My Quiet Christmas Eve Dinner

When I think of Christmas, I think of all the sumptuous meal my family feasted on on our many Christmas eve dinners in the Philippines. I don't get to celebrate Christmas with the Filipino dishes traditionally eaten during the holiday season anymore. Now that I live overseas, the practice of partaking Christmas eve meal is what matters most.

Last year, I ushered in Christmas with a hearty meal at the famous Rostiland restaurant in Lamai. I have eaten there countless times. The place serves excellent European food. Since it's Christmas, it's time to pamper my growling tummy with the best food I could find.
After a long day at work that day, I looked forward to having a refreshing drink. I had my favorite Rostiland homemade tea. It's a perfect drink to quench my thirst.

Another favorite of mine at the restaurant is this rich and creamy fish soup that comes with a homemade bread. Yummy.

The highlight of the meal was this chicken stroganoff with rosti ( Swiss potato pancake?). The dish was tasty. The meat was plentiful, I could not finish it all. The real treat was the crispy potato cakes (rosti). I couldnt get enough of it. Yum yum.


  1. Thank you very much dear for sharing these reviews regarding your Christmas Eve Dinner. It seems really interesting and mouthwatering. We also had so yummy European cuisines on Christmas Eve. Actually we attended popular Christmas fest at domestic convention center. Truly, the food was very yummy and I would love to eat that again.
