Novotel Manila's Chinese New Year Offerings for 2017

Welcome the Year of the Fire Rooster with abundance, good health, and prosperity at Novotel Manila Araneta Center. From January 27 to 29, the premier 4-star hotel situated at the heart of Quezon City will be having special Chinese New Year offers in celebration of this annual tradition. From lauriat menus meant to be shared with family to an exciting staycation package, Novotel Manila is keen at providing guests who want to start the new lunar year right with delicious, auspicious, and affordable options.

Chef Alan Meng—Novotel’s resident Chinese chef—has especially prepared 3 Chinese lauriat menus that families would surely enjoy. For as low as PhP13,999++ (good for 10 persons), diners can indulge in authentic Chinese dishes from the Lucky, Fortune, and Prosperity menus. We were able to try the Fortune Set (PhP18,888++), which features of 13 dishes from different parts of China.

We started with some appetizers like the Assorted Chinese Cold Cuts platter, consisting of Hainanese chicken, soy chicken, and asado; the Sweet and Sour Squid with Garlic Fungus and Cucumber Salad; a selection of 4 types of dim sum; and the Jilin Black Chicken Ginseng Soup—which was something I particularly enjoyed. These were followed by meat and seafood creations like Xinjiang Spicy Stewed Chicken, Taiwanese Stir-fried Beef with Sha Cha Sauce, Dalian-Style Stir-fried Mixed Seafood, and the delicious Steamed Grouper in a light soy sauce.

Cantonese Wok Fried Noodles are included—and would delight noodle-lovers for sure—and for rice, Chef Alan has thrown in an extra treat with some wagyu beef. Save some space for desserts as you would love to partake of the special Chinese New Year’s Tikoy executed and presented like a turon, as well as the addicting Almond Lychee. Sweet Rice Balls in rice wine, Mango Sago, and assorted fresh fruits are also served.

Combine your dining festivities with Novotel Manila’s affordable Chinese New Year staycation package: for PhP6,888, you can stay in a Superior Room (2 adults and 2 kids below 15 years old) and enjoy a delicious buffet breakfast at the Food Exchange. In addition, you get to avail as well of a special Chinese buffet dinner for two as part of this special promotion.

Spend this weekend only with good vibes and attract luck and prosperity for the incoming Year of the Fire Rooster. Call +632-990-7888 to reserve, or email
