Office Meals Can Be Good

Being assigned in our Colombo City (Sri Lanka) office even for just a short period somehow excites my palate. Not just because of the many restaurants that I could visit for a rendezvous with the different varieties of foods but for the meals that are being served in the office. You see, in our satellite office, Japanese and Filipino expatriates eat together during lunch and dinner over meals prepared by local cooks. The theme is, of course, Japanese cuisine which we Filipinos have embraced and learned to love over time even back in our homeland Philippines.

The preparation, I should say is quite good. I can see how everyone enjoys the meals composed mainly of either meat or fish entrĂ©e for the main dish and vegetables and pasta or both for side dishes. At times noodles are also served which are equally delicious and appetizing. Regularly accompanied with stimulating “miso” soup or some other oriental soup, a bowl of exquisite Japanese steamed rice and fresh fruits for dessert, office meals can be surprisingly good.

I will not be describing each meal I had anymore. I thought it would be better if you will try to figure out the composition by yourself through the photographs. Not a single meal is repeated within a week, but there were times that the work load is just too much making us very hungry. And yes, during those times we immediately devour the food and totally forget taking photos resulting to only having 7 images. :-) Enjoy the tour though.

To finish every luscious meal off, fresh fruits in season such as melon, pineapple and sometimes banana, watermelon, mango and papaya is always provided.

If you would like to know whether Filipinos are happy with such meals? Well, the photos below could provide you with a clear answer. c“,)

For every smile of a happy and satisfied eater, there is a greater happiness and fulfillment being felt by the chef behind.
