10 Favorites @MadridFusionMNL’s “ALMUSAL” Theme Regional Lunch (Day 2)

Regional Lunch "Alumsal" @MadridFusionMNL

The Regional Lunches at Madrid Fusion Manila presents the finest dish and produce the country has to offer from the Main Islands Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. Aside from the buffet of local specialty by different local restaurants, the main highlight was the unique themed dishes prepared by Top Filipino chefs.

Day Two’s theme “Almusal” features reinterpretations of our favorite Pinoy morning food. We love how they added a spin on one of the most important meals of the day. 

The Regional Lunches of Madrid Fusión Manila 2016 is sponsored by the Department of Agriculture and the Day 2 lunch is curated by JJ Yulo. 

Here are our Top 10 favorites on the Day 2 Lunch at Madrid Fusion Manila …

1. Tapa, Egg Yolk Cream, Rice Cracker By Chef Margarita Fores (Cibo, Grace Park, Lusso, Alta)

2. Hot Chocolate Specials by Risa Chocolates

The drink highlights the notes of their south cotabato beans. It is made of 100% chocolate bean mixed with a little sugar, we love how you can playfully get a chocolate spoon and melt it in the hot choco instead of sweetening with sugar. And instead of marshmallow they used quesong puti and spices for toppers.

Morcon with a scotch egg inspired twist.

The meat for the morcon is a native black pig sourced from Bukidnon. To have that very rich and dense yolk they chose duck eggs sourced from Pateros. The dish is Bacolod inspired with its dew infused with tanglad which is highly used in the cuisine.

Craft Beer by Pedro Brewcrafters

Pedro is a craft beer brewed in san Pedro Laguna, hence the name Pedro. They have three kinds of beer but my favorite would be the Elementary English Ale for that full flavor.

The Summer Wheat Ale is on the sweeter note, being light and fruity. A good entry level for those who are starting out with craft beer.

Procrastination Pale Ale is an american style craft beer it is very fragrant and floral with bitterness in the end. Very typical for an American Pale ale.

The Elementary English Ale is basically a British style pale ale, it is roasted has chocolate & caramel notes very light bitterness but full of flavor.

Magnum Opus Coffee by Jonathan Choi

Philippinized coffee concoctions.

Painit is a filipino mocha using Kalsada coffee from benguet called mang Jose named after the farmer who grew it. It is made of Malagos chocolate where they turned it into a ganache, using 65% single origin chocolate and local milk. It’s structured like a mocha but with using all local ingredients.

Palamig it’s a take on sago gulaman where they used cold brew coffee milk and cold brew coffee jelly.
