The Cochinillo de Cervesa Negra, a succulent, malty, and aromatically flavored suckling roasted pork dish that is prominently served in most Filipino feasts, is one of the must-try dishes and the main attraction in the Western Visayas Lunch and Dinner buffet at the Manila Hotel Café Ilang-Ilang. This specially prepared by Chef Margarita Forés, who is from Negros Occidental.

Ox tripe, smoked sausage, beans, and bell peppers are slow-cooked in tomato sauce and seasonings to make the hearty stew Callos. 


A lovely duck that was cooked to perfection, with mango slices battered in the duck fat. 



 With tomato, soy sauce, vinegar, and sugar, the ox tongue was cooked until it was extremely soft. This dish is a fusion of Filipino and Spanish estofado.
