Ordering food online has become our welcome reminder of the lifestyle we were once accustomed to before the pandemic. With the restrictions and renewed dine-in operations, food delivery is seeing a sustained momentum. Even food and beverage outlets in hotels had to rethink their strategies to deliver the multi-sensory experience of dining out to those who are stuck at home.
Whether you miss professionally prepared food or are hungry for variety, here’s a roundup of hotels and their to-go offerings:
Waterfront Cebu City Hotel and Casino
The hotel’s feast platters are just some of its to-go options for a safe and worry-free dining experience at home. The trays are good for six to eight persons each and feature some of the hotel’s best-selling dishes like the beef Stroganoff, pata piñato, seafood palabok al nero, oriental chicken pasta and baked beef burrito.
Savoy Hotel Mactan Newtown
With flavors like crispy tofu chipotle, pork carne asada, beef birria, chicken fajita and Baja fish, there’s no need to limit taco consumption to just one day a week. Inspired by Mexican flavors and created through the ingenuity of the hotel’s culinary team, Savoy Hotel’s tacos will be a crowd pleaser at your next indoor event.
Bluewater Maribago Beach Resort
If a Filipino barbecue platter is what appeals to you and your guests most, this “bilao” from Bluewater Maribago is a smart pick with its flavor-packed grilled meats that include chicken and pork barbecue, pork belly, tanigue, chicken inasal and chorizo. The platter comes with pancit canton, inasal fried rice and a side of eggplant salad and pickled papaya.
Seda Ayala Center Cebu
The hotel offers tasty takeaway items from Misto, its all-day dining restaurant. The options for its “Food-to-Go” boxes range from a la carte dishes to set menus. Each set menu includes a salad, an entree, vegetables, a side dish and the dessert of the day. Homegrown favorites are the sinuglaw and Cebuano humba, while the must-tries for the international set are the grilled salmon and baby back ribs.
Quest Hotel and Conference Center Cebu
Virtual meetings can be made more special with Quest Hotel’s “Take Eat Easy” food boxes which can be customized according to your client, budget and preference. Each comes with a bento meal, bread, a sandwich and up to three desserts. Options for the mains include beer-battered fish, braised beef and herbed chicken, among others. The bread, sandwich and dessert options abound too.
Radisson Blu Cebu
Takeaway boxes may be plenty, but Radisson Blu’s to-go meals come in self-heating boxes so you can easily enjoy your food hot in just five minutes. From the hotel’s kitchen to your table, an assortment of dishes are on offer including appetizers, comfort food classics, salads, native specialties, ribs and steak, seafood, pan-Asian and even vegetarian.
Waterfront Airport Hotel and Casino
The “1 Airport Road” is the hotel’s to-go food box that allows customers to mix and match based on their cravings. Typical lunch meetings and at-home celebrations can be leveled up with Italian, Filipino, American, Japanese or Chinese dishes from Waterfront Mactan’s kitchen. The box includes a soup, a salad, a main dish and dessert. Highly recommended are the hotel’s innovative Filipino dishes.
