Magical Malaysia at Heat! An Asean Food Festival - Edsa Shangri-La Manila

Land of great spices, exotic dishes and exquisite flavors, that is what Malaysia is all about!  Heat at Edsa Shangri-La Hotel Manila, celebrates the Asean Food Festival with Magical Malaysia!

Malaysia is such a wonder to visit, with so many sights and sounds to enjoy, this dragon economy boasts of their great culture and good food to boot, but still maintains to be the melting pot of great Asian food finds.  

Heat brings in Executive Chef Christopher Chai, from Ipoh, Malaysia with a vast cooking experience in Singapore, Indonesia and Hong Kong, whips up Malaysia's favorite dishes for you and me.


Let's start of with Papaya Salad, refreshing and healthy, of course there are tons of veggies in it!  A great way to start up your appetite.


Gado-Gado, also known as Lotek, is an Indonesian salad with boiled fresh veggies with peanut sauce and hard boiled eggs, you may consider this as an appetizer, but do you know for a fact that in Indonesia, Gado-Gado is also served as a main dish.  I love how fresh the veggies were, topped with flavorful peanut sauce, and the peanut is totally awesome!


Vegetable Spring Rolls, I love how crisp fried they were, much like our local version of the fried lumpia, dip it in white vinegar on chili and onions, makes an excellent add on to this Asean Food Festival.


Hot and Sour Soup, a favorite soup dish not just in Malaysia, but almost everywhere in Asia, where Chinese people have lived food loving lives.  Not too sour, not too hot, if you prefer hot, you can always request for additional chili to put in.

Pair your Hot and Soup with a newly crisp fotu with a choice of 3 Chinese sauces


One of my favorites that day, Lapu-lapu Miso, this is by far one of the best dishes I have had. Fresh catch Lapu-lapu made this dish sweeter and more flavorful
Crab Fat Rice, need I say more?

Beef Rendang, beefy goodness in a bowl.  I love their Beef Randang, a perfect blend with bowls of rice.


Hokkien Mee, or Fried Noodles, somehow like our Pancit Canton, but with thicker soba noodles blended in with glass noodles, tossed in seafood and ta-da!


Finish our Asean Food Festival with a dessert combination of Black Glutinous Rice pudding, Taro Sago and Leche Flan, don't forget the center pillar, it's made of chocolate...
