Excerpt from “Best for Christmas Eve Dinner” by Margie F. Francisco for SEAIR InFlight December – January 2010
“The best place to eat Christmas Eve dinner is at home. I don’t really know too many people who go to our restaurants for noche buena. Most spend it at home and a lot of people actually pick up food from our restaurants. El Cirkulo for paellas, conchinillo, slow roasted beef belly with horseradish sauce; Milky Way Café for crispy hito (deep fried catfish), lechon kawali (three-week-old suckling pig), and Milky Way halo-halo (a local dessert of tropical fruits and beans served with crushed ice, milk and sweetener).”
– J Gamboa (Chef and owner, El Cirkulo and Milky Way; Director, Les Toques Blanches Philippines)
