Even after we made our final payment for Discovery Shores, we still managed to get a food tasting session 5 days before our wedding day. Thanks to Mitel Bustamante (Sales Executive) & Gel Sunga "(Events Coordinator) of Discovery Shores Boracay.
Tommee and I made sure not to eat hours before our food tasting. We wanted to be good and hungry since we knew we were going to be served a lot of food considering we're having a buffet dinner for our wedding reception.
Amanda (our awesome coordinator) joined us during the early parts to have a final rundown of the details of the wedding.
(L to R: Gel Sunga, Amanda Tirol & Suyen)
First, we were served "Aklan Red Snapper 'Crudo' with Lemon, Rosemary & Capers". I actually completely forgot to take a picture of it but if you look closely at this pic, it's the one served in tiny glass "sardine-like cans" (at the far left side of the pic between Gel & Amanda)
Here's Tommee enjoying (from left to right) "Orange-Ginger shrimp Ceviche, Crab & Broccoli Salad, and (this one is hidden behind the freshly squeezed orange juice) Chilled Asian Noodles".
All of them are very tasty. I personally liked the Crab & Broccoli salad the best out of the 3 since I found the Chilled Asian noodles to be a tad spicy.
Pictured here is Tommee and Gel Sunga. She's the events coordinator for Discovery Shores Boracay, and we are very grateful to have her. She's really very nice and super accommodating. She's always eager to help and is a joy to converse with.
For our main course, we were served "Pork Ribs, Thai Seafood Curry, Nut-Crusted Fish Fillets, and Morrocan Lamb Ribs". Out of all of them, my favorite was the Lamb ribs. They were so tender and had just the right amount of flavor. I think we finished those off (haha). Not pictured: Braised Chicken with Shiitakes and Snap Peas.
I didn't eat the Thai Seafood curry because I am not a fan of spicy food, but Tommee says that it was very delicious and he's sure our families will love it. The Nut-Crusted Fish was also very good, the crunchy outside and soft inside was a great contrast.
In this picture, you can see the Praline Caramel Panna Cotta and Palitaw (just one of the few Filipino kakanins to be served). I would have eaten more if I wasn't so full (thanks to the lamb ribs). The Panna Cotta had just the right amount of sweetness and wasn't very overwhelming. The shot glass serving was just the right serving size.
This is the famous Discovery Signature Cake. A chocolate cake with white chocolate and cherry topping. I saved the top part for last. hehe. Tommee approves of this (he is the ultimate chocolate lover).
All in all, Tommee can describe our food tasting in one word - "PANALO!" (winner!)
We definitely made the right choice for our reception/caterer. Discovery Shores can do no wrong in our eyes. hehe
We heart Discovery Shores Boracay!
