Taste of the Philippines

Roxburgh Park residents were treated to the culinary delights of the Philippines when Pop Up Restaurant ‘Boracay’ opened for lunch service today.

Named after a small island on the west coast of the Philippines, Boracay is known for its palm trees, resorts, beaches and bars.

The team helped get everyone feeling the Boracay vibe by dressing in traditional costume and putting on an impromptu performance of Traditional Filipino songs.

Said General Manager, Darinka Rozanic – our pop up restaurants are a very popular activity, our residents tell us that they love it each time we create a new destination for them to visit within our home.  Everyone gets onboard with the planning, preparation and theming for the pop up restaurant event.  It’s a great bonding experience and a magical way to share and experience the diverse culture of our residents and team.

Chef Solomon collaborated with Filipino staff members prepared an authentic menu of

Entree – Chicken and Pineapple Kebabs

Mains – Beef Coconut Curry and Rice

Dessert – Caramel and Banana Lumpia (crepes)

Resident Eileen S said “I loved the Filipino pop up restaurant and watching the staff dance”

Staff member Rose Goyena said “I had so much fun singing, dancing, eating and especially mixing socially with our residents, showing them our culture. I am looking forward to doing it all again on the 23rd

Staff member Amalia Manuel said “It was great, we had the opportunity to show and share our culture with residents and our colleagues. It was especially good to see our residents enjoying and engaging with our music and dancing. We all had so much fun.”

‘Boracay’ will be popping up again in two weeks’ time on the 23rd October for Moran Roxburgh Park residents, family and friends.
