TASTING ROOM: A U.S. Thanksgiving Dinner in Manila! (A Photo Essay)

Tasting Room- U.S. Thanksgiving Dinner in Manila!-28.jpg

Glad to be back in Manila just in time to celebrate Thanksgiving with the U.S. Embassy team at Tasting Room, with wine pairing from Happy Living Wines. After a hectic APEC week with President Obama in attendance, we are thankful that everything went smoothly with no security incidents in Manila.

It was my first time at Tasting Room, and we were pleasantly surprised by how good it is amidst the mixed reviews when it first opened.


G/F Crown Towers, City of Dreams Manila, Roxas Boulevard, Parañaque City.
