Jannah Hotels & Resorts’ Halo Halo Restaurants to Host Superstar Chef JP Anglo’s True Taste of the Philippines
Dubai, UAE, March 2021: Celebrity chef JP Anglo will lead foodies on a culinary journey through the eclectic tastes and richly unique flavours of Filipino cuisine as he steps into the kitchen at Jannah Hotels & Resorts’ Halo Halo restaurants for the Halo Halo Food Festival at the end of this month and start of April.
Jannah Hotels & Resorts’ Halo Halo restaurant at the EDGE Creekside Hotel will host JP Anglo’s special foodie event from March 31 to April 3, while diners at the Halo Halo restaurant at Jannah Marina Hotel Apartments will be able to enjoy his cooking from April 7 to 10.
A special Halo Halo Food Festival four-course taster menu, priced at just AED 150, will begin with appetizers of chicken BBQ skewers served with spiced vinegar followed by tortang talong (eggplant) salad and a crispy sinigang dilis (baby anchovy) soup.
For the main course, diners can choose from crispy tadyang (beef ribs) served with a sweet soy sauce, grilled jumbo prawns with a coconut shrimp paste sauce or pancit negra (seafood noodles) complete with slivers of grilled squid. Guests can enjoy a super sweet grand finale with a caramelised pie that comes with mango filling.
One of the Philippines’ most celebrated and up-and-coming young chefs, JP Anglo is a successful restaurauter and entrepreneur who has championed the food of his home country around the globe. When asked about his upcoming appearance at the Halo Halo Food Festival, JP said: “I am looking forward to my visit to Dubai again. It has been a long and testing year with the pandemic so I’m excited to meet all my kabayan and share my cooking techniques and flavours thru the partnership with Halo Halo Restaurant!”
