Nothing can stop Filipinos from enjoying the holidays with the people they love. Pandemic notwithstanding, celebrations and reunions continue, albeit in smaller groups or in virtual space. In Iloilo City, Richmonde Hotel Iloilo is gearing up for the season’s events with lavish buffet spreads and awesome takeaway menus so you can savor your Christmas and New Year’s feasts however and wherever you want.
Safe dining has always been priority at The Granary, Richmonde’s all-day dining restaurant. And with the hotel’s Safe Stay program securely in place, you can enjoy the scrumptious fare at the Holiday Luxe Buffets worry-free. Serving up delectable dishes like roasted beef chuck roll, classic paella, sisig traingulo with beer sinamak, Cabatuan tablea pudding, and tender rib eye at the grilling station, The Granary promises a feast to remember on Christmas eve.
To usher in the new year, a marvelous banquet awaits revelers—risotto balls stuffed with beef ragu and mozzarella cheese, duck ala manga, braised lamb with saffron-infused Middle Eastern rice, grilled Angus beef, Guimaras mango cheesecake with Cabatuan tablea and muscovado tuille, and a lot more. Adding to the opulence of these festive buffets are mouthwatering items that fill the Japanese, pasta and dessert stations, and the fresh meats available for a la minute grilling at the open kitchen.
The Holiday Luxe Buffets happen on December 24 and 31, from 6pm to 10pm and are priced at PhP 1,500 nett per person, inclusive of taxes. Children 6 to 12 years old get 50% discount while children 5 years old and below eat for free. Prior reservations are required due to limited seating capacity.
