Sydney's Shangri-La Hotel is doing something a little different to the usual super swish accommodation thing – they're hosting the annual Philippines Food Festival at Café Mix, with buffet lunch and dinner events happening in September.

The hotel is bringing in guest chefs to expand your palates (and bellies). On the foodie line-up is Rico Celdo Venzon, Athena Blanche Tan Oropesa and Erma Balaquiao Palanca from the Shangri-La Hotel in Manila. The food featured will showcase a cuisine that draws inspiration from its tropical setting, and will definitely include some classic national dishes.

Head over for tasty treats like Adobong Manok (chicken cooked in soy, vinegar and garlic), Lechon Kawali Sisig (stir-fried crispy pork) and Kare-Kareng Buntot ng Baka (stewed oxtail in peanut sauce). Keen for dessert? Try Halo-Halo (fruits with shaved ice and toppings) or Turon – a banana and jackfruit springroll. You'll be saying "napakasaráp nitó" (it is delicious) in no time.

The festival will run from September 16th-23rd and the buffet lunch will be available between noon and 2:30pm at $57 pp, or dinner from 6-10pm at $82 pp. To book yourself in for the buffet, call (03) 9250 6000 or go to the Shangri-La website.
