salmon, tuna loin, local tanigue, talakitok, lapu-lapu, maya-maya, shellfish, jumbo prawns, half shell local scallop, local clams, jumbo squid, suahe shrimps, blue marlin, and local gindara. You can also have your fill of slippers lobsters, local blue sea crab, curacha crab, prawns, mussels, and white shells.

 Just look at all of this at your disposal! 

Here is my other plate of assorted grilled seafood.
