Barrio Fiesta Themed Dinner at Allegro Restaurant and Bar
|Cebu Lechon (Roasted Pork)|
On our last night at Maribago Bluewater, we had dinner again at the Allegro, but this time, it is a themed dinner called "Barrio Fiesta". A fiesta or a feast is a tradition that usually involves street dancing, parade and food festivities which Filipinos inherited from the Spaniards. Usually, fiestas are of religious nature. It is a Filipiniana way of partying.
The Barrio Fiesta themed dinner at Allegro includes no other than the famous Cebu Lechon.
Lechon in Cebu is so tasty and tender. It is the best lechon I have tasted so far. It does not have "sarsa" or sauce because the meat itself is generously seasoned with herbs and spices. If you wish to bring some home, you can go to CNT Lechon near SM Cebu. They will pack it in such a way that it will be allowed aboard the plane.
Bibingka (rice cake) is made of rice flour, red and white eggs, butter and sugar. It is usually available during the yuletide season or during Simbang Gabi. Allegro's bibingka are in bite-sizes.
The buffet also includes yema or candies made of caramelized condensed milk.
They also have sorbetes or home-made ice cream (ube, keso and chocolate flavor). You can also request for halo-halo (caramelized fruits with crushed ice, ube, leche flan and milk).
The themed dinner also includes a cultural show showcasing Filipino songs and folk dances.
