Café Ilang-Ilang Serves Delectable Kurobuta Pork Dishes


The Manila Hotel's famed Cafe Ilang-Ilang launches a variety of exquisite meals utilizing the remarkable quality and flavor of local Kurobuta pork from Esguerra Farms. Kurobuta stems from a Japanese name meaning "black pig." Renowned for its profuse marbling, suppleness, and rich flavor profile, Kurobuta pork is sometimes referred to as the "Wagyu of pork."

"We are excited to elevate the buffet spread of Café Ilang-Ilang with the produce of Esguerra Farms," says Konrad Walter, Executive Chef at The Manila Hotel. Esguerra Farms in Lipa, Batangas, is committed to using sustainable and ethical farming practices that prioritize animal care and environmental conservation.

The pigs are grown in a safe, hygienic, and stress-free environment thanks to the farm's own Kurobuta Village. The pigs are sheltered, fed, and pampered, resulting in a higher pH level that allows for maximum marbling, retention of natural flavor, and healthier meat color.
