Celebrate Philippine-Korean Friendship Week at Aristocrat Restaurant with its special “exchange dishes” that will tantalize your taste buds with flavors from both Korea and the Philippines. Philippine-Korean Friendship Day, which is remembered every March 3, actually started with the issuance of Presidential Proclamation No. 1495 by Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo. She declared 2009 as Philippine-Korean Friendship Year and March 3 as Philippine-Korean Friendship Day. Prior to this, the Philippines has already shared 60 years of diplomatic ties with Korea.
Aristocrat remembers this event with offerings from both the Philippines and Korea in their menu. Of course, their Philippine dish is the signature Aristocrat Chicken Barbecue with Java Rice, Java Sauce, and Atchara. This yummy dish has been a favorite throughout the years by Filipinos because of the sweet harmony between the juicy barbecued chicken and the nutty goodness of its secret sauce. Served with rich Java rice and with the pickled Atchara, it makes the perfect combination to satisfy any craving.
As for the Korean dish, Aristocrat has included a Korean Beef Barbecue meal in its menu. This tasty treat includes soft and tender Korean beef cooked in barbecue sauce topped with a dash of sesame seeds. Enjoy this with Korean side dishes including fresh bean sprouts, cucumber salad, and of course, fermented kimchi. This dish will only be available from March 3 to 11 so I suggest you visit one of Aristocrat’s 9 branches in Roxas Boulevard, Malate; Jupiter, Makati; SM Mall of Asia; The Block, SM North EDSA; SM San Lazaro; Robinsons’ Place Manila; SM Manila; Subic Bay; and San Pablo, Laguna.
