Potato Safari 2017

This year’s Potato Safari has Potatoes USA partnering with 25 Seeds by Chef Saul del Rosario, Amare by Chef Chris Locher, Banh Mi by Chef Rex Soriano, and Denlim’s Kitchen by Chef Den Lim to create special US potato menu items offered to the public in all the participating restaurants until June 30. 

The Potato Safari is an annual campaign of Potatoes USA that challenges local restaurants to create innovative recipes using US potatoes. These dishes are offered to the public for a limited time. 

“There are other ways of cooking potatoes aside from the traditional fries,” said Reji Retugal-Onal, country representative of Potatoes USA, the marketing arm of the US potato industry. “Through Potato Safari, we would like to introduce innovative uses of potatoes in different dishes—from appetizers to desserts. At the same time, we encourage our partner restaurants to expand their menu and delight their customers with unique offerings this summer,” she added. 

Denlim’s Kitchen’s US Potato Congee
Since its launch in 2014, Potatoes USA has brought the Potato Safari experience to selected restaurants in Cebu and Davao. Now, it’s Pampanga’s turn, the “Culinary Center of the Philippines”. 

“Cebu, Davao, and Pampanga are among our key markets. We wanted our local chefs to unleash their creativity in creating a wide variety of dishes using a staple ingredient,” Retugal-Onal said. “US potatoes affords them versatility because of the wide range of cuts available and the consistency in supply,” she added.

25 Seeds is located at 2/F Dycaico Ancestral House, Barangay Sto. Rosario, Angeles City; Amare by Chef Chris is in Royce Hotel, M.A. Roxas Highway corner Ninoy Aquino Avenue, Clark Freeport; Banh Mi is at 1-1 Pacimar Estate Jesus St., Pulunbulu, Angeles City while Denlim’s Kitchen is on Maharlika Street in Sindalan, San Fernando Pampanga.
