“A large part of our clientele and our staff are Filipino, and we wanted to hold an event that would celebrate the occasion. We have been serving traditional Filipino
favourites in store for some time now, and the food festival is a great way for all nationalities to explore the tastes behind Filipino foods, and buy some favourites at great prices,” explained Priyanka M. Ramchandani, the young co-owner and Marketing Manager of the supermarket chain.
The Food Festival will be held on Wednesday June 12th from 6pm till 9pm at Robinson branches in Deira and Tecom, bringing together a range of Filipino suppliers. Customers will get a chance to sample an interesting mix of meat and vegetarian Filipino stews and dishes, including favourites such as Chicken Adobo, Pancit Canton, Tilapia Fish, Kare-Kare etc. and mingle with chefs, suppliers and staff to learn more about the cuisine and the culture of the Philippines. Freshly baked goodies in the store like the hot traditional Pandesal bread, Filipino fruit salads, as well as special national deserts like Buko Pandan, will also be served to all, along with the hot foods, for free. Spreading the spirit of Filipino cuisine beyond stores, the supermarket has launched a digital photo contest, inviting customers across the city to submit a recipe and an accompanying image of their favourite home-made Filipino dish. The most appetizing dishes will then be selected and the winner will receive a Free Robinson Supermarket Gift Voucher to spend at any of the supermarket chain's three outlets in Al Barsha, Deira or Tecom.
In addition to the good festival, a range of goods including fruits, vegetables, fish, butchery, canned food, drinks, chocoaltes and many household items will be on promotion and offered for low prices under the Pinoy Independance Day Fiesta, running from J11th June to 22nd June.
