Cru Steakhouse Lets Adventurous Eaters Test their Chefs in 'Mystery Box Challenge'

posted on

Are your palates up for a challenge? 

Inspired by the cooking reality show MasterChef, the latest offering from Cru Steakhouse is an absolute thrill to the senses! Add some spice to your typical fancy dinner when you take on Cru's Mystery Box challenge. 

Cru's chefs will be roaming around with a huge crate of kiln-dried mahogany wood at the restaurant and as soon as you're ushered to your table, these chefs will be offering you the challenge. Inside the box are raw and fresh ingredients that are prepared by Marriott's Executive Chef Meik Brammer where he randomly mixes up premium steak, seafood, vegetables and sauces that will not only challenge his culinary team but your palates as well.

When you agree to take on the challenge, the chef will quickly collaborate with you using the mystery ingredients, still based on what you like, making sure you are satisfied when you finish your meal. This off-menu offering gives you a 3-course dinner which includes an appetizer or soup, seafood dish, steak with side dishes or dessert for only P3,850 per person

On our visit, our mystery box included some French Beans, Truffle Paste, Green Apple, Organic Potato, Organic Betroot, Button Mushrooms, Rice and Stockyard Striploin. Curious as to what Chef Brammer whipped up for us based on our mystery box? Here's a look at the memorable 3-course meal experience:

It was a choice between a Classic Apple Pie or German Pancakes. Our table ordered the latter, using the fresh green apple found in the box, topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream that's made in-house.

So whether it's a first date or if you're just feeling adventurous, Cru's Mystery Box is an experience you would want to tick of your buck-eat list! For inquiries, call (02) 9889999 or visit their website. Follow them on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for their latest offerings.
