I've been busy with family matters lately and I am finding it difficult to sit down and blog. Please forgive us for the lack of posts. Hopefully, everything falls in to place soon so I can relax my weary mind and start enjoying the summer before Bianca gets busy with all her planned activities.
Thank goodness for friends who provided a welcome distraction by planning this super fun lunch date at the Spectrum at Fairmont Hotel, Makati. It's always good to catch up with good friends. All the food and laughter we shared certainly cheered me up. Thank you!
The Spectrum buffet was actually on our 23 Restaurants last summer. We didn't get a chance to go then, but I'm glad we're finally ticking it off. That makes Spectrum no. 22 on the list, leaving us with Zubuchon in Cebu City as the only restaurant we haven't tried yet. We might not get to go to Cebu anytime soon, but I'm hoping we could ask someone to hand carry some dishes for us from their outlet at the Cebu airport. We'll keep you posted!
Spectrum is an all-day dining restaurant featuring an array of cuisines from across the globe. Dishes are prepared in an open kitchen so you can easily request for made to order food such as stir fried noodles, pasta and pizza.
Here are some highlights of the food we had.....
Honey Station with live bees!
Roast beef and Porchetta.
Fresh Manila Clams.
White Chocolate Raspberry ice cream.
Cafe Macaron at Fairmont Hotel
Since we were already at Fairmont, we decided to also drop by Cafe Macaron. Serving an array of gourmet sandwiches, bakery items, cakes and handcrafted macarons, it's the perfect place to enjoy a cup of coffee with their sweet or savoury offerings. We experienced excellent and attentive service here and we'll definitely be visiting this outlet again soon.
Cafe Macaron's unique selection includes flavors such as White Chocolate Calamansi, Dark Chocolate Panucha, and Apricot Pistachio macarons.
Assorted local fruit jams from Antonio's and The Fruit Garden.
