Yesterday’s list revealed hotel choices for the celebration of Happy Hearts’ Day. Today, let’s look at some of the food and dining choices for that special date.
If your appetite is good for buffets and you’re prepared to shell out a hundred bucks more than the usual dinner date expense, then head on to Marriott Hotel or Marco Polo Hotel and their sumptuous buffets, which cost around Php1,000 each. Cowrie Cove Restaurant at the Shangri-La in Mactan also offers delicious buffets at about Php1,500 per person. The Gustavian at Ayala offers a Php380 per person buffet package. Parklane Hotel, which is very near Ayala Center Cebu, also serves good food choices for a Php600 lunch buffet. Pino!, in Lahug, also has trusty lunch and dinner buffets that range from Php250 and Php400.
