Three ways to sizzle
Let Resorts World Manila (RWM) warm your taste buds this rainy season with a trio of sizzling dishes at its Pinoy comfort dining outlet, Silogue.

The burger patties in the Salisbury Steak Sizzler is made from premium ground beef cuts and covered in savory gravy. Grilled to doneness, the beef patties are given a lightly crisp layer from the sizzling plate for an added dimension of texture.

The Mixed Seafood Sizzler gives diners a solid beach vibe with a fresh assortment of squid, shellfish, and fish. The briny flavors are balanced by the earthy flavors of the rich peanut sauce.

Summer barbecues are given an upgrade with the Crispy Ribs Sizzler. Generous servings of crispy-on-the-outside, tender beef ribs are coated in a succulently sweet barbecue sauce that is well-loved by the Filipino palate.

All Silogue Sizzlers are served on a sizzling hot plate with a cup of yellow rice and a side of buttered vegetables for a wholesome and hearty meal. The three dishes are available until July 31.

Silogue is located at the ground-floor Gaming Area of RWM and is open to guests 21 years old and above only.
