Indulge in your favorite Yuletide dishes at Guevarra's

10:42:00 PM

Christmas time is fast approaching with 68 days to go prior to one of the most celebrated occasions here in the Philippines. I can already imagine Christmas delicacies such as the Bibingka and Puto Bumbong being sold along the streets near the church to accommodate the attendees of the Misa de Gallo. Also, during Noche Buena, I try to be a chef for a day with the hopes of recreating my family's favorite Christmas dishes such as the Macaroni Salad, Spaghetti and Chicken although I'm not necessarily a great cook and sometimes my mom criticizes my creations. So when I heard about a restaurant offering a "Yuletide Menu", I was very interested to try it out. But what made me more excited to visit this restaurant is the fact that it is owned by celebrity chefs Roland and Jackie Laudico.

Located at 387 P. Guevarra St. corner Argonne St. Addition Hills San Juan, Chef Laudico's Guevarra's is built to reminisce a house built in the 1920's. It also has a spacious garden that is usually used as venue for outdoor weddings. Its staircase completes the look of a very elegant home and a perfect spot for OOTDs as well. 

It has been a popular venue for celebrations like Baptism, Birthdays, Weddings and even corporate gatherings and reunions that can accommodate up to 200 persons. But it's also open for small events since it has different areas that are separated by partitions. Visitors also get to appreciate art works and hanged plates with notes from celebrities and well-known individuals displayed all over the restaurant.

Chef Roland and Jackie Laudico partnered by the Seven Plates Inc. (Warren Sy, Patrick King, Felix Yu, Timothy Go, Victor Go, Raymond Co and Jeffrey Siy) are the people behind the delicious buffet line up that every customer has been enjoying for the last three years and this time, they've decided to create a menu especially for the Christmas season which is the "Yuletide Menu" that they will incorporate with the Guevarra's signature dishes.

Last September 29, 2016, Chef Laudico's Guevarra's opened its doors to the media as they launch their Yuletide Menu and I am very fortunate to be part of this event thanks to Ms. Michelle and Sir Ralph Huertas of Trendspotting Ads Consultancy Agency.

During the event, Chef Roland and Jackie Laudico had a cooking demonstration on how to create one of their specialties, the Embotido Lasagna Roll:

Next, they revealed the dishes included on their Yuletide Menu:

Beef Morcon
Their Beef Morcon composed of a rolled top round with Bacon, Spanish Chorizo, Carrots and Hard-boiled egg will literally melt in your mouth.

Christmas Chicken Liver Parfait 
You won't realize how many Crostini you've already eaten once you pair it with the rich and flavorful Liver Pate infused with Moscato.

Christmas Paella 
Be ready to gain a few pounds as you enjoy this rice dish with morsels of liempo, chicken and chorizo.

Fish Mayonesa
This colorful dish is actually a baked whole fish with Tartar dressing topped with diced red and green bell pepper, carrots and egg. If you love creamy fish just like me, this is something you should definitely try.

Embotido Lasagna Roll
Experience meat loaf wrapped with Lasagna sheets and topped with bechamel sauce. An unconventional way to enjoy your Embotido but will make you come back for more. 

Roast Turkey with Cornmeal Stuffing
A staple food of Westerners, this Roast Turkey is best served with Cranberry Sauce or Gravy.

Puto Bumbong
These Glutinous Rice delicacies are made especially for the Christmas Season. Both will truly remind you of those Christmas mornings where you enjoy munching on these snacks after the Misa De Gallo. 

Christmas Suman Fruitcake
Our favorite Suman with a twist topped with fruit preserves. A new way to enjoy this delicious Filipino delicacy.

Christmas Macaroni Salad
A Christmas celebration wouldn't be complete without the presence of a bowl full of creamy macaroni salad with gelatin cubes, raisins and dressing.

Classic Christmas Pudding
Get to taste the traditional Christmas Pudding which is made up baked bread cut-ups with a generous spread of glazed fruit preserves.

Of course, the all time Guevarra's favorites are also part of the buffet such as the Roast Angus Beef Belly, Bagnet, Kare-Kare, Shrimps and desserts like their Brigaderos and Frozen Brazo that customers will surely enjoy.

Besides tasting all these amazingly delicious buffet line up, what's even better is that every time you avail the Guevarra's Yuletide Menu, you automatically contribute a portion of the proceeds to benefit the Children's Joy Foundation which is a center that houses disadvantaged children in the country that Guevarra's has been supporting for the past 4 years. They also graced the event and they even serenaded the guests with fun and entertaining Christmas songs:

Before the program ended, a surprise performance was rendered by Chef Roland and Jackie Laudico, Seven Plates Inc partners and Guevarra's staff:
