Saturdays are usually spent waking up late, lounging around the room, and the moment we feel energized, we get ready to go out and feed ourselves with new EATS. But occasionally there are special Saturdays, that make new discoveries fun and interesting. In one of our recent EATSperiences, we had a vibrant and colorful Saturday at Samba in Shangri-La Fort. Who doesn’t love feasting on good food?! Allow us to take you to a fiesta, the Samba way. In this edition of EATSplorations, join us as we share about Peruvian and Latin American dishes at Sabado de Fiesta at Samba in Shangri-La Fort. Enjoy!

Samba is one of Shangri-La Fort’s in-house restaurant that serves up Peruvian and Latin American dishes. It is located next to the hotel’s pool area and is headed by the wonderful and talented, Chef Carlo Huerta Echegaray.
As we were approaching Samba, it being by the pool area, the buntings and the colorful centerpieces, made us really feel that we were about to EATSperience a great Sabado de Fiesta. Sabado de Fiesta is Samba’s all-you-can-eat promotion happening every last Saturday of the month. Diners can enjoy an all-you-can-eat live taco station, ceviche and tiradito bar, and an ala carte menu. It is from 11:00 a.m.- 3:00 p.m., and is priced at Php 1,800 net for adults and Php 900 net for children. And of course, what is a fiesta without the drinks?! A selection of alcoholic beverages is priced at Php 800 net per person and if you are not into that, a selection of refreshing drinks is priced at Php 400 net per person. Do know that the prices for the unlimited drinks is still on top of the price of the all-you-can-eat promo. Sounds good so far? Let’s check out the EATS!
Highlights of our Sabado de Fiesta EATSperience!
The Spread of Peruvian EATS at Sabado de Fiesta!
The all-you-can-eat spread includes live taco station, ceviche and tiradito bar, perfect while waiting for select dishes of your choice from the ala carte menu. The ala carte menu consists of Peruvian and Latin American flavors of soup, fish, chicken, meat, seafood and dessert.
Causa – Mashed Potato Stuffed with Seafood (Top)
Creamy and smooth textures from the mashed potato with a surprise seafood filling in between bites.
Tuna and Salmon Tiradito (Bottom)
Tiradito, is somewhat similar to ceviche however, it is not cooked in juices of citrus fruits. It is slices of fresh tuna or salmon, perfect starter for a Peruvian feast.
The ceviche station includes catch of the day like tuna, salmon, prawns, scallops, aji limo, aji amarillo, roccoto cream and lime. We were lucky to have Chef Carlo prepare our ceviche order. Really refreshing, tasty, and a whole lot of love!
Another live station was the street taco station. We went back several times to have our taco cravings satisfied. Including Baby Eats, who really enjoyed the tacos. The taco station has a flour tortilla as the base and toppings like, pork carnitas, frejoles churros, salsa picante, guacamole, vegetables and jalapeno cheese. Diners get to choose what toppings they want for their tacos as it is prepared on the spot.
Parihuela de Mariscos – Peruvian Bouillabaisse with Fresh Seafood
A hot bowl of comforting soup, perfect after several servings of refreshing starters. The seafood broth was tart in flavor with a slight kick from the aji panca (red chile pepper). It was so comforting that we really savored every sip.
Mixed Anticuchos – Prawn, Mushroom, and Chicken skewers
Perfectly seasoned and grilled prawn, mushroom and chicken skewers. Served with roasted potatoes and ocopa and rocoto sauce.
Seco de Pato – Duck Leg Stew
Paired with a bowl of rice, this juicy and tender duck leg filled us up really fast. The duck with aji apianca, piquillo pepper, and frijoles de Chincha was plainly irresistible.
Sudado de Mero – Grouper Filet Stew
Grouper filet with aji amarillo, white wine, tomatoes and onion stew. The flavor from the stew made this dish really hearty, and the grouper filet was silky smooth.
Dining by the pool, enjoying an all-you-can-eat Peruvian feast, while sipping some refreshing drinks is a perfect way to spend a colorful Saturday at Samba’s Sabado de Fiesta. For Php 1,800 net for adults and Php 800 for children, and an additional Php 800 per person for alcoholic beverages and Php 400 for non-alcoholic beverages.
