Breakfast at Casino Español de Manila with Mayor of Sabrosa, Portugal

On the invite of Philippine Online Chronicles and WikiPilipinas, our partner at The Filipina Images, BA and I went to Casino Español de Manila (the corner of Taft Avenue and T.M. Kalaw)  last Tuesday to have breakfast with Jose Manuel Carvalho Marques, who is attending the 6th International Tourism Forum for Parliamentarians and Local Authorities.

Breakfast comprised Ensaymada, Roast Beef, Baked Ham with Pineapple, Tortilla de Patatas Española, Fruit Cocktail and Coffee, Chocolate or Tea. The thick hot chocolate made the Spanish way was simply wonderful.

Mayor Marques has taken the opportunity of his visit to bring another Magellan to the country—Sabrosa’s new Fernão Magalhães wine (served with, you guessed it right—breaded lapu-lapu sticks), which was introduced this morning to the press at a breakfast at the Casino Español de Manila. The same combination will also be served at a diplomat’s dinner at the Casino Espanol on 26 October.

Present during the event was Don Jose Rodriguez, Director of Insituto Cervantes de Manila.

  2. hey dine!

    one thing i noticed though sa manila, why in the world do they chill ever red wines hahaha curious lang me! i love that white wine!

  3. Dear Reyna Elena,

    Red wine is supposed to be served and imbibed at room temperature. That temp in Europe or the western hemisphere is 75F. In Manila room temp is 90F to 95F. Hence red wine when served in Manila is a lot more enjoyable when chilled, either in a wine cooler or an ice bucket.
