Treasure and Tradition

In celebration of the biggest festival in the Chinese Lunar calendar, Marriott Manila ushers in the Year of the Fire Rooster with a chest box filled with three traditional delicacies: Tikoy (Nian Gao), Radish Cake (Lo Bak Go), and Taro Cake (Wu Tao Gao).

Executive Chinese Law Wui Wing made sure these delicacies are prepared in the most flavorful and authentic way. The round-shaped 750-gram Tikoy, with a classic sweet taste symbolic to the Chinese culture as it means “higher year”, attracts wealth and luck throughout the year. Likewise, the 500-gram radish and taro cake slices are made using prime ingredients from Hong Kong. These cakes signify good fortune and prosperity.

The elegant red oriental box—whether shared to others as it symbolizes an abundance of luck and prosperity, or placed at the center of your New Year celebration—is available for only Php 1,388 at Marriott Café Bakery, Crema, and the newly-opened Man Ho Chinese restaurant.
