Party With The Vikings At This One-Night-Only Crayfish Feast

People are always looking for unique parties and refreshing events to attend, and come September 8 at 6 p.m. onwards, Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila will be offering just that. In partnership with NordCham, they will be transforming their Harbor Garden tent into a Viking Village for a themed celebration of the Crayfish Party 2018!

 

 

Guests will be treated to a rare opportunity to taste a traditional Nordic buffet honoring the star of the day—crayfish! These freshwater crustaceans resembling miniature lobsters are imported all the way from Scandinavia as you’d be hard-pressed to find those here.  The crayfish is a succulent little thing that sits between a lobster and a shrimp. So if you like eating those, you will definitely love the sweetness of the crayfish, which are brined, boiled for several hours with lots of dill, and served with lemon wedges.

The rest of the spread will be prepared by Sofitel’s master artisans featuring Nordic dishes such as salmon gravadlax with honey dill mustard sauce, crispy roast whole pork, smoked tuna with capers, Swedish meatballs with lingon jam, Jansson’s temptation, toscakaka, and several kinds of pickled herring and quiche.

As if that wasn’t enough, there will also be an excellent selection of wines and beers served to partygoers from San Miguel, Engkanto Brewery, and Wine Depot.

Not only is this a night to dine like the Vikings, but it’s also in good conscience as the proceeds will go to Chosen Children Village (CCV)—a foundation dedicated to providing a home environment and a care facility for physically and mentally challenged children.

Tickets are available at PHP3,900 per person or PHP35,000 for a group of 10. If you’re looking to extend the weekend’s festivities, you might want to opt for a staycation at the hotel for a special rate that starts at P6,500.
