The Hilton Tokyo and the Embassy of Colombia are to jointly host a special gourmet promotion at the Hilton Tokyo’s Buffet Restaurant ‘Checkers’ from August 26 to 30, 2009.

During this event guests will have the opportunity to feast on a wide range of authentic Colombian dishes at the lunch buffet (from 3,350JPY) and dinner buffet (from 5,500JPY).

 In addition, a Colombian Salsa Dance event will be held at the ‘Marble Lounge’ on August 30, to celebrate the grand finale of the Colombian promotion.

Colombia is the only country in South America to have both a Pacific and Caribbean coast. The rugged Andes Mountains form a geographic spine that divides the country from north to south.

Sitting at the crossroads of Latin America, the country has experienced a wide range of cultural influences and this mixture of cultures is reflected in Colombian cuisine.

For this distinctive promotion, diners can enjoy almost 40 Colombian dishes on the lunch buffet and 50 exquisite examples of Colombian cuisine served on the dinner buffet, all specially prepared by the guest chef Mr. Angela Gomez from Bogota, Colombia.

Guests will be able to try Colombian chicken and potato soup ‘Ajiaco’, the local dish of Bogota, or coffee braised veal, ‘Lomitos al café’. In addition, ‘Bandeja paisa’, a combination of cooked pork, beans, rice, accompanied by sweet fried plantains and corn bread, can also be enjoyed. For dessert, a delightful array of Colombian sweets using a variety of tropical fruits will be available.

On August 30, the hotel will also host a Colombian Salsa Night at the ‘Marble Lounge’, welcoming world - renowned Colombian Salsa dancer BETO, Grand Champion at the Colombian Salsa Competition for three consecutive years from 2003, as well as the world champion at the International Salsa Congress in 2007. During the event, guests will be invited to learn world - class dance techniques, enjoy the show and dance all night for only 3,500JPY per person.
