Sometimes it's the art in food that teases the palate. Resorts World Manila's Epic Summer celebrations featured Megaworld Lifestyle Mall's Gourmet Masterpieces, art-inspired dishes created by renowned chefs last April 18, 2013 at Newport Mall Plaza. In partnership with the Asian Food Channel, Megaworld Lifestyle Malls brought selected dining outlets from participating malls, Resorts World Manila, Eastwood City, Venice Piazza, Burgos Circle at Forbestown Center and Lucky Chinatown Mall to create Gourmet art-inspired dishes on exhibit for the whole month of April until May 2013. Restos include New Orleans Restaurant, Cafe Maxims, Impressions, Passion and Ginzadon as well as Newport Mall's Crisostomo.
We've tasted all the dishes from the buffet and realized that we have to leave room for the art-inspired dishes from the exhibit. I could barely remember the specific names of the dishes but it was hard to forget the Native Delicacies because of the way they presented it using the Philippine Flag. Although Impressions' Foie Gras won with the highest number of votes among the press, the feast of the senses filled the air with more people wanting to have a nibble of every dish. The event hosted by Ms. Issa Litton also had a grand fashion show to showcase the art that inspired the dishes in Gourmet Masterpieces.
Food and art enthusiasts will definitely awe at the dishes and the colors at every dish in the exhibit. I really liked the gowns created by Ginzadon and Impressions. Renowned chefs Michael Lopez from Cafe Maxims, Cyrille Soenen from Impressions, David Chu Wai Fung from Passion and Antonio Ablay from Ginzadon along with other chefs conceptualized the limited edition summer dishes. They were looking so cute and adorable taking a bow after the grand parade of chefs at the latter part of the evening. I'd probably get some of those double decker cakes again from Cafe Maxims or enjoy the Foie Gras by Impressions.
Aside from Gourmet Masterpieces, Megaworld Lifestyle Malls will also have a concert dubbed, "Epic Summer's Sundown Sounds" featuring the country's biggest bands such as Sandwich, Up Dharma Down, Franco, Amistad, Itchyworms, Moonstar 88, Join the Club, The Dawn, Spongecola, Save Me Hollywood, Tanya Markova and Indio at Newport Mall Plaza until April 30, 2013. Nothing really compares to Megaworld Lifestyle Malls' Resorts World Manila. It's a great way to enjoy procastinating this summer and teach your kids about food and art available until May 2013 only.
