CULTURAL POTPOURRI| That Valentine Feeling at Seda’s Misto

HOW DO you best express your love on Valentine’s Day?  Let Seda show you the impressive way this coming February 12-14, 2016.  Dubbed as “Music and Poetry Nights,” Seda’s suave GM Kennedy “Ken” V. Kapulong promises to offer the best Valentine feeling in this part of the world to all the urban lifestyle hotel’s highly valued clients.

     “We had a terrific Valentine’s Day celebration in 2015.  Our guests, from young lovers to family men with wife and kids in tow, came in droves which truly surprised us.  This year, we are hoping to duplicate the same feat but with much better offerings to keep everybody happy and in love,” explained GM Ken as he added, “|We aim to provide an exquisite and romantic three-course dinner complete with wine pairing to make it a memorable night of love.  Not to mention the poetry readings from Davao literary figures plus beautiful music from a four-string quartet for more inspirational love.”

     The Misto kitchen and Seda F&B teams led by the young and talented Sous Chef Giovanna “Bang” Flores and the personable F&B Manager Oliver Evangelista are ever ready in planning and creating an indulging menu from appetizers to desserts.  The course starts with a truly flavourful soup of Morchella, Porcini, fresh mushrooms, truffle oil, and aragula paired with a glass of Robert Mondavi Woodbridge Chardonnay.  For the main course, the team offers Angus beef braised in Bordeaux red wine; creamy mashed potatoes with herbs, haricot vert, asparagus and carrots; pan-seared succulent Atlantic scallops with a touch of white wine and French butter, pumpkin and green peas pesto puree, watercress and edible flowers recommended to be savoured with a glass of Robert Mondavi Woodbridge Merlot.  For heavenly dessert, chef Bang will entice you with Seda Abreeza’s specialty: a Red Velvet White Chocolate Cheesecake along with French macaroons and Ferrera Rocher chocolates which you heartily take with a glass of African sweet wine.

     Misto will also get a makeover on the special days as it gets decorated with classic and vintage ornaments taking inspiration from books and movies of the good ole days.

     “Make your Valentine’s Day more memorable by spending time with your loved ones in style and comfort by availing of our special Valentine room packages offered from February 10-15.  Oh yes, you get a special Valentine’s present as you book an overnight room accommodation which include a daily buffet breakfast for two persons, a complimentary bottle of wine, free use of the pool and the gym, among others,” enticed Seda Communications Officer Faith Marie Dimaano.
