(SPOT.ph) Take a trip to five key cities in the US with Oakroom’s American Regional Food and Wine Festival which runs until November 27.
Taste the flavors of Boston, Miami, Chicago, Dallas, and San Francisco and pair their good ol’ American food with premium wines by Robert Mondavi. Start off your food trip with mouthwatering appetizers like the creamy Lobster Roll Sandwich (P495) from Boston which combines fresh lobster meat with celery, zesty lemon juice, and mayonnaise in a soft bun; the Dallas-style Shrimp Tostadas (P450) features Tex-Mex marinated shrimps in fried crunchy corn tortilla; and the San Francisco Spinach Quesadillas (P375)-spinach, caramelized walnuts, and cheddar cheese in whole-wheat tortillas.
For entrées, go for the Grilled Flank steak with Cristiano y Moro and Salsa Cruda (P695) from the sunny city of Miami which showcases US beef Angus served with black beans, rice, and salsa Verde. You can also try the Dallas dish Grilled Salmon with Roasted Corn and Jalapeno Salsa (P675) served with country wedge potatoes.
Cap off your hearty meal with the Dallas dessert, Tres Leches (P250), a light sponge cake soaked in three kinds of milk, or the San Francisco Mochi Ice Cream (P295) with hot chocolate dip.
