For those appetites looking for an adventure, Marriott Manila redefines fine dining to be an absolute thrill to the senses in its award-winning restaurant, Cru Steakhouse. Adding a spice of surprise to your typical fancy dinner is Cru’s Mystery Box, inspired by the cooking reality show, MasterChef. Because how to best excite your palates than not knowing what you will have, right?
As you sit to your tables, Cru’s own master chefs roam around with a huge crate made of kiln-dried mahogany wood and offer you the challenge. Inside it are raw and fresh ingredients that even the chef has no idea of. Marriott’s Executive Chef Meik Brammer randomly mixes up premium steak, seafood, vegetables and sauces to challenge his multi-awarded culinary team – trust their long list of accolades, they sure won’t disappoint. For Php 3,850 per person, your mystery box will turn to a 3-course dinner that could include an appetizer or soup, seafood dish, steak with side dishes or dessert.
This is an off-menu item that chefs can randomly offer to you. On your willingness to take on the challenge, then the mystery will be revealed. The chef will quickly collaborate with you on the magic that can be done from the mystery ingredients – they want to make sure it is made personal to your satisfaction. Before you know it, you are already savoring your appetizer after 10 minutes.
No further details can be disclosed from here on because selections change per mystery box and guest. Curious? Then, turn that penchant for something out-of-the-ordinary to an actual memorable experience. Aside from the satisfying flavors, be enriched by an exclusive chefs interaction and probably score kitchen tips and tricks.
