Yes, the holiday season is definitely upon us. Throughout the metro, families are planning their Christmas merriments and get-togethers.
Why not have your holiday feast with family and friends at the Novotel’s buffet restaurant Food Exchange Manila?
Food Exchange is the hotel’s premiere buffet restaurant, a culinary theater where talented and renowned chefs demonstrate their skills in frenetic activities across six bountiful and interactive cooking stations: Japanese, Chinese, Indian, grill, international favorites and desserts.
You and your near-and-dears will find many to love and enjoy at Food Exchange, especially during the Christmas season, such as:
One: Its Christmas Carnival theme.
Christmas is all about fun and festivities, and nothing embodies those holiday moods better than a Christmas Carnival. Check out the fun decor that will surely get you in a festive mood.
Two: Its Holiday Cooler.
Specifically for the season, a new non-alcoholic (thank heavens!) mocktail was crafted by the hotel’s mixologists. Dubbed the Holiday Cooler, it is a refreshing mix of fruity and candy flavors. For me, it’s a glass of pure holiday joy.
Three: Its Holiday Buffets
