“We designed the a la carte menu with an array of regional and international culinary influences across all categories,” explains Executive Chef Christian Bouby. “The selection is very straightforward. We want to also focus our attention to diners who might not have the appetite for a buffet experience. We take our cues from what’s close to the heart of dining enthusiasts — comfort food of worldly tastes and flavors.”

“The options vary from healthy to meaty,” the chef adds. “We put emphasis to our own creations infused with locally sourced ingredients and produce. We also bring the brand’s Swiss heritage to the table. These signature dishes are marked with the Swiss flag. Likewise, we are offering our own rendition to classic favorites from the East and West.”

Zee’s Pick for the Week

Tickle Your Palate with Father’s Eggs

ZEE picks an interesting dessert for our reader’s sweet passions.  Plantation Bay’s Bakeshop by the Beach created a dessert specialty that will tickle both your palate and naughty thoughts.

Pastry Chef Gerard Apurado presented a unique treat for this year’s Father’s Day, it is called Father’s Eggs.  However, Father’s Eggs received highly positive feedback from their clientele and from food critics.  And the people could not stop ordering them; so why not make everyday a Father’s Day?

Father’s Eggs are delicately crafted custard inside an eggshell; plus, it comes in six different flavors:  coffee, pandan, strawberry, ube, plain custard, and mango.  However, each flavor is given a playful name by Chef Apurado.  The amazing part is that every flavor is so distinct and crave-worthy.  Chef Apurado is keeping the recipe a secret; but everyone can order Father’s Eggs at the Plantation Bay’s Bakeshop by the Beach Facebook page.
