Dragon Boat Festival at Crowne Plaza Manila Galleria

Partake in one of China’s traditional celebrations this May at Crowne Plaza Manila Galleria.

Sample the essences of authentic Chinese cuisine at Xin Tian Di as it joins in commemorating the Duanwu or the Dragon Boat Festival. This event celebrates the life and death of Qu Yuan, a renowned scholar in China, with people racing on dragon boats and sharing the traditional Zongzi, which are flavorful rice and meat dumplings wrapped in bamboo leaves.

Join this special gathering and enjoy assorted variations of Zongzi. Try out the Traditional Zongzi, which is composed of white glutinous rice with green beans, salted egg yolk, pork belly, sea abalone and dried shitake mushrooms wrapped in bamboo leaf. You may opt for a lighter option of Healthy Zongzi, made up of organic brown rice with olive oil, red bean, peanuts, conpoy and dried shitake mushrooms wrapped in bamboo leaf. Give yourself a treat in this celebration with a Sweet Zongzi, composed of violet glutinous rice with lotus cream and muscovado sugar wrapped in bamboo leaf.

A special a la carte menu is also available for this occasion, featuring scrumptious dishes such as the Mi Gao, a steamed rice cake with minced pork and dried shrimp in sweet sesame soya, perfectly paired with the Sweet Wintermelon, Lotus Seeds, Barley, and Red Dates Tea set.
