Dinner at Tiffany's-42.jpg
Dinner at Tiffany’s is a refined Lechon degustacion experience, inspired by Dedet’s travel to New York and the classic that is “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”. The dinner is balanced, with each course building up on the previous one, and preparing your appetite for the Lechon finale.

Here’s a photo essay of our Dinner at Tiffany’s experience… 


Dinner at Tiffany's-24.jpg
Best to start your dinner between 7.00-7.30pm because the lechon is cooked just in time for the 8th course, which is after 2 hours.

Love the silver lechon centerpiece filled with fresh flowers and fruits, which you can eat throughout the dinner.

The plating of each course is carefully designed to match the food. The silverware is mostly sourced from the weekend flea and vintage markets in New York, while some of the plates are from Celestina by Ricco Ocampo.

✮ Ube Pandan Cosmopolitan

The opening cocktail is lambanog with juice and dehydrated ube-pandan on the rim of the glass. The ube-pandan flavor teases your taste buds, and the cocktail just has enough alcohol to stimulate your appetite.

Lechon Scone with Mr. Thomas Butter

The first appetizer is scone with lechon bits and Mang Tomas lechon sauce infused with butter.

Can we have tea please to pair with this course?

Tendoncini with Mango Atchara Dressing

Fried tender tendon (fibrous collagen tissue) coated with chicharon bituka crumbs on a bed of mango atchara. Dedet loves tendon because cooked correctly, it’s super tender and not to mention healthy.

It was good but I did not like the sticky feeling from biting into the tendon.

Make sure to bring your own whiskey and wines to accompany the degustacion.  

(Corkage applies if you bring your own wine. They can also do a wine and lechon degustacion pairing with their in-house Yats wines.)

Dinner at Tiffany's-19.jpg
✮ Farmers Pasta

I love this mixed salad made of carrots, cucumber in pasta form, tomatoes, itlog na pula, juansuy, and tahini dressing.  It’s a salty but refreshing course.

Dinner at Tiffany's-20.jpg
✮ South Sea Pearls

Love the fresh shrimp and scallop in creamy sauce with loads of mini-sago pearls in a heavy shell cup. Use the mini spoon to scoop up the pearls and tease your palate. Sarap!

Dinner at Tiffany's-26.jpg
✮ Pepita’s Lechon Manok

The chicken is baked with truffle essence and foie gras, infusing the skin and meat with the flavors. Finally, a sosy chicken course in a lechon degustacion–love it! 

Can we order a whole baked chicken?

Dinner at Tiffany's-27.jpg
✮ KKK Palate Cleanser

The palate cleanser is Kinayod na Kinatasang Kundol (KKK)–grated and squeezed wintermelon juice in English–in a heavy silver cup. A cool, refreshing, and unique palate cleanser.

Dinner at Tiffany's-32.jpg
✮ Lileya’s live harp performance

Before the lechon course, Lileya serenades the group with a soothing live harp performance of the theme song from Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

Dinner at Tiffany's-43.jpg
Option #1: ✮ The Ultimate de Leche stuffed with truffle rice with foie gras.

My favorite Lechon de leche with three of the best ingredients in the world–lechon, truffle and foie gras! 

Dinner at Tiffany's-45.jpg
Imagine eating truffled rice with the freshly pugon-baked lechon with crispy skin and pork meat infused with the flavors of truffle and foie gras. Pair with red wine or whiskey.

Dinner at Tiffany's-48.jpg
Option #2: 8 Treasures de Leche stuffed with sticky rice, salted egg, longaniza Macao, chestnuts, pork cubes, cashew, and secret ingredients. 

Some of our Chinese friends prefer this version stuffed with machang and other Chinese ingredients. 

New York de Leche-1.jpg
Option #3: New York de Leche stuffed with risoni, portobello mushroom, and cheese.

This is the NY-inpired Lechon stuffing launched at Purple Yam in New York. It’s a safe option.

Dinner at Tiffany's-58.jpg
Binatog Panna Cotta

For dessert, most of the foodies raved about the panna cotta topped with boiled white corn kernels and sweet coconut latik. A great sweet ending to a proudly Pinoy Lechon degustacion! 🙂

Dinner at Tiffany's-75.jpg
Thanks, guys for the awesome meal and company during the launch of Dinner at Tiffany’s!

Dinner at Tiffany's-50.jpg
I love this degustacion because it’s not overloaded with pork, but rather balanced with seafood and chicken dishes and other truly original courses. I also like the tableware setup that matches each of the courses.

I recommend The Ultimate de Leche and bringing your own wines to pair with the lechon.
