Brunch doesn’t have to be limited to a plate of eggs Benedict, a bowl of fruits, and a flute of mimosa because it can also be about a perfectly seared US Angus steak or a succulent lobster drenched in lemon butter sauce. How about the crispy skin and juicy meat of lechon or maybe a pan of flavor-rich paella?
Marriott Manila is redefining the brunch experience with its Sunday Brunch 2.0, their biggest buffet feast yet! Launching on May 12, just in time for Mother’s Day, the hotel combines the exquisite selection of Marriott Cafe, the prime dishes of Cru Steakhouse, and the international flavors of Greatroom in one grand buffet.

Then head to the seafood bar where diners can find a premium selection of seafood. Marvel at the offerings while chefs in costume welcome everyone to dig into the freshly cooked seafood dishes.

Marriott Manila is known for using sustainable seafood, so every bite of that crab meat, a serving of that flaky baramundi fillet, and a crispy portion of fried grouper is all guilt free.
