Christmas in May: The Plaza Pop Up Store at Rustan's Makati

Christmas came in early this year as The Plaza opens a pop up store in Rustan's Makati. Aside from its scrumptious ham, it also offers other favorites such as Krispy Kangkong, Lasagne al Forno and Chicken ala Kiev among others. And I got to try a bunch over the short midweek break. 

Hello, The Plaza.
Established in 1965, The Plaza has been a strong brand not just for its delectable ham but also in the catering industry. Its mouthwatering spread and strong clientele made it a trustworthy name and reliable supplier for event needs. And now you don't have to wait for the next gathering to sink your teeth into The Plaza's superb dishes.
We started off with some plates of Krispy Kangkong (PHP200) and it was the perfect appetizer to start our lunch. Lightly battered yet packed with crunch, this is an instant favorite. 
Next served were slices of The Plaza's premium ham. Each bite gives me that holiday cheer and I couldn't help crave for some hot pandesal to enjoy it with. 
It comes with four sauces namely premium glaze, wasabi mayo, garlic and mustard mayo. I always go for garlic but wasabi mayo is my new favorite. It's not that spicy and quite refreshing which makes it a lovely contrast with ham. 
Another dish worth checking out is Boiled Corned Beef (PHP550). Served with horseradish and vegetables, this meat lover classic is best enjoyed with rice. 
Chicken ala Kiev (PHP450) was served next and it was one fragrant plate hard to ignore. Oozing with the aroma of butter, slicing this golden brown chicken would make anyone giddy.
Served with either rice or mashed potato and vegetables on the side, this hearty meal is a must try at The Plaza. 
If you fancy layers of pasta and ground meat generously topped with cheese, then Lasagne al Forno (PHP400) is for you. This classic comfort food has the perfect balance of ingredients. Cheesy and meaty yet not cloying at all.
But my heart belongs to Truffle Pasta in Parmesan Wheel (PHP400). As a big fan of truffle, I was so happy when the staff put a lot of truffle in and mixed the pasta on the Parmesan wheel. (Note: The smell will drive you crazy!)
Kids and kids at heart would love The Plaza Cream Cheeseburger (PHP380). Though the burgers are a tad small for its price, The Plaza makes up for its juicy burger patties and delicious cream cheese! 
And if you plan to have this to go, make sure to generously top it with La Petite Fromagerie's Truffle Cream Cheese! It's a sure winner!
Drop by The Plaza soon as this pop up store will only be at Rustan's Makati until end of May.
The Plaza is located at 5th Floor, Rustan's Makati, Glorietta 4, Makati City.
