Care for Lunch?

I had a seminar today sponsored by the World Bank at Discovery Suites in Ortigas.  It was one of the most informative seminars I’ve been to and I can’t wait for the go signal to talk about it.

Anyway, Discovery was nice, but the carpets looked frayed and old. Don’t even get me started with the bathroom.  The outside was pretty, all zen and shit, but the cubicles?  Very reminiscent of my high school bathroom, 4×7 in size, narrow and very un-suite-like.  Ugh.

Good thing the food made up for it.

This is the carrot cream soup.  It had a taste of ginger, semi-sweet, and a hint of spring onions and garlic.  It’s surprisingly really good, but it doesn’t look like it.  It could’ve used some presentation.  Honestly, it looked like kiddie barf.  Hahahaha.

L-R:  Homemade rolls, tuna and capers tossed in EVOO, broccoli and crabstick with light Japanese mayo, chilled seafood salad on mussel, fish in tausi sauce, lemon chicken, beef stroganoff

This is a very good serving.  I had a little bit of the ratatouille on the side and the zucchini was perfect — crunchy with a good kick of tomato.  For snacks, they had the corned beef crepe (I believe they made their own corned beef) topped with marinara sauce.  All.  Oh.   So.  Good.

It’s days like these that make me love my job. :)
