Spiral, a concept restaurant with 452 indoor and outdoor seating capacity, aims to “bring the authenticity and warmth of the traditional French markets and Asian hawker stalls into a five-star hotel setting.” The dishes are prepared by 60-80 chefs. The result is an astonishing mix of world cuisines a diner would run out of breath just to navigate.
From Nov. 24 to Nov. 30, 22 Prime will offer a delectable three-course menu comprised of a soup dish, pumpkin bisque with pancetta bacon chestnut and cinnamon foam, and apple pie with vanilla ice cream for dessert.
One of the largest breweries in the Netherlands has partnered with one of the major buffet restaurants in the Philippines for a collaboration that Filipinos will surely enjoy. Vikings may now relish in a plush buffet meal while enjoying endless classic Bavaria beer.
