I think I’m starting a new tradition. A couple of years ago, I was also invited to taste the delicious and fresh Vietnamese foray over at Crimson Hotel in Filinvest City. I absolutely love Vietnamese food!! This was an easy invite to say yes to!

In celebration of Vietnam’s Independence Day this September, Crimson Hotel Filinvest City, Manila takes you to a gastronomic adventure featuring the diverse cuisine from the Land of the Dragon People.
Vietnamese cuisine offers a numerous combination of flavors, with cultural influences from different countries such as France, China, and India. In the Philippines, this cuisine is already gaining popularity where pho noodles and Bahn mi hit the Filipino palate.
Foodies who crave for authentic Vietnamese dishes need not look further as the Crimson Hotel in Alabang features the Taste of Vietnam in their buffet spread at Café Eight restaurant from August 31 to September 7, 2018.
