Samba’s Christmas Eve Dinner at Php 2,900 nett per person!
During this season of festivities, Samba serves a special holiday dinner that is of a 5-course meal. Starting with a seafood starter, followed by a soup, then a seafood and beef main and ending the meal with a dessert. Authentic Peruvian dishes by Chef Carlo Huerta that are fresh, colorful, and flavorful.
Here are Samba’s special Christmas Eve dishes!
Starting off with this beautiful work of culinary art. Yellowfin tuna loin, prawn tails, rocoto leche de tigre foam, glazed sweet potato, cancha corn and cold press extra virgin olive oil. The freshness from the seafood was on point and the rocoto leche de tigre foam was sweet with a spicy kick.
Followed by Cappucino de Ave al Aji. Lola’s creamy chicken soup with cinnamon and bread croutons. Comforting chicken soup with a hint of cinnamon paired with bread croutons that has a perfect crunch.
Moving on the the mains. First was Chef Carlo’s lovely seafood main, a dish that’s made with braised black cod fillet and grilled prawn with coral butter sauce, creamy fava bean puree and micro greens. The braised black cod fillet had a crispy skin and a flaky flesh, and the grilled prawns was plump and juicy. The coral butter sauce and the silky smooth fava bean puree complemented the natural sweetness of the seafood duo. Well done, Chef Carlo!
The second main course was the Lomo al Wok con Quinua Andina. It’s US beef tenderloin saute, potato canchan, organic black and white quinoa, panca pepper sauce, and micro leaves. Thick and tender beef cooked to perfection paired with a savory panca pepper sauce. The creamy organic black and white quinoa with pepper bits added texture and more flavor to this well-executed steak dish.
Ending our 5-course meal on a sweet note. Trufon de Chocolate y Lucuma. It’s a decadent dessert made with 70% Peruvian chocolate mousse, almond crispy flakes, garden greens powder and Lucuma ice cream. This decadent, multi-layered dessert had us at first bite. The smooth chocolate mousse paired with Lucuma ice cream that gave us a taste of authentic Peruvian flavors. Perfect ending to a lavish meal.
