Global Gastronomic Tour at the Cafe Ilang Ilang

Hello dearies! Year 2011 when Cafe Ilang Ilang was newly renovated, they had a promo we saw in Manila Bulletin.  Me and the hubby availed the 50% off, reserved and went there. Yes, hotel food is known to be not exactly cheap but the price is very worth it. We marveled at the elegant setting and delighted at the vast array of cuisines from around the world. That night, the epicurean in us felt very satisfied. We knew we deserve this.

Last May 20, 2015, I am very lucky to be invited to Cafe Ilang Ilang for lunch. To once again experience the feast in Cafe Ilang Ilang inside the historic Manila Hotel, where visitors experience genuine Filipino hospitality by Manila's most courteous employees.
