Marriott Manila’s gourmet eight: the ice cream for all season

Halo Halo

When the day feels like longer than it actually is, stress and exhaustion usually becomes the result. And if staycation is not possible or a long day of pampering is hard to squeeze in to your already very busy day, Marriott Manila’s The Lounge is introducing a delicious alternative to help you relax and indulge a bit, whether it’s a “me time” moment or bonding with people that matters most.

The rainy season and nippy weather surely won’t stop anyone in enjoying every now and then everybody’s favorite cold, yummy, and tasty treat—ice cream! In the spirit of well-deserved indulgence and to celebrate our love affair with everyone’s saccharine favorite, Chef Fil Afable and his team is launching Marriott Manila’s very own homemade gourmet ice cream selections featuring eight sensational flavors that are guaranteed to bring eight sensational indulgences.  And yes, it’s the kind of ice cream that you can enjoy for all season!

Sure to bring back the fun memories of childhood, Banana Split (P340) is a trio of strawberry, chocolate and vanilla ice cream, made even more flavorful with luscious strawberry and mango slices. Topped with toasted almond flakes, this version offers a unique and refreshing take on this classic concoction.
Sizzling Ice Cream

Another household favorite, The Lounge offers an extra luxurious way to enjoy Halo-Halo (P350). Featuring an extra endearing side of our own local flavors such as macapuno, kaong, nata de coco, sweet beans, sweet banana, ube and garbanzos, this treat offers a rich medley with the velvety vanilla ice cream. To top it off, a generous layer of leche flan and ube makes it a decadent comfort dessert.

Sure to rock your taste buds is the Coupe Denmark (P320), a simple and refined combo of vanilla ice cream, hot fudge and pistachio nuts. For those days that you want to enjoy effortless pleasures, this fusion is the best way to go.

And who can go wrong with the old-fashioned goodness of vanilla ice cream paired with a warm white chocolate chips brownie? The Sizzling Ice Cream (P415) is a tower of goodness finished off with three kinds of nuts you’ve always loved to nibble—pistachios, almonds, and walnuts.

If on the lookout for a refreshing, palate-cleansing dessert, go for Mango Melba (P415). Filled with caramelized mango crowned with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream, this luscious dessert has a light kick of tanginess. Simply divine!

Another certified favorite, the Coupe Romanoff (P415) is oozing with sweet slew of strawberries in grand marnier. Combined with vanilla ice cream, drizzled with strawberry sauce and topped with whip cream, this fruity delight is refreshingly fun and dainty.

For something sweeter and extra indulgent, get to know our Nutty Tower (P415). A humongous scoop of Palawan honey, Maracaibo , mocha, and chocolate ice cream, this dessert is designed to get anyone hooked! And why not? It’s also finished off with lavish pecan, almonds, pistachio, hot fudge, and caramel.

Coupe Romanoff

If you’d rather share your love for ice cream with your big group of friends and family, order our Intensity 8 (P660), guaranteed to send tremors of delight with these earthshaking flavors: vanilla, Maracaibo, Palawan honey, ruby Tuesday, chocolate, strawberry, mango and pistachio—a mishmash of everything you’ve been craving for! Plus, everything is topped off with rich sauces such as caramel, vanilla, and chocolate. And to make it even more irresistible, this special fusion is sprinkled with chocolate chips, mocha bean, and chopped pecan.

There are just days that you need to chill, take a break, and enjoy some casual moments. While that’s awesome enough, take it a notch higher and celebrate the day over these knockout and indulgent gourmet desserts, crafted lovingly by Marriott Manila’s certified connoisseurs.
