There’s a shortage of places to go to and accommodations to book as everyone is on “revenge travel” mode. Let me help you go on a quick day trip with family and friends within Metro Manila.
I visited Al Fresco by Palm Grove at Century Park Hotel Manila on April 1st to try their Unlimited Samgyeopsal package. I was looking forward to dining outdoors under the stars but it rained earlier that day so we were moved indoors (Cafe in the Park).
For only P669 nett per head, we indulged an unlimited variety of red meat including US short beef plate, US short ribs, pork belly strips and marinated pork neck. You know it’s premium quality with the amount of marbling.
It came with side dishes: kimchi. We also enjoyed seasonal items like Hungarian sausages, Wienerli, Cheesy Franks, assorted Taiwanese Balls, and the Mozzarella cheese dip. You also have a choice of drink (a glass of beer, cocktail or mocktail) plus s’mores set for dessert. A la carte items such as Wings and Dips, Smoked Baby Back Ribs, Maldivian Grilled Blue Marlin, Mixed Seafood & Meat Grill Platter and more are also available.
It was a feast for me as I haven’t had Samgyeopsal in a long time (even before pre-pandemic) and it was my birthday a few days prior.
After this satisfying meal, we headed back outdoors for a relaxing soak. Guests who availed of the Unlimited Samgyeopsal package can add P299 per head for pool access (proper swimwear is required). Choose from their temperature-controlled regular pool, lap pool or jacuzzi.
What I love about this promo:
- The quality of ingredients
- I won’t smell like grilled meat after
- I feel safe because I don’t have to dine in a crowded and enclosed place
- It feels like I’m on a mini getaway with the pool access
