The place looks exactly the same as how I remembered it. Although I wonder how the hotel looked back in 1912 when it was first opened.
While waiting for the festivities to begin we went around and checked out the Champagne room. I would like to try the Italian and French cuisine here sometime. Ala carte lunch is served from 12:00- 2:30 pm and dinner at 7:00 to 10:30 pm.
Our dinner menu. The food was just okay but what really stood out that evening were the waiters. They were so attentive that it was almost stalker-ish (is that the term? haha). Every time we would get out of the table they would rearrange the silverware and refold our napkins. Water glasses kept getting refilled and when I had coffee someone picked up the empty sugar sachet as soon as I placed it on the table. We almost expected them to give us shoulder massage after the meal :)
Fancy arrangement for the coldcuts
The dessert table was very interesting!
I tried the ube roll with mango sauce
and the Christmas looking bread pudding with cream sauce
The highlight of the night was when we spotted a very familiar person in the crowd. Look closely at the tall woman wearing the blue dress!
Hello, Mrs. Marcos!
