The Best Poke Bowls and more only at Citron Café inside Holiday Inn & Suites Makati!

I recently had a quick but fantastic lunch at Citron Café inside Holiday Inn & Suites Makati with my KTG fellows a few weeks ago and I must suggest you come and visit the place if you are looking for good food with global flavors. When I arrived the gang were already having some starters -- Nachos, Caesar Salad and this Pork Rilette that made our time truly worthwhile as we waited for our other friends to arrive. I also had a taste of their super comforting Zuppa di Funghi and Prince Albert's Classic Onion Soup.

But because Lent is here. Holiday Inn & Suites Makati purposefully brings back their famous Poke Bowls this year but this time in a la carte form. They have the best ones I've had compared to the ones I tried before, including that unforgettable and disappointing Poke Bowl I had a few weeks back in our office building's cafe.

Salmon, Tuna and Spicy Tuna Poke Bowls
Each Salmon and Tuna Poke Bowl had the same combination of tender edamame, crispy veggies, nori, seaweed, sesame seeds, the sweetest mangoes and the freshest avocados with your choice of either white or brown rice.   

The third Poke Bowl is also made with Tuna but with an added kick of kimchi, which makes it even more appetizing I must say. Choose from two sauces with either Sriracha or Gojuchang. 

My favorite has always been the Salmon Poke Bowl, so yes, I am going back again in the next few days because I just loved it so much. And at Php365++ per bowl, you can never go wrong with this!

For meat lovers who don't usually follow traditions of meatless days during Lent, you can always choose from either a sandwich, some kebabs. Lighter options include fish and tortilla wraps as well.

I always brag about how you can find some of Makati's most unique and Pinoy inspired desserts only at Holiday Inn & Suites Makati, just like their Samurai Crepe (crepes with the best Philippine mangoes and cream) and this rich Ube Cheesecake which is enclosed in white chocolate. Because for Pinoys, ube is life!

Truffles with the loudest colors, and three letters made of chocolate, which is actually the name of our small and happy foodie group!
