Samba Welcomes You Back

Samba at Shangri-La The Fort, Manila is now open daily from 11am to 10pm



We are pleased to share the news that Samba, the Peruvian restaurant of Shangri-La The Fort Manila, has finally reopened after months of lockdown. We visited the restaurant last week to feast on some of our favorites and to try other dishes we don't normally order.

Operating Hours: Daily | 11:00am to 10:00pm
Reservation: +63 (02) 8820 0888 | +639175363287
Menus: A la Carte, Beverage & Wine Menu





We started our meal with our favorite appetizer, the Empanadas de Lomo. These crunchy and flaky puff pastries are filled with chunks of braised US prime beef tenderloin and went perfectly well with the rocoto chimichurri salsa.



For our main dish, we ordered the Anticucho de Pulpo, a Peruvian-style grilled octopus flavored with ají panca (Peruvian red pepper) served with roasted potatoes and ocopa sauce on the side. The flavors are very festive.



Instead of ordering rice, we opted for the Prawns Quinotto which is a quinoa risotto dish cooked with calamari and topped with parmesan cheese, feta cheese, and chargrilled prawns. This is a must-try!



For dessert, we ordered the Picarones which are Peruvian pumpkin donuts drizzled with raw cane sugar syrup with citrus sorbet on the side. It is quite filling.



We were also introduced to the Caipirinha Cart which serves Sambas's signature drink, the Samba Caipirinha. The drink will be prepared right in front of you. Quite entertaining to watch.



The Samba Caipirinha is one of my favorite drinks here at Samba. It is made with Sagatiba Pura Cachaça mixed with fresh lime, house ginger shrub, and garnished with Maracuja (passion fruit). Very refreshing!
