A salute to the graduates as they receive the most expensive piece of paper on earth

After years of burning the midnight oil and surviving through several hell weeks, the day has finally come when your graduate proudly walks up the stage to receive the most expensive piece of paper on earth: the diploma.

This month, give your graduate the ultimate congratulatory celebration he / she deserves at the country’s iconic Manila Hotel where dining in a group of five at the Champagne Room, Café Ilang Ilang, Cowrie Grill or Ginza will give you a 10% discount on food and beverage purchases upon presentation of a valid school identification or diploma.

If your graduate has a sophisticated palate and is in the mood for French cuisine, Champagne Room’s new chef Christine Zarandin will be more than happy to cook up a storm of delectable dishes that will truly delight the senses. And if Continental Buffet is what your graduate craves, head to the charming Café Ilang Ilang, a quaint Café that overlooks a picturesque pool and garden area by the glistening waters of Manila Bay. Not to be outdone of course is the hotel’s Cowrie Grill and Ginza as they offer the most succulent steaks and the freshest seafood in town.

“For the entire month of March, our outlets are all geared up to provide graduates and their families an unforgettable gastronomical celebration,” says Leon Keekstra, General Manager of Manila Hotel. “This kind of event happens only once in a lifetime and should be celebrated in a grand way.”

Also this month, however, Manila Hotel’s newest restaurant, Mabuhay Palace, has a unique food festival that feature delicious Australian Abalone dishes prepared in various cooking styles by their master chefs. Harvested from the pristine blue Australian seas, the abalone is known for its briny-sweet accents. Paired with Mabuhay Palace’s culinary expertise, we are positive that our palates will not be disappointed. This promotion is available daily from March 8 to 31, 2010.

Nian Liwanag-Rigor, Assistant Vice President for Corporate Communications of Manila Hotel invites everyone to partake of this limited time offer. “At 50% off, we believe that our Australian Abalone promotion will make our guests clamor to make reservations with us this month. Our abalone dishes are so flavorsome, so succulent, that we are convinced this is one of our best promotions this year.”

Manila Hotel’s other promotions include their monthly Filipino Afternoon Tea which currently features Nueva Ecija delicacies, Cake of the Month, and Cocktails of the Month. Please visit www.manila-hotel.com.ph for more information on these promos.
