A Very Raffles Weekend...

There are just a handful of prestigious hotel properties in the world that exude a richness and depth of history, old world colonial elegance and charm...


...one of them is Raffles. The very name takes you back to the golden age of travel when Hemingway sought solace with his favorite cocktail at the Long Bar after a long voyage and Maugham indulged in afternoon tea for a taste of home in the tropics. Here in Manila, that same signature style that made Raffles synonymous with an elegance from a bygone era is recreated at Raffles Makati.

A Light Yet Grand Mid-Week Lunch at Grand Hyatt Manila's The Grand Kitchen

Inspired by Grand Hyatt Manila's Go Green initiative, I thought it would be a refreshing change of pace to enjoy a light yet sumptuous, and healthier, mid-week lunch at The Grand Kitchen...


...and what a feast. Indulging in the finest and freshest seafood instead of the usual proteins does make you feel better. And if you wish to go all-out, experience Go Green Mondays at Grand Hyatt Manila's The Grand Kitchen where you can discover savory plant-based burgers and sausages by Beyond Meat (more on Green Mondays on my previous post, #GoGreenGoGrand: Grand Hyatt Manila Goes Green in Grand Style). If you can't go on a Monday, The Grand Kitchen still offers a wide array of healthy options for the rest of the week (you can also order Beyond Meat Burgers and Sausages from the A La Carte menu), until you meet their indulgent Baklava and mouth-watering Bicol Express. But all's good. It always is. At The Grand Kitchen.
